Picture of Whiskers


Whiskers was complaining because I haven't shown any pictures of him recently and he has seen the other cats on line so here is a picture of him. Honest his eyes really aren't that scary, I don't know what was with that picture. I took it a few years ago.

Last night I went to a Christmas Sing-along at one of our BGC churches. I got to see the two people I really wanted to. One was a former Pastor of our church who is now 93 I think and Pastor to Seniors at this particular church. He is amazing, we should all be so active at 93. The other was a lady I knew long ago. Her older sister use to babysit us when we were young. (Linda was my favorite baby sitter and to this day I remember her so well with the love and compassion she showed us.) Sharon babysat when Linda couldn't. Anyway I hadn't seen Sharon since my youngest brother was 2 and then I saw her again at Center Lake 2 or 3 years ago. Last night I saw her again and talked to her some. It was nice. It's funny how many years it's been and you just don't forget some people. Sharon and Linda and their family are among those special people. I got caught up on some of the news of the family as they really had a hard year this year with two major losses and other things. So it was good to know they were okay. They are a strong family with strong faith.
Now I wish I could find a few other peoople but oh well...I guess I feel nostalgic. I even got in contact with an old college roomate again.

Over the weekend my nephew, Bryan, moved to Chicago area. He is starting his first job as an Electrical Engineer today. He graduates from college in spring but his studies are done. My nieces and nephews are all growing up to fast. Only 2 are in school one in 5th grade and the other in 12th grade.

On the stitching front I started Santa I can Explain. I found in Just Cross Stitch. It's a cat with a Christmas tree bulb. Reminded me of my brother's cat who died this past Aug. She loved playing with the bulbs on the christmas tree if she could get away with it. Whiskers has never seen a Christmas Tree, I don't think he would leave it alone. Well until next time Happy Stitching!

Whiskers looks like he posed very nicely, isn't it amazing how when the light hits their eyes just right they absolutely glow? I'm glad you were able to catch up with so many people, sounds like it was just what you needed. I haven't seen the Santa I Can Explain one, it sounds cute. Looking forward to seeing a posting of it as a WIP.
