“Governor Cuomo Touched My Picture!”

Monday, March 29th, 2021

” … he said I was beautiful.”
” … he made sexist remarks.”
” … he made me feel uncomfortable.”

I strongly believe every woman should be taken seriously when she makes a charge of sexual harassment or aggression. Those actions are against the law and rightly so.

And there ARE too many men who make sexist, inappropriate, and stupid comments. Should women have to put up with those? Of course not – in an ideal world. But we don’t live in an ideal world.

I respect women who stand up and directly say, “Stop making comments like that to me!” In many situations, I’ll bet most men would be shocked and apologize immediately.

Ignorance is not a valid excuse but that’s what we have. It’s up to women to take charge, refuse to accept sexism, and educate the dolts on the spot. Quickly you’d have a lot fewer dolts!

Tuffy is making progress. He even walked a few steps and drank some water last night. His main job is still sleeping and recovering.

I’d like to thank my friends who’ve expressed their concerns for Tuffy. You’ve all touched my heart again. Thank you.

Tuffy’s Terrible Tragedy

Saturday, March 27th, 2021

Thursday I brought Tuffy the Cat to a new vet for a haircut. His old vet charged about $500 for an examination, sedation, and a shave. I thought the new vet would be less expensive.

Unfortunately Tuffy freaked out, bit one of the assistants, and scratched the vet and another assistant. To calm him down, they gave him TWO heavy shots of sedation.

By the time I picked him up, he was an unconscious, ball of crumbled fur in the bottom of his carrier.

Although now, 24-hours later, he’s conscious but can’t walk nor barely stand. He’s eaten very little and only drank a tiny bit of water.

He doesn’t seem to be suffering and responds to pets. Mostly, he just sleeps. Heart-breakingly, last night he crawled across the bed and sprawled onto my lap.

All I do now is pet him every few minutes and watch him sleep. And wait.

For 78¢ A Day You Can Clothe These Girls …

Thursday, March 25th, 2021

. . . or just click your mouse.

Until she was 12-years old, Cindy didn’t know clothes came from places other than city dumps, Salvation Army hangers, or her 13-year old twin brother,  Wilbur. Times were so tough that when Wilbur was supposed to be born, her Mom had to hold him in for an extra 6-months.

When Cindy entered Junior High School at 12, she was classified as ‘gifted’ by her 42-year old homeroom teacher, half the boys in her class, and her gym teacher, who ironed towels for her.

Cindy quickly bonded with her clothes-less school friends like Stephanie, Naomi, and the rest – but somehow, they never quite felt like the other girls: “dressed”.

And that’s a pity because for only 78¢ a day – less than the extra cost of Bleu Cheese dressing on a side salad – you could be covering up Cindy and all her naked friends.  Think of it:  a lousy pocketful of change a day could change the lives of these ragamuffins.

Won’t you please help?

Tuffy Is Terrified

Wednesday, March 24th, 2021
(Above) Before last haircut.
(Below) After.

Tuffy, my cat, is going to the vet tomorrow for a haircut. He has to be sedated before they begin. The bill will probably be over $500.

Many cats hate the vet but Tuffy REALLY hates the vet! Plus he’s HUGE for a cat – about 30-pounds – and when he freaks (every time he goes) someone could get hurt. I attach this note to his cat carriage so the assistants remember he’s just afraid and not mean.

When he’s home alone with me, he’s the kindest cat I have ever owned.

Tuffy is a “Special Needs” cat from the Verona Street Rescue Shelter.
