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.

I have always loved mornings and sunrises; there is something magic in the quietness of that early time of day. It is the time of day to sit and contemplate the possibilities of that particular day or the next.... It can be a time to reflect, a time to plan, or a time to dream.

The photo is of the sky that greeted me Friday (08/12) morning as I walked out the front door to get my paper.

Chat later

Super sunrise! The kitties probably do dream when they see this kind of sky! Love the little ones! Thanks for your sweet comments on my bridge photo! Come back anytime.
