I am an animal magnet....The barking I heard was frantic,hoarse,excited!Mocha my 14 year old chocolate lab goes overboard when she sees another dog.Not to kill or eat it...to play.So,finally after all her insane actions,I went out to investigate.There sitting on our trash can was a very tiny kitten!MEOW she said very loudly..like a grown cat.She wasnt afraid of me when I walked over and picked her bony body up.She batted at my hair and looked me right in my eyes.Meanwhile...Mocha the wonder dog was hopping and barking her silly self ragged.I leaned down with the frail kitten and let her sniff it...She licked it and it pawed her nose!It was shaking with cold so I brought it inside and fed it some kitty formula(from my buddy that fosters them)laid her on my lap after she got full and placed a heating pad on a blanket.She just looked at me...curled up in a ball and fell out...sleeping for two hours!I called my friend Cat Lady and asked her to come get the kitten.Ok she said but it'll have to be tomorrow.Oh no my granddaughter is coming over!I laughed and said well it could be worse.Aaliyah held,kissed,fed and loved HER KITTY until she left.Crying all the way home my daughter said.Miss Kitty wandered all over the house as if to say wheres my little human?She loved Aaliyah asap and never scratched her even once.She can be a rough little girl.I told my daughter if she takes her to the vet,I will buy all her Kitty needs!This is where the story veers off...A knock on my door...Hi says the young woman,my name is Melly and I lost a tiny gray kitten about 3 days ago...almost in tears she showed me the picture...She's here I said...she is???I got the kitten from her box...it was like Melly won the lottery!She looked at me and said Can I have a hug?Of course! I laughed...Melly tried to give me $50 for the kittens care but,I wouldnt take it.I was just glad to have Miss Kitty safe and back home. SUSAN

To spite my injured ankle,Im having fun!The party for the old folks was a hit,They sang,danced and ate pizza and turkey,everyone recieved a gift and nobody was sad!!I went and bought the new baby a ton of things she needs,got my house cleaned and bought the ingredients to Christmas dinner...Seafood Gumbo!Yes,im stepping outside the turkey and dressing we usually have.I want to be with everyone and not stuck in the kitchen.It's SUPPOSED to be sunny and 50 on Christmas day so we are all going to take a long walk after dinner.We'll see because usually the family picks a spot and goes to sleep while I walk.
My doctor is really pleased with my blood pressure going WAY down!Even my husband is helping out by using less salt when HE cooks.
My youngest is skipping classes and trying to place the blame on me?
I just laughed at that strategy of guilt tripping.
Me and my walking group had Subway yesterday,we had so much fun
and they have lost weight!
However you can stay healthy and happy this Holiday Season,Do it!!
I wish you all the greatest week,Enjoy yourselves! SUSAN
