Two different personalities: Missy and Grey Billy


Just two very interesting family cats with very different personalities. However, the one thing that they had in common was that they were both very pretty females!

Missy was an all black cat with fur that shone like the sun and was oh, so silky to the touch! Grey Billy was a lovely grey and white girl with fur as soft as down. Both she and Missy had tails that looked like fans. They were so very pretty to the eye and I am so very happy that I was able to see what they looked like.

Missy loved her privacy and whenever she wanted to get away from the noise she would clamber up the vines to her rooftop chamber, as we called it. There she would stay for most of the day, returning to us in the late evening. I had managed to hang a bell from her collar so that I could tell where she was at all times.

On the other hand, Grey Billy would stay with us for a great part of the day, lying quietly under a chair and snoozing happily. I would say that Grey Billy had the gentler and more playful disposition.

I simply loved to powder Missy and wrap a very damp, warm towel around her which she enjoyed. But for Grey Billy, she simply enjoyed posing for photos with me.

Those were two of our family cats and they shall forever remain in my memory!

My very special childhood friend: Remembering Pidge


He was my little yellow budgie! He was my little childhood friend and he was always ready to play with me each time I stuck my finger through the bars of his cage and placed it onto his perch.

Playful Pidge loved for me to visit him. He would climb onto my finger and peck gently at it. He was a wonderful little friend who loved to sing, do summersaults at the bottom of his cage, and he loved to socialize with the
family.

Pidge lived for 7 years and when he finally left us I cried all day for him. I always looked forward to greeting him each day when I came home from school. Mom would always joke that he was waiting for me and maybe, just
maybe, he was.

We took him with us on holidays to the beach and made sure that his cage was placed on a window sill so that he could see outside during the day. He simply loved it all, especially being able to enjoy having the sun shine into
his cage and cover his little body with warmth.

That was my buddy, Pidgie!

An important message from Donna Jodhan

The world as we know it today is definitely not what it was as we knew it yesterday, and it will not be the same tomorrow after this horrific pandemic is over.
We need to do our best to protect not just ourselves but also each other with particular attention to our seniors and to the most vulnerable.

Let us not forget that it is thanks to our seniors that we are here today. For so many of them gave their lives to save the world during those unforgettable world wars and now they are again paying with their lives because of this horrific pandemic.

As part of my contribution to promote positive power, I will be posting positive messages to my personal Facebook page at www.facebook.com/donnajodhan
and invite visitors to check out my online store at www.donnajodhan.com
We can never have too many audio mysteries to keep us entertained while we self isolate at home.


Thank you and stay safe.

Now I can laugh about this! Afraid of president


No, not any president! We called him president because he was simply our childhood president! Just another guy who loved to scare us!

Each time we saw him we would run and hide and each time he saw us he would begin his display of funny gestures.

He would often walk by our yard looking for us and when he saw us then the fun would begin. My siblings and cousins would shout, "Look! Run! President is coming for us!"

Then we would run as fast as we could, rushing up the stairs to our house. More often than not, my brother Jeffrey would take me by the hand and literally drag me behind him as he ran. We would both be shouting, laughing, and I would put all of my trust in him to help me get away from president!

In truth, president was as harmless as anything else. I believe that he just wanted to scare us as kids and he really did not mean anything. His gestures were only meant to scare us a bit and he, too, would be laughing as he pretended to chase us!

An embarrassing experience: At the wrong meeting


Nothing could be more embarrassing than realizing that you are at the wrong meeting and especially so when you are seated in the middle of the room and you need to find a way to exit without being noticed. It does not matter
whether or not you are vision impaired; the embarrassment is the same!

This is what happened to me in late September 2019. I thought that I was in the right place at the right time but when I realized that I was not, I had to depend on Stephanie to guide me out of the room.

I am not sure if anyone noticed or moreover if anyone really cared. I did and as I walked swiftly out of the room with Stephanie and her young son Tyler, I could only bow my head in embarrassment.  What if Stephanie was not with me?

That would have been even more difficult for me, as a vision impaired person.

Famous magic words! Where is Mustard?


This is what I asked Mom when she first got her hearing aids. We were at the hearing clinic and she was being tested and fitted for her hearing aids.

She was sitting about five feet in front of me and the Audiologist asked me to say something to her. I asked her, "Where is Mustard?" and her immediate response was, "Mustard is in the zoo!"

I shall forever remember these words because I knew then that Mom was now hearing me loud and clear! She was once again hearing and now it was time to make sure that she stayed with me and the rest of the world, using her new
toys!

Such a treasured childhood memory: Daddy's dance with Yella


She was his favourite dog and he was her favourite person and every evening when Dad returned home from work, he would treat us to his dance with our fat, chubby yellow Lab, Yella.

It always seemed as if she knew what time Dad would be coming through the gate to our home.  There she would be, excited, wagging her tail back and forth and up and down and barking happily.

Dad would take her two front paws and dance with her! Yella would bark happily while the rest of us looked on. As long as both Dad and Yella were happy, then so was I.

This is a memory that shall forever be imbedded in my memory: Dad and Yella dancing when he returned home from work!  What a dad and what a dog!
