Abraham Lincoln's And My Sister Jackie's Happy February 12 Birthday
On this day, February 12, far less than two centuries ago, my Favorite Sister Jackie was born, later to become the mama of my Favorite Nephews Christopher and Jeremy.
To celebrate Abe's and my sister's birthday I was going to go to River Legacy Park in Arlington to have myself a peaceful, contemplative walk.
But, when the time came to go walking I opted for a shorter drive and instead went to the Village Creek Natural Historical Area in Arlington to walk with the Indian Ghosts who haunt that location.
Village Creek is currently looking very peaceful, with the water running so clear it looks almost clean enough to swim in, if one has no aversion to snapping turtles, water moccasins and sharp-toothed garfish.
Last Saturday someone told me they found what I write to be amusing. I said I had no idea I was amusing and verbalized my fear that this new found information would make me self-conscious regarding whether or not I was being amusing.
Ever since this amusing revelation I have been experiencing what I think is some version of what is known as writer's block.
I am on Day Five of Cat Sitting Duty. Miss Puerto Rico checks in several times a day to make sure I am doing my duty. Last night when I went to check on the Babies I could not find Coco. Belly Baby was in her regular spot on Miss Puerto Rico's bed, but Coco was hidden from me.
I do not know if Coco was playing a cat game with me, moving to various hiding locations, or what.
But, it took around a half hour before I finally located the little devil, on the bed, right next to Belly Baby, but hidden under a sheet. I am almost 100% certain that that cat was not there when I first discovered her to be missing.
I have not checked in on the meow-ers today. I supposed I should do so.....
