Since it is Halloween, I thought I would tell you about our two new kittens who could be Halloween cats. We got them two weeks ago, but we didn’t plan on getting black cats. I don’t even like black cats, and the lady who was fostering these kittens, along with several others, had told me […]

Friday’s Odds and Ends

Posted by mcm0704 on October 21, 2011 |

In Texas, the Sons of Confederate Veterans want to have a license plate commemorating their part in the Civil War; a request that has raised all kinds of responses, most of them negative, and some downright strident.
