I don't have any pets now that the kids are grown.  Each of my girls has a cat or two.  Cats have been the pet of choice for our family for years.

Hurray!  These two space debris crafts missed each other last night, Thursday, October 15

Some blurbs from the report I read say:

"Bullet dodged," McDowell said on Twitter. "But space debris is still a big problem." 
Space collisions make clouds of dangerous high-speed debris
Nearly 130 million bits of space junk currently surround Earth, from abandoned satellites, spacecraft that broke apart, and other missions. That debris travels at roughly 10 times the speed of a bullet, which is fast enough to inflict disastrous damage to vital equipment, no matter how small the pieces.

A debris disaster could cut off our access to space
If the space-junk problem were to get extreme, a chain of collisions could spiral out of control and surround Earth in an impassable field of debris. This possibility is known as a Kessler event, after Donald J. Kessler, who worked for NASA's Johnson Space Center and calculated in a 1978 paper that it could take hundreds of years for such debris to clear up enough to make spaceflight safe again.

Good for you Tresbn00!  Your list of things you've done since January is impressive.  Being uber organized is a great trait!

We have the beautiful fall colors you are talking about.  I love to see the reds, oranges, yellows, so beautiful.  The only problem with the changing of seasons is the next one is winter  :snowflake: :snowflake: and I hate winter.

I hear you there Nancy5!  I don't like winter either!  Maybe someday my husband and I will be able to spend some/part of the winter somewhere warm.  It will be a few years though.....

Where does one store/house/display such a specimen?  Did a private party buy it from a museum??

Thank you for a beautiful visual journey on the "train ride" we call life.  May my train ride leave a lasting memory of goodness and love to those in my family as well point them toward eternity.

Off-Topic / Beautiful Fall Colors

This weekend I was fortunate to be able to take in some of the beautiful fall colors.

Yesterday I drove my Mom through the local game preserve and just enjoy all the different colors of leaves on the trees ,bushes, and vines.  She is 90, and doing quite well.  She still lives on the home place but with this COVID stuff she has been rather locked in and doesn't get out often.  We had such a pleasant afternoon.

Today my husband and I hiked the trails on in a nearby state park.  It was windy, but warm.  We left a bit earlier than we had planned as the weather app showed a thunderstorm was heading our way.  We got home before any rain fell.  So far, I've just heard a few raindrops hit the window.  Not sure if it will pass us by or not.

It really depends on how far away "out of my way" is to determine if I would go there for my craving.  I wouldn't drive to a different town that's for sure.

bizmates, these song titles made me laugh outloud!  I even hummed a few lines of each title as I read through them.

Your cats are lucky to have you as their fur Mom.  I'm not sure I could give shots and the treatments you have to.
