Window Views #8 with Samantha, Mr. Tigger & Maverick Isn’t it funny how expressive all their eyes are!
Moving on from the hunt is Kristakz from Quilts and More – Home Made Creations shares the joys of Quilting with Cats.

SirWoody has graciously agreed to help me catch up on life information around here..
It’s been a hot summer in Florida, no real news there, except it has also been very, very dry…The roses are flourishing this summer, responding to care and feeding, what a blessing to look out and see the rainbow of colors in the front rose bed!
TheMasterOfTheUniverse’s mother had a bad car accident a couple of weeks ago, hit the accelerator instead of the breaks, and went through the wall of her doctor’s office.
Thankfully she was not seriously injured (she is however in a rehab center due to knee and foot injuries.) and no one else was in the office.
We thank God no one else was injured.

My health continues to be up and down. We have decided that I will not undergo any further surgery. My body is now reacting to antibiotics like they are a bad toxin…
I am completely at peace with this decision.
I continue to need morphine for pain control for the arachnoiditis
And spine damage and infection, and the doctors don’t believe that will change.
On a cheerier note, our grandson Smitch has been here for the summer.
As with all teenagers, it’s been a mixed blessing!
Johnny our son was laid off from sprint. So he’s dealing with some major depression over that.
LoliTheBigDog, and TheBengalBrats are in excellent health and
Full of get up and let’s play!

His parents didn’t want him to enlist, but it was his passion for helping people that led L/Cpl. Jeremy Tamburello to the military. “He was a very noble, very compassionate, very brave man” said L/Cpl. Tamburello’s father, Kevin. “He knew that he was going to have to go to Iraq and he knew that he might die, but he went anyway.”
L/Cpl. Tamburello was killed by an IED while conducting combat operations near Rutbah, Iraq.
These brave men and women sacrifice so much in their lives so that others may enjoy the freedoms we get to enjoy everyday. For that, I am proud to call them Hero.
We Should Not Only Mourn These Men And Women Who Died, We Should Also Thank God That Such People Lived
