Candle lady is a sucker for the hard luck cases , so she started feeding them and watching from a distance . We currently have 7 cats by the way , so as you can tell we have Lot's of strays come up.
It took about a month of feeding and sitting closer and closer before two of the three would stay put . The third one , a solid grey is still to timid to be touched.
One was a solid black long hair male and the other a calico female.
After the first month or so the Black long hair ( she named Bagerra from Disney movie ) he just one day jumped in her lap and started cuddling her. Of course the calico wasn't far behind.
She took them and had shots done and "fixed" to help cut down on more cats . We have enjoyed the " lil " fella playing on the deck and chasing the "acorns" that fall from our tree.
The black long hair was her favorite by far and she spent allot of time with him . He had personality and was quite the handsome fella.
This brings me to why I'm posting . Last night he was apparently out and was where he shouldn't have been . In the dark I'm sure its hard to see a black cat and the car won. Fortunately he didn't suffer at all. It was quick.
I have a very heartbroken candle lady and short legs today . Of course its always the "favorite" that gets in harms way it seems.
So today is a hard day here . She still has two that she has saved and I have told her to focus on them . And , not to make light of it, there will be more strays and we will save and lose more I'm sure.
I guess i just don't get how people can dump animals and let them starve . Even with the occasional loss of a pet , the joy that comes of spending time and watching them grow and play is worth the risk.
So I guess , My hats off to lil Bagerra today . He will be sorely missed.
Even by the gruff old CoffeeMan .

I realize there are many who would like to and because of stressful circumstances cannot, that's not who I'm referring to here. The world in general is to busy trying to get "rich" .
For example, simple things . Stop for a moment and ask yourself when did I last enjoy this "moment"
(1) A walk holding hands with the one you love.
(2) The smell of a beautiful flower
(3) The hugs of a little child , grandchild
(4) Looking at the stars on a clear beautiful night
(5) The feel of a brand new pair of socks ( one of my favorites)
(6) Cuddling with your sweetie in front of a campfire
(7) The wonder and excitement in the eyes of a child learning
(8) A beautifull sunset or sunrise
(9) Watching two squirrels play hide and go chase in the tree .
(10) Jumping in a pile of leaves
(11) The smell of a campfire burning
(12) That song on the radio that describes what your feeling right at that moment
( Thanks Willow )
(13) reading a book, melting chocolate in your mouth in soft pajamas.
( Thank You Karen Deborah )
(14) ( Add Yours Here )
The best ones dont really cost us anything but our time , and are way more valuable to us than any monetary value we assign to our time .
And I'm sure if we stop and think about it we could add dozens more to this list.
So that's the assignment ! Stop and think , what would you add , or what are your "moments" of simple things that are so precious that somehow get pushed aside in the rat race we call life.
Take the time ! Enjoy those moments ! And most will have to agree , Money isn't even on the list !
Have a Wonderful Day Everyone

**waits for someone to scrape milkmaids butt up off floor and give her smelling salts**
The CandleLady decided that CoffeeMan needed culture in his life and she recently purchased tickets to go see "Celtic Woman " .
Then she asked me if I would be willing to go and see the concert with her . What she didn't know is that I had actually seen parts of it on PBS and was quite impressed . So I said , SURRRRRE Those ladies Jiggle real nice !! *Grins*
After the "LOOK" had subsided and her mouth was off the floor she got online and purchased the tickets . Was $ 30.00 per ticket , so not ungodly high.
Well last night the concert was held and Coffeeman donned his nice pants and white shirt , NO i didn't wear a tie sheeeeeeeesh !! Just how much *culture* is one guy supposed to stand in one night ? *silly girls*
Any way we got all gussied up and even shortlegs *looking quite lady like * and off we went.
The concert started at 8:00 pm and ended at 10:30 with a 20 min intermission.
Now I will tell you , some of the finest 4 part harmony I have ever heard came out of the mouths of the lovely young ladies . They danced and sang and coffeeman was as impressed as I have ever been at ANY concert bar none.
The young lady pictured above doesn't sing , however she plays the violin / fiddle and dances and spins in such a manner that you CANNOT help but be impressed . I was completely blown away at the musical talent presented there last night. They had 2 sets of drums, so lots of percussion . And not just basic drums I mean every type you could think of. Guitarist , flutist , piano , base . And the floor show was excellent , lights and dancing .
And it was easy to tell that the performers were enjoying it as much as I was. They didn't come off as aloof or special by any means . I honestly felt I was watching a group of down home folks doing what they do best and trying really hard to put on a excellent show to give me what I paid for .
SO HUSBANDS . ** And Evan Too** If you get a chance to take your lovely brides /Lady friends too* ** snorts** to see the concert Celtic Women . Do So . You Will NOT be disappointed .

(Oct. 7) -- A NASA probe is about to fire a missile into the moon and you might be able to get a glimpse of the impact.
The missile released by the Lunar Crater Observing and Sensing Satellite (LCROSS) will slam into the moon's south pole Friday, sending up a plume of debris several miles high. Instruments on the booster trailing the missile will analyze the debris and, before also crashing into the lunar surface, will relay the data to the
( " LCROSS " ) orbiter.
We are living on a planet that is suffering from:
Lack of Fresh Water
Lack of food for millions
Lack of proper Medication for millions
War that seems will NEVER end
We have a Unemployment rate that is as bad as its been in yrs
We have an economy that is getting worse
We have Farmers going out of business daily
We have A national debt that is absolutely ludicrous
We have disease that we have created that we CANNOT cure
We have terrorist that kill and mutilate daily
We have increasing tax Difficulty
We have Lack of health Insurance for Millions
SHALL I CONTINUE !!
This is only a small portion of the vast problems that we as a RACE OF HUMANS ARE FACING !
DOESN'T MATTER WHAT POLITICAL SIDE YOU ARE ON OR WHAT COUNTRY YOU LIVE IN ITS THE SAME !
And NOW the powers that be ( Both Sides ) want to spend hard earned tax dollars on sending a bomb to the MOON To Look for water ??
HEY STUPID !!
Hows about we look for a solution to problems we have here and spend the money that way !!
Don't even try and tell me that this "science" will benefit mankind . That's a load of Horse Crap !
But sir you don't see the long term potential !! HOG HEWEY !! The long term potential is Crap. I DO SEE THE POTENTIAL OF CURING CANCER WITH WHAT WE HAVE HERE ON THE PLANET SPEND MONEY LOOKING THERE !!
I DO SEE THE LONG TERM POTENTIAL OF SOLVING THE ENERGY CRISIS SPEND MONEY THERE
I DO SEE THE LONG TERM POTENTIAL OF FEEDING MILLIONS FOR A WHILE ON WHAT THIS WILL COST SPEND MONEY THERE
This is a perfect example of money being wasted on stupidity rather than using it to the GOOD of mankind in general .
This isn't a political post , this is simply a post in regards to the waste of my money on ignorance and things that are TOTALLY unnecessary in the name of science and space travel !
You want to impress me ?
STOP THE STUPID STUFF AND START SOLVING THE TROUBLE WE HAVE NOW!!
