Cats And Egos And Power Struggles

Posted by mcm0704 on February 11, 2019 |

Every late winter/early spring I used to pull the first new grass for my horse as the fresh green blades were so good for helping him to shed his winter coat. Now I pull the grass for my cats. Outdoor cats can nibble on grass whenever the urge strikes them, but since mine are indoor […]

Service Dogs Never Stop Serving

Posted by mcm0704 on February 8, 2019 |

I’m going to be in Dallas today getting nerve ablations that will hopefully ease some of the pain on my face and head and get me off some of my meds. In addition to Ramsay Hunt Syndrome, I suffer from a condition known as CRS (can’t remember shit.) Many people on high doses of nerve-blockers […]

Who To Trust

Posted by mcm0704 on February 4, 2019 |

It is hard to believe, but after the deep freeze of last week, temperatures are rising to a balmy 47 degrees in Detroit and Chicago. Much of the Dakotas and Minnesota are still hovering near or just below zero, but according to my friend in South Dakota, that is a warm spell. Here in my […]

Friday’s Odds And Ends

Posted by mcm0704 on February 1, 2019 |

These pretty yellow flowers have survived the past few weeks of intermittent freezing temperatures here in East Texas, and I enjoy the bright splash of color against the gray of the tree. I also admire their resilience. After hearing how cold it is in some northern states, I will never complain about the cold here […]

Loving The Snow

Posted by mcm0704 on January 28, 2019 |

It’s been pretty cold around the country, even here in Texas, so let’s share a hot cup of cocoa to warm us up. Not the same one, of course. Since this is a virtual cup, it can replicate. Enjoy… The other day, a friend sent me a wonderful story about appreciating snow days – those […]

The Great Divide

Posted by mcm0704 on January 25, 2019 |

The little blue flowers in that picture were popping up in a field behind my house. I took the picture on a warm day last week. They must have liked the sunshine. I wish there was more sunshine in the halls of government these days. I, like so many others, am so tired of the […]

Dogs And A #FridayRead

Posted by mcm0704 on January 18, 2019 |

It’s taken my dog, Dusty, a long time to feel comfortable enough in the house to play, but he finally decided the other day that it was okay to chase this toy. Some of his reticence might be due to how the cat, Sammy, terrorizes him, but some of it is due to the fact […]

Government Shutdown

Posted by mcm0704 on January 14, 2019 |

The area around my house in the city is not particularly scenic. Many of the houses are very old and run down, and a number of them have lots of junk in the yards. Still, I manage to find some pretty things to photograph. There are a few of these bushes with the bright red […]

More Cat Facts

Posted by mcm0704 on January 7, 2019 |

Those little kitties were a gift from my daughter-in-law, Wei, and I thought they might like to hang out around the barn. Now some of the cat facts, again borrowed from LitterRobot. 1. Research suggests that a cat’s purr has the power to self-heal. One of the most precious cat facts we’ve learned: The purr […]

Facts About Cats and Immigrants

Posted by mcm0704 on January 4, 2019 |

Starting off today, and the weekend, with a few interesting facts about cats. I found these on the LitterRobot site. There are thirty things listed there, but I only stole, er, borrowed a few: 1. Cats meow for their humans, not for other cats. Domesticated cats have evolved alongside humans long enough to know that […]
