our cruise. I am not complaining, I much prefer to be home.
2. My book isn’t selling as well as I had hoped. 🙁
3. A disappointment is a blessing in disguise. Sometimes. Whenever my car needs repairs and I can’t go somewhere, I think of it as God protecting me from a car accident.
4. My favorite word is YES. Usually in the form of yes, you can adopt another cat.

Joanie and Sammy thank you all for the birthday wishes.

They shared a kitty cake ( canned food) and got some Temptations for a present. Joanie was sad that her friend, The Great One wasn’t here so we will celebrate again on Tuesday.

Sammy’s day wasn’t as good as Joanie’s. He went to the vet with Prancie because they both were due for thyroid blood work.Bad timing on my part.

Poor Gremmie fell off his skateboard at recess and hurt his ear. We just can’t find a helmet big enough to cover those ears.

Lyrical  # Challenge, Day One. Thank you Cathy ( Curious as a Cathy) for nominating me for this challenge. Here are the rules:

1 Thank the person who nominated you.
2 Share one of your favorite song/lyrics one at a time for three days.
3 Nominate three other bloggers each day.

Today is my niece’s 5th wedding anniversary. One of my favorite songs is I Loved Her First by Heartland ( written by Elliot Park and Walt Aldridge). She danced with her Father to this song and I cried. Actually, it is so beautiful I cry every time I hear it.

Look at the two of you dancing that way
Lost in the moment and each other’s face
So much in love, you’re alone in this place
Like there’s nobody else in the world
I was enough for her not long ago
I was her number one, she told me so
And she still means the world to me
Just so you know
So be careful when you hold my girl
Time changes everything, life must go on
And I’m not gonna stand in your way
I loved her first
I held her first
And a place in my heart will always be hers
From the first breath she breathed
When she first smiled at me
I knew the love of a father runs deep
And I prayed that she’d find you someday
But it’s still hard to give her away
I loved her first
How could that beautiful woman with you
Be that same freckled face kid that I knew?
The one that I read all those fairy tales to
And tucked into bed all those nights
And I knew the first time I saw you with her
It was only a matter of time
I loved her first
I held her first
And a place in my heart will always be hers
From the first breath she breathed
When she first smiled at me
I knew the love of a father runs deep
And I prayed that she’d find you someday
But it’s still hard to give her away
I loved her first
From the first breath she breathed
When she first smiled at me
I knew the love of a father runs deep
Someday you might know what I’m going through
When a miracle smiles up at you
Yeah, I loved her first
I am not good at following rules so I am not nominating 3 people. If you like music and want to join in the fun then consider yourself nominated.

She chose the “Elsa” bear, for the bargain price of $7, you can add a piece in her paw that sings “Let it Go”. SO glad we went with that so we could hear it 30 times on the way home 🙂  Just kidding, I had as much fun as she did.
3. My favorite place to be is home with my kitties. And hubby. If I could get my Mom to move in with us, it would be even better.
4. If I was granted one wish, it would be that no animal ever had to suffer. ( How many people thought I would say to meet Nicolas Cage?).

Another outfit for Joanie. She really loves The Great One and stays right with her.

4. If I had to choose a new first name, it would be Bridget. That was my maternal grandmother’s name.
The Great One wanted Joanie to wear Trouble’s dress ( don’t tell Trouble).

2. Am I the only one who asks Alexa if I am the fairest one of all?  I am always asking her questions and I couldn’t resist. The first time. she said I was, the second time, I wasn’t.
3. Joni Nelson is my heroine. She gets up at 3 AM daily to feed ferals in Boston, MA in all weather. Her recue is called Boston’s Forgotten Felines. You can follow them on Instagram, click here. Honestly, anyone who does anything to help cats is my hero.

  Joanie was pretty tired at the end of The Great One’s visit.We didn’t go to Build-A-Bear because my niece saw on Facebook that they had closed off the line at 300. I assume that was all they had for inventory. I did get a voucher in my email for $15 off so we will go soon. I don’t think waiting in a line for hours would have been fun at all.
