I wanted to do a lot of different things for you because they changed things. They put things in a different language not English and no matter How many times I pushed the button that said English it didn’t help. The slideshow I originally planned didn’t work because the thing that said create your slideshow would only take one picture. Well maybe we’ll have more luck next week. Any how, I eventually went with the bloggif photo effect called in my terminology the mirror effect. Enjoy the photos.

SMALLS GETTING READY TO GO TO SLEEP ON MY FLEECE KITTY BLANKET.
As you can see I worked with Smalls picture this week and from left to right to bottom this is how they go. I mirrored Smalls picture with no frame(on left), Smalls picture mirrored with frame(on right) and the original picture of Smalls I used(on bottom).
For a while now I’ve been debating to write on this topic or not. My mission is to get everyone to make good choices not bad choices. Some of you may not like what I have to say in this post and you may disagree with my opinion and that’s OK because we are allowed to have our own opinions whether we agree or not. Now on with the post.
I don’t know about those who live somewhere other than the USA, but there seem to be more commercials in between tv programs. The commercials I’ve been seeing lately is what inspired me to write this post. Those particular commercials are about calling drugs a disease. That’s right, I said disease. But are drugs really a disease or just a very bad choice? These commercials seem to think they are disease. Before I tell you my opinion and why I feel this way let’s look at the definitions of Choice and Disease.
Disease: a disorder of structure or function in a human, animal, or plant, especially one that produces specific signs or symptoms or that affects a specific location and is not simply a direct result of physical injury. (Noun)
Choice: An act of selecting or making a decision when faced with two or more possibilities.
My opinion is that drugs are a very bad choice and not a disease. I took plenty of time to make sure this is what I really felt because I get angry at commercials like this and yell at the television even though they can’t hear me. Why do I feel this way? I feel this way because if you really think about it, you’re making a choice to do drugs or not to do drugs. A choice not a disease. Oh sure you can rationalize that it’s a disease by telling yourself and convincing yourself because it’s considered an epidemic it should be called a choice but it’s really a choice because you choose to do drugs or not.
In conclusion, this not only applies to drugs but to alcohol, smoking and many other things too but I’m focusing on drug commercials right now.
If you have a relative, friend or just know someone who needs help there are plenty phone numbers sites on the internet you can go to and there is help for family and friends. There are even support groups for you too.
Previously, I showed you some pictures that my sister and her family took that she sent me. The pictures are of their friend’s cows with Make America Great Again hats on the cows. If you haven’t seen the posts you can view and read them by going to MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!! and MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!!. You will notice that I have made the links the same. That’s because they’re from two different sites.
Below are more pictures of the farmshow since the end of the farmshow is Saturday, August 11, 2018.
No I didn’t get a new cat. The exact opposite actually. You see the cat you see to the left has a story to tell. I’m happy to say this story has a happy ending. This little kitty’s story all starts when she is walking along side of the road. How this cat there I don’t know. That will probably always remain a mystery. Then as fate would have it, two highschool graduates(my niece and her friend) were on their way home when my niece saw something moving. They stopped the car and found this kitten who could just barely hold its head up and they both knew they had to do something. They automatically ‘scooped’ the kitten up and took her to my niece’s house.
As it turns out the next step was to get this kitten to the vet and find out what’s wrong with it. Since my niece is an intern at a veterinarian clinic she took the kitten there and found out this dear little kitten was just full of fleas and other things I’m not sure of. Because there were so many fleas they had to get rid of the blankets they used. The vet took care of this kitten and the kitten is doing better.
When my niece and her family took the kitten in temporarily they thought it was a she and so they called it a she for the longest time. Then just the other day my niece took her to the vets and the workers just loved her but then found out it wasn’t a she but a he. Well at least the name they gave the kitten fits both male or female. They named the kitten Smalls because he was so tiny. I’m happy and pleased to say Smalls is eating better and gaining weight.
Now the next things on the list is to get him neutered when he’s the right age and find someone to take him. Since the vet has estimated the age of the kitten at 10-14 weeks old, he has to be older to get neutered. However, finding someone to take this kitten was easier than anyone thought it would be. Yes that means he has his furever home. Yeah!!
Something to remember though even though this kitten was very fortunate and found a furever home quickly this doesn’t happen often. I hope other cats and other animals find their furever home soon.
Below is a slideshow of Small’s selfies.
Sticking with the story about Smalls the kitten, I decided to do my Sparks relating to problems.
We all have problems some worse than others. However some people just can’t see the positive side. Actually what we need to find out for ourselves is problems are just stepping-stones to our real destination. Always look on the positive side no matter how small it may seem. Like this kitten it kept moving with just a flicker of hope. That flicker of hope got the kitten a furever home.
So remember when your down in the dumps don’t Mope or have a pity party for yourself instead celebrate the fact you’re still alive and able. Another thing to remember is if a flicker of hope got a kitten a home imagine what a little bit of hope can get us. Look on the positive side and you will see the silver lining.
Below are our Yucca Plants in flowering bloom. The pictures were taken before we went on vacation the middle of the month in 2018. Sadly their beautiful blooms have died off until 2019. Please enjoy the pictures.
OTHER FLOWERS IN BLOOM
**Please Note** All pictures were taken by Crystal Stewart. I hope you enjoy the pictures.
I got this picture of what looks like a squirrel looking into the trail camera. I showed it to both Mom and Dad and got two different opinions. What a surprise. Mom agrees with me it’s a squirrel and dad doesn’t agree it’s a squirrel. What do you think? I personally think it’s a cool picture either way. I would sure love to know what you think. Please let me by putting your opinion in the comment section or by using the contact form provided below. Below is the Picture. **Please Note that the time is 9:37 PM Eastern Time*. Odd Hah?
