Many of you know I fondly call my husband my Train Brain.

He loves trains of all sizes.  Recently he said he needed to pick up a new train magazine at Nick's Trains.  I needed a wooden dowel for a quilting project.  My Train Brain told me Nick's Trains has all sizes.  We took a ten minute road trip to the Choo Choo store.  I was double delighted to see Nick's and the welcoming RED Door.

If you look closely at the black arrow in the picture below, you might see a furry friend having his breakfast at his permanent feeding station under the awning in a bed of pine bark.

Introducing Racoon the Choo Choo Cat.  

About three years this tabby arrived at Nick's pretty much feral BUT hungry.  They put out food and water under the awning.
He kept coming every morning for all the TLC from Nick and staff. Nick was finally able to trap him.  He was neuter and fully vaccinated. I don't know why/who named him Racoon it is rather endearing.  He comes and goes out of the shop and can be found lounging all around the shop.

My most recent quilting project is a wall hanging with Cat Head Appliques.

This one is completed except for the dowel and ribbon for hanging it.

My Train Brian was right Nick has a gazillion dowels of all sizes.

Thoroughly Poetic Thursday #112

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


I am old enough to remember when TVs became the center of homes. 

My thoughts today come from all the letters of


Everyone was in awe
Life as we knew it changed
Entertainment at the turn of a knob
Incredible invention
So much has changed since their invention
I am especially happy about the size of the screen!!
On Demand is a favorite of mine... I never miss a program
Never did I guessed how many channels would be available

Wordless Wednesday Northern Lights in NC

Thanks to our 

Hostess Sandee at Comedy Plus

I thank Kit, mom of my Furry Nephews for forwarding this information to me.

 The aurora borealis or Northern Lights captured last night March 23, early morning March 24, 2023.  Blue Ridge Parkway outside of Asheville, North Carolina.  I had no idea Aurora Borealis were ever visible this far South.

According to our local weather geek, it was caused by a an unpredicted geomagnetic storm . Aurora was seen all over N. America and  as far south as North Carolina and Virginia Mountains.!!!

HAPPPY TUESDAY Trip Prep with my furry Nephews


Thank you to our 

 Hostess Sandee at Comedy Plus

Dearest Auntie HiC wish you were here.

Kat and I got a mani-pedi last week, AT THE VET, in preparation for our trip.  Of course that meant a mini road trip.  I was cool as a cucumber on the ride. 

Kat  can be heard not seen, here is the audio from the car!

Lovingly your Ginger nephew and his tabby brudder.

Rocky and Kat


Dearest Auntie HiC my 4th Gotcha day was Friday, March 24th
Guess what I got for my Gotcha Day? A BATH! 
Mom bathes me w/ oatmeal, puppy shampoo because of my allergies.   She says I feel so silky! ❤️ 

Dearest Nephews it is wonderful idea to let you favorite Vet Tech give you a good mani - pedi. That way you'll be set for the duration of your trip.  Pup Auntie HiC has skin allergies too.  I use Dove soap for sensitive skin for my shower and Aveeno Lotion afterwards.  It has oatmeal in it too.

Love Auntie HiC
