I WIN!?

“Millions saw the apple fall, but Newton was the one to ask why.”  Bernard Baruch We have a rather large but old house, which allows us the luxury of a guest bedroom off our downstairs livingroom.  That is the one room of the house I want cat free.  Nice to have a bed for guests…

EXTRA CATS

“Women and cats will do as they please, and men and dogs should relax and get used to the idea.”  Robert A Heinlein It seems we have two extra cats in our lives.  No, this will not be a recipe. One of the cats lives on our pontoon in the winter and keeps it rodent…

POINT OF VIEW

“Focus on the positive.” This is another in the series of – What you focus on expands.  Here we go again! My husband decided we needed a swing for our deck.  The swing is on a frame, seats three, and has an awning.  It’s lovely.  For some reason I began going out to the swing…

HEAD SHOTS

“Thank you for being there.” I have this bad habit of dwelling on the negative.  A life coach/friend mentioned this to me.  Her cure for this habit was to notice when I’m nurturing a negative thought.  Then, I’m to immediately call up three positive thoughts. She said that this was especially important when the negative…

“What we see depends mainly on what we look for.” The other day my husband saw a sign for a job opening.  The sign read, “Job Opening – Invisible Fence Installer”.  I’m not sure if the person is supposed to be invisible or the fence is invisible.  But I jest. It’s could be rather awkward…
