I want to be a cat!
Lucy the Cat
March 2011
Oh to be a cat....
just think of that!
Sleeping on whatever pleases
while dreaming of tasty meeses.
Carelessly shedding furry hairs
and lounging on the sunny stairs
No chores for me-no siree
my life is aimless- so carefree
To be a cat would be a laugh
No bosses here- as I have staff !!

Lucy Snoozin'
March 2011
I thought it would be fun to repeat a post
from when Lucy was still a new kitty.
She arrived on our doorstep in late fall of 2010.
Six months old, borderline feral and happy to 
come into our home where we have been waiting
on her ever since!
Back then I participated in a poetry blog called
Jingle Potluck Poetry and wrote the above poem for Lucy!  
Have a lovely weekend!
Thanks Sandee for Feline Friday!

It's Awww Monday! August 13, 2018

Earlier this week we were in Portland, Oregon
visiting friends and family. We spent a few hours
at the Portland Art Museum's classy exhibit
of amazing old cars The Shape of Speed.

This Alpha Romeo on exhibit was made the same
year I was born. It's amazing how beautiful all these
cars are compared to todays vehicles. Our cars
may be safer, but they sure don't have that classic look!

Siskiyou Custom Milling in Yreka CA
Curt at Siskiyou Custom Milling is a perfectionist when it comes to providing us with precision milled cedar. And then he is
an amazing animal lover, especially for cats. He took in some adult feral female cats who were pregnant. After their babies were born he had the mothers spayed and he is looking for homes for the kittens. Here are a few of the nine kitties and if you know someone who could take in 2 of them ( they are litter mates ) please pass on the info! Curt is on Facebook also! https://www.facebook.com/Siskiyou-Custom-Milling-llc-57479/
