I may chat about my books, what I'm writing or reading, or just general thoughts. You may read posts about my cats or just my crazy life in general. Comments are welcome, if anyone wants to interact with me. Maybe we can share war stories, whether it's writing related or just about life in general.

Miss Personality

Snuggles - Sunni's Photo's
I’m cat sitting again with this adorable little creature.  She is always so delighted to see me when I go over twice a day to check on her, pet her and chase her around a while.  She likes to hide around corners and jump out at me as I go by.  If I let out a yelp, she really goes crazy and starts bouncing off the walls and grabbing my ankles.

 When I’m outback watering the garden, she watches at the backdoor and paws at the glass.  I know she misses her ‘mom’ who is out hiking and camping in the Sierra Nevada’s in CA right now.  So I try to spend about 45 minutes or so with her each time I go over.

 She’s really a joy with so much personality, but I’m not getting much writing done with this and everything else I have to do.  That’s why this post is late.

Remembering Woodstock, the greatest music festival of our time

Poster Designed by Arnold Skolnick

This was a noteworthy time in our history.  It’s hard to believe it’s been 44 years.  For anyone interested, here are the bands that played for your review.  This schedule is from Wikipedia.  Even though the world was in turmoil with the Vietnam War, it still seems like a less complicated time than we live in today.

 I get nostalgic over this event.  It brings back many nice memories.  I still have bellbottoms and tie dye from that era that I still wear.  Things like that I will never throw away.

 I’m posting links for the opening and closing songs for anyone who wants to listen and reminisce this event.
