I have been feeling particularly sad lately with the fires, floods, storms, mass shootings, dying sea coral and so many other disasters. One of the best ways, I have found, to deal with sadness is through laughter. When I found this quote from Red Skelton, it seemed perfect.


laugh life happiness: A sad looking dilute tortoise shell cat with her head resting on a grey stuffed cat. 

I think Calista Jo needs to laugh a little, as she is is looking pretty sad in her photo. Nevertheless, I think the photo works well with the Spark.

Sparks is the creation of Annie from McGuffy’s Reader. Sparks began as a blog hop, created by our friend. Annie stated when she began Sparks, “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.”

The Adventures of Periwinkle & Stinky

It’s time again for our fun-loving tabbies, Periwinkle & Stinky, to take-off on another adventure. It’s Stinky’s turn to plan their adventure. He has not confided in me his plans. So, I’ll be right here tomorrow to check out what they get up to. And, I know, Periwinkle and Stinky will be looking for you as well. Adventures are always more fun with lots of friends coming along.

Thanks for joining us today.
