Yep that's me way before I was Madi's mom...or anybody's mom...Nov 1958. I was in a play at Cary Elementary..I was 9. We had a party at home afterwards. My maternal grandmother (Annie Ma) on my right and my faternal Grandmother on my left (trying to hide her cigarette). Two cousins and my aunt behind us.
Perfect lunch spot because: It is five minutes from my office, never crowded, abundant seating, beautiful birds, butterflies, and flowers and most of all several beautiful, relaxing fountains. The most gorgeous Azaleas of all colors and varieties in the spring... shhhh it is my secret.
The first cat we were owned by was Milky Way. Flash back to 1986 (as evident with the very old console tv)....Milky Way is 4 months old and into and under everything. He was pint size when we brought him home...the boxes in front of the tv were to keep him from getting under it....he was a perpetual 2 year old.
Flash forward to 1987 Milky way is now 1 year old and no longer pint size he is about 10 lbs. and very tall. Every morning when I would go into the kitchen, I would find that he had been quite busy overnight. He opened drawer below the oven and the cabinet doors as shown in this picture.
