Calvin Coolidge was the 30th President of the United States, serving from 1923 to 1929.

This photo of Astrid was taken on December 29, 2011. She was four-and-a-half months old. She and Lisbeth had joined the Kitties Blue crew that October.

Sparks began as a blog hop, created by our friend, Annie (McGuffy’s Reader). Annie is taking a “break” from blogging, so there is no hop. Many of us still continue to post a Spark on Monday, as we believe in Annie’s vision: “I believe we are meant to be lights in this world. If we allow our light to shine, we can see where we are going. It is then that we can begin to truly see each other clearly. Together, we can light up the entire world!”

This fun-loving, tabby duo will return with the next installment in their adventure series. You can find them right here tomorrow. I know they both are looking forward to sharing the fun with all of you.

Astrid was an adorable kitten. Your Calvin Coolidge quote is a wonderful spark for the season.

Dear Astrid, I wish I were cuddled up next to you in that photo. That is my Christmas wish. I hope you and your family have a very Merry Christmas! I’m sending you all my love and a kiss for every snowflake that has fallen.
P.S. We are hoping to get your present out in the mail to you today, so be on the lookout. Sorry for it being late…

That is a very appropriate spark and a great photo of Astrid. I think she is about the same age as my Frankie, maybe a few months younger.

What a precious photo of Astrid….probably worn out from being a kitten – they get wound up quickly then wind down just as quickly! That’s a GREAT Spark from President Coolidge……perfect.

Hugs, Teddy and Mom
