As many of you know, I’m rather challenged when it comes to challenges. Since I retired, I no longer have a calendar on my wall. I’ve been using my cat Maxine’s pill dispenser to tell me what day it is. Such is the life of a procrastinator. But after coming […]
By chance I came across this website and photo challenge: https://shareandconnect.wordpress.com/2021/04/10/lapc-4/ It’s an “old” challenge in that another challenge has already been made, but I consider the find serendipitous nonetheless.

I’m very happy to say that Raji’s transport to the vet on Friday was smoother than I dared hope for. It only took several weeks of stoic patience (on my part) and routine before-meals petting and brushing PLUS one week of frequently feeding him in the new large hard plastic […]
Getting close to that time when our cats will have to work for their food.
The “R” bomb meaning retirement, resignation. Gee, those words really sound kind of depressing, like I’m resigning myself to retiring into oblivion. But that’s not how I see it.
