My fun day signing Driving with Cats at the Twin Cities Cat Fanciers Cat Show

Recently, I took part in the Twin Cities Cat Fanciers Cat Show in Crystal, MN. I was a vendor and shared a booth with fellow cat author and friend Angie Holland Bailey. We had a great time!

Here's how my cats inspire me to be good and to do good.

gratitude — a graceful survival skill

I went on a little spending spree the other day -- why? Because things are tight! Hmmmm...makes sense, right? Money is tight, so...spend money! Fortunately, I came to my senses once I got home. I'm going to return the stuff today. And it's cheap stuff! It won't last. This is not like me. But it's [...]
