You are using my photograph without permission. (That's my orange cat, Waffles, with the American flag.) As a blogger, I would hope you'd take the time to select photos for your posts that are not copyrighted or owned by someone else. There are thousands of stock photos that can be purchased for pennies, or Creative Commons photos that allow free usage, or you can create images yourself. Just because you find a photo online through a google search, etc...does not mean it doesn't belong to someone. Please understand there is a person, a photographer, an artist on the other side of many photos circulating online. And copyright infringement, whether intentional or not, is never cool.

What a wonderful story!
Each Thursday Ellen of 15andmeowing and
Lorianne of Four-Legged Furballs,
 provide Friendly Fill-in questions.
Ellen came up with the first two questions
and Lorianne came up with the last two questions.
If you need help, please let either Ellen or Lorianne know.

Here are my answers to this weeks questions:

 1. I avoid shopping on Memorial Day.
2. I try to avoid driving during busy holidays.
3. If I had a catchphrase, it would be "life is a banquet and we should enjoy every day".
4. Satisfaction in doing a good job motivated me to work

hard. Now that I am retired I can relax and smile!

Wordless Wednesday! May 22, 2019

Going past Shasta Lake

Early morning in Sausalito.
Looking across the bay towards San Francisco.

Walking towards the Memorial Chapel
at Stanford University.

Another early morning driving back up towards home.
We were on highway 680 leaving Los Altos at 5:30am.
A long trip well worth it to honor our dear friend.

Lucy the Cat has a very hard life....
1.  Lucy has to wake me up for her breakfast.
Sometimes it takes her 5 minutes before I get up!
2.  Lucy has to remind me about her after
breakfast treats.
3.   Lucy then is forced to take a long nap.
4.   Lucy has to remind us that it is time for lunch.
5.  Reminding is hard work and so Lucy has to 
take another long nap.
6.  Lucy has to meow at the outside door before
we will drop everything ( CRASH ) to take her for a walk.
7.  Again Lucy will have to nag us for her dinner.
8.  And so on...........poor pitiful Lucy. It's a hard
life when one is only 12" tall.......
