Last evening Jack and I were driving to a friend's house for dinner and had gotten into "discussion" about moving. Jack owns an antique store/gallery and has been there for 20 years. I want to believe that he can close his shop, or sell it, and move easily to a new town/life, and he says… Continue reading Birds as messengers
Last summer, when the little feral kitten "Wonder" found his way to us, I had to work really hard, in my mind, to not jump into the fear of who in the world would want a wild kitten? I took a picture of him and wrote about it on this blog. That same day was the… Continue reading Welcome Home
I just had to share this photograph of Wonder with you today! What a perfect lazy-summer image to ponder as I go off for a little nap myself! I will no longer be posting here about him because his new family has set up a Facebook page with updates and pictures! I don't seem to… Continue reading Sunday nap

Yesterday, after she ate, she started playing with Jack's wet, dirty boots and socks that he had left on the floor. She also let me pet her while she ate, and then she… Continue reading Eat, Play….Love!
I set Wonder's food bowl out this morning and was able to catch a photo (through the window) of her coming out of the bushes for breakfast. She is so cute that I want to pick her up and hug her. She clearly does not want that... won't even let me get within 3 feet… Continue reading Good morning Wonder!
I got up later than Jack this morning. He was sitting in the living room drinking coffee as I came down the stairs and the first thing he said was, "You would not believe what happened last night!" I could tell it was going to be a good story so I poured my coffee and… Continue reading The “Wonder” of it all. ….and a little contest!
