Let Me Out Of Here

It was moving day and Miss Tobie, our grandcat, was not sure she liked her new home. At the new apartment, we placed her in the cloth kennel so she wouldn’t run out the door as the moving truck was unloaded. A few years before this, she had fallen asleep in the window, the screen […]

Daisy and Dagwood

Hershey was sitting on the couch when he got up and went over to Holan and laid his head on her lap it. He hates sweaters but with his Arthritis in his back he has to wear them. At 14 years old, he has also started taking pain meds.

A New Pad

Our hot tub broke. We went out one night to get in and the water temp was 54 with the air temp around 40. Don, the hot tub guy, came out and said the heat pump was bad. So a new tub was in our future but first Steve decided to have a new concrete […]
