My Cousin Greg Towner posted this photo on his facebook page. Thanks Greg! Chatting with an Australian friend this morning, I mentioned this memorial and she asked if I could post it on my blog. It strikes me as humorous that I am a go-between two Australians, here literally on the other side of the world. Greg has written and published some … Continue reading Memorial to Aborigines, photo by my Cousin Greg
…just kidding! I know you guys are out there doing your respective activities and chores. It’s ME that has been absent for a long time. So now I’m back. No, it wasn’t you…its me. Stuff happening just one after another, and although I thought about writing some of it in the blog, usually forgot about it until the next Big Thing … Continue reading Hey…where is everybody?

Time to update the outside cat shelter. Lots of straw, tarps, assorted crates and wood…and a big table… plus more to come. Barbara, for faithful followers’ information, is the wild Calico Cat that lives outside and was rarely seen…until the greenhouse where she hung out for years was torn down last spring, leaving poor Barbara rather confused and homeless. But now she has apparently … Continue reading My 2018 cat shelter (Part I)
(photos ©Sometimes,2018) The colors in these shots are overwhelmed by the bright sunlight coming in the windows…except for Pearl, who is completely black and requires different camera settings to see her face. The green paint is prettier than it appears, but could use a fresh coat of paint. (The very thought of painting scares me! and yes, I know we should … Continue reading Cat Decisions
The workers are here installing the new floor, which looks great. We will paint or stain the baseboards so they are nice when they go back up. The living room area is about half of the job, so it’s a relief to have it so far along. However, everybody knows what happens when major new infrastructure goes in…. right…. the walls look … Continue reading Flooring update half-way there!
