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.

Then & Now (February 19, 2010)


My cousin Robert and his 'Vegas Virgin" wife, Deb came to town to contribute to the local economy :)

They are two of the most delightful people and my time with them was far too short! We absolutely enjoyed the 7o degree weather and the opportunity to catch up on each others' lives.

When I had been going through photos for my photo banner (see ealier post) I found a photo of a family vacation to Yellowstone Park. Robert and I are the 'twins' with the Yellowstone Park tee shirts and suspenders. I shared that photo with Deb and Robert during one of our lunches and Deb took the other photo. (you can click on the 'yellowstone' photo to enlarge it)
Chat later

Julene ~ I see Brittany in that little girl with the suspenders. When I enlarged the photo it became more evident. You look about eight? I think I met Brittany when she was 9 or 10. You were a very cute little girl. Amy
