Please welcome Zoey the Cool Cat….

Picture of the Moment

Late last night I was trying to find or create a spokesperson for my new venture, Photographic Art by Russel Ray Photos. I was getting frustrated because I wasn’t making any progress. Whenever I’m trying to get something done but not making progress, I will quit and go take a catnap.

A catnap lets me refresh without losing focus from sleeping for too many hours, not that I could ever sleep for “too many hours” anyway. About the longest I ever sleep is four hours. Then, instead of rolling around in bed trying to get back to sleep like I used to do when I was ten, I’ll just get up and do something constructive.

Getting up from my catnap last night was very difficult because Zoey the Cool Cat had decided to take her catnap in the middle of my back.

That’s when it hit me!

My new spokesperson, er, spokescat:

I dream of a house full of photographic art.

Isn’t it amazing how our pets help us out in soooooooo many ways?

If you want to see Zoey the Cool Cat in action on a regular basis as the new representative of Photographic Art by Russel Ray Photos, we have a new WordPress site at It’s a self-hosted blog so I had to install a LIKE button and it may or may not be working at any one time. Got some work to do still there. Leave a short comment if the LIKE button isn’t working!

Added with edit at 7:40 p.m. Pacific Time: The LIKE button appears to be working now.

    Since neither the “like” button nor the “reply” function seem to work (for me now), I”ll do it here:
    I like the new blog and welcome, Zoey!

    She’ll have to get in touch with kangaroo spokes person, Gerard DepaRoo. perhaps they can do lunch and talk photo art. 🙂

      Oooooooh. Now you have her all excited, as if she wasn’t already with her new position. But to meet Gerard DepaRoo is a lifelong dream of hers, and since she sleeps 20 hours a day, I suspect she’s dreamed a lot about Gerard!…..LOL

        Gerard will knock her socks off, he’s suave, tall and muscled, with a French accent. At 20 hours sleep a day I don’t hold much hope for any meaningful interaction, he can’t tweet or text. 😉

      The front page shows most recent posts, so you either have to click on the title of the post you want to go to or lick on “Leave a reply,” which is at the tope of a post instead of after the post where it really belongs. I’ll continue to look for a good theme because I’m not completely satisfied with that one. Interesting that it’s the same theme I have here, but the two themes work differently depending on whether you are at or self-hosted.
