  • I hate change!

    Last year, we became quasi-temporary guardians of our youngest daughter’s two cats, Mohawk and Target.
    I say quasi-temporary because the daughter has since moved out after staying with us for a year, but the cats are still with us.
    Once our daughter left, we decided to move the cats’ litter box from the guest bathroom to the now-empty spare bedroom.
    To us humans, that’s a simple change, but not to the cats.

  • Winter interest, plants with berries

    December has ushered in some seasonal weather with daytime temperatures hovering in the 40s.  For us, this is perfect winter weather to work in.  Brisk, but not too cold, it can be invigorating for animals and people alike.  The sheep and the big dogs seem to prefer it, in fact.  The playful frolicking is proof!

    Tuggle, who led the Braves in the Nov. 29 win against Ryle in overtime with 17 points, led all scorers with 27 points.  
    He was hot from the field and the foul line.
