We have always had a cat. But kittens are the most fun of all. My one cat is 20 years old and way past her life expectancy but she is doing ok. It is probably because she gets such great care from me. I also have a younger cat that is a lot of fun. Here you see my sister's great grandsons with some new kittens. They live on an acreage and everything is new to them. They love the kittens and have some rabbits too.

Wow, what's going on around here? The temps have been in the 70's and 80's for months and now we've had 2 nights at 28 degrees and a couple more in the 30's. The daytime temps have been 50's and 60's and boy what a change that is. I guess it's God's way of saying cold weather is coming so if you have repairs to do better get at them. I have a couple friends that are coming over and help me with a couple repairs I need done. Being partially handycapped I can't get down on the floor and do things anymore or I won't get back up until someone comes over and helps me. Right now we have a little light rain off and on but it makes the old bones holler and creak. AH, old age isn't it great.

Well we are finally getting some rain at last. The grass is beginning to grow again before it goes into hibernation. I make a little money on the side by mowing for a friend. It really helps out with groceries. I like to eat just like everyone else. So hope we keep on getting some rain. It has been terrible dry and alot of the grass is dead.

Why do they call old age the golden years ? I think it's because when you get old and out of the workforce you lose your rights. The people with the gold make the rules and we have to live by them. So I guess that would be a reason to call those years golden but it's really only for the rich. Everyone I know that worked and paid taxes for 50 or 60 years usually have some illness that uses up any savings they may have been able to save. These people like myself wind up living from Social Security check from month to month. There isn't any leeway so you can't plan a trip or big dinner for your family because there's no extra money. The politicians keep spending money like water but why not. They're not the ones that have had to go without a cost of living increase in their paycheck for the last 3 years. The seniors are the ones who suffer from year to year until they die. I personally would like to see these government people lose their big checks and fabulous retirement packages. The best thing that could happen for this country is to vote out everyone that's in office now and start over. Maybe we could actually elect people who care about the country and the people in it. It isn't going to get any better until something that drastic happens, just a good old house cleaning.
