Time to say goodbye to the holidays for me – bah, humbug survives another season to rise like the phoenix for another new year. What’s ahead for 2022?
I started the New Year much like I’d ended the Old Year – with a morning walk through the neighborhood.
the sun rose in the east over a neighbor’s American flag –
somewhat reassuringly, I felt on both counts, given the anniversary of the January 6th insurrection in six days
America strong? America divided? Where to, America, in 2022? What next?
who’s this in front of Bully Cat’s crib?
Well, well, well. Something new to see on the first day of the New Year. A different cat sitting in the driveway of Bully Cat’s secret hiding place with the open door policy for him. Apparently Bully Cat has a Crib Cat Companion. Where to, what next for Bully Cat himself?
Bully Cat across the street from our house when I got home
Bully Cat up to his Old Tricks on the first day of 2022 – strolling past me as I walked up our driveway. Where to, BC – what next? Is there hope for redemption from your bullying behavior in the new year? Is there hope for redemption for everyone in the new year…
so where did that put Carport Kitty –
in a familiar hiding spot
but under Pretty’s truck in our driveway instead of Neighbor John’s
Where to, what next, Carport Kitty? Will you stay afraid of Bully Cat, or are you running a food scam with him? Only the New Year solves the mysteries.
Regardless, you have a place to call home
and a new favorite spot in the warmer weather –
keeping watch over yarn ball Pretty got you for Christmas
