In honor of International Cat Day

Stray Cat by Francis Witham

Oh, what unhappy twist of fate
Has brought you homeless to my gate?
The gate where once another stood
To beg for shelter, warmth, and food
For from that day I ceased to be
The master of my destiny.
While he, with purr and velvet paw
Became within my house the law.
He scratched the furniture and shed
And claimed the middle of my bed.
He ruled in arrogance and pride
And broke my heart the day he died.
So if you really think, oh Cat,
I'd willingly relive all that
Because you come forlorn and thin
Well...don't just stand there...Come on in!

(One of the cat cross stich projects Charles did. 14 count /1989 / 8x10 / Designed by Judy Nason © Graphique Needle Arts)

A special golf outing

Charles took part in the Colorado Golf Association's "Away Day" this morning at The Ranch Country Club in Westminster. His score wasn't all that special but a nice foursome to play with and a new course to play on made for an enjoyable outing.

A gift from the far north

Belinda was presented with a decorative art plate by a member of our church, Myrle Myers, who had just returned from a fishing trip to Alaska. The "hummingbird plate" has found a home on our mantel.
