Two days after this past Christmas I received a call that a calico cat had been found on north Highway 8l. She was found on a property with a Campbell’s chunky soup can stuck on her head. Once again an angel of mercy was there to rescue her. She was brought to the York Animal Clinic where she was checked out and brought up to date on her shots. She was later spayed and is now waiting for her forever home.

They are only 8 years of age, but they’re seniors already. That’s because 8-plus is the age dogs at York Adopt-a-Pet are considered senior citizens.
Those are the events that alter the course of your life: marriage, births, job changes, moving locations either across town or across the country. Sometimes we get so wrapped up in our usual schedule of daily responsibilities and familiar routines that when something changes within our personal universe, we can be completely thrown off kilter.
The years continue to roll on, the hill is steeper and the months and years are sliding down faster each year. We are already half through the month of January and as of today at 5 we have received 22 cats and kittens in the month of January. Thankfully we have adopted 14 cats and kittens with three or four more that will be potentially adopted this week.
On August 22, 2017, I arrived at work to find three dogs lingering around the office front door. I recognized these dogs because they were known in the town and usually seen hanging out in the yard across the street from my office. It was unusual for them to come so close, as they had always been leery of people. They were definitely trying to communicate that they were hungry; looking very thin and malnourished.
Back on the evening of May 19, 1962, I opened the front door of my home in McCool. There, standing on the front porch, was my first date with a “guy” named Bob from Fairmont. First-date jitters, he came in and sat on the edge of the sofa as my mom was not so subtly “checking” this “guy” out firing one question after another; how old are you, how many brothers and sisters, etc., etc., etc.
One of my favorite Christmas songs is “I’ll Be Home for Christmas.” It was especially poignant the year I was on the farm with 50 inches of snow in my driveway, two babies in diapers and a husband in Vietnam.
Those older than 50 know what I am talking about when I say time is going by faster and faster. It is hard to remember what I had for breakfast some days much less, “Did I even eat breakfast?
