Cats purr their way into owners' hearts

March 31, 2014

By: Lynda Hollenbeck

Mark Twain is credited with saying: "If man could be crossed with the cat, it would improve the man but deteriorate the cat."
The master storyteller/author/humorist is high on my list for many things, not the least of which is his admiration for the feline.
Cats have many attributes that I find intriguing, such as their curious nature. The adage "curiosity killed the cat" obviously has merit.
If you doubt this, throw a paper sack on the floor of a room where there are several cats and watch how many try to get inside it. It can turn into a competition in a hurry.

Political Pinocchios would be wise to zip their lips

My mother-in-law's philosophy was basically this: "If you can't say something good about somebody, don't say anything at all."
The worth of this concept becomes especially significant during political campaigns. It would be a giant step for mankind if all candidates were to embrace the thinking of the late Winnie Hollenbeck.
She truly practiced what she preached. Once when a ne'er-do-well died in her hometown, someone pondered what words of kindness might be said at his funeral.
Winnie offered this suggestion: "Well, he was the best whistler in town."

Put on the green and celebrate the best holiday of all

Remember when "doing one's colors" was the big thing?
Personally, I thought the concept was ridiculous. Who in her right mind would actually give money to somebody to drape a bunch of fabric in varying shades around her face and say "you're a spring" or "you're a summer"?
This would be followed by such commentary as "you can wear red (or blue or yellow or purple, etc.) because it's in your palette."
This color analysis was a huge thing for a while. I never got into it because I said I was capable of doing my colors myself with just me and my mirror.
