    Square_140_thumbnail-sylvester All my dad's cats have gone to "cat heaven" but I still think of them and miss them.

  • Oh No! Am I Becoming A Pack Rat Too? (Writer's Workshop)

    (Bench made by dad) Sven & Wendy (President of Kitten Krazy at her home in Medina, Ohio) When my dad died, I donated a lot of his things to Kitten Krazy, a non-profit private organization that primarily does kitten adoptions. Many of the things I donated to their auction to help them raise money to remodel their shelter and take care of the cats. Some of the things donated are now being used in the shelter. Today was the first time we got to visit and see the place first-hand. My initial...

    from My Funny Dad, Harry

    Friday April 19th, 2013 at 05:34 PM

    My dad had diabetes and as he grew older, experienced many problems. He never complained or stewed about things, but always came up with a way to make things easier on himself.

Problem: Arthritis in fingers so he had a hard time pulling up zippers. Solution: Attached a paper clip to the zipper to make it easier to...
