At our last Garden Club meeting, our talented neighbor, Ruth Jackson, graciously took out the jewelry she had made and shared the process and her gift with the ladies of the club. I was honored as she let me pick out a piece of jewelry to wear to the meeting. It was the blue flower necklace that you can see close up in the last photo. 
It was a toss up of choosing the blue flower necklace or the long necklace in second photo with the Ginkgo leaves. 
The pink necklace in the second photo she did by illustration only as the instructions were in a book written in Russian. 
She and her late husband who was an Artist in his own right, worked together on the chain jewelry and Ruth said he often made her jump rings for her. 
Most of these are tucked away in her jewelry case and as she proclaimed not worn often. 
The kitty justice, I would have a display case and change them often to enjoy those beautiful items and display them for others to gaze upon. 
Ah, Ruth is way to modest to do this.

HAVE YOU EVER FELT LIKE ONE?

THE KITTY JUSTICE IS I CAN UNFORTUNATELY SAY "YES" TO BOTH.

Prince standing outside of the Hendersonville Presbyterian Church. 
 The inside of the Church and the plaque outside on the front of the Church.

 One of the oldest ledgers showing where Capt. Thomas B. Wilson gave the Church $30.00. 
Capt. Thomas B. Wilson, Mimi's Grandfather, went to this Church and not by car but horse and buggy from his home, Wilson Farms, (now known as the old Comer House) off Gallatin Road. 
As luck would have it, the new pastor had come by to go to his office and the Church was open and we got to go inside and find the document. 
The new pastor graciously gave us a book "A Century Plus Five Years' by Powell Stamper which is a history of the Church from beginning to 1974. Capt. Wilson was mention on page 17. Prince gave him a donation for being so generous. 
The kitty justice is to love the coincidence that the Church was unlocked at the time we stopped.

Hun took this photo on 4-2-2012.
I thought I would share the following:


KITTY JUSTICE'S MORNING PRAYER


Thank you Almighty God for letting your humble servant see another sun rise.
Please give me STRENGTH to live righteously throughout this day,
for I know I will sin. 
Please fortify me with your LOVE so I can smile and be kind when I am faced with
INGRATITUDE, TREACHERY or MEANNESS OF SPIRIT. 
I plead with you to PRESERVE me from minding little STINGS or giving them. 
Lord I pray that you will GRANT me the ability to keep an open heart and mind so I
may see the GOOD in all things. 
Thank you Lord for giving me this new day.
In Jesus name we pray for all and not just me. 
Amen


The kitty justice is I made up my own pray because the ones I found to read did not incorporate all I felt but I did borrow some phrases if they fit.

 Prince parked his truck down by the Dutch barn yesterday evening and when he went outside to put the trash in the can, he looked and he had a hitch hiker. He ran inside and got his camera and started taking photos. 
He got even closer than this, but eventually had to put down the camera to shoo off the hiker. We thought it was novel until he looked at the truck and on the tail gate were nasty presents. After we dumped the photos on the computer and   everyone had  viewed a slide show, Prince went back outside and they were back. This time the male was up at the cab pecking his truck. and trying to stay upright on the side rail. Prince ran them off again and  brought the truck up to the garage and cleaned it off and said "Good thing it is not a new truck."
The Kitty Justice is we may be eating turkey later. YOU NEVER EVER MESS WITH A MAN'S TRUCK.

Prince took this photo the last day of March.
The kitty justice is you think Tennessee is green then, you should see it NOW.

Late yesterday afternoon I heard someone at the front door and when I opened it, the first thing I saw were these beautiful flowers. Brenda then stuck her pretty head around the side of the flowers and said in a happy voice, if there is a freeze tonight at least we can enjoy them in the house. 
These were her Mother's irises and she moved them to her front yard after her Mother went to be with the Lord. From Mimi's bedroom window she can see Brenda's front yard and gets to enjoy all of her outdoor labors. 
The kitty justice is I hope y'all open a door soon and all you can see is a giant bouquet of flowers delivered by a happy smiling neighbor.

HAPPY EASTER EVERYONE. 
I will probably not be back until next Monday as I am the cook for the Easter dinner. At least as of yesterday, I now have everything in the house. 
The photo above was taken  March 18th on Highway 96 going to Franklin, TN. I came by there yesterday and the bunnies and eggs still look great. During any holiday, it is fun to drive by this farm to see how they have decorated. As I was snapping these photos, a beautiful horse came up to a fence on the left and watch me as if to say, "Come take my picture too." Since we had already been on the Trace and needed to get Mimi back home as she tires easily, I did not oblige him or her. 
The Kitty Justice is to enjoy the bunnies and eggs at Easter BUT BE SURE TO REMEMBER THE TRUE MEANING. 
PEACE BE WITH Y'ALL

Had to share these beautiful Asiatic Lilies that Prince brought home to Mimi and me. He is so thoughtful. 
The kitty justice is I know where their forever home will be outside.

Since it is Easter Week, I thought I would put these glass crosses from a shop in Franklin here .
In the last 4 days I have been to 2 funeral homes. The last one the sweet lady was only TWO  years older than me. She lost her battle with Cancer. That is sad in itself but the whole story is very sad. 
She had two sons and the single one was getting married. I guess you know where I am heading. She died the day of his wedding. The wedding went on without her as they knew it was what she would have wanted and then they planned her funeral. May Peace be with her husband of 43 years, Bobby and her newly wed son, Montgomery. 
The Kitty Justice is life is short so enjoy your time here.
