Happy Cat Day! And Happy Halloween! Twofer!

I understand that it's both National Cat Day, and the weekend of Halloween.  So I decided to celebrate both holidays with pictures of our Halloween Black Cat, Kikyo.  She is around 12 years old now, which makes her a Senior cat (to go with her Senior Staff, myself and Hubby).  Here are some pictures of …

The week’s best memes, courtesy of my friend Joe at PoliticallyIncorrectHumor.com

These are just too good to pass up.  Enjoy. Just today, Kaiser Permanante suspended, without pay, over 2,500 of their employees, because they did not submit to the invasive medical procedure of Covid vaccination. My sentiments, exactly. And, finally, one from Joe himself.  Thank you!

Circles and Wheels: This week’s Photo Challenge from Cee Neuner.

I just had to do this one, for my friend Cee, who doesn't live too far from me.  Circles make the world go round (see what I did there?), and trace the roughly-circular orbits of all the planets and their satellites.  Did you know that the ancient Egyptians did not use the wheel?  They found …

At The Fair, a bit of rebellion?

The Washington State Fair, or "The Puyallup Fair", as it is widely known, starts this Friday, September 3, and runs to the end of September.  I just purchased our admission tickets online this afternoon, and they are good for any day.  We are going on Saturday. Hours after I bought our tickets, I learned from …

Discovering a new park, not far from home.

Periodically, Hubby and I drive from our home in Everett, Washington to the town of Leavenworth, along US Highway 2.  For years, I have noticed the roadside sign, pointing to the exit to Flowing Lake County Park.  I have always wondered what was there at the park, but we were normally in a bit of …
