Share Your World – May 20, 2019

Last week – no actually it’s been a couple of weeks ago now – I visited by daughter and brought home with me two of her cats – the one from Thailand, Nong, has become my lap buddy, and this morning is the first I’ve had in awhile where she is not taking up the keyboard space on my lap, so I think it’s time to share my world with Melanie and all of you – or those of you who care to read.

Is it better to suspect something (bad or hurtful) and not know or to have your worst fears confirmed by sure knowledge? I think it’s better to know – most of the time. It does depend on the situation – I don’t need to know if the woman across the street is saying snide things about me. Well, unless she’s repeating things I may have said in confidence, because in that case I’d want to know so I’d be able to confront her and then share no more with her. I guess that means it’s better to know. Period.

What makes you laugh aloud?   Crack up?   Laugh until your sides split?   When was the last time you had a great big belly laugh? It’s sad that this happens so rarely anymore, but when it does I’m usually with my kids and someone says or does something inane that strikes us as so very silly – then laughter comes and hangs on and on. Bliss.

Do you suppose Noah had woodpeckers in the ark?  If he did, where did he keep them?   Apologies to the Darwinians in the crowd…this is merely for fun, okay? Well of course he did. All of God’s creatures are equal, remember? Although my personal opinion is that some of them should not be – this applies to small, irritating creatures like mosquitoes, houseflies, etc.

Why is “Charlie” short for “Charles when they are the same number of letters? Ummm. There are a lot of things about our language that make no sense to me. This is one of them. Perhaps it’s supposed to be less a short cut and more a casual as opposed to formal thing?

What  happened in your world this past week that made you feel thankful, joyful or grateful? The Nong cat decided she could sit on my lap. The Shasta dog sniffed the Nong’s nose in friendship. I’ve had nearly daily text conversations with both Kat and Gep. The other cat, Queso, who is from Korea, makes me happy when he lets me get closer to him, although it’s never close enough for touching. He’s not a people cat apparently.

She is such a helper.

  1. Aw! ❤ Ziggy is like Nong, he wants to be in my lap if I'm at the computer desk. Otherwise he's content enough to just curl up within petting distance, but not on my lap per se. Did you know "queso" is "cheese' in Spanish? So you have a Nong kitty and a Cheese kitty…. hee hee. Thanks Carol for Sharing Your World!


    • Carol says:

      Yes, my daughter named him Queso because he’s cheese colored – orange and white. Her other orange and white cat who is also from Korea is named Goguma – which is pumpkin in Korean I’m told. Not sure what Nong Saio stands for in Thai. She has a Siamese personality and is a real story teller.

    Glad you have cats again! And that Shasta seems ok with the additions. It might be that Queso is just slower to adjust to change. Or you may be right, he’s not a people kitty. Bet he comes around though.

    On the first question I agree with you about wanting to know. I’d rather be aware then blindsided. I can see how your cats make you happy. They each add a little joy to your day, in their own ways, of course. Cuteness.

    I’m all for knowing. Not only because I like to know but because if I have suspicions, I will drive myself CRAZY trying to figure out whether or not they’re valid.

    I agree on the belly laughing. I’m sure one of my cats recently did something that cracked me up – but I can’t think of it.

    Sure to woodpeckers…it’s not like they’d destroy an arc in 40 days.

    Grateful: Seeing & LOVING Cirque Amaluna; parking at Cirque was only $4(!! it was $25 at Dodger Stadium) and there were tons of spaces near the entrance; I found I can still do the splits; my knee stopped hurting 24/7; both Adam and PCB are acting “normal” again; we got some rain; I finished studying for my latest final exam (which I hope to pass tomorrow); I got a bunch of health stuff checked at a LifeLine screening (results are 2 wks away); overall, I felt more good than bad.


  8. I’m jealous that you have a lap cat. For some reason, ours don’t care for laps.

    Nice to see more fur babies in your lap! I inherited two cats from our youngest when she moved back to Florida after a few months of regrouping her life. Bridget is the only one left but she and Cabo don’t exactly embrace each other in friendship! Noah had a lot of passengers on that ark I think could have been left behind! I haven’t belly laughed in……I can’t even remember the last time. Should probably remedy that soon. And, I’m grateful Entrepreneur was able to walk his baby girl down the aisle a couple weeks ago. 🙂 Hope your week is going well. xoxo

      I don’t think these will ever embrace one another either, but I’ll be happy with tolerance. Looking at your photos, I thought the same thing – happy that Entrepreneur was able to walk his daughter down the aisle. You girls give him a good reason to live.


I'd love to hear from you!
