(My new 3-legged grand cat; Isn't she the sweetest thing?)
I just knew when my daughter lost her (15) year old cat last week, that she needed to get another cat. She has been very sad since the loss of Stella. The other cat Buddy has been a bit depressed as well, looking around for his pal Stella. My daughter was, I am convinced,put on this earth to help those in need. Her past actions have proven that. So I knew when she got a new pet from the shelter, it would be one that needed a bit more than just a home.
Rae, the kitten was born with a deformed leg, so when she was spayed, they amputated it, feeling that since she was so young she could easily get use to life with just (3) functioning legs. So out of more than 50, perfectly normal and healthy cats and kittens to choose from -- Rae won out. And, to tell you the truth - I think it was a win-win for both of them.
This weekend there were a few fall festivals going on within (15 - 20) minutes of us. Why are they always on the same weekend? Both of the festivals had book sales, as well as craft booths, food booths and loads of fun and games for kids as well.
The weather was picture-perfect, low to mid 70's, an it was great fun to just walk around and browse. After getting rid of about (80) books last week and another (15) went bye bye this week, I was much more cautious with what I picked up. I only spent $3.50 for: Of Mice and Men; John Steinbeck, The Russian Debutant's Handbook; Gary Shteyngart, author of Super Sad True Love Story: A Novel (2010) and I also got John Grisham's Ford County: Stories (unabridged audio version). I also got (2) pairs of gorgeous handmade earrings. My husband got himself a homemade apple pie for $6.00 -- see how our priorities differ...LOL
I just started the MOST AMAZING debut novel, I gasp as I read each word of this marvelous book. I plan to read this one in short spurts, as I do not want this one to end. It might very well end up being my favorite book of 2010 (based on the first 50 pages). Does anyone know the book I am referring to?
It's The Bells, by Richard Harvell.
Enjoy your day everyone!
