I am also going to join the Friendship Friday Hop:Friendship FridayCreate with Joy

Another hop I have been wanting to join and finally remembered is: The Friday 56 is a fun hop, you turn to page 56 of a book you are reading  ( or 56% in a reader) and pick a line. I haven’t been reading as much this past month since my beloved Lucy has been gone. We had started to read My Street Cats Their Personalities and Social Behavior by Raphaella Bilski . Here’s a line from page 56 even though we only got to page 48: “One harsh winter day, we heard the fierce cries of a kitten.”
