A cat named Cheddar...

In this world that at times can be filled with anxiety and division sometimes it's hard to find the stories of simple acts of goodness and love that are hidden in the chaos.

We came upon one such story right in our own neighborhood and were so moved we wanted to share it...

Jade got her cat Cheddar from the Brooklyn New York public shelter 1 year ago.
She flew home with him and he became a part of the family.

Cheddar would sit in the front window and watch people walk by.
Jade would take Cheddar for walks around the neighborhood on a little leash and harness and says he loved meeting new people and their dogs.

On Friday, Cheddar accidentally got out.

That evening  a couple stood in the street as they tended to a cat that had been hit by a car.
They where trying to notify the owner and stayed with the injured cat petting and comforting it.

On Saturday there was a small makeshift memorial where Cheddar had been hit. One of the notes left at the memorial was handwritten and said, "I was on my way to work. Please forgive me."

Later, Jade would leave a comment in a post where this story was first reported where she said; "to the young man who had this unfortunate accident with Cheddar, It was not your fault and I do forgive you".

Cheddar didn't know the couple who comforted him while they searched for his owner.

He didn't  know the person who hit him.

He didn't know the people who read his story and sent words of comfort and sympathy to Jade.

But clearly all these people where touched briefly by a cat named Cheddar.


In loving memory of Cheddar...

It's about Russia...and has nothing to do with politics...







I know... we are supposed to be doing Wordless Wednesday.
Hey, let's be a little flexible shall we.
Life is full of disappointment's.

Sorry, I lost my cool.

Anyway, Russia, Russia, Russia.
It's all we hear about these days.
I get it...there's a lot to find out whether you think it's important or the proverbial which hunt.
We are hearing a lot about Russia.

So we decided to find something about Russia that everyone could agree on, and we think we did!

Although it involves Russia, it has absolutely nothing to do with politics or Donald Trump or the 2016 elections...honest.
Just take a look.

Oh, and by the way, that guy is 30! That's old for someone in his profession.
So, I know we haven't done it in a while but we are giving a big Fuzzy Hug and Kitty Kiss to
Sergei Voronov!


Have a fabulous Wednesday!

Is it time yet?





The shooter in LasVegas;.
He was white.
He was not a radical Islamic terrorist.
killed 58, wounded 546. at a concert

The shooter in Alexandria, Virginia;
He was white
He was not a radical Islamic terrorist
Severely wounded 6 one being a member of congress while playing base ball in a park.

The shooter in Sandy Hook; .
He was white.
He was not a radical Islamic terrorist
killed 26 in a school 20 of which were 6 year old children.

The shooter in Aurora, Colorado;
He was white
He was not a radical Islamic terrorist
killed 12 and wounded 70 in a movie theater


The shooter on Sunday in Texas;
He was white.
He was not a radical Islamic terrorist
killed 28 half of which were children in a church

Mr.Trumps wall and his travel ban would not have had a thing in the world to do with stopping the carnage in all of these incidents.

So, okay not radical Islamic terrorists...

"No, but they were all crazy people"!
Okay, why then was one of the only pieces of legislation passed by this administration, to make it easier for anyone who is mentally ill to own a gun?

How did that help? Well, it didn't!

There are those who will continue to argue the second amendment when it comes to any type of gun registration, sales through the Internet and gun show loop holes.
They will argue their second amendment rights when it comes to automatic weapons and bump stocks and 100 round magazines.
This is a very small percentage of the American public that are condemning the rest of the country to being hostage to the increasing threat of just going about their daily lives.

I hear people say ,"there are more good people with guns out there than there are bad ones".
What happens when all the bad guys with so many guns and rounds of ammunition shoot all the good people who insist what we need is hugs and prayers but no gun reform?

Who's left?

Congress is so afraid of this group that they will not even bring gun ownership issues up for discussion.

In the past as now, they say; now is not the time...

Is it time yet?




Happy Veteran's Day.
Have a wonderful weekend!

Blogging 4 peace...





Today we are Blogging4Peace.

We thought it would be nice to do something special on this day, so we thought and thought and came up with this...
The photo above is me on the very first day I came to live with the humans.
This is a never before seen photo of me but I must say "aren't I just adorable?"

And in the spirit of peace, we know it's a little early but we couldn't resist. We ask that you ponder the words to this great classic song from this great classic movie.



Have a wonderfully peaceful weekend!

Upside down and backwards...





When I was in photography school, one of the first things we learned was that when you were loading slides into a projector tray you had to put them upside down and backwards.
It was easy to remember so the slide show didn't come out all wonky.

That phrase came to me all these years later when I heard some old hits playing in the world of politics the other day.

For the past couple days I've been hearing how we have to start investigating  Hillary again and "lock her up!"

Don't look now but the e-mails are back!

No, not Ivanka and Jared's or Donald Trump Jr's, forget about them ( they want you to really forget about them )
focus on Hillary.

Let me put this in perspective for you...

Hillary Clinton used an unsecured server for her emails! Treason! Lock her up!

Ivanka, Jared and others used private email accounts and....nothing.

Four Navy Seals killed in Niger.
No explanations .
No word of this incident to the families or the public until the media reported it.
No word from the president...even now!
And one little investigation, very very quietly.

Remember Benghazi, Benghazi, Benghazi? 7 plus investigations by the GOP...hum-m-m-m.
To me this all seems upside down and backwards and that's a nice way of putting it.

But just as we're  taping our toes to the GOP classics, along comes the real story...

Last night the first indictment's were handed down from a grand jury in the Trump Russia investigation.

So, saddle up buckaroos we're in for diversionary tactics of epic proportions now.

Heaven help us all...


Have a Happy Halloween...
