How We Met

Red came to us in October of 2003. I started feeding him outside. He would usually run, but this particular time, he only went down to the bottom of the steps. I put food out for him and he came back up and started eating. I was able to pet him and we became friends. I sat out there with him for a long time and he just started purring and rubbing all over me and giving me headbonks. The next day we invited him in and he spent the night. He didn't go back outside until the following March. He was never afraid of the dogs and he just sort of moved in. He is the most loving of any kitty we have ever had the pleasure of sharing our home with. We took him to the vet a week later and had him vaccinated and neutered. At that time, we were told he was 5-7 years old, so we made him 6.
He developed a heart problem in Nov. '10, but we managed it with medication. Then his heart finally gave out. He was our baby and we miss him so much. We will love you forever, sweet boy!

Hi Angel Red, Moki, & Frosty!
Thank you for stopping by to visit on my crossing anniversary, always a sad day for mom. She will always remember how hard I fought, and I will always remember how hard she tried to help me win my battle. But it just wasn't to be. But the Great Spirit Cat sent my sister Autumn to help mom and me through the transition, and she is still with mom, being a little pest, but a much loved one!

We have brought you a special thank you basket filled with angel kisses and much love. Leaving a BIG thank you vote, too. Hope you are having a wonderful weekend!

Many happy memories
Angel Summer

good morning!
down to 25 last janet looked as she slept in till 3:30 although she kept waking up as she's so used to getting up most mornings at 2:30 and blogging by 3, but weekends she's decided for the most part to take off, but only blog to selected friends and you were one of them this morning! :) going to make 40 as we hit the mid 40s and janet only was wearing a mock turtleneck and heavy sweatshirt just right for walking and she's sticking to just the big block as when she goes to walk early wednesday morning it'll be even colder than this morning lower 20s and teens as well, but she's done the middle st. block when it's been this cold and walked the big block here at +12!!!:0 she and nat did the shopping as the errands were done the day before and they had to add one onto the trip yesterday as one thing he picked up to seal around the bathtub didn't work so had to get sure shot. can you believe janet picked a frozen turkey up for just .41??? she had a $7 off coupon from the other grocery store and used it at her store as they had frozen turkeys on sale for .79lb and she paid .41 after that coupon as the card price was $7.41, now that's a bargain!!! :) sandy,ab,haley,angels

bonfire sleepover/games tues/wed
you're so right about meeting our maker he picks and chooses your time and if medicine/doctors can save you well then it's been lengthened somewhat, but it'll come and sometimes you're never ready for when it does as it can come upon you like the snap of your fingers as it did to a next door neighbor she wasn't feeling good vomited in a downstairs bathroom and fell over and died just like that a brain anyrisim sorry can't spell. well we did have a lot done here this past weekend most of it was inside, although it felt warmer saturday as the sun was the brightest and it was more or less clear that day as it was yes-terday for sunrise as well as janet got pictures of it or was that sat or friday, well no matter, was pretty as was the sunset, but to many trees and such in the way to get a good picture! makes janet mad when she can't get a picture as the nearest spot which is good is 5 minute car ride or less just to do it! well she got 4 loads of wash done spread across both weekend days and then got long awaited snailmail letters done, christmas letter she had been putting off like the other letters, and one eletter all done yesterday afternoon! now how's that for production? sandy,ab,

it's
warmer out there than it's going to be for the rest of the day today as once the front is through...next one that is...we're gonna drop like a bomb and come tomorrow morning and monday mor-nings it's going to feel wind chills like the teens, but not actual temps 20s and 30s to start and then only around 40 and lower to upper 40s on monday, and mid 40s today. janet got a few new ornaments this week one at michaels and the other at pier one which already broke and nat mended with hot glue. then more came in the mail and the last of the books so janet has all her stuff she sent for here now or should have it. take care heard snow in knoxville and we know many down there don't have snow tires where you live we think. sandy,ab,haley,angels

oops we forgot to leave a blog! hoping it didn't get recorded, but might have as cc is still moving slow down the pages and seems to take forever, but heck can't boot it, at least we have it back and running after a week's vacation like janet was 2 weeks back or make that 3 now! she's already been outside again and it was the same temp and feeling as it was yesterday 50 and so nice! going to warm up later on and she's not going to wear thermal bottoms like you needed yesterday as a front went through and it was raw and cool! she did get a lot done outside on saturday, 3 wagon loads of weeds from the fence which looked horrible all summer and spring and now is done as well as the weeding in the herb garden and 2 loads of wash plus 2 walks. she did get in 2 walks and was online shopping around found some more icicle ornaments got those and found more, but is hesitant on getting them even though the price cut is huge $40 for some special ones originally cut to $19.99 at jcpenny only online as the stores carry other things. she's still got to check 3 other spots to see what they'll be carrying when they get things out in the weeks ahead. errand day as well today. sandy,ab,haley,angels

sleepover tuesday/games wednesday
it's getting colder as we speak and was 53 when janet got up and not likely to get out of the upper 40s to lower 50s as the day goes along. sweatshirt or light jacket weather janet calls it. she wants to either weed once she gets home from work as there's more than enough of that and also walk to get any of the other colors appearing before they disappear for good along her path. most of the colors are gone gotten washed out on thursday with all the rain and showers which moved on in yesterday afternoon and out again when the front moved on through. got showers both tues/fri and then a noreaster wed/thurs so temps will rise into the upper 50s and lower to mid 60s so that will help feel a bit warmer out there. things are gonna be pretty tight now that we found out that the new health insurance will only pick up most but not the $469 per month to the nursing home we will owe them so we're gonna have to cut back and looks like finding other methods to watch tv and phones, but stay with comcast only for internet which janet and nat both need. other things are gonna have to be cutback in payments for bills too all but heat, electricty, insurance for the house/car which is gonna hit bigtime as if they continue dad's insurance over $1,140 and if nat gets added to janet's policy her's will shoot up to over $2,800 or around that and she's not making enough to pay for it, so will have to look for as much $$$ as she can to pay for that once nat's got his license in the spring and she hopes he does pass his driving test too with a driving school as mommy said she wanted to help nat, but now the $$$ just won't be there and she's got $200 a month for things she wants and might have to give some of that up if she's gonna help nat and he will have to get a part time job somewhere which means janet's taxi service will be in effect once he hits 21 as he's got to get some other dental insurance as well. just a lot happening and christmas from now on lean for everybody! janet's still working on paying off her $1,000 to the garage and thinks she's gonna have to give them $200 if she can or more to get it down that much faster dur-ing the holiday period and will be once her car insurance is paid off in a few weeks. sandy,ab,haley,angels

janet sure had her work cut out after lunch/online stuff was done after she was home from work yesterday! she finished clean-ing out an edge along a neighbors property, moved a big brush pile she started last friday hoping nat would move it for her, but he said it was her project and she had to finish it, so she also tackled the grapevine which was messed up with wild black raspberry canes/bittersweet/burning bushes/goldenrod and weeds as well as cutting the vines back. all of which got done and now has just the long fence where it's got to be replaced next spring along her garden outside edge and then down on all 4's weeding inside the fence all before we have the end of the garden season. we got down to 37 when she left for work with a thick pea soup fog which didn't lift according to nat till around 9-9:30,but was already drying out when she got out of work and went out right after lunch/online stuff and her walk was done with. got into upper 60s to near 70 short sleeved weather and now conditions for this week have improved so not wet and to cool like they were last saying yesterday morning. now 70s most of this week and drier only showers thurs/fri which janet hopes is right as she wants to be able to long walk on wednesday morning her only day off. sandy,ab,haley,angels

sleepover tuesday/sports day wednesday
we actually made it to the upper 80s for 3 hours yesterday afternoon as janet saw it here and felt like it even in the shade it wasn't to cool but she stayed the course and sat out reading till 4:30 as she finished a book she started on friday.
we had pea soup frog with 57 and it was just setting in when janet took pepper out this morning at 2:45 as she got up at 2:30 taking her time getting going and getting this up as she went along. also opened up one window as it was 60 and half the night she had her fan blowing on her as it was a bit on the warm side last night so left it going till she got up for a pit stop around 1:45. slept through both times and then just woke up and decided not to go back to sleep just for a measly half hour. still no rain here either front came through if it did dry as it's clear above the frog clouds coming in. her garden really needs serious weeding but hasn't gotten done as she left some for the bunnies which still are getting in at spots and going after the foot long bean plants at the end of the garden so that's what they were going after rather than the other bean plants on the fences :) at that for sure! she's not bothered to water....shame on her yes, she knows she's bad, but she does it and mosquitoes come a biting and she hates that so doesn't water and other times just leaves it as they keep saying yes, rain or showers and as usual nothing! got a chance wednesday, saturday and again tuesday afternoon or night so are hoping they're right for a change. she'll believe it when it happens! sandy,ab,

♥ Thank you for Honoring our CHARR KNIGHT 10719 on her FOREVER SLEEP ANNIVERSARY of 6 years on 9/19 with your visits, votes and comforting words. With doing so, you have ALL made CHARR win her 5th COTD Badge, so Thank You on that as well!
Special Thank You goes to Boo Kitty #15485 & Momma Jane for the beautiful COTD Frame for my beautiful girl!

♥ Charr was such a sweetheart! We loved how she meowed with each meow she would move her head up and down like she was saying "Yes".

The picture of her laying on the kitty condo is when she was just a kitten. Her littermates Bahneetah 10641 and Ebbonny 10703 and Charr would all cuddle on top of that little condo together. I had a picture of them, but unable to find it. They were the first born litter to Baby 13286. This was the beginning of the Knight Family.

♥ When it was just the three of them, we used to travel and they went every where with us including camping. Since our family grew, we quit taking trips including day trips with the three.

♥ Thank you again for your love and friendship as I appreciate each and everyone of you!

happy autumn!
we'll say just that as it's not official till everybody is fast asleep except natty he's the night owl in this house! janet sat out for most of the afternoon yesterday seeing she walked twice after she got home and then again right after supper last night so had a relaxing day getting magazines/papers, and her book caught up on. not quite finishing the book, but never mind she'll bring it with her today seeing it's errand day as well as going to visit master but not till they've bought a new remote simplier for master to operate for his tv as he's the last stop. janet was going to do the wash which would've dried, but now that's put off till wednesday morning meaning no long distance walk, the middle st. 3 miles is more than enough for her and she can do that in 45 minutes or less so will be home to do that as well as the garden work seeing she'll get more stuff done out there or maybe just the big block with pepper, she'll decide when the time comes. she's got to get master's car to the garage after she's in from work unless she takes that to work with her instead tomorrow would make it much easier for her and then hopefully to get a ride home too after that. we did get up to the lower 80s yesterday and like summer super humid tropical out there and is transitioning to what we had friday colder highs now out of the lower 60s and it's 63 this morning too so won't be going much of anywhere sweatshirt weather for sure again! sandy,ab,haley,angels

we knew we could count on you being here as it'll be easier for a few of you so your parents or mom won't have to get up early to get you here for two different things going on. supposed to be colder by tomorrow morning, but nice this morning 50 exactly and clouding up! was supposed to rain by 7am, but something tells us it won't rain till a bit later and clear in time for the sleepover tonight in the garage as we're all set up and pre-pared for both of them. sandy,ab,haley,angels

rain????????
send some of it this way we can really use it as things are starting to really dry up after a sprinkles/spitting showers here and nothing more yesterday as most broke up before it even made it's way into the northeast! most stayed well to the south into the mid atlantic area. maybe just maybe we'll get some light rain at this time tomorrow, although much cooler only mid 60s to upper 60s this entire weekend, something the forecasters were originally calling for before the upped the temps to the lower 70s with cloudy or clear conditions. now we've got our paws/fingers crossed we'll get something tomorrow and again on tuesday! janet walked 4 miles two days ago and did it again and added on a half mile to that the middle west st. block this time and got a few more pictures to add to what she took on wednesday morning. next time depends on what's going on the entire middle st. block again something she did early on last spring, or maybe the upper part of west street before it becomes south plea-sant at the bridge dividing south amherst from amherst itself. got a sun/cloud mix here now as it was clear and 52 when janet walked and the jacket she wore came off pretty early on even though her arms were cold she was really warm!
she and nat did all the errands/bank run and grocery shopping yesterday and also she bought 2 things online new garden boots for work as the ones she has there ripped so she's gonna send them back as soon as the new ones come and then she's got to get new rain pants from the farmers supply for work once it's to cold and she's getting wet from leaks or rips in the seams or cuts she's made with the knife from cut-ting a lettuce or veggie ends. well enough of that janet did pick things in the garden and the limas still rule 10-1 and string beans are now gearing down as hardly anything but small handfuls are coming in now, tomatoes are still forming or coming in off of what's left from the ones she bought and planted in late may/early june, while the ones from seed are just forming new tomatoes....kind of doubt they'll come in before we get our first frost likely before the end of this month as temps are gonna get cold this weekend lower 40s and that's a first as it's really early this time out! sandy,ab,

water sports day wednesday!
just thought we'd let ya know that the last water sports for this summer is wednesday this week and we start up regular sports days next week with sleepovers coming soon through mid october. janet picked a lot of lima beans yesterday enough to make an almost full basket of them so she spent the entire afternoon shelling them and now they're ready to freeze one bag as it takes a lot of them for sure! she'll leave the garden work till wednesday after she's in from her long early morning walk as she did pull some tomatoes and 2 rows of corn which were done for the year as well and left one row which is a combo of eating and making flour corn not many on those as she picked a few of them and left what there was as there's not much of those. won't be long before the garden becomes even more sparce as the leeks will come in soon and she'll be spending her time making leek and potato soup on her only one day off from work a wednesday starting next week. sandy,ab,haley,angels

janet thought
her afternoon was gonna be not full? well turned out that after lunch she had to take nat up to the bank and back as he got a check from his godparents in georgia for this month and $99 is already spent on an access code for one of his courses at the college online like he's been doing the past 2 years. the rest she finally got outside to read when she had done the anglo-american shepherd's pie and that'll be for supper tonight as leftovers and then she's planning pizza for tomorrow night. we can't have anymore cookouts here the grill from last year rusted out on the bottom on 2 sides that's how cheap the chinese make things not to last more than 1-2 years and she patched her work clogs with gorilla glue seeing half of one which had just been worn 1 week was already coming off and they were the replace-ments for the ones which lasted longer than these new ones! no more of those types of things she'll look else-where for skid proff lightweight work shoes for work. sandy,ab,haley,angels

water sports day today!
we know you won't be here again, but that's okay, it's more important that your parents get those errands done in cookeville today! janet and nat won't be out right after lunch as janet hoped since nat's gotta see their cpa about taxes for this year and if he's got it well pay a quartly amount so he won't have to pay in as much seeing he's brought in a lot more than is allowed! janet did make a run to the library with him to copy off some things and all others he put on a zip drive to give to the cpa to go over things as they'll be there for a little while this afternoon more than likely, something janet hoped not to have to do, but a necessary evil! they'll use her car seeing master has to pay for the gas for doing their errands not hers! that way no errands she hopes combined with grocery shopping as it just takes to long that way. janet was going to sit outside, but instead sat inside not reading but playing her poke-mon game as she finally got interested in it, only to have nat take it away to get something straightened out he had done to get her to the point where she was and put her to the next point where she needs to be too. hit 90 only for the 6th time this year/summer yesterday and another chance to do it depending on the cloud cover to-day seeing isloated boomers which likely will hit seeing things need watering and are dying in her garden from not being watered. sandy,ab,haley,angels

jaent's got the afternoons off and no errands to run as she knows of unless something comes up today, then they'll be out running the usual ones tomorrow after she's in from work. she's hoping too that master's car will be ready as promised in the next few days, but again it might still be a bit to early as they might not have gotten the new hood to fit where the older one was! who knows???? we'll find out when they call! yesterday was a bit warmer as the sun broke through broken clouds and didn't stay out for any length of time, but janet and nat walked twice together and seeing now as it bothers pepper to walk the blocks janet won't have to take her along just up or down the street till she does her thing as janet says! gonna have more sun than clouds last janet heard today, but again might be a repeat of yesterday which wasn't to bad. wind changes coming again too as janet was blowing her nose a lot due to sinus and allergies. she's working 6 straight due to the stewed nuts moving in as their big move in weekend is this one and it's "christmas" for her store more or less. sandy,ab,haley,angels

water sports day today!
despite the on/off again showers and light rain. most of the worst is supposed to stay to the south and east today and tonight the north of us, so keeping paws crossed it'll be just as it's being predicted. janet squeezed in a walk between showers this morning and has been blogging since she got up after 6 this morning. she and nat found some good bargains yesterday getting a pair of birkkies for only $49 as they're usually into the hundreds, a roasting chicken for $5, votive candles 50% off the marked price as well as some ornaments for as little as $2 seeing the lady considered janet a valued customer coming down almost once a year late in the summer months. sandy,ab,haley,angels

water sports day today!
hoping we'll see you here today if you're parents aren't to busy to get you here and back for a quick visit. even in spirit is something that counts! had a boomer late last night which put on quite the show just to the east of us and likely gave us some rain as janet found things quite damp this morning in the east window as she checked it when she did pit stops last night and nothing was dry, so must've had another downpour between the times she was asleep and she got up for good at 6 this morning later than he had planned, but she's been wiped out lately and now is getting caught up on some sleep...
finally she says! with the mornings starting to close in she can get out a bit later at times which with the traffic bothers her, but she for the most part ignores it all. clouds at the upper levels are still out of the southwest and lower northwest meaning the cool front came through ealier than planned, so today now is sup-posed to be dry and nice, although tomorrow unsettled with boomers and the like with an upper air low moving in right after the front as it's now clearing out there.
janet's already got some plans for a little cooking when she's on vacation next week, some chicken or turkey noodle soup which she's made before and won't do it till next week when she's got the time as she's got some supplies now, but needs more chicken/turkey stock as well as noodles and thinly sliced chicken or turkey, but has the other stuff to make. she picked things from 2 gardens in the heat near 90 yesterday as she knew it was going to be to wet and buggy...how right she was as she got bugged when walking down the street with pepper as well as some around the big block...so that's why no longer walk, but still might do that if it's not to hot in the sun which in any case will be hot! she picked squash/cukes/beans in the neighbors garden and the first 3 cherry tomatoes, cukes and beans from her garden so she'll pick again on friday after she's in from work as saturday is shopping morning. nat's shrink tomorrow afternoon although he wants to go shopping after that tomorrow, janet says no as her store is giving out 10% off of total you pay on sat as it's always 5% off and no more. sandy,ab,haley,angels

♥ Thank you for coming over to Honor my sweet girl with your loving visits on VELVET'S Forever Sleep Anniversary of 2 years. I know some of you remember her on CC and then some were just getting to know her.

♥ As I have mentioned in the past about VELVET holding a grudge against dad Ron for two years prior to her Forever Sleep and up to the end of her life. He mistaken VELVET thinking it was our inside boy, Ebbonny 10703 as he was the big escapee which is what happened one day in the back. Dad Ron seen Ebbonny so he grabbed him by his tail.... well that was a mistake and a lesson never forgotten as it was actually VELVET he had and she laid into his arm with her claws in him and her teeth in his hand. He realized then that it was not Ebbonny! To this day, I still give Ron a bad time as we laugh about it!

♥ VELVET and I began our relationship after her twin littermate sister Sayble was killed by the neighbors' dog. Before that, VELVET didn't want anything to do with me plus she was still feral. She loved it when I was in the back yard as she would follow me to the back of the property then I would pick her up to carry her back to the back patio. One of her favorite sleeping places was in the Log House, as you can see in her picture gallery.

wishing one and all
a very happy july 4th from all of us here! going to be rainy for the most part thanks to hurricane arthur coming up along an incoming cool front which will sweep it out to sea and are hoping it's nice in time for suppertime pic-nics and fireworks, but many have either moved celebrat-ions till this or next weekend or cancelled them entirely.
got some news for ya, master won't be coming home again, as he needs constant care/help and that's something we can't give or afford a fulltime live in caregiver, so he's happy where he is and will get the care/attention he'll need so will be in rehab till a room is ready at the nursing home. got a lot of things to figure out, but a lawyer has been hired and janet/nat aren't invol-ved with any of it between her two sisters, yipee, mean-ing we can carry on here the way we have been the past 2 months. janet/nat see him twice a week and nat has to cut his hair with his clippers which don't work to well, but at least do the job! have to run, almost breakfast time for janet then leaving for work. sandy,ab,haley, angels

Happy Sunday, EveryKitty!
I've decided to take you on one last trip as your Queen of June. We'll leave bright and early in the morning, as there's lots to see. The royal helicopters will be ready and waiting for passengers. If you have enough energy at the end of your adventure, there will be a royal banquet in the castle hall. Of course, all are welcome, even if you decide not to go with us in the morning. The royal chefs are preparing a grand buffet with food fit for kings and queens and you are all invited. Here are just some of what you'll see, tomorrow:

Just minutes from downtown Chattanooga, TN, Lookout Mountain offers the perfect activities for an out of the ordinary experience as well as amazing natural beauty.

Rock City has a breathtaking hundred foot waterfall that cascades down the mountain, and the famous Swing-A-Long bridge that spans nearly 200 feet. This self guided tour along the brow of Lookout Mountain gives visitors a birds eye view from high atop Lookout Mountain. Some of Rock City's other features include the climbing wall at Lover’s Leap where you can “See Seven States,” the birds of prey shows, Big Rock Grill and the Fairyland Caverns.

With its unbelievably steep grade of nearly 73%, the Incline Railway is touted as the world's steepest passenger railway. The thrill of riding “America’s Most Amazing Mile” has delighted guests for over a century. Once you reach the summit, be sure to head to the Lookout Mountain Station, where you'll be able to enjoy views from the highest overlook at the mountain! Two stations offer gift shops, candy stores, a snack bar, arcade, and more.

Visit Ruby Falls and see America’s deepest commercial cave and the highest, most-visited underground waterfall. Enjoy a guided tour through this fascinating attraction with its 145-foot waterfall, and millions of natural geological formations. At the tour's conclusion see the panoramic view from the Lookout Mountain Tower, enjoy the newly renovated gift shops, and relax on the mountainside deck.

The pictures are 1, Hundred Foot Waterfall, 2, Swing-A-Long Bridge, 3, Lover's Leap (See 7 States), 4&5, The Incline Railway, 6, Ruby Falls Cave and 7 is Ruby Falls.

You are all invited to the castle chapel to pray for all those who are in need, tonight. We want to add Q. Felicity and Mom Sandy. It's heartbreaking to have a furbaby diagnosed with FeLV. We pray that God will work his miracles in all of the lives of the afflicted, whether animal or hooman.

Pounce by Angel Wendy's page #6497 and leave her a vote so she can become our queen for July.

Here's our daily vote for our wonderful CMR team. They are so faithful in bringing us the news. What would we do without them? Thank you so very much!

I hope you all have a wonderful evening and I wish you all sweet dreams. Take care and I love ya!

Lots of kitty kisses, hugs and purrs,
Queen Duchess

Good Morning, All!
First of all, I'd like to thank everyone for their prayers for my furbrother, Oleo. The one who had the growth in his ear. Mom and Dad took him to have his stitches removed this morning and they said he was a fabulous patient. At first, they thought they may have to sedate him, cuz the stitches were so deep in his ear. But they didn't have to! To look at him, you'd never know there was ever anything wrong with it. Also, my furbrother, BC (Brat Cat) came home and Mom found him lying on the front porch railing, this morning. He came in, ate and promptly went to sleep. First on top of the entertainment cabinet and now in Mom's chair. He's been asleep ever since, 5 hours, so far! Bet he doesn't do that, again!...MOL!

Well, here we are on a trip to one last state park in our great state of Tennessee. I hope you all enjoy this one, especially if you like to hike, or go boating! Me, I'm gonna sit in the observation tower and take it all in from there! This one is the Edgar Evins State Park.

The Caney Fork flows down from its source atop the Cumberland Plateau and winds its way northwestward across the Eastern Highland Rim before emptying into the Cumberland River near Carthage, Tennessee. Center Hill Dam, located approximately 26.6 miles (42.8 km) above the mouth of the Caney Fork, has created a reservoir that spans a 68-mile (109 km) stretch of the river between the dam and the Great Falls Dam at Rock Island State Park in adjacent Warren County. Edgar Evins State Park covers the northeast shore of the reservoir immediately upstream from Center Hill Dam.

The park is situated amidst rolling hills ("knobs") that comprise part of the geological boundary between the Eastern Highland Rim and the Central Basin. These hills are typically underlain by Mississippian period limestone, the erosion of which has created karst-like formations throughout the Center Hill Basin. Outcroppings of this limestone are visible along the cliffs overlooking the lake.

Most of Edgar Evins State Park is coated in a second-growth hardwood forest typical of the Eastern Highland Rim. Common tree species include the tuliptree, or tulip poplar (which is our TN state tree), white basswood, sugar maple, white ash, and various species of oak and hickory.

The earliest Euro-American settlers in the DeKalb area arrived in the late 1790s and established the town of Liberty just west of the modern park. Over the years, several families settled in the hollows and valleys of what is now Edgar Evins State Park and adjacent lands that would eventually be inundated by Center Hill Lake. One such settler, Alexander Dunham (1826–1878), whose family arrived in the area in the 1830s, is buried on a hill within the park that overlooks Center Hill Lake. Dunham's son lived near the present site of Center Hill Dam.

Edgar Evins State Park maintains a 300-slip marina and full service dock. Various types of watercraft may be rented at the marina. Lodging areas include a 34-cabin lodging complex and a campground with both modern and primitive campsites.

Hiking trails maintained by the park include the 2-mile (3.2 km) Highland Rim Trail, which loops down, around, and back up through a hillside forest characteristic of the Eastern Highland Rim, and the Dunham Cemetery Trail, a short trail that ascends to a small cemetery where former resident Alexander Dunham and two of his children are buried (as of 2008, the trail was slated for expansion). The Millennium Trail consists of a 2.2-mile (3.5 km) loop that descends to the shores of Center Hill Lake and passes several pre-1940s homesteads (most of the ruins consist of rockwall-fences) before looping back into the forest. The Merritt Ridge Trail, a 5-mile (8.0 km) extension of the Millennium Trail, traverses Merritt Ridge, a steep ridge that became a peninsula with the reservoir's creation.

The Friends of Edgar Evins State Park was organized in 2003 to support park preservation efforts. The group conducts several annual tours of the park's flora, lake, and waterfalls.

Pictures are: 1, Center Hill Dam, 2, Highland Rim Trail, 3, Center Hill Lake, 4, Durham Cemetery and 5, Edgar Evins Office and Observation Tower.

Again, we are joining the prayer circle to pray for all those who are suffering and in need at this time. God knows who you are and what your problems are. He will help heal and comfort you according to his will.

There are only 3 more voting days, so please, go by Angel Wendy's page and leave her a vote for your ACOTM. We know she's gonna make a great queen!

CMR, here is your daily vote. We thank you and appreciate all you do for all of us. You're pawsome!

And I appreciate and love all of you who have come by my page with your blogs, votes, goodies and prayers. You are wonderful! Hope you all have a great day. Take care.

Hello, Dear Furiends!
Well, we didn't get this posted this morning like we intended. Mom got back from her PT session and had to run a bunch of errands to pay some local bills. Then she got a call from my auntie and they wanted to know if Mom wanted to meet them for lunch. Of course, Mom said yes to that instead of helping me! By the time she got home, she got a phone call and it was from the new people taking over the bookkeeping at the mobile home park next door. The one that Mom had been doing it for. She's glad that's over. Anyway, she had to deal with that. Then since her dinner was gonna take awhile to get together to cook, she had to do that! Now, she's finally seeing to my more important work! So, cuz we didn't get this out early enough, I guess we'll be having to take this trip, tomorrow. We are going to Nashville, TN to check our some of the attractions there. I hope you find them interesting. You can take in one or all of them. Mom will bring us more in a day or two.

1. Step back in time and discover the charms of Belle Meade's Greek Revival mansion and idyllic grounds. Once a 5,400-acre thoroughbred horse farm, today's Belle Meade Plantation is a 30-acre historic site that features guided tours of its 1853 Greek Revival mansion. On this 45-minute tour, a guide decked out in Victorian-era finery recounts stories of how the Harding and Jackson families lived on the property for four generations, building what was once just a log cabin and 250 acres into a booming horse nursery that became a gemstone of historic Nashville. As you round through the estate, see the horse nursery where the pedigrees of such racing legends as Secretariat, Seabiscuit, and Smarty Jones began! In addition to its Greek Revival mansion, you might be interested in these other items:
8 other outbuildings—including the original 1890s carriage house and stables, as well as the original 1790s log cabin
The plantation's large antique carriage collection
Belle Meade Museum Store and Belle Meade Lunch Restaurant--Picture #1 on my page.

2. Located in Nashville, the heart of country music, the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum riffs on more than a half century of legendary characters, lively stories, and soulful tunes.
Whether you like bluegrass, Cajun, rockabilly, or honky tonk, this museum offers a medley of exhibitions and displays exploring country music’s past and present. On your self-guided tour, admire memorabilia including lyric sheets, photographs, original recordings, and archival video. The museum’s interactive exhibits; films featuring today’s top country names; and professional-songwriter sessions all give you a warm welcome to “Music City.”
Take the Studio B tour to get an up-close look at the historic site where the Everly Brothers, Dolly Parton, and Elvis Presley have all worked their magic.--Picture #2 on my page.

3. Step aboard the General Jackson Showboat and experience a spectacular cruise down the Cumberland River on one of the largest and grandest paddlewheel riverboats in the country. Enjoy dinner or lunch and live entertainment during this scenic cruise down the Cumberland River.
The “All Aboard” lunch cruise offers a family-style lunch as you enjoy a rousing country/comedy variety show for a jaw-droppin’ good time with a Gaylord Opryland favorite, Steve Hall and the Shotgun Red Show. Enjoy the antics of this hilarious duo as they bring one of the most animated and entertainingly interactive shows to ever cruise the Cumberland—“It’s not a great puppet show. It’s a great show with a puppet!” Or you can try the spectacular evening cruise down the Cumberland River enjoying a scrumptious dinner prepared by top chefs all while you sit back and enjoy a production of "Country Music USA” in the Victorian Dinner Theatre. Your musical journey begins with the songs of Grand Ole Opry icons like Hank Williams and Patsy Cline and ends with hits of today’s country music stars like Carrie Underwood. Celebrate the music that made Nashville the “Music City” on this memorable, not-to-be-missed cruise.--Picture #3 on my page.

Don't forget to go by Angel Wendy's page sometime today and paw her a vote for her ACOTM, so she can become our angel queen for July!

We are contuing our prayers in the prayer circle for all those in need, especially those listed on the CMR list. We pray for all the others that are having difficulties at this time that may not be listed. And all the homeless animals and hoomans, too! Thanks for all your prayers and well wishes for my furbrother, Oleo. He's doing great and has even cleaned his own ear! He wouldn't let Mom touch it, but he's doing a wonderful job all by himself.

Good Afternoon, Dear Furiends!
First of all, I would like to ask prayers for my furbrother, Oleo. He is having surgery today to remove a growth in his left ear. He keeps scraching it and making it bleed, so Mom and Dad made the decision to have it removed. Thankfully, it's not cancerous! But they will have to make a notch in the ear to remove all of it, so it won't grow back. Thank you much! You can see him in a colage picture on Angel Red's page, 198785. Oleo is the bottom right.

At the beginning of my catpaign, I spend a lot of time telling you about Sgt. Alvin C. York. Well, I thought you might like to see the place where he lived which is now a state park. So, here's some info on that. This park is about 45 miles north of where we live. Mom and Dad have been there.

Sergeant Alvin C. York Historic Park is located nine miles north of Jamestown and pays tribute to Sgt. Alvin C. York, one of the most decorated soldiers of World War I. The park contains the farm and gristmill once owned by York who lived in the Pall Mall area for most of his life. Along with the millhouse and milldam, the park includes York’s two-story house, York’s general store and post office, the Wolf River Cemetery, the Wolf River Methodist Church, the York Bible Institute, an M247 Sergeant York tank and various picnic facilities.

An M247 "Sergeant York," a type of self-propelled anti-aircraft tank developed for the U.S. Army in the 1970s and is on display near the York house. A swing bridge built by AmeriCorps*NCCC in 2000 crosses the Wolf River along the park's walking trail, connecting the US-127 and Wolf River Loop sections of the park.The park has set up a small "moonshine still" (currently consisting of two copper barrels) near the York Mill. As a historic park, the park offers tours and many opportunities to view historic items for York’s life.

The Wolf River provides decent bank fishing for bass, catfish and bream and is stocked with trout. A trout stamp is required.

Pictures are as follows: 1, York's House, 2, Gristmill, 3, Swinging Bridge and 4, the M247 Sgt. York Tank

We've come to join paws in the prayers circle for all those who are having difficulties at this time.

We're on our way over to Angel Wendy's page to pounce on her votey button, so she can become our Angel Queen of July! Hope you do the same!

Here is our daily vote for our great CMR team! Thanks for everything you do! Love ya!

Thanks to everyone who has come by my page to leave votes, blogs, goodies and love. I love all of you, too! Take care and have a wonderful day!

Happy Father's Day
to all you DadCats out there! And to Daddies, everywhere! I hope you find this interesting and enjoy the little poem.

The tradition of celebrating Father's Day as seen today originated in the last century. Though there are several people who are credited for furthering the cause of Father's Day, there is far greater acceptance for Ms Sonora Louise Smart Dodd's contribution. A doting daughter from Spokane, Washington, Ms Dodd is recognized as the Founder or Mother of the Father's Day Festival.

Inception of the Father's Day took place in Sonora's mind when she happened to hear a Mother's Day sermon in 1909. Sonora, who was 27 then, had begun to recognize the hardships her father must have gone through while bringing up his six children alone. When Sonora was 16, her mother had died during childbirth. Sonora's father a Civil War veteran by the name of William Jackson Smart raised six children including the newborn on his own. Sonora questioned that if there is a day to recognize mothers then why is not there a day to honor fathers?

Many people laughed and joked at Sonora's idea. But her will did not droop. She began a sincere campaign lobbying for the cause of Father's Day. Her hard work began to show signs of success when Spokane celebrated its first Father's Day on June 19, 1910 with the support of Spokane Ministerial Association and the local Young Men's Christian Association (YMCA). To pay tribute to her affectionate father, Sonora wished that Father's Day be celebrated on her father's birthday on June 5, but it so happened that there was not enough time for preparation and the day came to be celebrated on third Sunday in the month of June.

The noble idea of celebrating Father's Day became quite popular in US so much so that President Woodrow Wilson approved of the festival in 1916. President Calvin Coolidge too supported the idea but it was President Lyndon Johnson who signed a Presidential Proclamation declaring the third Sunday of June as Father's Day in 1966. Then in 1972, President Richard Nixon established a permanent national observance of Father's Day to be held on the third Sunday of June.



What Makes a Dad
God took the strength of a mountain,
The majesty of a tree,
The warmth of a summer sun,
The calm of a quiet sea,
The generous soul of nature,
The comforting arm of night,
The wisdom of the ages,
The power of the eagle's flight,
The joy of a morning in spring,
The faith of a mustard seed,
The patience of eternity,
The depth of a family need,
Then God combined these qualities,
When there was nothing more to add,
He knew His masterpiece was complete,
And so, He called it ... Dad

Hello, Dear Furiends!
I hope you are all good and rested up and ready to hit another state park. You can do lots of walking here! The longest trail is 5 miles, but the others are a lot smaller. There are also caves to explore and other things to do. So, just have fun! Our kitchen chefs have packed up the coolers with all sorts of picnic food and they have been loaded onto the helicopters. The helicopters are all ready for you.

Cedars of Lebanon State Park is situated in the eastern Central Basin approximately 15 miles (24 km) west of the eastern Highland Rim15 miles (24 km) east of Nashville and 20 miles (32 km) north of Murfreesboro. U.S. Route 231, which runs north-to-south splits the state forest into eastern and western sections. The state park (i.e.the developed area) is located in the eastern section along Cedar Forest Road. The western section consists of an undeveloped state forest. 1043 acres (422 ha) of the western section has been classified as a state natural area.

Like most karst areas, Cedars of Lebanon State Forest is drained in large part by underground streams. The water in the forest probably ends up in nearby streams, such as Hurricane Creek. These streams empty into the Stones River's J. Percy Priest Lake impoundment, which is located just a few miles to the west.

Cedars of Lebanon State Park has 117 campsites, 11 picnic shelters, a swimming pool, 8 miles (13 km) of hiking trails, a group lodge and a meeting hall. A small museum, the Merritt Nature Center, displays some of the forest's natural features. The park also maintains a disc golf course.

The park's eight miles (13 km) of hiking trails range in size from 0.5 to 5 miles (0.8 to 8 km). The 0.5-mile (0.8 km) Cedar Glades Trail, which begins at the park visitor center, is a self-guided interpretive trail that crosses several cedar glade habitats characteristic of glades found in the eastern basin. The 2-mile (3.2 km) Cedar Forest Trail, which begins near the junction of Cedar Forest Road and WPA Roadloops through a mixed oak-hickory and red cedar forest and passes several sizeable sinkholes and blockfields. The 0.5-mile (0.8 km) Dixon Merritt Trail begins behind the Merritt Nature Center and provides access to Jackson Cave. The 0.5-mile (0.8 km) Limestone Sinks Trail is another self-guided trail that passes several large limestone sinks. The 5-mile (8 km) Hidden Springs Trail, which starts near the picnic area, loops through multiple terrain types characteristic of the state forest, including a large limestone sink and associated dry streambed, several substantial cedar glades and a dense stand of mixed red cedar and oak-hickory forest.

Jackson Cave is one of 18 known caves located in the state forest and the immediate vicinity. The cave's entrance is 30 feet (9.1 m) wide and 4 feet (1.2 m) high, and the cave corridor has an average width of 12 feet (3.7 m) and an average height of 6 feet (1.8 m). The cave extends approximately 1000 feet (300 m) from its entrance to a large pool of water.

Good Afternoon, Dear Furiends!
Mom is feeling much better, now, so I've decided to take you all to another of our state parks. This one is called Long Hunter and it's full of Native American history. I hope you enjoy it. You may even be able to take part in one of the powwows!

The 2,600 acres which make up this area became a state park in 1974 and has four sections, Couchville, Baker’s Grove, Bryant Grove and Sellars Farm. Significant for both its natural and historic aspects, Long Hunter State Park is a popular spot on J. Percy Priest Lake for picnicking, swimming, hiking, backpacking, boating, fishing, nature photography and wildlife observation. Several hiking trails at Long Hunter provide pleasant walking experiences, including the popular two-mile Lake Trail around Couchville Lake. It is also home to the Jason Allen Arboretum Trail that weaves its way through the first certified arboretum in a Tennessee State Park. Thousands of years before the arrival of white settlers, this area, called the Middle Hunting Ground, was contested by Cherokee, Creek and Shawnee Indians. In the 1760s, just after the French and Indian War, English, French, Irish and German pioneers were the first Europeans to settle the territory west of the Appalachian Mountains. Daniel Boone of Kentucky was the most famous of these “long hunters,” who came here on yearlong expeditions to hunt and trade with the Cherokee. As many as 30 men would operate out of fortified stations. Couchville, Baker's Grove, Bryant Grove and Sellars Farm units are named for distinct farming communities, most now inundated by the reservoir formed when Stones River was impounded to create J. Percy Priest Lake. Hikers in the park can still see the stone remains of those early homesteads. Sellars Farm is of particular interest to historians, as it contains remnants of a Native American community from prehistoric time, abandoned by the time white settlers arrived.

We found lots of pictures on this park and they are: 1, J. Percy Priest Lake, 2, Canoeing, 3, Native American TeePees, 4, A Native American dancer, 5, Some Wildlife and 6, A Beautiful Sunset.

So, there you have it for today. I hope you all enjoyed it.

I hope everyone will go by Angel Wendy's page and paw her a vote so she can become our queen for July.

We are all joining in the prayer circle to pray for all those who have special needs at this time. All kitties, doggies. hoomans and any other animals will be in our prayers today!

Good Morning, EveryKitty!
I do hope you are all up and ready or almost ready to go. We are in for a long day, so we need to leave very early. I hope you all enjoy yourselves where we're going today. I've sent catbucks ahead of us, so all your food is paid for. You just pick anywhere you want to eat, all day long and it will be provided with a smile.

Are you all familiar with Dolly Parton? I hope so, cuz today, we are heading for East Tennessee to DOLLYWOOD!!

Dolly Parton invested much of her earnings into business ventures in her native East Tennessee, notably Pigeon Forge. She is a co-owner of The Dollywood Company, which operates the theme park Dollywood (a former Silver Dollar City), a dinner theatre, Dolly Parton's Dixie Stampede, and the waterpark Dollywood's Splash Country, all in Pigeon Forge. Dollywood is ranked as the 24th-most-popular theme park in the United States, with some three million visitors per year. On January 19, 2012, Parton's 66th birthday, Gaylord Opryland and Dollywood announced plans to open a $50 million water and snow park, a fun and family-friendly travel destination that's open each month of the year in Nashville.

Here are just a few of the attractions you'll be able to experience while you visit the park. We'll spend 2 days here, cuz there is no way that you'll be able to do it all in one day! Probably not even in 2, but that's all the time we have. So, I've reserved a bunch of cabins that are just 10 minutes from Dollywood and I'm sure you'll find the accomodations quite satisfactory. The shuttle will take us all to and from the park.

Dollywood Express - The authentic 110-ton coal-fired steam engine takes you on a breathtaking five-mile journey through the foothills of the Great Smoky Mountains where you'll enjoy pastoral scenery and some of the most beautiful views that nature has to offer.

At this place, you'll enjoy the same breathtaking moments that daring stunt pilots of the1920s might have experienced as they zoomed over the fields of nearby farms.

What happens when a mighty twister sweeps through an old Tennessee Mining Company? Locals say the swirling winds twisted ore into what we now call the Tennessee Tornado.

If you want to experience one of the Great Smoky Mountain's most popular sports, then Dollywood's Smoky Mountain River Rampage is a must!

The roots of Southern gospel music run very deep in the Smoky Mountains of East Tennessee, so it's only fitting that the Southern Gospel Museum and Hall of Fame make its home at Dollywood.

Step inside this one-room country church where the simple wooden pews and hardwood floors echo with the sounds of families and neighbors gathering for Sunday morning worship. We can have our prayers circle here, today.
