Of course it is. I was just a little nearsighted and chose the most obvious path.

In fact one's influence is spread through many people they make a lasting impression on. Neighbors, co-workers, other family members, etc.

Don't mind me, Andy. I'm just a little grumpy from not feeling well, but this is the wrong place for that Here's to grandsons who love their Grampy's cake!

Not a problem. You made a valid point. I was thinking locally rather than globally.

Yes, it's why I am a nurse...a childless nurse with lots of children.

I mentioned previously that I bought a cat tree and a hammock for Shreddy. This was close to two months ago and he wasn't showing any interest. I put a little bit of catnip on the hammock. It worked. This made me smile:



Now that he has tried it out, he spends a lot of time curled up in it. He was just being neophobic. I will try some catnip on the cat tree soon.

I am sleeping in the living room in my special recliner/lift chair (from my Dad), because it is more comfortable in the recline position for my pain, and I don't keep TB up with my coughing (bronchitis).

My smile comes from the fact that when I woke up I had Monkey (the kitten) asleep on my lap and Violet in her living room bed which was pushed closer to me.

TB got the whole bed to himself and got a great sleep for his last day of his work week!

Taxy, Shreddy is a real smile maker! Love the bed!
