THANK YOU VETERANS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

Thank you to all the veterans, their families, active military and to those who paid the ultimate price. It is because of you and your predecessors who fought and still fight for freedom.

Below the last picture, you’ll find a poem thanking all veterans. Hope you read it. Because if you’re like me then you’ll feel the same way I do. My dad is a veteran so yes, saying thank you to a veteran means a lot.

THANK YOU VETERANS

Thank you veterans for all

You do. Thank you for 

Fighting for our freedom so

Precious and rare. Thank you

For the sacrifices you have 

made for there are many.

The only thing I can do is

Just thank you. I know

It doesn’t come close to

For all the sacrifices you’ve

Made. So the best I can do

Is just say thank you veterans.

Fall Is Here

Fall arrived September 23 and the weather we are getting here in my little town in PA has gotten colder too. In fact, we just had our first killing frost which means our Blue and Purple Morning Glories are black. Literally cooked.

QUEEN DAISY MAE SHOWING OFF HER GREY AND WHITE BELLY.

Hi all, you know I just had my 13th birthday. Well my Human Mom told me I could take over this post and if I do well, I can do it again sometime. So I ask you purrty please, please tell my Human Mom how well I did. Thank you all in advance. Now onto Friday Fill – Ins.

1. I think it would be fun to travel but not sure I really want to.

2. I have a hankering for friendship and sleep and lots of it.

3. Getting stuck in a hole/ tunnel in the Basement is a memory I’ll never forget.

4. If I were given the choice to immortal, I would pass on the opportunity. You see, I miss all my sisters and would want to see them and make sure they’re doing their jobs correctly. Also, I’ve liked my life through now and just love my Human family who gave me a furrever home. They’re purry special to me.

TIGGER

ANGEL QUEEN TIGGER ON MY BED WITH MY WHITE STUFFED CAT AND MY WHITE STUFFED POLAR BEAR.

If you’re looking at the title Title Tigger and wondering who is that? Tigger was my last cat. None of you got to meet my Grey Striped Tabby cat Tigger because she died on 9-11-2015 and I didn’t start blogging until January 2017.

In a nutshell, my family and I rescued Tigger out of a very bad situation she was in all through her kittyhood. She didn’t like men for whatever reason. I’m happy to say she eventually made friends with Daisy Mae and in the end made friends with my Dad too.

I wanted to do a tribute to my last cat Tigger who was a Grey Striped Tabby Cat. Tigger died on September 11, 2015 and this year marks the fourth year death anniversary. 

I miss Tigger daily as well as think of her daily. I look for a whole lot of Butterflies on 9-11 to celebrate her life.

I wanted to do do something special for Tigger so I wrote a poem for her.

A PICTURE OF ANGEL TIGGER WHO WENT TO THE RAINBOW BRIDGE ON ON 9-11-2015. SHE’S FOREVER IN OUR HEARTS.

TIGGER  

TIGGER you were a beautiful 

And smart Grey Striped Tabby

Cat that had a bad kittyhood 

But despite that you survived

Because my family and I took

You in. You hid in my bedroom

Closet when we first got you

But as you adjusted you came

To love us just as we loved you.

Tigger, you had this cute little

Heart On your nose. OH how you

Liked To play with string with a

Feather on it and OH did you ever

Like laying on wrapping paper too.

I even remember how you liked to be 

Under our feet all the time.  I still

Laugh and chuckle when I think of

How You kicked at  your litter all

Over the place when you were

Doing your kitty cat business.

Your eyes were dark with yellow

Around them. Even though it’s been

4 years since you earned your

Wings and crossed over the Rainbow

Bridge. When a Monarch Butterfly

Shows up with its beautiful wings. I

Know when I see A bunch of

Butterflies, A flock of birds,

Hummingbirds staying together as if

To say I’m here for you and don’t be

To upset or mad because it rains or

Snows. You see the Rain and the

Snow are your friends not to

Mention when it Rains and Snows

That’s me Angel Tigger sitting on

Your shoulder and saying, I’m here

To make sure You and the Family are

OK. I love you very much

Tigger and always will.

You left pawprints on my heart!!

Daisy Mae’s Birthday Month

DAISY MAE AS A KITTEN LAYING ON MY TONY STEWART FLEECE BLANKET THAT’S ON ME.
QUEEN DAISY MAE SHOWING OFF HER GREY AND WHITE BELLY.

Hi all, September is Daisy Mae’s Birthday Month roughly. I say roughly we had to guess when we she found us. If we are figuring right, Daisy Mae was around 4 weeks when we got her. We do know she’s been alive 13 years with us come September 12th a day after we lost my other cat Tigger. So Daisy Mae spent a few years with us while we still had Tigger.

ANGEL QUEEN TIGGER ON MY BED WITH MY WHITE STUFFED CAT AND MY WHITE STUFFED POLAR BEAR.

This is what Daisy Mae has asked and of course, I couldn’t say no. She wants to party all month and would like you to visit us especially on September 12. Consider yourselves invited to her 13th birthday party.  Hope to see you there. We’ll be celebrating all month.

I’m going to show you a picture of Daisy Mae all ready for her birthday party.

1. My favorite Peanuts character is Snoopy.

2. I knew I was no longer a child when Oh this is a tough one. My feeling is even though I’m an adult I’m still a kid at heart and that has helped me through adulthood.

2. I knew I was no longer a child when I stopped doing zoomies.

3. I was shocked when I learned that I had some writing talent and when I met Maya Angelou for a class at a meet and greet when I was in college many moons ago.

3. I was shocked when I learned that “sister” Tigger had crossed over to the Rainbow Bridge on 9-11-2015. I was so shocked when Sister Mom Crystal told me, I didn’t want to believe it.

4. I always feel frustrated when I try to cook something and follow the directions exactly but yet it doesn’t come out right.

Fawn/Deer Pictures + Bonus Picture

STC_0031

A little while ago I had gotten a picture of Mamma deer and her one fawn. Since then, 2 more fawns have shown up and since the trail camera went kablooey we got a new one and the pictures are much better.  Then of course it might have to with the fact its an upgraded version, it has High Definition, it has infrared picture taking and is it waterproof too? That’s a good question. I thought I would share some pictures from the new trail camera. The brand name is Stealth Camera 14. The first few Pictures are from the Moultrie Trail Camera then the last few are on the Stealth Camera 14 trail camera.

Short Story Review: Euphoria in the Desert

I read the ARC for this short story called Euphoria in the Desert. This short story was not only fun and witty but it was also clean and I think you would like it. I found it easy to read and a page turner. It kept my attention and I didn’t want to put it down. I rate this short story 5 stars. 

Bookbub Book Excerpt 

2019-08-24 (1)

So if you KU (Kindle Unlimited), read it or you can buy the book at Amazon.com. Not sure what the price is internationally but in Amazon US it is $.99. How long that price will last well I really don’t know. I really enjoyed this short story. It’s unpredictable.
