Would you like some whine with that?

OK So, I am feeling a tad peaked. Simon (the cat) woke me 4 times last night by bumping his head against mine and I know most of that was because he is a heat seeker and wanted to get under the quilt. I think he loves me, but he is a CAT after all and he doesn't do it when the weather is warm! By the way, if you haven't already seen the "Simon's cat" animations on Youtube, you should look for them here. But besides, I am peaked because when I look at the stats for our blog, while we indeed have hits from 52 countries--lovely, exotic, other-language-speaking, only-imagined, oh!-how-I'd-like-to-visit countries--in the past month, 34 of the hits have been for "Herbie the love bug" and 28 have been for "huge dog". 

You post because as Herb has said, it is like sending a note in a bottle out onto the ether, and then you find that people (4 ) only want to know about the mokume gane rings. You hope they will find the pearls of wisdom valuable, but the comment field stays blank except for mom who sends an email to tell us that we are brilliant writers. You hope to start a dialogue and find that, according to my friend David, it isn't even people who are finding us, but "bots".

It's enough to make me take to the bed...but then there's the cat....

End of whine.

Our friend Elizabeth who played at our wedding has been campaigning for a pet. She has posted notes around the house with information on the statistics on how many households have cats. So in an effort to stoke the fires...ONE HUGE CAT:

And then there's this HUGE CAT:

And last but not least THIS HUGE CAT:

OK so it's a cat fish....You never know what some bots will like!


  1. I can't be the only person who checks this blog EVERY DAY to see if there's a new post! Maybe your readership is just too shy to put their 2 cents in. I, on the other hand, can't shut up. As for Simon trying to keep warm at night--how about some nice kitty pajamas? I'm sure he'd love them...and you...

  2. Ahhhhh Kenosha blogger.... that is purrrrr catnip!
