September – 2020

Another month has moved by quickly. We’re still home more than we want with COVID-19 around. You can tell by the number of cat photos we have this month. Trying to capture Brawndo looking stately. Somehow a sink is the same as a cat bed. Not something I encourage, but I often get overridden. Coatrack’s … Continue reading “September – 2020”

I had Corvin check to see if he could get one of his friends to join us to keep her company (safe) … Continue reading “Simpson Paddle – 8/20/2020”
