New Closet Floor, a set on Flickr.
This is the closet made from an enclosed porch. It extends to become a library on one end and connects to the spare bedroom on the other. The old fiberboard had caved in and in his last months Tigger confused it with his catbox. Now it has new plywood and tiles. We just have to move the closet racks to their final places.

A colleague at work told me about the Destroyermen series. It sounds crazy. A WWII destroyer near Indonesia goes through a mysterious squall while fighting a Japanese battleship. It ends up in an alternate universe where dinosaurs are still roaming. The ship and its crew ally themselves with the Lemurian race in their fight for survival against the reptilian Grik race. It sounds crazy, but the story and the characters are very engaging. In each book the alternate universe expands as we meet more people and creatures in this new world. There are also some really exciting, if improbable battle scenes.
I have just finished the fifth book and am about to start the sixth.

When I came home from walking the dogs I noticed a big flock of wild turkeys in the corn field across the street. They were all over the field, foraging for among the corn stalks. By the time I got the cameras and came back I think they had had enough. The birds quickly started running back into the forest. I hope they come back again.
