We Like to Reminisce

Back -- way back - there was a poetry contest.

People attending a writer's conference in Pittsburgh were invited to post their poems on a bulletin board. They would all be judged and the winner announced the last day.

Mom Julie, on a whim--so glad she took the subject matter seriously--posted what I've shared below.

It won first prize. Excited and happy, she brought home no money, just a certificate and the first introduction to my life.

 Sometimes I can be an embarrassment with what I do or say. Usually, though, I make her proud since I'm just so adorable, she can't stand it.

Be good and say your prayers.

Sin-cerely,


~Tom the Parish Cat
