Today, I'm writing about the things I have been thinking about. The first item on my mind is this week I celebrated my sixty-seventh birthday. It's something I would rather not celebrate since it only means I am getting older. When I was young time passed so slowly, but when you get my age the time starts to fly by. Many of my friends and co-workers have died; some of them older than me and others were younger. Yes, it's time to start thinking about one's mortality at my age, and if it weren't for my birth date, I wouldn't give it a thought. After all, your age is just a number, and in my mind I'm still young and able to do all the things when I was thirty. Don't I wish? Smile.
The next thing on my mind is Dory, my tortoiseshell cat. Dory has been sick all week. We took her to the vet on Tuesday because she was throwing up. It had been going on for a couple of weeks, but I had thought it was because she ate fast and didn't chew her food good. She didn't throw up all the time, just a few times a week. The vet gave her a shot, Penicillin, and some hairball medicine. Last night, she started sneezing and coughing. This little girl loves to play, but she hasn't played for a couple of days. We took her to the vet again today. The vet took x-rays and found her stomach is very full, which apparently is unusual. We were told to cut back on her food and instead of giving her hard food to give her soft food. Since, she's never liked the soft food that wasn't an option. We aren't giving her as much hard food. Also, the vet put her on Amoxicillin, since we thought she might be allergic to Penicillin. That hasn't helped the sneezing and coughing, so we may need another trip to the vet on Monday. We love this little fur ball, and we want her well.
Has anyone been watching the Casey Anthony murder trial? I seem to have become addicted to this trial. I have known lots of different kinds of liars in my life, and some even very much like Casey. However, none of them ever murdered their children or anyone else. Not to say Casey murdered her daughter because at this time Casey's only alleged to have committed the crime.
Why am I so interested in this trial? The answer is multifaceted. The little girl, Caylee Anthony, was only two years old about to turn three. Who wouldn't want justice for the little cutie. I find the dysfunction of the Anthony family fascinating. When I was young, I wanted to be a lawyer, so this could be another reason for my attention to this trial. Am I studying the participants in the trial to use as characters in a book? That is always a possibility. To be honest, I think I have become involved in watching this case for the psychological reasons. I want to know what makes people do the things they do. Why are these people like they are?
These are just a few of my thoughts this past week. I want to thank those who visit my blog every week and those who are first time visitors. Have a wonderful June month, and I'll see you next Sunday.
