We make no particular claims to have the completeness of a Roman Catholic expression of Christianity. It contains opinion, interpretation, and personal musings. That’s it.

I can’t recall if I’ve posted an image of him in the several weeks since his relocation to our home. Here is Tanner, the little sir:

This little one has been diagnosed with a thyroid condition. He’s lost some weight over the past few months. Our vet was encouraging, though. He’s had no side effects, and in fact, seems to be tolerating food a good bit … Continue reading
“I can help.”
My little buddy always comes to hang out with me when the puzzle gets rolled out. It’s not the fabric so much, and probably not the pieces.
The Cat on Mars
I don’t think the new Webb Telescope has Mars in its sights. Gambit does. however. He’s happy the project is completed, I think. He’s been carefully monitoring progress all along: Even from the first pieces, like this center of a … Continue reading

Birds chirping and chowing on seeds. Gambit watching. And perhaps not so surprising for April in Minnesota …

Gambit’s Advent Pageant
This past Tuesday’s first reading included verse 7c from Isaiah 11: … the lion shall eat hay like the ox. Or was it, “The cat shall eat hay like the guinea pig”?
Pets At Rest
The cats like the young miss’s bedroom in the afternoon. It’s the brightest room in the home–the one side of the building without trees. Me, I like trees. But Gambit and Ginny like otherwise …
