It takes a lot of courage to release the familiar and seemingly secure, to embrace the new.
But there is no real security in what is no longer meaningful.
There is more security in the adventurous and exciting, for in movement there is life, and in change there is power.
Alan Cohen

Inside of a dog, it's too dark to read."

Bye Bye For Now

My desktop computer died. Someone was supposed to come fix it ... they didn´t ... this computer-laptop you might notice is having its own issues and I have no idea why .. now and then it seems to want to speak another language .. y mi Espanol es no bueno .. es muy mal .. mostly.

Anyway ....  my postings will probably be few and far between until I get things straightened out.

So from a very chilly raw, cloudy damp day in Florida ... Take care, see you later !!

Caution:Wet Cat

Merlin is horrified because he dashed out the door to the lanai then realized he was standing in water.
I dried him off and told him how brave he is.
It will take him a while to recover.

You know how people, when they stumble or trip , will look back as if to see what they tripped over even when it was nothing but a slight clumsiness?
My old cat Merlin just walked out the sliding glass doors to the lanai and he stumbled 
Then he looked back to see what tripped him.
I adore that cat.

Rain Rain

It’s pouring rain and I am surrounded by napping cats.
I went to the store and bought a lot of soup something sweet.
And a lot of cat related things...litter etc
The rain has continued since last night and shows no signs of stopping
I have a lot of good books and the television so I will be fine.
I am alone all the time so being stuck in with a rainy day is nothing.
I am glad I don’t have to walk the cats.
So I am fine and I will post whenever there is anything to talk about.
Until then , Take care and talk to you later

Merlin Needs A Drink

It is cold in Florida. I sleep like a baby, in that big bed that can definitely fit a small dog as well as the cats.
 I imagine the grumbling of Merlin if someone bothers him while he is sleeping, Minnete who just wants to be close to Mama and Honey who takes up a small human  sized bit of the bed ..
She walked across my stomach this morning. I was afraid my spleen would rupture.
Minette wanted to sleep up by the top of my head ..
Merlin just wants to sleep .. leave him alone, stop kissing him, let the old man sleep.
No one did anything today. A shower and getting dressed sucked up the tiny bit of energy there was ..
I bought an igloo for a cat... it is lined with fleece...shearling like and it fits a small cat perfectly. I got one for a small dog and that is just right for Honey.
Merlin is big, until you see him curl himself up into a cat ball in a small dog bed.
He is staring at me now. If I look at him, he will make a little cat mutter .. then look away. . he wants to go out onto the lanai, in the pitch dark and drink some water out of his dish out there .. never mind there is a water bowl in the kitchen, the bathroom and bathrooms upstairs.
I have to go now- he is staring at me .. I have to let him out to get a drink and to talk to him so the raccoons won't try to break in while Merlin is drinking.
