Hi Everyone!

Hi Everyone-

I’d like to thank you for reading the stories on my blog, crittersandcats.com. I’ve posted a total of 125 stories, now, and hope you’ve found something that makes you laugh or means something to you. I started writing these little one and two page stories for my kids and grand-kids to tell them about Pat and I and things we’ve been involved in. I also wanted to remind the kids of some of the things we enjoyed or suffered through together.

One person asked if I enjoyed living in the past and he thought that I must miss the “good old days”. I had to tell this guy that the good old days are right now. A lot of my stories took place 50 or 60 years ago but could have happened this week. The year doesn’t really matter. What’s important or funny is what you were doing or thinking back then.

Today is a wonderful example of a good old day. I can hear my wife doing things in the kitchen. That’s amazing in that she received a Pacemaker two months ago. Though there have been some other medical issues, we are getting through them. She is still talking and laughing and petting the cat and feeding the hummingbirds and sitting in the swing and holding hands with me. She is making the most of every day. Back in 1950 or 1960, those so-called “good old days”, I would have lost her. Thank God for the technical advancements we enjoy today.

I haven’t been in the mood to write or do much lately but I’ve got a few more stories and will start posting them. They probably won’t make you feel any smarter but maybe I’ll get a laugh or grin out of you.

If you haven’t had much time to look around the blog, the stories can be categorized. On the right side of your screen, scroll down a few inches and you will find the heading, “Categories”. Listed below it, you will find Birds, Cats, Critters, Horses, Kids, and the rest of them. Just click on the one you want. This makes it a little quicker to get to the subjects you like best.

  1. Dave, I enjoy all your stories, they don’t have to be funny or historical. They stimulate my memories of a story or memory gone by. I’m glad Pat is going forward and you guys are enjoying each other. That’s just great and it’s what us older guys enjoy most. Keep it up you two! Jan and I are doing fine. A visit with the Doc now and then but that’s ok too. Nothing major as yet so we feel blessed to do most things we like. I go to office nearly every day just for something to do or just visit and let Jan do her thing. I play pickleball twice a week and still go fishing when weather allows. Hope this finds you all do great. Keith and Jan

  2. As being your daughter-in-law for only the last nine years…I love the stories from the good old days. I love learning and hearing about all the Thomas clan. I mostly love the stories about all three kids when they were little and the things they got into…those twins and their sister. Thanks dad for all the wonderful stories. Keep sharing! >^..^<
