Portraits on a Laundry Basket / Universal Cat Law

Where is Opie? This is an effect of the Universal Cat Law, which was discovered by me after studying the work of Albert Einstein and Werner Heisenberg. In 1905 Albert Einstein published his famous equation: E = mc2. It was derived from experiments with his two cats named Proton and Electron conducted in 1904. In the equation, E = the energy of the cat; m = the mass of the cat; and c = the speed of the cat. Adapting the equation to larger systems came in the following year.

 In 1927, Heisenberg was developing his famous Uncertainty Principle. In simple terms, it states you can know the position of a cat, and you can know the speed of a cat, but you can never know both!

 Also playing a part is the "observer effect." What it says basically is that when you observe something, or try to measure something, you change the state of that something. For instance, you see the cat on the laundry basket. Using a camera as a measurement device, you raise it up to take a photograph. When you take the photograph, the cat is not in the photograph. Your attempt at measurement has changed the energy state of the cat! 

One day an incandescent light bulb appeared out of nowhere over my head and lit up. I discovered a universal cat law of physics. My equation is: n - 1 = p. n = the number of cats you own. (n > 1)  p = the number of cats in your photographs. The law states that it is impossible to get all of your cats in the same photograph. In my case, with n = 3, the number of cats in my photographs can only be 3 - 1 = 2. There are a few occasions when this law appears to be broken. I am still working to find the variables.

As to the question, "Where is Opie?", we cannot measure where she is, or measure how fast she is moving. We simply do not know at this moment. She is in the house somewhere.That is a certainty.

Next Post Feb 1 Thanks for encouraging words.  I am much better.

Christmas is over for Zeke


Time to climb into my tent, and go for a little nap!  I am so tired!  Christmas was very exciting and busy for me.

Zeke received a new tent from Santa Cat.  He sleeps in it upstairs.  


Only room for one in here!

Merry Christmas 2014 / Happy New Year



My father saved the holiday postcards he received when a child.  Once again, I post a few of his Christmas postcards:

From 1918, Smoking Santa wishing you a Merry Christmas!
1920
{"I have asked old Santa Claus to bring
      Because you are sweet and good,
  When he makes his Christmas visit,
  Everything you have hoped he would.") 

1922
1923
1925 Wishing you the best of Christmas Joys

 Especially for my German speaking friends:
Germania Kalender 1913


Three Kings (German Bible 1880's)
"And when they were come into the house, they saw the young child with Mary his mother, and fell down, and worshipped him: and when they had opened their treasures, they presented unto him gifts; gold, and frankincense, and myrrh"



Me Christmas 1953
     Happy innocent days above with the magic of Christmas.  I wanted the toy farm above all else. The barn above eventually ended up on the floor of the garage, unplayed with for many years, and rusted away in the dampness.  On the brighter side, believe it or not, I still have most of the animals and other farm items shown in the photograph!  Perhaps I should build them a new barn.  I also have some of the Christmas ornaments from the tree in this photo!

Me reflected in Christmas tree ornaments at shopping mall


Thanks to My Christmas Elves

Marigold quotes:


 "And the Grinch, with his Grinch-feet ice cold in the snow, stood puzzling and puzzling, how could it be so? 

It came without ribbons. It came without tags. It came without packages, boxes or bags. 

And he puzzled and puzzled 'till his puzzler was sore. Then the Grinch thought of something he hadn't before. 

What if Christmas, he thought, doesn't come from a store? What if Christmas, perhaps, means a little bit more?" 

 (How the Grinch Stole Christmas, Dr. Seuss)
