An Unpleasant Task

Yesterday I had the unpleasant task of burying a beautiful cat that was allowed to roam and got hit by a car. I saw it happen. Since the cat wandered all over the neighborhood, we have no idea who it belongs to. But under the circumstances, I doubt if the owner cares anyway. I don't think they deserve to know.

The man who hit it was just going to leave the cat laying there, but I thought that was awful, so I got a box and buried the poor thing in my backyard under the forsythia where it always watched birds.

I'm still upset about it because it didn't have to happen if the cat was kept indoors. There are too many predators and dangers to allow pets to roam. No excuses.

Christmas Open House at the Two Rivers Mansion

The beautiful Two Rivers Mansion in Donelson, TN (next to McGavock High School)will be open this weekend for Christmas. Area florists are decorating the parlors and hallways downstairs and there are several of us upstairs that make and sell handmade jewelry, pet items, stained glass and other things. Refreshments are served in the dining room.

I will be there with my stained glass, glass mosaics and gemstone jewelry. If you are in the area, I hope to see you there!
