hence the gallery of cat photos.
Sammy (above) is our newest cat. Like many of the others, he was dumped out here in the country. He was obviously a housecat; he tries often to come inside with us. He's a very friendly and sweet boy.
We have no mice, no rats, no skinks, and any gophers that move in are temporary residents.

Today would have been my mother's birthday.
How I miss the older members of my family.
Now *I* am the oldest. That's sobering.
