Dogs and Cats

No one appreciates the very special genius of your conversation as the dog does.

– Christopher Morley


It’s late Sunday afternoon. The sky has been overcast all day, and the air smells like rain, even though it’s not in the forecast. Like at least 40% of my fellow Americans, I am feeling stressed out by what’s happening in our nation’s capital.

I just can’t do any more serious thinking, so please join me in taking a break:




I’m going to go play with my dog now.



Here’s hoping we all have a very uneventful Monday — For the sake of your mental health, please avoid Twitter at all costs.

After Hollywood failed to appreciate her genius for acting and directing, she began a second career managing non-profits, from which she has retired. Nona has now resumed writing whatever comes into her head, instead of reports and pleas for funding. She lives in a small house overrun by books with her wonderful husband.

    Well, I have a,rescue kitten/cat. When I am on the couch she snuggles as close as she can. When I get up, she follows wherever I go. It’s funny, she is not one to be held.

      Some cats don’t like to be held – it makes them feel trapped – but still, you are obviously this one ‘s chosen human!

    Dogs live for attention, cats remind you that you could be using both hands.

  3. I am owned by two cats.
