Annabelle's antics


Mom says the sunlight always is different
during the Fall.
I don't know what she is talking about.
But she likes the way the light plays off my face.
I'm carefully monitoring all the situations,
a kitty must remain alert!

Feral Friday


Just reminding everyone that Ginger is still
a cat in residence outdoors.
She along with 3 other abandoned cats
have taken up refuge in our yard.
One day Mom hopes she can talk Ginger into
moving inside.


I don't know how I feel about that.

C.2007

Just this week, another furfriend went to the Rainbow
Bridge. Jack was the beloved cat of Miss Connie.
She commented on Facebook, that you never take enough
pictures. I found that out after I had lost Abby.
I too echoed her thoughts.
Take more photos.
I wanted more.
I still do.
Once they leave us the photos are what we fall back onto.
It took me many weeks before I was able to go through
a lot of them.
But, I was determined each day of that first year to make
a graphic with a quote that signified how I felt about her.
I turned them to black and white to represent the 
starkness of my rawness. I tweeted them out everyday for a year.
I have continued each day since to tweet out what day 
of the Journey I am on.
Today it is 1,885 days since she left this world.
1885 days I've been without her in this physical world.
1885 days closer to when I can rejoice in reuniting with her.
You went ahead of me Abby and that was hard, but I'll be there
one day.
One day and I can't wait to hold you again.

Hurricane Update (FL)
Yesterday was a day that will never be forgotten if you are a
Florida resident. A historical strong CAT 4 hurricane ripped apart
our state and in a few hours left devastation in its wake. Michael was
the 4th strongest storm in US history, and making landfall in October
made it own significance. Mexico Beach was the epicenter of the
catastrophic damage that 155 MPH winds and storm surge can cause.
Panama City and Panama Beaches will take many years to completely
rebuild. Our Capitol, Tallahassee is 100% without power as are at least 500,000
others throughout many states. My heart breaks for those whose lives will
be forever changed. I know a lot could be written on the over development
of coastal communities, but houses are being built a great
deal stronger since Andrew hit our state and literally wiped out Homestead.
But, when you look at the images of the destruction, it's like a nuclear bomb
went off. No one can deny the beauty of living by the water, but it has it's
own hidden powerful destructiveness. Nothing in the weather record
books matches Micheal, so it will just be another of the Earth teaching us
another hard lesson. I know our own N FL brush with that lesson last year
with Irma was unbelievable, but our destruction was no where on the level
that the Panhandle faces. Once again, the powers beyond what we can
control or understand make us take note and give our respect to it's
incredible fury.

Wordless Wednesday or Not


Boo says I'm looking at your EVIL #Michael.
GO away...
but sadly you're not and you'll be coming ashore
sometime today.
Many lives will be impacted and altered.
Prayerfully, none are lost.
This is a bad a$$ storm, one of the more powerful
ones late in the Season.
Prayers for all who are in its path.
Unfortunately there is still possibly developments for 
another Gulf storm. My cat whiskers are watching this
carefully.

Annabelle's Antics


Mom says I won't come to my name, but if she calls any of 
the other cats, I am there first.
I like to keep her confused.

Peek a BOO Ping

***
OK it's time to get off this Hurricane Watch perch.
But....
there is something brewing in the Gulf and Mom
told me to keep my peepers open. She says it
looks like we're going to be in for something.
Well could you be a little more forthcoming MOM?
I mean ... c'mon!
She is freaking out my friends like she does each
time the wind blows during prime Hurricane season.
This time there may be more to it than just a freak out.
We will watch it very closely.
I got this Mom.
