Dewey, the Library Kitty

I've just finished reading this wonderful book about Dewey, a cat that lived in the Spencer, Iowa, Public Libary. He was found as a tiny kitten in the book drop on one of the coldest days of the year. How he didn't get smashed to death by piles of books is a miracle in itself to me. He was taken in...

Midi and I are back

It's hard to believe it's been so long. I was just turning 50 when I wrote last here. Now I'm 53. And I think I'm more content and happy than I've ever been in my life. Life must really begin at 50. My six cats and I have the best times, out back on the patio and in the garden when it's warm enough.... Sign in to see full entry.

On Turning 50...

In about seven hours I will turn 50. It's funny, my 50th birthday is on a Sunday, and it was on a Sunday 50 years ago that I was born at 5:00 in the morning. My boss invited me over tonight, she and the other librarian, a young 30-something black guy, had wine and cheese, then pizza and beer. We... Sign in to see full entry.

Approaching the Big Five-0

Yes, it's really going to happen, this September. I've felt young all my life but I guess I'd better start feeling my age. I'm showing it, that's for sure. If I go too long without a hair-dye job, the roots really show my gray. My boss, who has a way at giving great compliments, asked me today what... Sign in to see full entry.

Who Said Life Was Fair?

I beg your pardon, I never promised you a rose garden... remember that song? And even rose gardens have thorns, as I discovered anew when planting new rose bushes in my yard this fall/winter. Seems like no matter how sunny life seems at times, especially when we look back on the far distant past, we... Sign in to see full entry.

I've Been Archived!

Just found out my topic at Suite101 has been archived and is up for adoption! I had asked for some time off because of my divorce, but I guess I took too long. It's just as well. Suite101 quit paying the next month after I started writing there. I remember being very surprised that my application... Sign in to see full entry.

I believe in them. So many things have happened in the past year, so many amazing things, if I didn't believe before, no way could I not believe now. I don't think we have to be terribly good to believe, to receive, to have miracles come our way. I wasn't, am still not, just prayed, things happened.... Sign in to see full entry.

Death at Any Age

A year ago a colleague who was just older than me lost her life on the way home from a meeting. Such a waste, she was successful, had a husband and two teenage kids, so much to live for, but suddenly her life was gone. Each week I read my newspaper from back home online, and mainly I'm interested in... Sign in to see full entry.
