Picture of the day... Hello....
My friend Ellen Naugle posted this. I'm still laughing!!!
If Bernie Sanders wins, it will be the first time that a Jewish family moved into public housing that was left vacant by a black family.
And with the elections in mind.... the stupidity of our young voters! Sheeeesh!

Yesterday, in the day time (unusual, as he always showed up before in the dark) the feral cat, "BC" (Black Cat) returned! I had not seen him, nor had any of the food in the back of the golf card disappeared since the Saturday before the Super Bowl. He's been out and about. I thought for sure he was dead. So, when I saw him I got a can of cat food and took it out. He panicked and ran into the trees. I called him several times and left the food. He came back as soon as I came inside...
I had to take these pictures through the darkened glass door and the screen...so not too clear....
It will take a while for him to accept me and not be scared. I am so happy he's back and safe!

Yesterday was long and hard. Crying mostly. Trying to dig the grave for Harley. Thank goodness the ground was soft from all the rains we have had. I worked on the grave a little at a time and finally my back went south. I went down to my neighbors Cindy and Frank. Their son, Jason, was there and he came up and helped dig the rest for me. Here is the last photo I took of my boy on Friday...
I laid Harley to rest, but before that I unwrapped him and there was a tear on his eye. I wiped it off and kissed him one last time.
On Friday I had taken Harley to the vet's. I knew he was failing fast, feeble, hard time balancing on all four feet, had been throwing up a couple days in a row and the doc said his kidneys were starting to fail. I felt it was best to have him put to sleep so he wouldn't be in any pain or discomfort anymore. Hated to have to do it. He's been a buddy for so long. He was even a buddy to our other cat, Blazer. Blazer couldn't catch a bird or a mouse if his life depended on it. He telegraphed his every move. His fav thing to do was lay on his back on the sidewalk in Temple City and hope someone would come along and rub his tummy. So, Harley arrived on scene and decided to help Blazer out by occasionally catching a bird and giving it to him. He had a good heart. Harley quit hunting after we moved here, as I wanted him to be an indoor cat and not be eaten himself by coyotes or cougars. When I brought him home on Friday I let Maggie and Bruiser sniff him so they would understand. Bruiser did! He got up on my lap in my chair Friday night while I watched TV. This was Harley's spot. No matter who was in my chair (Dave when he babysat and Cliff not too long ago) Harley would get in their lap.

Hmmmm.... I was thinking.... slice it 1" thick, drizzle with a little olive oil, sprinkle on sea salt and pepper, and some bacon bits, and roast it in 400º for 30-40 minutes. Then sprinkle with cheese and bacon bits. Think I will try this tonight!
