    In your garden. Prefer lantana but star flowers and sea holly will do.

    Had homemade, outdoor oven baked pizza today. Wow, really good.

    I would have brought some to share here but... I ate it all.

    My best friend is one of three people in the world my CatCat truly loved and trusted, and I know she was just as fond of CatCat. My decision affected more than just me and I understand that. But tonight, she made a comment that bothered me a bit. She said she wanted CatCat back... I told her straight out that even if it were possible, I would not do that to CatCat. She was so tired, so ready to go. She is at peace and to pull someone or something, be it pet or person from that just seems selfish. Then again, maybe I read too much fiction, but things like that never end well.

    Yes, I miss my cat, but I loved her enough to let her go when it was her time. I am thankful for everyday I had with her and because of that I think things are a little easier for me. Po and Rue also help. And while Po is still a bit raw, he is shaping up to be a really nice cat. (Not everybody gets that lucky twice.) The kitty shaped hole at our house has been patched, but Po needs a chance to make his mark. Life can be unfair, occasionally cruel, but in this instance it was not and I think that is why a seemingly off handed comment bothered me on a fundamental level. Given my heart issues my family and friends know, I need them to be strong enough to do for me, what I did for CatCat. I need them to let go...until that time comes, I take life a day at a time.

    Just some thoughts

    Wow, 19 to 21 I was working off a beach in Cala Mesquida, Majorca, teaching sailing, water-skiing and skin diving and running entertainments and couriering evenings and if the sea was rough. Worked my butt off every waking hour and loved every minute of it. Winters I came home and worked in the swimming pool mostly.

    Only one duck or person, is that?

    ... an I shall write a poem about it..
    Well, the duck won't so it's up to you then. Unless ...

    I wandered lonely as a duck
    that paddles rivers lakes and streams
    when all at once I trod in muck
    which rapidly destroyed my dreams.

    Finally uploaded a monster of a manuscript to Kindle Direct Publishing. Still working on the cover and typesetting the paperback, which is the very quintessence of tedium, but no help for it. It must be done. (And I thought the writing was the hardest part!)

    New children's book illustrations are being finished up by the artist. Uploading that one is going to be hideously difficult.

    Why were they doing it behind a hedge? Is playing bowls in public not socially acceptable in Liverpool? Is this some sort of class thing? Are bowls players all assumed to vote Tory? Obviously that view can't apply to crown green bowls players though, but the crown might be higher than the hedge anyway, so of course the view would be different.

    You know Esc, you do inspire some profound thoughts.
