Two cats a robin and a slug

Blog Posted:3/19/2020 10:52:00 AM

two cats a robin and  slug sat idly by my doorstep.  One of the cats held an"EVER TRUMP" sign.   The robin covered its head with its wings.  The other cat hissed wildly.  The slug took off running. In Vermont the millennials fled to their parents basements.  A passing pigeon spotted the cats.

John, it is a time for families to gather together, kids from university or those who have been living on their own coming home to live in their parents basements for safety, some people hiding with their heads covered, refusing to hear what is happening, others hissing indignant, some standing firm not letting go of their political fight which seems meaningless at the moment, and vultures are soaring overhead ready to take advantage, it is a sad time in history _Constance

I am fortunate to have all of my family close by and heeding the warnings. It is somewhat disgusting that the political infighting continues.

Enjoyed your blog today, John. But one question - how exactly does a slug run?

Yes, and some in Florida may not even get a flight home. It is a worrisome situation for everyone. Take good care and stay healthy. Hugs, Catie :-)
