I have to say that I absolutely adore the cat-themed hop graphics that this group of organizers started using. They are all adorable, and remind me a LOT of our own cats. Freddie as a kitten looked a lot like this little fuzzball.
Howsomever, in this particular case I’m not sure how apropos the feline theme is. After all, we don’t train our cats, they train us! George is currently training Galen to run his and Hecate’s favorite toy by making a nuisance of himself on the kitchen table until Galen gets up and pushes the buttons to make it go. Meals have become a two-person operation as one of us has to guard the food while the other goes to start the toy. George is already on his second iteration of the toy – he broke the first one by playing with it a bit too enthusiastically.
This year’s return to learning is a special case for another reason, as schools -and parents – in the U.S. are caught on the horns of a particularly painful dilemma, whether their children should attend school in person, with all the risks of COVID19 contagion, or learn at home via distance learning, with all of the technological issue and educational pitfalls. I don’t envy them their choices. We seem to be in a time of no good answers, only questions, that has lasted far too long because too many people are unwilling to take the simple step of wearing a damn mask.
But this is a giveaway hop and not a soapbox. So, I’m giving away the winner’s choice of a $10 Amazon Gift Card or a book up to $10 in value from the Book Depository to one lucky winner. This giveaway is open to anywhere that the Book Depository ships!
