Blog Pause coming in January (Must Read!)

News Flash:  There is going to be a blog pause in January.  All of the posts for December, except this one, were completed and scheduled in advance.  That was lucky.  My poor eyesight has taken a turn for the worse--much worse.  My computer has been adjusted to help me see it better.  Photographs are blurry, and text is blurry and difficult to read.  That is why I have not commented on any blog posts.  I have noticed a few stories about ill cats.  That is sad, especially around Christmas.  I hope they all get better, especially Buddy and Benny. 

Well, I did this post. Maybe I will not have to end this blog.  We shall see.   I used the blog editor half from memory!  Unless my three cats are all lying on their backs, I think the photograph is not upside down! 

I have some more fun blogs scheduled, plus some old drafts that I did not post for one reason or another,  I could use in the future.  If things get worse, I will have someone post the news for me.  Stay tuned.

Opie Loves Christmas Music

I decided to get out some of my old vinyl Christmas phonograph albums.  I have been listening to them as far back as the 60's.  I oiled up the old phonograph which had been sitting dormant almost all year long.  I pulled out one of my favorite albums: "A Festive Christmas" by Ivan Rebroff from the late 60's as I recall.  

Opie heard the music and decided to pay a visit, and see what was happening.

 This is very interesting, she thought.  Better climb up for a better view!  I will innocently pretend I do not notice it!

Ho Hum
There is something interesting down there!

Look at it go around!

I think it is time to pounce!

There are no more photos.  I quickly grabbed Opie, and took her out of the room.  There is a cover, shown in the picture on the right, which goes over the top of the record player, when not in use.  For those interested, the stereophonic system came from Radio Shack in the mid 1970's.  It is "Realistic".
