Sultry Sunday

Autumn is here and there's not so much sun now - we take every opportunity to be out if it is there. Aila in particular lounges.
And she does not like to be disturbed.
Do I need more evidence of how unfriendly she can be ?

Leave me alone to do my sun bathing!

She just wants her privacy!

Doesn't matter if the weather isn't sultry - Aila definitely is!
Meee-Yowww, what a beauty!

We are thankfully at the end of the HOTS of the year. It gets better from now out. September and October are good months. The deck door even stays open sometimes. Being able to just walk outside and inside in October is so nice.

Gorgeous girl! Breathtaking!
Not much sun already? Goodness! Does it mean Tessie will hibernate soon? It seems she just woke up.

Norway wants to give Finland a really big mountain for its birthday

Finland is turning 100 this year and to celebrate the occasion, Norway has confirmed it is considering giving its southern neighbor a mountain as a birthday present. "There are a few formal difficulties and I have not yet made my final decision, but we are looking into it," Norwegian Prime Minister Erna Solberg told the national broadcaster, The Guardian reports.

Although Solberg wouldn't have to move any literal mountains, she would probably have to move a couple bureaucratic ones since it would require slightly tweaking Norway's borders:

At [4,344 feet] above sea level, the highest point in Finland currently lies on a bleak mountain spur known as Hálditšohkka, part of a far larger fell known as Halti, more than 200 miles inside the Arctic Circle.

Halti's summit, at [4,478 feet] high, is [a little over half a mile] away in Norway. But moving the border barely [131 feet] further up the mountainside would put Hálditšohkka's [4,367] summit in Finland — and make the country’s highest point [23 feet] higher. [The Guardian]

Some, though, say the proposal is "a joke" and would actually violate Article 1 of the Norwegian constitution, which asserts that the nation is a "free, independent, indivisible and inalienable realm." Norway doesn't need to hoard its mountains, though; the hilly nation's highest peak, Galdhøpiggen, is a dizzying 8,100 feet.

[i]You know what they say about real estate. Location, location, location!

Do you want it?
