True confessions...


Three things you may not have known about me and my family.

#1) I always think of dogs as boys, and cats as girls.

#2) My one cat was married before - well... she had children.

#3) My parents were married by a Justice of the Peace, but they posed for wedding photos on the steps of the Cathedral.

  1. Re: #1...I thought I was the only one who did that!

    Hubby and I posed on the steps of his family parish church after we were married civilly but before we were married in our own parish. I can't wait to go to Rome LOL!(I'll be wearing a white dress and veil the day we go to St. Peter's LOL)

  4. BTW, I found the poem and it's called the Art of Disappearing by Naomi Shihab Nye.

    Thanks for posting it!

  5. Terry, I LOVE white cats! I've had two of them - one was "Gumby" and the other was "Frosty."

  6. Gosh, I am a contrarian. I've only owned cats and they were always male, so I think of all cats as boys. Hubby's family had dogs and they were always female, so think of dogs as girls :)

    My brother practically insists that I need to check into seeing if I'm really married since I was merely married in a Catholic Church by a Catholic priest, before God and all. In Switzerland, according to him, only civil marriages are recognized. After all these years I'm in a common law marriage anyway, yee ha! An honest woman!

  7. Terry: Re #2: I know! It was a big scandal. She was "with" Triumph the Insult Comic Dog! It was in all the papers! Terrible, terrible.

    Angela: I'd love to see you (in a white dress) and your hubby in photos from Rome. I think you should try and go.
