“A wise old owl lived in an oak;
The more he saw the less he spoke;
The less he spoke the more he heard...
Why can't we all be like that bird?”

  1. Well, last Wordless our other cat, Tahoe, had her time in the spotlight...this week, Winston our Prime Minister wanted to have equal time. Here he is in all his glory...being persnickety and not allowing me to close the cupboard anytime soon.

  7. Hi Anni,

    I did volunteer to host Fun Monday, but no one has told me if I am the host or not. Do I just assume that I am? I'm not sure of the proper protocol.

    Thanks for your help.

  35. Anni,

    Your Winston is a darling and well named. The look on his face reminds me of Winston Churchill. LOL He looks put out and determined that he is staying where he is. Great shot with lots of expression.

    Blessings for a great day for you and Bud.

  37. Dear Anni ~~ Great photo, lovely cat. Thank you so much for your visit and comments. We all get too busy to read and comment all we would like to. Nice to keep in touch though. I am so glad you liked The Lawn Care story, as well as the jokes. I am sorry you and Bud had all that work to do, preparing for Ike, and then getting back to normal. I am so glad your son wasn't home, and hope his house survived OK. At least he is alive and well, and that is the most important thing. Glad you liked the picture of the soldier and his patch of grass. Take care, dear friend, Love, Merle.
