This week my find is this handsome cat. Meet Chester. He lives at the home where we went for my daughter’s wedding shower. He was cooped up in a bedroom through the festivities. When almost everyone had left, he was let loose. He sauntered through the kitchen, on to the living room. He found the fresh flowers.
He chomped on them. Little green leaves fell from his mouth. Luckily, he was easily distracted by bits of wrapping paper. Then he sat down and posed for his portrait.
Here are my random 5 for this week (random, indeed):
1. Are you an animal lover? I’m immediately drawn to cats, dogs, bunnies, rats — whatever animal is in the room. I fell in love with Chester in 2 minutes. I hope I’m normal.
2. I’m reading The Fault In Our Stars by John Green. It’s about a teenager who has cancer. Treatment can buy her time but not hope for a cure. The story looks at questions about what life means, how we will be remembered, and the value of honest conversation. I’m halfway through and I must say it’s written in poetic lines.
“Do you know what Dom Perignon said after inventing champagne? He called out to his fellow monks, ‘Come quickly: I am tasting the stars.'”
3. We finished watching the entire series of Foyle’s War. If you love history and human nature, you will love this drama. It’s set during World War II. I marvel at the autos and buses from that era that still run. Every detail is vintage — typewriters, hats and sweaters, telephones. This is a fine, artistic, well written program. The next season is being filmed now and I can’t wait to see it.
4. I’ve been asked for input on music for the wedding processional and recessional. Any suggestions? I’m not fond of the traditional wedding march . . .
How about you? How is your week going? Do you love animals?
