“Happy birthday to you.  Happy birthday to you. You look like a blah-blah… And you smell like one, too!” I remember hearing and singing this ditty as a young child with my friends, then, laughing and chasing each other around in fun. The ironic thing is, I probably did often smell like some kind of […]

Many parents have heard the urgent pleadings of their children, who have become ecstatic, in the blissful hopes of having a pet of their very own, to love and cherish. No thoughts of emptying clumps from dirty litter boxes, nor of bathing a muddy pooch, nor even of mucking out a smelly stall, can mar […]

  A silent sunrise, too beautiful for my iPhone camera, speaking volumes.  Pristine and misty-blue ice giants, a churning of the vast sea, and a flock of penguins render me awestruck.    A random growth of “weeds” gracefully surrounds a cultivated azalea with beauty.    The desert, ablaze with color, forms a teeming ecosystem.   Every inch of […]

I’ve had trouble sleeping for as long as I can remember. From my very earliest recollections, I seem to see myself standing up in my crib, looking at the light coming through the partially-opened door of my bedroom, hearing cheerful, but unintelligible voices, and wishing I could be a part of whatever activity was occurring […]

Children can teach us how to love freely.  Animals are often quite accepting of those very different from themselves.   Baby humans AND baby animals have great value!    Dogs can teach us about unconditional love and forgiveness.    Even animals know that bonding with someone else makes life worth living. Both children AND animals know […]

                                             

“My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow Me: And I give unto them eternal life.” (John‬ ‭10‬:‭27-29‬ KJV) The Christian walk can be a difficult one.  We, naturally (that is to say, the “natural” man in us) want to do our own thing.  But, the new Spirit man in us […]

Tuesday, July 14, 2015. I found this frightening picture online, but immediately, a humorous caption sprang into my head!   Don’t blame me for finding the obvious outrageously funny. I’ve only slept three hours in two days! The reason: pure pain from intense itching. You see, I’ve been the victim of a vicious, three-pronged attack: mosquitos, […]

   (Photo courtesy of K-Love, Scott and Kelli)   I could not have known that, on July 29th of this year, I would be paying the price of love, and entering my own passage through grief. My youngest sister, Becky, died suddenly, after battling with mystifying illnesses—and mis-diagnosed symptoms—off and on, for years.    Her […]

I suffer from insomnia, which I hate. And I love cats. So, it wasn’t long before the two collided in my consciousness—or semi-consciousness, as the case may be! Hope you enjoy. (Captions are original. Pics are not.)  “Weepy, Sleepy Kitty”                 “She Doesn’t Do Mornings!”         […]

When I can’t sleep at night, one of the things I do is Google “funny animals.” Then, I stare very purposefully at each image, waiting for a caption to just pop into my sleepy head. Some end up being quite clever. Some, not so much! Lol But, at least you have a flimsy excuse for […]

 When I can’t sleep at night, I search through animal pics on the web, download them, then, let my imagination take over. My daughter tells me that my memes are lame. But, I don’t care. I have fun! I hope you enjoy them. (Captions are original. Photos are not.)           Innocent Kitty?    […]

                             

I just can’t resist the urge to add captions to cute animal pics, especially cats & kittens!                       My part Rag Doll cat, Buttons.               

Captions are original. (Photos are not.)    I found this cat-shaming pic when I Googled “funny cat pictures.”                              

Sunday, April 19, 2015. Spring has sprung, as they say, in all its fine glory. And, it’s a very welcome time of refreshing, renewal and change. One spectacularly nice sign of renewal has come in the form of an owl nest in our yard. As my husband climbed up a ladder to the top of […]
