Rollie Update

I haven't had much to say about Rollie lately so I thought I would update. Rollie has grown since he came to live here. A lot. He is on a diet but I don't see that it is going all that great. We will find out at his next vet visit. At any rate, he continues to be the sweet kitty that he was as a kitten even though he doesn't sit on our laps as much. I used to really enjoy settling in to watch a good movie with a cup of tea and a warm kitty on my lap. Now, he doesn't join us quite so much. I think he has outgrown our laps and he has found much more interest in staring out the back door at any sort of wildlife that might come rambling through the yard -- he was mesmerized by a tiny toad night before last.

At any rate, I though I would share a couple of "now" (top) and "then" (bottom) photos so you can bask in the gloriousness of G. Rollie --
Friday Fill-ins

1. Birthdays are better than the alternative.

2. Autumn is my favorite season because of the cool, crisp temperatures and the beautiful fall foliage.

3. I feel my best when I have eaten well, exercised some and accomplished something (this means not siting in front of the tv all day!)

4. Soup is my favorite food.

5. First impressions are one thing you don't get a second chance to do.

6. The best piece of advice I ever received was to stay true to myself.

7. And as for the weekend, tonight I am looking forward to watching "The Other Boleyn Girl", tomorrow my plans include going to the other house and doing some work there, and Sunday I would like to go to church and enjoy my family at a belated Father's Day gathering in the evening.
Happy Anniversary to me!

Yesterday was my anniversary. Not my wedding anniversary -- that is on July 1. Rather, it was the anniversary of our first date! I remember it well. I wore a pink Bobbie Brooks skirt and we went to the Olmos Theater. We double dated with A's friend, Ronnie Holland and my friend, Penny Kuykendall who were dating. We saw a double feature -- "Dr. No" and "From Russia With Love". Little did we know then that 43 years later I would be sitting here blogging about it. What is even more amazing is that I actually remember that pink Bobbie Brooks skirt!
