my cat loves fresh cut flowers

I went to visit a friend in Calera, Alabama. Which is Alabama country. I saw Queen Anne’s lace & Black-eyed Susans on the side of the road. When i stopped & chopped them using a key to the house, i found a Scottish thistle…which are super sharp. They look a bit wilted here, but they…

the queen makes the chessboard

My parents went to Scotland last September. They brought back stories of their adventures & photographs as proof of them. They also brought back a name of an author who writes a series of mysteries that take place on the Isle of Lewis. There was a tour of locations of the Isle of Lewis that…

I’ve had a lot of trouble with my neck for a very long time. Most days i spent on the couch. Bored & angry at my inability to contribute anything to anyone. I was very depressed at being so useless…except one day in December, I heard meowing at my front door. It was a kitten….

the mischievous Gatsby

Do you want to play a game? No, thank you, sir. Focus is soft, but i am showing it anyway because he looks like he has a Santa beard. One curtain down, the other to go. I’ve never had a cat that really knocked things of flat surfaces before. I’ve owned lots of cats over…
