Rest in Peace, Sweet Little Kitty

I am sorry to share that the precious little girl of my previous post suddenly stopped eating, failed rapidly, and passed away the evening of September 17. She was such a loving, friendly kitty, and I will have fond memories of her the rest of my life. 

I never did get the "definitive" good photo of Sweetie. For all her beauty, she was as modest and humble as could be, doing her best to avoid posing. :0} Over the years I probably deleted ten photos for every one that I even bothered to keep. But at least I have those.

I hope each of you who visits this obscure spot on the web is well and happy. I'll try to be back sooner next time!

A couple snaps of Sweetie kitty. She has no desire to have her photo taken, and I rarely succeed in capturing her with even her eyes open.

All is mostly the same, and therefore good enough! Still no place to stage photos, which pretty much shuts down my blogging.

I am reading Susan Branch's Martha's Vineyard-Isle of Dreams and My Own Two Feet by Beverly Cleary. I'm enjoying both memoirs immensely. Branch's is the 3rd of three books on her life; Cleary's is the 2nd of two.

I hope and pray you are well and happy.

Loveliest of summers to you!

A Little Book about My Life


One other thing I've been working on a little bit at a time this past year is finishing writing a short (92pp) book about my life and putting it in the Amazon Kindle Store. It is part memoir/part devotional, so I do share my faith as well as scenes from my life.

Some of the stories have appeared on my blog in the very early days, but the book contains over twice as much new material. If you would like to read about my miraculous rescue from my abductor, how I failed to attain the career for which I earned my college degree, how I learned I had been married to a homosexual for twenty years, and much more, I invite you to purchase 'Can't Hardly' Live Without Hope by Bess Andrewson.

I hope you'll find it interesting, but even more than that, I hope you'll find it encouraging.

Thank you for your kindness. Comments are off, so for now please leave your review on Amazon, if you're so inclined. Or you can email me at mycottagediaryatyahoodotcom, and I'll try to remember to check my email from time to time.

Be blessed,
