Lloyd Nolan was a marvelous actor---under-rated and (sadly) not well known today. He played Mickey Rooney's priest in "It Came Upon the Midnight Clear," too. Distinctive voice.

Now he is back to sleeping in the cat tree.



Priceless pic! I love the "Morris" expression on his face!

Not a happy Monday. Got rear-ended on the way to work---just slightly. I was stopped at a traffic light and the car behind me rolled forward and bumped me. Enough bumper damage to put in a claim, but no injuries. So I have forms to fill out and have to schedule an appointment with an insurance appraiser. Be careful out there, folks.

And we're supposed to get 4 to 8 inches of snow overnight. Make ... it ... stop. Please.

..A big animal lover, like us. She would willingly be in the crazy cat lady club, too! She takes many strays in, and allows them to call her garage home. She even heats it in the winter, and lays out blankets. She also volunteers at a local shelter, and covers their medical needs. Love her!

Thanks, friends.
Prayers are on the way, snowflake. Be safe!

Good afternoon, MMC!

The precipitation is almost here. It is getting very dreary out. Time to have a snack and then back to the paper work.

Be safe!!!!

I had allergy testing done and came up with wheat/gluten and dairy allergies. I am also allergic to many outdoor stuff as well. What a bummer, huh? I miss out on so many yummy goodies but I make the best of it! =)

Even with that "don't care" looking face, he has got to be the most sweetest, loving, floppiest cat around! What I mean by floppy, he just melts in your arms and never squirms when you go to pick him up. He is not afraid of anyone unlike my other cat, Gary, who darts to the other room when people come over. Gary is very loving to those who live in our house, everyone else thinks we have just one cat because they never see him!

Sorry to hear about your accident. I am thankful you were not hurt!

Oh, I know him quite well and have that movie in my collection.
Watched him in the TV series "Julia" back in the '60's.
