Besita was the first to greet me this morning.
She sniffed my coat.
Then she took possession.
Cats are such funny people.

Friday cat blogging

A couple of days ago, PuddyTat forgave me for abandoning her for a week and sought attention at the kitchen window. As far as I know there had been no cats on the cathouse roof for a couple of weeks as all were either in the garage or on the second level. I was able to wash all the blankets. PT liked that apparently and has been sleeping in her box. This morning, Little One decided there must be something interesting going on and joined PT. After eating, LO took over the box but PT wanted the box and rather violently in her way pushed Little One toward the window. No big deal however as there is a blanket there too. Love my cats!

Prayers, please

A year ago I attended a birthday party in Hickory, NC. Lutheran pastor, conductor and composer Paul D Weber had arranged it for himself. Yesterday I learned that Paul has suddenly been diagnosed with cancer – not sure what kind yet, but blood-borne (leukemia, lymphoma, or multiple myeloma). He has had two major spinal surgeries to remove a tumor and reconstruct his spine.

Paul's wife Florence Jowers is one of my most favorite friends and Paul is probably my favorite Lutheran pastor. They open their home to me every time I'm in the neighborhood. I carry them and their three kids close to my heart.

Several years ago Paul and I went to Golden Corral for supper as Florence was busy. He has had grey hair for years while I have few. I mentioned senior discount which the gal immediately applied. Paul was conflicted as he was not yet old enough to qualify. He looked at me but said nothing and paid the lower amount. I'm such a terrible influence.

Please pray for Paul, Florence, Amanda, Erin, Jeffrey and their farflung family as well as the medical people who are treating him.
