Well, I was told traffic goes up on your blog when you post pet pictures. (grin) Although, honestly, there's a reason I'm following up Buckley's Story with my cats. Jim and I did not have the best weekend. I've had a cold, and slept a lot, but was interrupted on Saturday by a phone call from the fire department, saying Jim had an accident with his motor scooter. Totalled. A woman pulled out right in front of him (she was cited), and he laid his bike down rather than going over the hood of her truck. Not a good weekend.
I haven't had time to finish a book. I could have shared the pictures of Jim's injuries with you, or I could share the cat pictures today. Since all of our adoptees, except Dickens, were strays or adopted from the Humane Society, it's a perfect follow-up to Ingrid King's Buckley's Story.
I've told the stories before. Our oldest, Stormy Roy Ann Weatherly, is thirteen. She showed up at our house in Florida on a rainy night, so she was named after the weather, and a baseball player - Roy "Stormy" Weatherly.
The next picture, top to bottom, is Annika Nicole (Nikki), Dickens, and Josh. Nikki is our library cat, dumped at the Main Library, with her litter of brothers and sisters when she was only five weeks old. She's our princess, and the sign in our living room says "Nikki's World." Dickens was born in our Florida house, behind the bookshelves, so he became Dickens. And, Josh was adopted two years ago from the Humane Society.
And, now we've added Jinx, another Humane Society kitten. He's two and a half months old. Meet Jinx, who is all set to go to the library with me. Welcome, Jinx!
(Back to book reviews tomorrow.)
