I've decided I'm getting a "catio" built for my cats. Essentially it is a chicken coop for cats. Okay, let's be nice... a safety enclosure. My boyfriend, Kats, also known as "the Monk" was going to build it but he had to have...

A very interesting thing happened today. I got an email from "HomeAgain" which is where Timmy's microchip is registered.  It just so happens that my membership with them has just expired. Thank heavens they reminded me. I had forgotten I can enlist them to ...

Placing an Ad for Lost Cat
I just drove over to the local newspaper office and placed a classified ad for $25.  It will run for a month. Bonus? It will be accompanied by handsome Timmy's photo!

Looking for Timmy
This is my darling TImmy da Timid (also known as da Scallywag) At this date he has been missing for about 6 days. I hope he will find his way home.  The latch on the back door out of the garage was not securely closed and he must have nudged the door open. ...

Lost Cat is the Mailman's Friend
Kats told me that he spoke to the mailman today and told him my cat was missing.  "Timmy?" the mailman said. He's going to keep his eyes open.  Funny. He knows Timmy's name and Timmy gets no mail addressed to him.  But, I betcha anything he knows Timmy quit...

Story
Introduction
A native of Western NY, the Niagara Frontier, I moved to Southern California after marriage to be with my husband near Vandenburg Air Force Base, where I had two daughters, worked in an Antique store and briefly attended college. With the military there are many opportunities to "Ship Out" so our lives were constantly changing and bringing us into new environments. Eventually I went back home to live near family and shortly thereafter was diagnosed with the bone cancer called chondrosarcoma. After seven recurrences over a number of years I finally made my way back to California where I met and married the father of my son. I went back to college full time focusing on medical studies with many minors. I was so happy to learn that I took as many classes as possible. Over the years I have been able to work part time in a variety of fields. Due to disabilities I was not able to maintain a career. But I love the variety that life has given me. I'm a bumble bee imbibing the nectar of life from all the flowers I can reach.

Though when first diagnosed with the cancer, I was told I had little chance to survive, I have managed to stay around long enough to have children, grand children, and great grand children. If I wait a few more years, perhaps there will be great great great grand children. How cool is that?

So, here's to you cancer.... Nah.. nah nah...nah Nah Nah!

Just the same, I wouldn't be the person I am today without the lessons I have learned along the way. So, thank you, cancer, for making me think.. and feel... and love... and grasp life (and death) with the fullest extent of my being. You gave me permission to discover who I am, to like who I have become and to accept things with a willingness I would not have had before.
