Tags, You're It!

New collar. New tags. Good to go.
(Still won't say what he did with his old
collar and tags.)

Where Has Tizzy's Collar Gone?

That red strap beneath his right whiskers.
Lost with tags and bell.
Doffed deliberately. 
Perhaps while wrestling.
Sometime over the weekend. 
Tizzy knows where it is, but won't say.
Cat's got his tongue.

Another Mother

Click on image to enlarge
Mother's Day 2011: Mrs. Robin atop her nest cleverly 
built under the eave of my Sister and Brother in law's 
house. Keeping her babies dry and cozy while Dad 
supplies the bugs and worms.

Happy Mother's Day, Mom

I share my Mom with my sister 
and two brothers. She's been my 
Mom longer because I got
here first. Not that it really matters. 
She always tells us she loves all 
her children equally.

Mom lost her sight completely a 
number of years ago. 
Listening to my war stories, she takes 
my side but can't see my art work or 
how gray her 4 children have become. 

Memorizing all her numbers, credit cards, 
phone numbers, anniversaries, birthdays, 
medical appointments. Mom carries on 
with few complaints and lots of laughter. 

Happy Mother's Day, Mom!

May, Silly

May, my birth month and the sudden inspiration 
to sign my Mom's copy of THE STORY
OF THE PILGRIMS (which I illustrated).
For Mom with love from 
Your Own "May Flower" 
(well, SHE laughed!)
