On my way to David's party I picked up Cheryl, who has been fostering Moonbeam, a baby kitten. She has been posting videos almost daily of this cutie and all of her friends are wondering how/why she will relinquish him. He is such a cutie....and totally spoiled by three adults. He will be in shock when he gets to a normal household that doesn't record his every move! In any case, I had to see him before he went to his adoptive family in Charleston.
Two days after David's party was my mother's 93rd birthday. As you can tell from earlier photos, she is in a pretty good place at the moment. They seem to have sufficiently adjusted her pain meds and she has a routine that helps her get through the day in reasonably good spirits. So, we both have a lot for which to be thankful.
In addition to these events, I've kept in touch with friends and Living Liberally. I also attended "Moms Demand Action" against gun violence. While I'm only a kitty-mom, it is an issue that
concerns me and I was interested in what they had to say. Those of you in liberal and reasonable states might be surprised that this was not highly publicized. They didn't' want a lot of gun nuts showing up!! What a sad and pathetic situation. The squeaky wheels in our society seem to be totally nuts.....and those who lead them have no scruples, only their own well-being in mind.
In that vein, my next task today is to email Speaker Boehner and tell him exactly what I think of his suing President Obama (we don't know why....he's still trying to manufacture the reasons!). I began the note last night and consider it my patriotic duty to do this on the fourth of July. I hope he appreciates the effort...as he will pay no attention to the content!
Well, in writing this entry, I know why the time has flown and why I get nothing of consequence done.....although there is lots of time left to do more than I do. It is just that my "To Do" list is so long I don't know where or how to start. There are also so many things I'd like to do for my own interest that it's difficult to do those things that "need" to be done. Oh, well, I guess it will all come out in the wash!!
To those on this side of the Pond!
