Grammar Lesson

On her awesome blog, Editor Cheryl Klein reviews the proper usage of the semicolon and the comma.
Useful stuff!

Also since this month is Adopt-Shelter-Cat  Month be sure to check out the Itty Bitty Kitty Committee website to see some adorable kittens. While you're there why not donate to a worthy cause?

Lucky the Cat

About six months after I adopted Bailey, it came very clear that she was getting restless being home by herself when I was working. So, I decided it was time to expand our feline family and made a trip to the Warren County Animal Shelter. I looked at a couple of the kittens but Lucky caught my eye. He was very active and played with all the toys in the kitten room but he was also attentive to me as well. I knew he'd be a good match for Bailey and me. When I was completing the paperwork for his adoption, one of the workers mentioned that he was almost adopted the day before, but when they were placing the id chip in his neck, the lady balked. She thought id chip was the mark of the beast and refused to take him home. He's named Lucky, because it was luck that saved him from having to go home with that lady. He came home with me instead and I think we're all better for it!

Don't forget June is Adopt-A-Shelter-Cat Month!

Last Night At the Bookstore

A lady walked into the bookstore holding a chihuahua in a shoulder bag while at the same time a monk walked in the other side of the door. I think I can say with a large degree of certainty that this has never happened before and may never happen again. It was an interesting evening. There was also a lady who had a huge tattoo in the middle of her chest(she was was scantily clad in a camisole), that when viewed from far away looked like an enormous lowercase 'e'.

How was your evening?

Adopt-a-Shelter Cat Month

Since June is Adopt-a-Shelter Cat Month, I thought I would spend some time this month highlighting some of the favorite cats in my life. The first one up is Bailey. Some misguided human left Bailey and her siblings in a dumpster when she was just a wee kitten. Some nice humans found them and took them to the Warren County Animal Shelter where they were fostered by one of the veterinarians on staff. I went to visit the kittens and Bailey looked up at me with those big green eyes and well the rest as they say is history.

Some of you may remember the Halloween post where Bailey hijacked the blog. You can read that entry here

At the Bookstore

Last night at the bookstore, I had a customer (he was of middle eastern descent) ask for a book on how to make a bomb from office materials.  We didn't have it...
