electric blue chalk

Earlier in the week, Erin and I and some friends of ours went to a park and grilled. There was around a thousand children at this park as well as one piece of electric blue sidewalk chalk.

I brought it home and drew a monster in my driveway.

The cat appears in imminent danger ...

"Half a league half a league,

Half a league onward,

All in the valley of Death

Rode the kitty:

'Forward, the Kitty!

Charge for the guns' she said:

Into the valley of Death

Rode the kitty.

'Forward, the Light Brigade!'

Was there a kitty dismay'd ?

Not tho' the kitty knew

Some one had blunder'd:

Hers not to make reply,

Hers not to reason why,

Hers but to do & die,

Into the valley of Death

Rode the kitty.

Cannon to right of her,

Cannon to left of her,

Cannon in front of her

Volley'd & thunder'd;

Storm'd at with shot and shell,

Boldly she rode and well,

Into the jaws of Death,

Into the mouth of Hell

Rode the kitty.

Flash'd all her sabres bare,

Flash'd as they turn'd in air

Sabring the gunners there,

Charging an army while

All the world wonder'd:

Plunged in the battery-smoke

Right thro' the line they broke;

Cossack & Russian

Reel'd from the sabre-stroke,

Shatter'd & sunder'd.

Then they rode back, but not

Not the kitty.

Cannon to right of her,

Cannon to left of her,

Cannon behind her

Volley'd and thunder'd;

Storm'd at with shot and shell,

While horse & hero fell,

She that had fought so well

Came thro' the jaws of Death,

Back from the mouth of Hell,

All that was left of her,

Left of the kitty.

When can her glory fade?

O the wild charge she made!

All the world wonder'd.

Honour the charge she made!

Honour the Light Brigade,

Noble kitty!

The photos with the cat are a treat; how'd you train it to do that!?

Connie, she's our outside Kitty. A stray that adopted us a couple years ago. She's very affectionate and wanders around clearing the area of any creature smaller than her.
