This blog is like my kitchen table. You are all invited to pull up a chair, grab a cuppa, and stay a while. If you can, today, share your heart with someone. I would love to hear what is on your mind and in your heart. Life is short, live it well.

Good, thoughtful list. Just curious, though: What are the necessary bad odors?

Hey Lawana,
I have decided that I like lists...
especially when I "write" them...
cause thats the way I can actually write...since I think in random thoughts.
Love,love,love your blog!
Thanks for writing (since you know how vs. me that pretends to write & shows mostly pictures with captions)

Dear L. I think your kitties are lovely...kinda like me, too fluffy but really sweet! Maybe you could put them on an asparagus diet. If it works, let me know and I will try it for myself.
Love ya!

My special kitties lower my blood pressure naturally. Unless one has a bad hairball episode...
