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..

Proverbs 31:25-31

Strength and honor are her clothing;

She shall rejoice in time to come.

She opens her mouth with wisdom,

And on her tongue is the law of kindness.

She watches over the ways of her household,

And does not eat the bread of idleness.

Her children rise up and call her blessed;

Her husband also, he praises her:

Many daughters have done well,

But you excel them all.

Charm is deceitful and beauty is passing,

But a woman who fears the Lord,

she shall be praised.

Give her of the fruit of her hands,

And let her own works praise her in the gates..

 

Then I heard a voice from heaven saying to me, Write: Blessed are the dead who die in the Lord from now on. Yes, says the spirit, that they may rest from their labor, for their deeds will follow them.

Downtown, in this very humble place..

Just a side note.. The small point and shoot camera I am using is on it’s way out. I am having to crop a black smudge in the photos. This camera has been very well used and very handy, but not all things last forever.

Albany Visitors Association

I recently paid a visit to this visitor’s center on Veteran’s Day. It was my first time there and I was quickly greeted with Oregonian style hospitality. We were in town for the parade and I had about an hour before the parade started. I decided to explore. The street sidewalks were filling up with chairs and people, so I ambled on my way, destination unknown at the time. This window display caught my eye and there I stayed long enough to chat with the gracious ladies that offered me a hot beverage. I was too excited to eat or drink anything at the time, because I wanted to take a few pictures, to capture the gorgeous carousel horse. This horse named Lightning and the fish will eventually be housed in a building that is being constructed. I definitely will go back at another time, so that I can look at the many brochures at my leisure. I highly recommend visiting this Albany, Oregon, visitors center, if you need any kind of information on what to do or where to go while in the area.
