With this being Martin Luther King Jr. Day, I felt a quote from him would be appropriate, I had a difficult time selecting what I wanted to post, as King said so many things that rang true to me.


Martin Luther King Jr.


King was prophetic in so many of the things he said. Many of his quotes seem to be speaking directly to those in our government today.

The photo is one of Dad Tom’s. It was taken in North Carolina. Unfortunately Tom does not remember he name of the waterfall.

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!”

The Adventures of Periwinkle & Stinky Reminder

Your two favorite, fun-loving tabbies will be here tomorrow for their next adventure. It is an extra special one that you don’t want to miss. Even if you are not followers of Periwinkle and Stinky’s adventure series, we truly hope you will join them tomorrow.



Awww Mondays



Misty May was having an afternoon snooze in a sunpuddle when this photo was taken. Calista Jo is in the rear in her go-to spot for a day-long snooze. Both kitties are joining the AWWW Mondays blog hop at Comedy Plus.

MLK was a man ahead of his time. His quotes speak to us as if he just said them yesterday. Perhaps these difficulties are ageless because there will always be bigots and ignorant folk to see these habits are carried on but no one ever thinks it applies to them though.

Sunlight streaming in one’s face is an acquired taste. I don’t much care for it but the furries seem to really enjoy it.

There’s nothing better than snoozing in a sunpuddle if you ask me. Happy MLK Day! ~Ernie

How do cats do that? I tried to nap with sunshine streaming in, and it was too bright for me!

That’s a perfect quote for today and every day. MLK was very wise. We love that photo of Misty May stretched out in the sunpuddle. As cold as it’s been I’m sure that’s a perfect spot to keep warm. I know where those spots are in my house too and on a cold day – I’m THERE! Happy Monday!

Hugs, Teddy
