As Co-author, I assist Judy Howard. I do research because I am of a curious nature. My four waking hours I act as editor, supervising the mouse’s motions.
You may meet me at one of the libraries, RV rallies or Veteran centers when Judy presents her writing seminars.
When we are not traveling in our motorhome, I oversee Judy’s Pet Grooming Salon, in Sun City, California where we reside.
I hope to meet you as we journey through life.
A tragic event occurred
on August 12. I lost contact with my peeps while I attended the FMCA RV
rally in Redmond, Oregon. It happened when the battery in Judy’s computer died and had to be
airlifted to Toshiba’s tech hospital somewhere in cyber land for resuscitation.
The damage was extensive and we were forced to survive with only the tiny
keyboard on our cell phone, too small for my furry paws.
Limited to Facebook the last six weeks of our
Washington-Oregon coast adventure, I was forced to keep my comments terse. I

Oops! Sorry, that was from the motor home's Kitty Kam while Judy was out walking the beach.

be. She spread out in front of me these pictures from The Olympic Game Farm in Sequim,
Washington to bring home her point. She emphasizedshe was able to shoot these candid pictures because
it was a drive-thru safari experience.
But still, I dreamed of days when I could be free to wander
Judy continued her adventures while I chose a spot to nap that
demonstrated how confined I was feeling, not living in the wild.
Kitty Kam caught the pose while Judy spent the day in a copper sculpting class at
Massey Copper in Port Townsend,
She returned home and proudly showed me her creation. Still too confining to
I won’t give up. I will keep up with my yoga moves, I must
stay in shape for Kira …and The Wild.
And I will remember Judy’s wise words, “It is far better to dare mighty things, to win glorious
triumphs, even though checkered with failure, than to rank with those poor
spirits who neither enjoy much, nor suffer much, because they live in a twilight
that knows not victory or defeat.”….or maybe it was Teddy
And please remember our veterans and their families who have followed Teddy Roosevelt's philosophy....and mine.
Every hour a veteran commits suicide.
Please carry the message.
