A helpful Kitty — NOT!

I never know when Car-E decides he is ready to play. This short video is my cat trying to play with a mouse, my computer mouse.

Since I’m afraid of him chewing on cords, I connected with a cordless keyboard and a cordless mouse. Now all I have to do is watch that he doesn’t go for my charging cord.

I hope you enjoy Car-E’s silliness. He makes my life interesting.

Car-E is interested in the popper

I got my West Bend Stir Crazy electric popcorn popper out and attracted my cat’s attention. (Originally purchased a few years ago at Fleet Farm, Appleton, WI.)

I think Car-E would have liked it better if the top of the popper was off. If that happened he would have loved chasing the popped kernels.

I do love this popper but I don’t eat popcorn too much. Most of this batch went as a treat to my four hens.

Susan reads as Car-E plays

If nothing else you may want to watch this video to see Car-E trying to steal the show.

In 1986, my first novel was published by Doubleday. Its title is NEVER BRING HER ROSES. This is what I wrote about during that exciting time.

You can still get my novel on Kindle:

Do not accidentally click on the $902.81 one offered on Amazon! That’s some crazy person out there trying to make a buck.

I actually have a few hardcover books left that I sell for $10. In case you’re interested email me at or pick one up at Sissy’s in Seymour.

I think Car-E is the star of the show.

Cat fun

I entertained Car-E my cat and myself with a strip of material.

This was also a good way to tire him out.

In the end, Car-E grabbed the material and took off across the house, tossing it in the air and making his own fun.

This furry friend made my day.

He’s just so funny and I appreciate his company.

Some fun with a blood orange and a crazy cat

I’m do these posts to keep my life interesting and fun. Today I have both.

Car-E joined me at the beginning and that’s the fun part. The second half should be the interesting part.

I hope you enjoyed my efforts.

Try something new today. A blood orange might change your life … or not, but it can’t hurt.
