It is located in the next town, but only 5 miles from where I live. 4 towns were taken over to build it to supply water to Boston, MA.It is a beautiful place to walk and bike ride. It boggles my mind that they could destroy 4 small towns, moving cemeteries and forcing people to leave. To earn more about it click here.

2. My favorite room in my home is the bedroom, I love to read in there with kitties next to me.

3. Back-to-school time makes me think of taking a photo of my niece on her first day of school from preschool all the way through college.

Friendly Fill-Ins Week 66

Hi everyone! Time for Friendly Fill-Ins. Be sure to add your link at McGuffy’s Reader. You can also answer in the comment section. Thank you to all who participate, it is a pleasure getting to know everyone better.

1. Blind dates _______________.
2. _______________years ago, I _______________________.

3. I admire                         because                             .

4.                         makes me think                              .
My answers:
1. Blind dates can actually work out sometime. That is how I met my hubby, a friend of a friend thought we would be a good match-and she was correct. That blind date was June 4, 1989. I actually refused at first, but changed my mind a week later.
2. 25 years ago, I was planning our wedding and working as a mental health counselor. I only have a Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology and still can’t believe I used to meet with mentally ill people and attempt to help them. They still had therapists and psychiatrists,  but looking back now I realize how unqualified I was along with the rest of the staff. This is probably why so many people with mental illness don’t get to function as well as they could.
3.I admire anyone who fosters cats because I know my heart won’t let me. Maybe I am selfish, but once something is in my care, I can’t give it up. I am sure it breaks their heart every time they have to part with a kitty, but they keep doing it and saving so many.
4. My inflamed ingrown toenail makes me think using scissors to cut my nails wasn’t a wise choice. 🙂
