Lifes full of challenges.

Walkin's easy when the road is flat,
its them danged ol' hills'll get you every time.

No words can describe . . . . take a look-you'll see.

Wasting away again in Margaritaville . . .
A few of our vacation pics of Sanibel & Captiva, Florida.

Dream of being on an island, soft white sand, swaying coconut palms, lush tropical foliage & beautiful blue water. Imagine pelicans & herons fishing for their dinner while you collect "treasures from the sea" pastel colored shells amidst sandpipers scurrying along the surf's edge.

Peace at last.

Find a kind of serenity, a new maturity . . . you wont feel better or stronger than anyone else, but it will seem no longer important whether everyone loves you or not - more important is for you to love them. Feeling that way turns your whole life around;
living becomes the act of giving.

Nature's beauty.

Each flower is a soul
blossoming out to nature.

I miss you Patches.

Patches-You will forever be in my memories & my heart.

If it should be I grow frail and weak
And pain prevents my peaceful sleep.
Then you must do what must be done
When this last battle can't be won.

You will be sad, I understand.
Selfishness might stay your hand.
But on this day, more than the rest,
Your love and friendship take the test.

We've had so many happy years
That what's to come can hold no fears
You'd not want me to suffer.
So, When the time comes, please let me go.

Take me where my needs they'll tend.
Only -- stay with me until the end.
Hold me firm and speak to me.
Until my eyes no longer see.

I know, in time, you too, will see
It is a kindness that you do for me.
Although my tail it's last has waved,
From pain and suffering I've been saved.

Do not grieve it should be you.
Who must decide this thing to do.
We've been so close, we two, these years...
Don't let your heart hold any tears.

Get that peaceful, easy feeling

When the tides of life turn against you and the current upsets your boat, don’t waste time on what might have been . . . . . . . just lie on your back and float.

Only a cat . . .

Cats are autocrats of naked self-interest.
They are both amoral and immoral, consciously breaking rules. Their sly, piercing stare at such times is no human projection: the cat may be the only animal who savors the perverse or reflects upon it.
