Alex adopted me a number of years ago. He actually belonged to the neighbor on the east side of me, yet spent hours hanging
out with his kitty friends that lived with my neighbors to the west. He traveled through my yard going back and forth between
home and friends.

At that time I had been laid off at work and was spending more time in my home office and patio area. Alex began spending more and more time on one of my Adirondack chairs, during which we had great conversations. He is very vocal and expressive. He also started to follow me into the house. He was unbelievably well mannered. I set out a water bowl for him. I was also rather allergic to him.

An allergy prescription and a year later, I set out a food bowl. I still cannot keep Alex in the house overnight (swollen yucky eyes and congestion issues). Yet he knows that he is welcome to join his kitty friends next door in a comfy kitty igloo in the kitties’ house. It’s a perfect arrangement.

The Wedding Book (January 29, 2010)

I am so thrilled that Apple has the most amazing program that allows the user to create and print a book. In my case - a Wedding Book - for my daughter and new son-in-law. I don't own an Apple computer but my dear friend and neighbor does. I assembled the photos on a disk and wrote the very minimal dialog, then on Sally's computer and with her help - magic happened!

The photos simply do not come close to doing justice to the actual book; yet I still had to share this bit of joy. The first photo is the cover, followed by full page photo and the third photo is the last page of the book.

Love it. Love it. Love it!

Thank you Apple and Miss Sally!!

Chat later

I read every word of your blog. You are a good writer. I like your simple phrasing. It's powerful ~ especially when you're talking about your son.
As for Alex ~ I don't know him but I do know his friends who live next door. I hope to meet Alex during one of my next visits.
The wedding photos are beautiful. You are lucky to have Sally living right next door. Wish she lived next door to me!
Keep writing,
