I won’t go into details, but the last thing I wanted to think about today was snacking. Up all night, sick most of the day, finally slept in the afternoon. Feeling better but still not up to snacking so I had a look at past blogs and came up with this:
If you hope to make conjunction with me at your little function, serve potato chips with dip and also, I’d appreciate a sip of Diet Coke or Seven Up in a waxy paper cup.
No one likes a fete that lacks sweet or salty little snacks. Pizza, nachos and popcorn, too, are appropriate things to chew. Leave caviar to lords and kings. I’d much rather have onion rings.
Refreshments are an absolute must. Without them, parties are a bust. And any date becomes an upper when it includes a little supper. So if you wish to win my heart, my stomach is the place to start.
My sister sent me this photo of the beautiful paloverde tree that stands near their property in Arizona. My mother lived for 30 years in Arizona after I left home and she always commented when the paloverde were in bloom.
I suppose it is the light that is the magnet drawing insects to my screen when I write late at night, but sometimes it seems like an electromagnetic force. These insects do not flutter, but glue themselves to the screen. That force was active on the night described in this poem.
After two weeks, the kittens, at first confined to the guest bathroom, then to the bathroom or a special large walled-off area we created outside, then to about all of the house except for my bedroom, have definitely made themselves at home.

Kukla has decided to desert her post to investigate the nearby fracas.
Fran and Ollie have already devised their game, but looks like Roo is considering joining in.
Then it’s tag team as Roo takes over ,
then abandons the game for a little nest-shredding activity as that very docile frog looks on.
Kukla decides to investigate as well
and finds an even better spot than her sister did.
So Fran switches to a spot on the scanner. Roomier and in the sun to boot.
Busy at my computer, I felt something soft on my foot and looked down to see what seemed to be an impossible feat of balance.
This is a better view of Roo about 3/4 off the computer case she was sharing with Ollie. She maintained this position for an incredible length of time before eventually falling off. I kept my foot there to catch her, just in case. Now, click on the X, upper right, to return to the main page and view the Youtube video that shows what tired all these kids out.
