About

5 nov 2014

about me?  impossible.  I can’t talk about myself…hmmm…. what i can say is that I have been married, I have many sisters whom I love to pieces  and now after Olive’s passing (see her RIP post) I have three cats that really were Olive’s,  Bay, who  is 16 years old, and the two kits, Pearl and Ruby,  who are about 2 years old now, but still act like kittens.  I work.  It seems like I work all the time, possibly because I do little else.

    I used to think that is we ever had a dog, it would be a Jack Russell: I think they’re about as cute as a dog can be. But Chic told me “No we wouldn’t, darling: Jack Russells are cat killers!”. Someone whose opinion he had time for had told him that – probably some old country bloke. I wish he were still here for a million reasons; and one is to point silently at your post re Olive and them cats. [grin]

      Olive is an old soul…always has been. She loves her kitties…but what I love is how the kits (how I refer to the two 2 year old cats) is how sweet they are with Olive now that she is getting old, losing her sight and her hearing… They fret over her and walk with her outside. Just very loving relationship.

    Whenever I go to new places and take photographs, I always end up getting in trouble.

    Touchy, right?

    Thanks for stopping by. Seems we have something fairly in common — my dog is 14 & a Rat terrier. Mine is always being confused for yours, except the Jack Russell is a bit wilder than the Rat terrier.

      My little girl never had that wild streak. She has always been sort of reserved and serious…she never wants to play with toys, she checks her perimeters at work when we go out for a break, sniffing and marking out to the edges of her territory…then it is back inside for another nap under my desk!!!

      oh I love your blog….a library dog is an intriguing figure and books are one of our favorite things! thank you for visiting our site! Olive is a 14 year old JRT but she has way too much wire hair for a broken coated JRT. Consequently other normal characteristics of JRT’s are missing …she is very calm and has always been an old soul. She has come to work with me everyday since I got her when she was 6 mos old. She has her routine and sleeps under my desk. She is a dear. I love the books that you have in your blog. I mostly give books to every child in my life…I believe it is the best gift you can give!!! I will be checking back regularly.
