Holidays and Celebrations:

Porte Musings:

Take a moment and remember on International Day of Commemoration in Memory of the Victims of the Holocaust.

Get out the books and celebrate Family Literacy Day. Read, read, read….. My father was only able to read at a grade 3 level, but even he liked to read the comics and do the word search puzzles.

Treat yourself with a piece of Chocolate Cake as you celebrate National Chocolate Cake Day.

In December I had a terrible cold and had to go to the hospital for antibiotics. They also took a chest x-ray that showed a small spot of scar tissue on my left lung. The Doctor said not to worry about it, it was a very small spot. So today I go for a follow-up x-ray.

I’m also packing to go to Florida for a vacation. We aren’t taking the cats this time, and I will miss them sorely. I’ve already decided I won’t leave them behind again. My sons will make sure they are fed and cared for while I’m away, but I’ll miss them even if they don’t miss me.

My cat Archie probably wouldn’t catch any rats, his attempts to catch a butterfly still haven’t been successful.  However, his curiosity is like that of all cats and he loves his supervised visits to the outside world.
