Remember when you were a kid and it seemed like summer lasted for years? Now it seems like it lasts for a minute and a half. Why is that?  Do we have too much to do now or do we not stop long enough to savor the summer?  I don’t know – but I would […]

My beautiful and unique cat, Mr. Six, went to kitty heaven this week. He had been sick and we had been treating him but after about a month, the disease got the best of him and we had to have him put to sleep. It was heart-wrenching – as it always is when you have […]
