CRITICS

I’m working on a short story, Cliff’s Note, recently rejected but with a good comment and helpful suggestions.  I have a rewrite and decided to try the story on my roommates.

First I tried the story on Sammy (Samantha).  Here is her response, not good, but she wanted to get close to my work.

Next I looked to Millie for an opinion, hoping for a more positive response. After pondering their reaction, I decided I had more work to do.

A FRIEND GONE, SALLY

A companion, living most of the past months on my lap, Sally is gone.  I have mentioned her in this blog before. 

Originally my daughter Lynn’s cat, an SPCA rescue, but as education and work took Lynn to other locations, Sally stayed behind

At the age of nearly 16 her kidney failure overpowered her.  She left this world on March 8, 2016, barely able to stand.  I had to make the final decision.   She had bounced back numerous times in the past, but this time was different.  There was no bouncing back.

I never thought I would be become a ‘cat person’, but I did become a ‘Sally person’.  We shared many nights together on my recliner, and many mornings when her hunger wanted me awake.  I miss her.  She won my heart, and I will always remember her.

MY NEW 21ST CENTURY TOYS

JpegI am dragging myself kicking and screaming into the 21st century as far as technology is concerned.

As far as socially, I still remain comfortably in the early 20th century refusing to be tied to a cell phone.

Here is one of the first photos taken with my new tablet showing our dog Millie along with our terror cat Sammy (Samantha) enjoying the sun on the first full day of spring.  Next week, chance of snow.

What has this to do with writing?  Not a damn thing.
