Birth, Death, Infinity...

Some of us will remember that as part of the opening to "Ben Casey". Right now, it's more about what's going on in my purview.

Yesterday, it was announced that Greg Lake's daughter, who held the doors for me in April, gave birth to a little boy, Gabriel on 9/27. Greg hasn't made formal announcement, but reports are that all's well. He's Greg and Regina's first grandchild. Congrats to the whole Lake family.

My garden, such as it was, is officially dead for the year. I really have to get around to decorating for Halloween, or Samhain (pronounced sow'en) as we call it. The wheel of the year keeps turning.

My Greatniece is getting married in December. I'm at various moments, happy for her, scared for her, surprised, proud, flipped out and sad. She'll be moving away permanently to BC, Canada. I wish them the best of luck. And boy do I feel old now.

There's so much going on in the world that I can't even face it all. If you can, here's the lowdown:

Kateri Tekakwitha is on track to be the first Native American saint. My HS English teacher, Fr, Kevin Kenney, must be thrilled, as he runs her shrine in Fonda, NY. Another place I've been meaning to go.

And because this is a happy day, here are some funny cats with tales to tell

Thrills and chills to come later...

How shallow am I when I can pass on world news and native saints to watch talking cats?? And I'd do it again too lol.

Lawless, there are some days when all you can stand are talking cats.

I'm with you both. I simply couldn't cope with world news, or native saints in the making. Talking cats? Oh yes. And thank you.

EC- It's election season all right, and we can't get distracted enough!
