One of my first cats

Going through photo albums and found this pic
Taken in the early 1960s the pic was used in an article in Dog World as they were interviewing my father who was a show judge as well as exhibitor and I think the cup was a trophy. Kitten name was Toby and he had a long happy life living to his teens.

The Window Through Which We Look

The Window Through Which We Look
A young couple moved into a new neighborhood
The next morning while they were eating breakfast,
The young woman saw her neighbor hanging the wash outside.
That laundry is not very clean,' she said.
She doesn’t know how to wash correctly.
Perhaps she needs better laundry soap.”

Her husband looked on, but remained silent.

Every time her neighbor would hang her wash to dry,
The young woman would make the same comments.

About one month later, the woman was surprised to see
a nice clean wash on the line and said to her husband:

“Look, she has learned how to wash correctly.
I wonder who taught her this.”
The husband said,”I got up early this morning and
Cleaned our windows.”
And so it is with life.
What we see when watching others
Depends on the window through which we look.
