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."

Remember to Laugh

                                              I know who I can count on to make me laugh.

After receiving more bad news last night , I am just going to stay off the computer for a little while and get my thoughts together .. as well as not drive away anyone who reads my blog and has no interest in reading sad things.

We have roofers doing things .. on the roof .. imagine that !
And they are very skilled at making maximum amounts of noise.

I have books to read and perhaps a headset and some classical music will get me through the day.
With 3 little clowns of varying sizes and talents, the day should be fine.
Happy Weekend !!  Remember to laugh .. it is good for you.

This young beauty comes to my house for dinner each night.
I have no idea if she belongs to someone here or is a lost kitty or what .
But she will not starve. If she wants to come in to the lanai, she is welcome.
If I don't see her, I worry. 

A family member died .. an in-law. It is very sad and for me , very sudden  but she knew it was coming. Our family just keeps getting smaller and smaller ..
I want to grab them and yell at them to " stop it ! Stay ! We need you here !!

So I will continue to feed stray cats and wish I was back home in NY .
