Today was another beautiful day in the Pocono's. By 10:00 the crisp spring are had nicely warmed to above 55 degrees and I was out on my porch with my second cup of coffee enjoying the view. That was when I spotted my two friends frolicking around on the little island the middle of the river....

No, I didn't get a cat confused with a dog. This is indeed the story about my in counter with Clint the Watch Cat. Clint is usually perched on the rock outside his home. Pretty much the way you see him here. Clint sits there and watches everyone and every thing that comes near the home of his...
