Enjoy the intoxicating stench of "new house scent" at your own risk...
The Front Yard area (some bastard won't move his car from our Driveway. Wait. Damnit, that's my car...).
The view from across the "Boulevard" ... Avenue, actually (aka - our swell neighbors, The Kroll's house).
The Front Door and Living Room area (a Triffid-like creature invaded this frame despite my protestations).
The Stairway to many wondrous rooms above (complete with dueling Chat Noirs! Pouvez-vous voir les chats?).
The Living Room proper (there is no bird in that cage, by the way; we think that one of the chat noirs must've gotten to it).
And, there's a Bamboo Garden with another raised swing chair so the mosquitoes can't reach us (pffff...).
In the Backyard there's a tomato garden a-bloomin' (a-fruitin'??) and one raised-lumber enclosure in progress... don't even get me started about the "lawn"! Hey, do you know how hard it is to grow grass in Texas!?
Loki helps with some of that lawn irrigation... (n.b. - she's buried one of the cats right where she's doing her business...).
Speaking of cats, let's go Upstairs, shall we? Watch out for them kitties, though! I swear to god Marley will trip you while Anubis pushes you from behind to encourage your rapid downward momentum...
The Master Bedroom (yes, the dog sleeps with us ... we fit comfortably in the crate and she lets us out in the morning ... most days).
The Office (and Cat Room)...
... functions as the Guest Bedroom, too (don't mind the Cat Room part ... seriously, we keep the litter box downstairs).
The "Entertainment" Room (fishtanks are more interesting than television sets).
Exit through the Entertainment Room's French Doors and out onto the upstairs Deck (see the catnip plant in corner...? I kid you not).
The Zen-like Treehouse Deck (bamboo canopy shields us from the onslaught of incoming egg attacks from our neighbors).
Well, that pretty much completes the tour (aside from the two-and-a-half Bathrooms; I just always thought photographing toilets was a touch ... gauche, ya know?).
Ya'll come down and visit us sometime, ya hear?
