  • For the past few months we’ve been taking care of our youngest daughter’s two cats, Mohawk and Target, while our daughter spends some time with my sister in California.
    They’re both gray tabby cats, each about 10 years old.
    My husband calls Mohawk “Hawkeye” or “Hawk” and I’ve nicknamed Target “the weasel” because he’s long and he slinks through the house like I imagine a weasel would.
    Lately, we’ve noticed another cat hanging around, white with butterscotch coloring.

  • My family and I were outside playing a friendly game of football recently. I say “friendly” because it sounds nice. When, in all actuality, I am a momma who plays to win.
    Now, you probably don’t know this about me, nor would you think it if you saw my smaller frame, but I have got some skill. It is not my quick feet or my massive strength or even my knowledge of football (which is questionable) that leads me to be victorious. My skill is strategy.

  • The apple orchard has been picked clean, some are stowed in the refrigerator, some are applesauce, some frozen and the rest are dried and sitting patiently on the shelf until the dead of winter (we are not allowed to eat them until all fresh are eaten!)

  • • Log Cabin, Sept. 4 1914­—(From the story about the new post office on Walnut Street) “Inspector’s Scret Gallery, a long narrow gallery extending across shutters, enabling an inspector to see every employee in the office without himself being seen. A passage leads from the gallery to the basement. An inspector may therefore enter the secret passage either from the basement or from the second floor, without being seen by any office employee.”
    (Rather amazing, but the secret passage truly existed—2015 location of Whalen and Company.
