Storytime

Momma wroted a new short story, and it's got two kitties in it!

Here's an eckserpt:

Hucklesby and I are out for our twilight walk up the mountain. Will I see Moonlight this time?

Today isn’t a good day for me. It’s Valentine’s Day, a day which brings, unbidden, images of what my life might have been, if only I’d made better decisions as a younger woman.

Regret, however, is a bitter companion. I prefer cats.

Like Hucklesby. A gray cat the color of twilight on a misty day. Though I might have been accompanied by other cats on my road not taken, none of them would have been my Hucklesby. He lives with me in my cabin in the woods but comes along on my twilight walks and never runs astray.

Go here to read the rest: "Moonlight's Gift."

Enjoy!

Your momma writes much more interesting stuff than what my momma writes. It's mostly gobbledeeguck. I think your momma is exactly right: cats are much better companions than regrets.
Your buddy, Jimmy Joe
