Way Back When

A special cat, who adopted us while we were in transition and asked for very little. A roof over her head and food in her bowl. I will add that she was partial to Mr. G. He fed her turkey, one Thanksgiving Day in 2002. Hey You, whom he named, decided he (Mr. G) was a keeper. Hey You had a few things to teach me, and that she did. She prepared me for the other furry friends, that we would add to our household. I attribute prayer for keeping her alive. Back in March, when Mr. G was away on a trip. I began to see signs of her declining. She lost her appetite, was disoriented and had a seizure. I tried to keep her comfortable, and looked forward to Mr. G’s return. Upon his arrival he took over and before we knew it, she was back on her feet, eating and drinking a little. She was particularly fond of white toy mice. It was amazing to watch how playful she became, even as a senior cat. We all miss you Hey You.. But I have to ask, if you put the word out and sent that rough looking, long haired, grey cat to come and visit us? Please don’t extend the invitation. Lol! Rest in Peace sweet cat..

Texture Tuesday on Wednesday

Since my last post, I am thinking humor. I have been working on my belly laughs and now I have my husband engaging as well. I will keep you posted. Like clock work the days fly by..  Time for Texture Tuesday at Kim Klassen’s beautiful site. We have some pretty, summer action, going on in our small back yard. Kim’s work gives me the incentive to keep trying..

Summer Special: Relearning How to Laugh

When did life get so serious?

Yesterday afternoon, I began to think about laughter. I realized that I have not had a good hearty dose of it lately. I laugh at myself often, but it is not one of those deep belly laughs, that might almost bring moisture to my eyes. As I pondered on this, I thought about the comedians of this generation. I admit, I am old school and that happens when you are born in the fifties. Maybe not for all.. Because of this thinking, I ran through a list of those that made me chuckle from past years.  Some would be considered corny, in this day and age. At this moment, I am thinking about Carol Burnett and her sidekick, Vicki Lawrence. I don’t find humor in much of what is promoted these days. Sigh…
