Please vote ............

Tomorrow is election day. I hope everyone regardless of party gets out and votes for the candidate of their choice. Voting is a right and an obligation.

I haven't seen the little black dog again. I hope he found his way home. Our next dog will find us one of these days. If one doesn't show up at our door, we'll visit the local SPCA.

The cats are not getting along any better, but they do try to avoid each other. Maggie May is the main instigator of trouble. She is very jealous and has quite a temper. Hubby was petting Mazie Grace the other afternoon, while Maggie was sitting close by watching his every move. He was ignoring Maggie, so I told him he should pet her too. When he tried, Maggie hissed and growled at him and tried to nip his hand. A few minutes later, she jumped on his foot and tried to bite him. She wouldn't let him touch her until several hours later when all seemed to be forgotten and forgiven. Maggie thinks she is the top cat in this household.

I may not get to update my blog for awhile. My Dad is not doing well, so I've been spending most of my time trying to care for him. He is refusing to eat or drink anything, so we have to continually force liquids into him. I'm afraid he won't be with us much longer, so I want to spend as much time as possible with him.

Everyone voting tomorrow is SO important, I agree.

I wish you strength and peace trying to care for your dad. I know how trying that can be. Take Care!

I will send up a prayer for you. I know it will be hard to care for your dad, if these are his last days.

The cats will learn!

I pray for strength for you in the coming days. It is so hard to see our parent slipping away.

Spending time with your dad is most important. Sorry things have come to this. I'll pray for his peace.

Doesn't surprise me about Mazie Grace. I swear she's channeling Jezebelle!

Do you think the dog is at the SPCA? I bet you've already checked...

I'm sorry to hear that life is difficult for you at the moment. Looking after a parent at this particular time in my experience is very time consuming but very important time. My thoughts and prayers are with you, regards, J

Aw, I'm so sorry about your dad. Yes, spend every minute with him that you can. And may I suggest, if he's doing any talking at all, write down what he says. I wrote down a bunch of stuff my mother said when we were losing her and now when I look back on it, I'm so glad I did. I'm not even talking about things like old stories or memories--she was too sick for that. Just simple statements that she made. Saying she was hungry, calling for my brother, things like that. It had her little spin on it, how she talks. I wish I would have done more. I'll be thinking about you and your dad.

Hope your day is improving.

We voted paper absentee ballot. As usual neither of us got all we hoped for and we even cancelled each other on a couple of local issues.

But we do not discuss our vote until it is mailed in, and I consider this the greatest American privilege, my husband spent 20+ years in the Navy defending.
