To both of my fans who inquired as to why there have been no new posts for a few days, see headline above. That, plus the prescribed medications, did me in. Will try to do better the rest of the week. Thanks for asking.
Best birthday wishes to Janis Gore. She's over at Gone South, in case you want to stop by and leave her a birthday card.

In WWII, there was an advisor to Churchill who organized a group of people who dropped what they were doing every day at a prescribed hour for one minute to collectively pray for the safety of England, its people and peace. There is now a group of people organizing the same thing here in America. If you would like to participate, every evening at 9:00 pm Eastern Time, stop whatever you are doing and spend one minute praying for the safety of the United States, its citizens, its men and women in the military, and for peace in the world. If you know anyone else who would like to participate, please pass this along. God Bless America.
++From my friend in Doha, Qatar, a quotation:
"The only time in his life that a French general puts up a fight is when he's asked for his resignation." - Winston Churchill
REBUT TO CHUCK (see Monday 2/10/03)
Cats have the simplest of taste - the best will suffice.
Dogs are like kids. Cats are like roommates.
Cats are living proof that eating and sleeping all day isn't all bad.
Cats teach us that not everything in nature has a function.
Traits we despise in people, we prize as virtues in cats.
Cats know all the sunny places.
An aquarium is just interactive television for cats.
A cat's favorite game is: "Hah! Made you look!"
A cat's worst enemy is a closed door.
Cats aren't clean, they're just covered with cat spit.
Cats aren't as dignified as people say they are. (Ever watched a cat clean its privates?)
Cats are good for dusting high places.
Cats have fur coats because they look silly in raincoats.
You don't own your cat. The cat owns you. And the cat owns the house. You just pay the mortgage.
Cats have their own lives; get on with yours.
Someone once said: "He who doesn't like cats doesn't like pets smarter than he."
