A Tangle of Life at Nolte

“Blue skies ahead,” my eternally optimistic husband said. “Let’s go out for a walk.” “Are you sure?” I replied. “It’s pouring down rain.” Still we made the drive to Black Diamond for lunch and waited for the rain to slow. When it did we… Continue Reading “A Tangle of Life at Nolte”

Some words I don’t use

LOL.  No, don’t use it.  I envy people who do. So convenient and concise. But it’s not for me. I tried it once and felt like an imposter. Haha, no problem.  Heehee, occasionally.  LOL? Lol? …

Home is Where the Lap Is

After years and years and generations of cats it was finally time to replace the old chair in my office. I was waiting to see how Benji would react as nobody enjoyed that chair as much as he did. I found the perfect replacement. … Continue Reading “Home is Where the Lap Is”

Reflections on Fall

Still Brothers

This is Tiger and today is human Father’s Day.  Even though I don’t know where my father is, and I am not a father, still I am a big brother to Benji.  I think it is important to remember what we have instead of being… Continue Reading “Still Brothers”

Today’s Reflections from Benji

Good Morning to humans everywhere and especially to Sue, my paws down favorite. Today I am in a reflective mood, pondering the mysterious intersection of the feline life and the human life.  It is a wonderful intersection indeed, though not always easy. We get along well… Continue Reading “Today’s Reflections from Benji”
