Case of the Bratty Cat

Recently Koko has been acting out. She’s been bopping poor Jean-Claude in the head especially if they are sharing a window or she wants his seat on the couch. Now I don’t go for this in my house.

If she bops JC then she can’t sit in the window or the chair. In my house we all share and are nice to each other.

Azeena has another take. She calls it the case of sibling rivalry where the little sister torments her older siblings. Either way, I don’t let Koko get away with it. because JC is so sweet and there is plenty of room for both of them in the window.

The Great Escape

Koko and Jean Claude really enjoy their time outdoors at CCL’s new house. Unfortunately Koko really wants to explore the neighborhood and has found several escape routes. CCL has attempted to block the free spaces in her backyard with plastic containers and has installed a warning system (the orange plastic container at the top of the fence). No matter. Yesterday afternoon, Koko managed to escape to her nextdoor neighbors yard and quietly returned when she was ready.

We All Have Days Like L’il Peanut

Posted on

My sister-girlfriend’s dog , Li’l Peanut, was  a tad down recently needing more of my friend’s  attention than normal.  My girlfriend speculates that the dog  is  missing her guardian angel, my friend’s daughter, who was  off to  science camp.   The remedy of course is that Peanut needed  more attention.

L'il Peanut Had the Blues

We all have days like  L’il Peanut.  There are some simple things we can do: pray, read, pray again, call friends who are doing a little worse than we are, volunteer, watch mindless television, read a good book, take a walk but  it’s probably most important to  remember “This Too Shall Pass.”  Spring is officially here.

Bentley’s Pantry Raid

Even Gourmet Cooks Must Have Rest

Even Gourmet Cooks Must Have Rest

The Bentley is a luxury automobile created more than 90 years ago in England. Bentley the dog is owned by my friend Renee and her family.  He clearly likes the finer things in life and he wants his meals and his water prepared just so.  A gourmet for sure.  Recently Bentley went to the pantry to prepare himself a snack.    Renee said her daughter left the pantry door open. But we know better. Bentley  has exquisite manners.  He simply wasn’t able to finish his preparations before she got home.

The results of Bentley's trip to the pantry.

Just a Matter Of

When one is in the midst of fundamental change it is easy to get discouraged. Even daily functions can be hard. Still keep the faith. That’s the answer.

All Right Already- Change

Sometimes change is gradual. We could, almost always until global warming really set in, count on the seasons to change. Snow in the winter. Sun and heat in the summer. But here we are in mid-January and yesterday I still had blooming, thriving snapdragons. It does appear the weather is getting a bit chilly just in time for the Presidential Inaugural. So perhaps without my order God has everything in hand.
