and who's the most handsome cat ... ever ?? uh huh you guessed it - Oliver

The feral boys, Bleet and Gussie Gus declined a photo op at this time.

CB: I'm just going down into the basement to check on something
Moi: Certainly, and take your time my Prince (oATG)*

The cowboy has another woman in his life - her name - the basement.

His basement, our basement. He must be with her several times each day. He checks on her regularly, he fusses about her and I catch him standing down there often, in a corner, venerating the beautiful drain and/or the constant petite stream of clear water running toward it and watching it finally seep through the silt filtering, attractive, grey gravel that now fills the square drainage depression in the floor. Oliver hangs out with the cowboy, dans la beautiful basement - helping, encouraging and tres grateful for this newly opened exploration and spider hunting opportunity - for he too is in love with this subterranean world (as are the feral boys). The cowboy flirts with the boiler, he tinkers and toils, he's in love with the old stone foundation and he adores the smooth, level and solid (mostly dry and clean) concrete floor. And oh ! how he relishes the spaciousness of the near empty lower level of this old brick house.

I love her too and I am nothing but delighted to share my cowboy with her.

How can it be that I now have a beautiful basement ? Dreams ... they really do come true.
