Here are three things that made me smile this last week:

Share Your World – 2016 Week 35

And now for this week’s Share Your World (https://ceenphotography.com/2016/08/29/share-your-world-2016-week-36/).

List 2 things you have to be happy about?

Kevin and kitties.  And bacon 🙂

If you could take a photograph, paint a picture or write a story of any place in the world, what and where would it be?

The inside of my brain.  Or the brains of certain other people.  Maybe that would help me understand…

Should children be seen and not heard?

I don’t know – I have kitties.  They prefer to be both!

List at least five of your favorite first names.

I don’t know that I have any favourite first names.  For some reason, the name Mortimore leapt to mind.  I also like Sebastian and Alastair.  And Zaphod Beeblebrox – that’s a pretty good one!  At any rate, they would all make good kitty names, don’t you think?

Friday after work with kitties

A response in avoidance of the Daily Post’s Writing Prompt https://dailypost.wordpress.com/prompts/mistake/

For the first time in a while, I had (mostly) a good week at work.  Jasper and Elliot helped me celebrate after work yesterday before Kevin got home.  Well, they helped me fall asleep on the couch anyway.   Enjoy your weekends everyone!
