Official Pet A Dragon Day!

Hurray!

It was brought to my attention yesterday during the official Pet A Kitty Day celebration that Dragons also like petting…
Totally disregarding the large hole bitten in my leg and the incessant demand for Dragon treats, I yield to the need for equality.
Let’s all join in and celebrate DRAGON PETTING DAY!

Just like with cats there are cautions and approved methods:

It is however never appropriate to poke a dragon with a stick—-

Here’s wishing you a safe and happy holiday!!!

Excerpt- Weekend Warriors 7/28/13

A short excerpt from Kris— A Charles the Cat Story. For clarity, Kris lives at a Catholic orphanage:

The brisk evening air almost forced the boy back inside, but he was determined to be certain of what he had seen. Searching the pathway right and left, Kris found nothing but blowing snow. He had almost given up when he heard the soft mewing. Scrambling backwards, he scanned the pathway one more time. Standing in the dim light, white on white, was a tiny kitten, crying inconsolably. Grabbing the little creature and tucking it quickly under his jacket, Kris turned back toward the building, but almost collided with the parish priest in his hurry.
Flailing to keep his balance, Kris nearly knocked the man down and had pulled open the closure of the priest’s huge overcoat. “What have we here?”

Have a wonderful weekend!

Monday Monday

kittehWasn’t that a song? I think most people don’t like Monday because they leave their weekend and go back to work. My Mondays are the same as any day…and YES, I work in my pajamas. However, that’s not why I’m a writer.

There is nothing like doing what you love. It isn’t easy always to know what that entails. I have thoroughly enjoyed many occupations. The trick is to know yourself and stay on a chosen course. Determine what you love and never give up.

So today is Monday. I’m at home, sitting at my desk. Yes, I think I’ll stay in my pajamas. I am going to write. Where are you and what are you doing?

Weekend Warriors 7/7/13

A little excerpt from Kris— Kris has been sent to the genetic testing clinic a second time to confirm his identity.

Imagination running wild, Kris envisioned his parents as rebels, rock stars and time travelers…always coming back to the same conclusion. It was more likely that his genetics were tied with a set of criminals serving life sentences in maximum security.
As he stared up toward the dropped ceiling, the boy wished that he was somewhere else. He really did not want to learn that his father and mother were akin to Bonnie and Clyde. “Next,” the nurse called his name after reexamining his forms. “Kris Cane.” Looking up from the hallway chair, he wondered why she bothered. There was no one there except him.

Another Manic Tuesday

Those of you who know me are familiar with my manic call. Hahahahaha!

For the rest I say no worries. There is plenty of time to learn that I enjoy humor, especially directed at myself. Striped cats love to laugh!

Laughter and dreams define our worlds. they make us who we are. In the best of times they give us identity and in the worst they give us hope. You can let go of them, if you want. As for me? I am a striped cat and a dragon who believes that one day he may just be a human.
