It was late afternoon, when I remembered the date. 17th February, 1962. Our wedding Anniversary is today. I need to find a photo, but the only one I had on file was my Mum on that day. her outfit was cornflower blue, and cream, a jacket and skirt, one of the very few bought ones, We both made all our own clothes back then.
So the day is almost over, and we have a new kid here, Pale,pale cream and slight ginger, the friendliest stray ever!!! He has been wandering back and forth for a while, we think, but last Sunday morning came in the front door at 6 a.m. ,made friends with everyone, and has been a full time lodger since. He is very defensive around the food bowl, which makes us think he has been abandoned, and living on the streets!!! I would like you to meet Basil Brush.!!!
The Two B’s,Boris and Basil!!! Boris has only made friends with one other stray, so we wonder is this his half-brother?
On the sewing machine, a few finishes. Blue Ted, is done, another Red Ted waiting to have the applique stitching done.
I joined another group, YES, crazy I know with all else going on, but I could not resist.Here is January kitty, named “ Pinky Purple”!!!
And I said Goodbye to Foxy#2, as she flew northwards. Foxy #1 is living here, waiting for the other two mates ( cut out but not sewn up yet) to join him.
Here they are, sitting in their own chairs, so friendly to each other.
I am thinking of all the students, parents and families whose lives have been altered forever after the shooting at the High School in Parkland, Florida.How would any parent,friend, brother or sister or grandparent cope with that, a massive loss that no-one else could ever understand. For any of us with a teenager, younger child , grandson or grand-daughter ,niece or nephew, or teacher at any school, we can be so thankful for each day that they arrive home safely.
