Funny Feline memories

I often see cartoons that remind me of the many wonderful and funny memories of Madi

She was good at hiding in plain sight

Yes we both often carried on conversations with Madi and she listened.
One of us often sang to her songs that were made up.

Sweet Memories
by Cecilia

Way back in another century when I was wee,
the art of 'nanner split making was taught to me.
Daddy told me there are things you will need.
First and foremost a boat dish  is the key.
The shape kept the ingredients in place.
We assembled the necessities along the counter.
My job was peeling the nanners.
Daddy cut them perfectly down the center,
no slices he told me.
He was right their shape, fit in the boat dish with ease.
 Nanners were covered with three scoops of Neapolitan.
 Gooey pecans, chocolate syrup flowed freely.
Whip cream was the fun part.
It came out whistling making me clap with glee
Daddy like candied cherries to decorate the top.
None for me because....well that is another story not to  
be told here.
As Daddy handed me a long neck spoon,
my senses were awakened.
 My mouth was watering, my eyes were shining and my head was swooning.
Mama looked on in dismay at the mess we made.
Secretly she smiled, she knew memories were being

Secret Lives of Letters Q and R

I just received my February Reader's Digest... it has another very interesting article
"Strange but impossibly True" there are 25 delightful truths.

#15 The longest word in the English language has 189,819 letters.  It is the technical name of a protein, which lists its entire amino acid sequence and would take about 3 1/2 hours to say it out loud.  Nope the article does not tell the name of the protein.


November Reader's Digest and I happened upon this article, 
"The Secret Lives of Letters", by Brooke Nelson.  Mr. Nelson says letters may be small characters, but there are amazing stories behind all 26 alphabet all-stars.

 For those new to the blog...our first family pet was a mighty mini Dachshund...
I'm letting him tell you about the letter R.

Here is a short poem (pun intended) about Toto.
In (19) '74 our world was rocked when in
the door Toto marched.
His statue was tiny, his attitude was mighty.
His first night was rough, he missed the other pups.
His tiny body could nearly fit in a cup.
In no time at all we became a family, owned by this mighty mini pup.
 His back was long, his legs were short. He was vertically
challenged, did he care? We think NOT. This dude was born with 'tude.
Nothing or no one was too big to rule.
His bark made such a rumble when to the door he ran
visitors were sure it was a Dane.
No one believed their eyes when a Mini Dachshund before 
their eyes appeared.
