That was fun getting to know you better. Do you still have one of the kitties? If so, you should introduce us! Tara

Sophia, The Diva Kitty said...

All very interesting...

Karen Jo said...

Bonnie, thanks for the information on catnip. I don't know if it will grow up here in the mountains, but I'll look into it.

Jeter, Muenster, Texas was named for Muenster, Germany, because the people who founded the town came from there. The cheese was named for the city in Germany. I put out fat for the ravens, especially in the winter because they really love it and they have a hard time finding enough food. The last movie I saw was "The Queen". I enjoyed it very much.

Tara, unfortunately I don't have any kitties now. I live with my aged mother, who is very, very allergic to kitties. Maybe someday I'll have a kitty or two again.
