These are the last of Lenard's paintings. He and Shirley both made the comment that the children had the best ones. If there are some better than these, then his children are very lucky. My dear friend cannot see well and his hearing is fading too. He does not paint any more and those paintings he has done are very precious. He was cute when he told me "My job is to help Shirley remember." I was sad when he told me all he could see was a fuzzy place where my features were. I  stated quickly so he would not hear sadness in my voice, "That he could make me as pretty as he wished with his imagination." 
The kitty justice is I do not plan to wait as long to visit them again.

I found this impulse buy at our local Dollar General Store. I will keep unsightly clutter in this box. 
The kitty justice is the box is the treasure and not what is inside.

Another painting by Lenard. Do you recognize the place? Lenard painted in oils and when I would enter art class I would get a whiff of oil paints and turpentine. That smell would draw me quickly into the past and I would envision myself back at UT taking classes from Gus Baker. Ah, to walk down memory lane by just entering the room. After we would spend the morning painting, we girls would gather around Lenard for lunch break.  If it was nice weather we would head out to the courtyard where there were picnic tables with umbrellas for shade. Unfortunately, only Lenard, our mutual friend and I are left out of that group. He would often share some of Shirley's baked goodies with us.Yummy, we felt as if we were special when he shared those heavenly treats.  His quick humor and his telling of  jokes would entertain us ladies. His raspy voice was unique and it was great to listen to the wisdom of Lenard  
The kitty justice is those were the FUN DAYS at art class.

This is one of the few paintings hanging in Lenard and Shirley's apartment. When I started taking classes from Hazel King, the first person I would see would be Lenard. Just like all the rest of us he would have his usual spot and it was always by the class door. As I would come down the small hallway he would look up and say "Good Morning." I had not seen him for awhile but kept up with him through a mutual friend. Our mutual friend and I went to visit them and he graciously let me take pictures of his paintings. I will show the other paintings in future posts. 
The kitty justice is to visit with friends before they become a Head Stone.

 Sunday January 22nd, I was greeted by Moe and he had had an encounter with a skunk. Even his cubie and cushion in the chair had the unpleasant odor. I had a bottle of Natures Miracle and I proceeded to spray him and his cubie and cushions. Prince put a fan blowing on the cubie so it would dry.
Wednesday 25th,  I let Maggie dog out for her first morning outing and she did her business and then took off running behind the log cabin. I heard her chasing something and when she returned with her head and tail tucked she had lost an encounter with a skunk. Again I got out the Nature's Miracle and rubbed her down. Then I made her spend the day in the kitchen . I do believe the odor is trapped in my sinuses. Everyone else on the hill say they do not smell it however, there is a faint odor of Peppe LaPew. 
Sam Cat does not go out side so he is safe from the skunk. 
The kitty justice is to plan the demise of the outside Varmint.

 The link below belongs to The Cedar Place where lots of beautiful things are made. Our friend Danny runs it now that his father died. Please visit to see some great items. Now if you recall, my FIL had a cherry tree cut to make Prince some furniture but never got it done before his death in 1975. Danny has taken most of the wood and made some wonderful furniture for us. This is the last of the wood and he made the table from the measurements I provided. He sat down in the shop and drew it out and I was thrilled to say that was what I wanted. I had gotten these rather different glass knobs and had him use them on the drawers. Between my friends, Danny and Rick, I feel I have accomplished what my FIL wished to happen to the wood. I did not know of it existence until the man who use to  work on the farm asked me one day what I wanted to do with it and his suggestion was to burn it. The kitty justice is that I did not listen to him.Remember to visit www.thecedarplace.com

I rarely shop for myself as I get a thrill buying things I think others will like. However, when Sis and I were on one of our retail therapy trips, I saw these Angels. Being the frugal person that I am, I bought only the one standing. Sis said the next day, she rushed back to the store and bought the two sitting. Those along with other things I can use example body lotion, body bath and a super nail polisher were in my Christmas package from her. I put them in my bed room so I see them first thing in the morning and the last thing at night. 
The kitty justice is that you have some Angels to enjoy or better still watch over you.

 THIS PHOTO IS JUST LIKE OUR GOVERNMENT. THE LIGHT IS WHAT THEY LET US SEE AND THE BLACK IS WHAT WE DO NOT SEE. We have TOO MUCH government controls and not enough freedom of the people. The actual percentage of people out of work is 15.7 percent. I and my big Sis have a real good idea as to how to  change our government. 
1. They should be paid only the minimum wage while in office. 
2. All of their assets should be put in a Trust to not be used while in office. 
3. Any gains on their wealth while in office should be put in a fund for the hungry.
4. If the government cannot come to a decision then the people in that part of the government are NOT to be paid nor reimbursed later but will have to pay the government for their Indecision. 
5. Their retirement and health benefits should be the same as the American public, NO special benefits to be made for serving our country. This could be modeled after our US servicemen benefits. THERE IS NO POLITICIAN AS GOOD AS ANY SERVICEMAN. 
Got the above in an email. Kind of says it all, don't you think?

Moe has finally accepted the old cushion and towels I put in the chair for him to sleep on. Now to get him to go inside the new cubie I placed under the chair. 
The Kitty Justice is the animal world has known all along that a nap is healthy. Too bad all those expensive studies are now being done to prove that.

This lodge iron skillet is really tiny. My SIL found it for her little Grand child. Lodge Company is located here in Tennessee. 
The kitty justice have you ever seen an iron skillet this small.

Our neighbors across the lane gave this flower to Mimi for Christmas. At the time, it only had two stalks. It now has 6 blooms with 2 more on the way. 
The kitty justice is that Mimi has enjoyed seeing each bloom arrive.

Here is the birthday lunch Peaches serviced. She served us hot rolls to go with it and afterwards, we each got a Chocolate Pastry with a candle in the top. When we blew our candle out we each one made a wish. 
The kitty justice is I wish I could tell you my wish but then it would not come true.

I got more cards and presents yesterday after I did the post. The red gloves  and bookmark were from Cat, the black photo clutch from Peaches along with the horse book and the blue note clutch from Knoxie. Peaches had us girls over to lunch and a yummy one it was. When we four get together it is a hen party of fun. Our friendship started with the love of Art and painting. It has continued to bloom into a very caring and loving basket of exotic flowers. Each one as individual and colorful as a precious stone. 
The kitty justice is you never know what a little paint brush will do.

 HAPPY BURPDAY TO ME. HAPPY BURPDAY TO ME. HAPPY BURPDAY DEAR KITTY. HAPPY BURPDAY TO ME. Prince gave me two cards and a silver letter opener. The avon fun stuff came from my dearest friend, The Pope, who lives in Macon, Ga.

This is a sign that greets you, I have enlarged it in the following 3 photos so you can easily read.

The Kitty Justice is this is rather informative.

 It was a rather sobering sight to see the McGavock Confederate Cemetery  on December 17, 2011 without any acknowledgement of the season seen anywhere among the grave. The above photo was taken from the back of the cemetery and the one below was taken as we went through the gates at the entrance. 

It was uncanny quite  on a cool day as if the dead were crying out wanting to be remember at Christmas. This is a monument for 225 unidentified soldiers who exist in eternity  without anyone knowing their names. They were some one's son, brother, husband, father, uncle or cousins. 
 This is the top of the monument and as I snapped the photo I wondered if  Great Uncle William or Great Uncle Pleasant are lying under this stone. My Great Grandfather Samuel's brothers went off to fight for the south and according to my cousins writings in 1994 were believe to be killed at the Battle of Franklin or Battle of Murfreesboro. But where do they rest.
There were 1.496 young men from the south killed at the Battle of Franklin. The kitty justice is these boys were fighting for their homeland and state rights not what is taught in most places.

I like to wrap packages and use real ribbon or just fix up a basket or bowl full of little items. 
The kitty justice is I am not a "BAG" person. However, I do use them when in a pinch. LOL
