Here Kitty, Kitty! A Trip to the National Capital Cat Show

We took some time out from our busy schedules to visit the National Capital Cat Show at the Dulles Expo Center in Chantilly, Virginia. Nearly 400 cats competed in this weekend long event. This year's featured breeds were the Cornish Rex and the Himalayan. We snapped a bunch of photos for you to enjoy of the different cats.

The floor was packed with all sorts of cats. Big cats, little cats, furry cats, and naked cats all were competing for ribbons in their different classes. Some were shy but many of the cats seemed to smile for us as we took there photograph.

Just about every breed could be found on the show floor. It was really torturous not to be able to pet every cat but these are working cats. Touching is discouraged and only at the permission of the owners. Cat shows are probably not a good place for little children.

After a little last minute grooming it is off to the judging ring.

Judging is fast and efficient. This is probably the best place to get a good look at the cats outside their cages. You will need to pick which breed you are interested in because there are eight rings with simultaneous judging.

There is even an agility ring competition where owners take their cats through an obstacle course. This area is really fun to watch.

And then there are those crazy cat owners that dress their cats up for the cat fashion show.

If you like cats, then the National Capital Cat Show is a fun event to attend. Get out of your cage and enjoy yourself.

NCL Norwegian Pearl Cruise to Alaska - The Haven Courtyard

If you ever have a chance to sail to Alaska, do it! If you can save up a little more to be able to stay in The Haven Courtyard on Norwegian Cruise Lines, do it! For our anniversary Peg and I decided we would take our first cruise to Alaska. NCL sales called us, last minute, and offered us a deal to upgrade to a penthouse in The Haven Courtyard aboard the Norwegian Pearl. We did and it was fantastic! The Bird of Paradise Courtyard Suite Room 14014 (an S5 level penthouse suite) would be our home for the seven day cruise which started in Seattle, Washington.


Hendersonville Cars and Coffee Photos

Over 300 cars showed up early, starting at 8:00 AM, for the recent Hendersonville Cars and Coffee cruise-in. World of Clothing in Hendersonville, NC hosted the event and cars were spread out all across their large parking lot.

Photos from Craig Naff's Hotrod Body Shop with Ron Covell

It's not often that you get the chance to hang out with one of the world's best hotrod metal shapers, Craig Naff. Add to that the fact that Ron Covell, a fantastic metal fabricator and instructor, would be teaching a class in Craig's shop and you have the potential for a fantastic Saturday. I made the drive over to Craig's shop on the outskirts of Woodstock, VA early in the morning using Ron Covell's Basic Metal Shaping class as an excuse to get out of the house.
