    They’re old and don’t do much of anything except sleep, eat and sneeze all over the back porch window. But we like them.

    Of the two, Mohawk is the easiest and Target is the troublemaker. He thinks biting is a sign of affection as is waking us up at 4:45 a.m. to announce that he’s famished, even though there’s food in his dish. He just likes it to be refreshed — at his command.

  • As I age, the clock seems to be in a hurry to be done with the entire affair.

    No matter how hard I try, I can never catch up. I waste money when I buy a calendar. I never use the entire thing because the new year catches me by surprise and I completely miss the January and February pages.

Unfortunately, I don’t have the leisure to waste any time that’s zooming by at an alarming rate.
