Is wall paper in yet?

This is a pic clipped from a magazine - 

 Living inside a gift wrapped package.  
(When the kids come to visit, it's a gift.)

Today I was meant to remember.

At the local hardware store you can buy most anything, as well as,  ship a package, eat popcorn, or pet the cat in the basket on the counter. 
The store cat is black with a a blotch of white under his chin. 
His name is Lightening.

I take pause and remember another Cat on the Coast, the one in the photo.  Black with a patch of white under his chin.  Fast.   Nothing  in the yard got past him. Not deer, coyote, fox, dog, cat, mouse or bat.  A fifteen year watch he had. Family pet,  but more than.   His name was Lightening.

Phonics Jewel

Short Cuts To Reading You Can Teach Your Child  Joan Beck


In the late sixties I ordered this booklet from the Chicago Tribune:  
Short Cuts to Reading You Can Teach Your Child.
Phonics.  I had a toddler.  
Comics.  I like cartoons.  Still do.  

Awesome teaching tool.
