Before raining cats and dogs, I made a bonus raindrop to add to the Olympics-inspired sights:
This cat and dog duo are non-identical Siamese twins. Behind them, some rings from the Games:
Would you like to play a game?
I placed the Siamese Raindrop in an undisclosed location, within walking distance of some public art. Here's a clue to its secret spot:
"These twins are lit by the flicker of regal planetary rocks circa 1050, and share a bird's eye view of Vancouver-before-Vancouver."
If you're far from Vancouver, feel free to guess! I'll feature the first best guesser in the next blog update, along with the first best photo.
See? We crafty people can compete in games too!

Before game's end, I received this email from Annette in Ontario:
I was awestruck by such an accurate guess, especially from out-of-town!
Here are Catalina and Alfredog at their previously-undisclosed location, enjoying their bird's eye view from a tree near Regal Hotel:
The clue's mention of "flicker" suggests my Flickr photo account, which includes a map to the Siamese Raindrop. "Planetary rocks" refers to the Planet Rock store across the street from the Regal Hotel. Along with those details, Annette's description was spot-on!
Congratulations, Annette! You win Gold in Guessing, so I'm sending you this mini raindrop I made:
And thank you for the great guesses from karen, Kate from England, and *birdee* from Singapore!
Here's a video of more public art on "Vancouver-before-Vancouver" street during the 2010 Olympic games:
By the way, when I was up in the tree, I noticed a familiar face:
Woomi returned safely from space!
Small world, eh?
Thanks for playing the Siamese Sightings game!

Annette gave a tour of Wawa, Ontario to the Mini Raindrop! Here are her fun photos and descriptions:
