Up and Over

Shadow is very athletic, as many outdoor cats tend to be. He he is going up and over my brother’s neighbor’s fence. It’s your average fence, probably 4 feet high. He makes it look like nothing. Alas, he fence jumping, bug chasing days are over. He went to the vet the other day and is…

Apple Bulletin Board

I try to rotate the bulletin board over my changing table every few months. Since it’s fall, I decided to go with an apple theme. Well, that’s not totally true. I found the apple boarder at Dollar Tree and knew I had to do something with it. I used to say that I don’t have…

Winter Wonderland — Take 3

This was the view out my back porch on Wednesday morning. Gotta love “Spring” in Cleveland. And you know we had just put the snowblower in the shed. Actually, most of the snow had melted by evening. When I woke up on Thursday, the scene was pretty much the same. I decided there was no…
