Here in SoCal, we get a natural weather phenomenon called “May Grey” and “June Gloom,” where a thick marine inversion layer settles in every late afternoon/evening and stays put until mid-morning the next day. Every year, we see disappointed tourists on the news complaining about the lousy beach weather. Do your homework, people — this happens EVERY YEAR. You want sunshine, don’t arrive until at least July. Sometimes the layer is high enough that is comes right up to the edge of our neighborhood at approximately 4,500 feet:

Cisco knows to leave the birds at the birdfeeder alone, but if he sees a squirrel (or chipmunk – he can’t tell them apart) approaching, he barks insanely at them until they leave. It’s his new job. And he takes it VERY SERIOUSLY. I love how he throws his whole body into each bark.

When he’s had a big day, Cisco sleeps like it’s his other Very Important Job.

Can you spot the grouchy old man’s face in these branches? (Sorry, GOM – no offense!)

Looks like Mr. Burns from The Simpsons to me.

Finally, we went to Tecate yesterday and got some of those incredible street tacos. Even snagged a small jar of their chili sauce to bring home! The main plaza there has been undergoing some renovations over the past several months, and they’re almost done. Right next to the Taqueria Los Amigos, there’s a brand-new mural. She’s a bruja (witch) complete with a deer-spirit materializing from the hair-fan she’s holding, and on the far right, you can see some spirits arriving to her summoning (behind the scaffolding – it might not be completed yet). I bet this is an actual person – she’s depicted so realistically, right down to the cataract in her right eye.

Real Horse Whisperer

Rudi Rok, a comedian and animal impressionist, successfully communicates with a colt named Troia who runs toward Rudi every time he neighs. Rudi has previously demonstrated his uncanny talent for mimicking over 30 different animals and even barking at dogs.

Rug-Sliding Laser Cat

Daisy goes crazy for a laser, running in circles so fast that she makes the rug slide with her every move in this charming video by Ben Torode.
