 won·der: noun a feeling of surprise mingled with admiration, caused by something beautiful, unexpected, unfamiliar or inexplicable.

 Please allow me to explain the back story to this post

I retired from N. C. State University. I loved every minute of my employment in three different departments 
1. Broughton Hall:  Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering
2. Dabney Hall:  Chemistry Department
3. Cox Hall, Physics*
4 1/2 years before I retired my Physics office moved to Centennial Campus

For several months I have been purging, merging and donating things I no longer need.  One of  the things I found  was definitely a surprise.  A soap  container with my name and office #on it.  This made my mind's eye wonder why in the world did I take a soap container  to my office in Cox Hall*.


I wondered about it a bit; however,  the rest of the story is I have no idea. It was inexplicable. The only containers I ever put my name on were lunch containers in the kitchen refrigerator. Surely I never took food in a soap container.


The Golden Rods are blooming everywhere.  A sure sign of spring, 

As we approached our parked car, I saw the shadows and heard a little friend tweeting at me.

     Absolutely the only time I didn't make up the bed was when Diva Madison D. Princess Cat was sleeping on it.

    Thoroughly Poetic Thursday#107

      Today is Poetic Thursday hosted by our pals Teddy and Angel Sammy 


    Here is today's inspiration

    This probably doesn't qualify as a poem..

    Just things My Mind's Eye remembers.


    Back in the late 1950's early 1960's
    My parents and I went
    to the drive in theater most weekends.
    This picture gave my mind's eye many images.
    There was a playground in front of the big screen with all kinds of fun awaiting just like below.

    I have images and feelings that I'll share.

    Warm nights
    Cars in rows on our left and right
    Speakers attached to the car windows
    The entire night was a delight
    Before the movie we went to the
    Snack bar  there were so many choices 
    candy, soft drinks, popcorn, hot dogs
    and soft swirl Ice Cream.  
    Deciding was hard

    There were cartoons before the movies
    There were always two movie features.
    One for children was shown first and one for the adults was last.  Most children were asleep in the back seat. My mom always had a pillow and blanket
    And I always fell asleep.

    Happy Tuesday with Pup

     

    Thank you to our 

     Hostess Sandee at Comedy Plus 

    Happy Tuesday Dearest Auntie HiC

    GUESS WHAT

    Exciting News!!!!
    We took an RV road trip to Johnson City, TN & I bought a car!  We left the felines at home, teeheehee! 



    Actually, the peeps bought a used Kia Soul to tow behind the RV. We’ve always towed Dad’s little pickup, and there’s no room for me to ride along once we’re camping. 
    I can’t wait to get on the road again! 



    ❤️ Pup

    Dearest Pup
    Auntie is so happy she is EmojiEmojiEmojiand clapping.
    OMDs...and I'm humming "On the Road AGAIN"!!
    What fun family memories you 5 will make.
    I understand that Kat and Rocky would not want to 
    ride a gazillion hours one day in the car so it was best to leave them home.
    BUT the good news is I know you brought lots of smell mail home with you.
    I bet they had a sniff-afari when you got home.
    THANK YOU For such a fun post and handsome photo of you and your staff and the new (to you) car
    Lovingly 

    Your Devoted Auntie HiC

    Love those old Soul Hamster commercials:

    Mom, Dad, Kat, Rocky and I thank you so very, very much
    for all you kind and loving comments.
    Stay tuned from reports from the R O A D
    Love
    Pup

    Awww Monday with Kat and his Dad

     Thank you to our   

    Host Comedy Plus 

    AWWWWW

    Deareast Auntie HiC

    Ever since Dad's stroke, he falls asleep immediately after sitting down in his recliner.



    I’ve observed Pup demonstrating this same behavior while he sleeps. Mom says Rocky & I do it too! 

    We feel obligated to tell our friends that Mom has some 
    rather odd sleeping habits too
    Mom says we twitch & jerk while sleeping, but she makes interesting (embarrassing) sound effects! 😹😹😹

    I stay close to Dad while he’s napping. I think it’s a comfort to him❣️

    ❤️ Kat

    Dearest Kat

     OMCs.

    First Auntie has a question:  did you recently groom or did mom brush your furs looking all kinds of soft and lush.  And what a devoted and attentive ‘friend Dad has in you’…please thank him for pawticipating in the making of this videoπŸ‘πŸ»πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ‘πŸ»❤️…it is precious‼️‼️‼️‼️‼️πŸ’™πŸŒ»
    Oh I do think you boyz and Dad need to take a video of mom taking a catnap 
    Lovingly your Auntie HiC

    Sunny Selfies and Reflections


    We've had lots of rain lately.  Some of the low areas at
    Wooten Meadow Park are now reflecting pools.


    Speaking of Sun(rise).....
