Making New Friends

December 6, 2018

Good morning.  Tis sunny and cold here in New England.  What can I say?  I love the sunny part, but not the cold part.  The good part is that Spring is coming again in 104 more days.  In between now and then, we'll be busy with Christmas, the New Year and Valentine's Day.  Plus a two week vacation in sunny, warm Florida for Pogo and me.  We can do this!

Well, Pogo and I had plans to visit a kitty shelter this morning after dropping Jazzy off at the college.  However, the furnace has decided to act up, so I had to cancel our plans to stay home and wait for the burner guy to come out and take care of the furnace. 

Yesterday I responded to a request on Facebook for some old blankets and other supplies for a kitty shelter (Lilly's Kitty Shelter) that is just a few towns over from me.  While I was grocery shopping at WalMart, I picked up a big bag of kitty food, a large jar of kitty treats and some fleece blankets for the kitties to snuggle up in.  Today, I will dig out some of my older blankets and put them in the car with everything else. 

Tomorrow Pogo and I will take a ride out to meet the lady who runs the shelter.  We can hardly wait.  I spoke with the woman on the phone this morning, and it seems that the shelter had been ruined by the rain storms that we had earlier in the year, plus all the humidity and wetness made a lot of mold.  Everything had to be torn down and rebuilt.  It's not finished.  They are still in the process of rebuilding, and another shelter has been helping to take care of a lot of their cats. 

During our conversation, I learned that the woman and her hubby give to the same Indian schools that I donate to.  How about that for a coincidence?  I do believe I was meant to meet these folks.  Now I have a new charity to add to my list. The kitty shelter.  I love animals so this is awesome!

Today I have a few more of Mac's photos to share.  This first photo is a view of the Navy yard, taken from the window of Mac's apartment.  (in Yokosuka, Japan)

These next two photos were taken while visiting downtown.  I love all the colors and the trees.

And this last photo is the fountain outside the apartment building where Mac is staying.  It's titled "Fountain in Verny Park, Yokosuka, Japan."  Wowsie!  This is beautiful.  Mac, thanks for sharing all these beautiful photos. 

Daughter Deanne is coming by after work this afternoon to help me with some of my wrapping.  God Bless her, I really can use the help.  I don't know why I have such a problem with the wrapping.  The shopping and the making things was awesome fun. 

Oh boy, the mail carrier just came and brought me a small package.  It's the music CD that I ordered a few days ago.  It's called "My Wife, My Life" and is sung by Charlie Chase.  I just read the inside of the jacket and oh my, it's beautiful.  I'll try to take photos of it so that I can share it here tomorrow. 

Now I think I'll do some blog reading and then scrounge up some lunch for me and Pogo.  So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a fantabulous day.

Hugs, Edna B.
