Boy, that's sad about Dick Clark's passing. I know there are a few of my followers who, like me, remember watching American Bandstand on Saturdays. We used to make fun of some of the kids and their dancing. And that seemed to be the gauge for rating a song: Could you dance to it? Dick Clark was an iconic American figure; a member of a by-gone era.
I received my gift from Kim's giveaway over at the blog, The Wiccan Life It's a beautiful double wicked candle, a lovely shade of blue, with a fragrance called, appropriately, Spring Rain, from Blue Mountain candles. It arrived safely, and not only did I receive a lovely gift, I had about 10 minutes of fun popping the bubble wrap that kept the candle safe. Thanks a bunch, Kim. You are the best!
Okay, confession time. My list of blogs that I follow has been increasing over the last month or so, as I add blogs of a purrticular nature. Cats. I have become obsessed with cat blogs. I am smitten with kittens. I treat felinity like divinity. I kowtow to the meow-meow! It's true. The reason, mainly, is that we don't have a cat in the house now. Ever since our MacKenzie-cat passed away in August 2010, we have been without cat companionship, and I am really really missing this presence. Unfortunately, I don't think we can get another cat (or two) because of our dog, Gwennie. She hated MacKenzie with a passion. For some odd reason she blamed him for the telephone ringing. Everytime the phone rang she would bark and chase him. Or when the doorbell rang. He usually jumped up high, or scooted down through his catdoor to the basement. MacKenzie was with us before we rescued Gwennie, so he was already established as a resident. Bringing new cats or kittens in, especially as she is an older dog now, doesn't seem like a good idea. I would hate for them to be terrorized by the barking and chasing everytime the phone rings. Sigh, and sigh again. So I read the cat blogs. You can see them on my blog list. Wonderful blogs.

That is enough rambling for one blog post. Have a super Friday!
