A Garden Visitor

Saturday, March 6, 2021

I only have an old-fashioned flip phone that barely functions enough to have conversations with other people. When it was updated a couple years ago by Verizon because their technology required me to shift to a different platform, it eviscerated my message service and now the phone’s ringer doesn’t even work. Of course, I have long wanted to get all this rectified, but the pandemic kicked in just at the point when I had conceded that it was time for a more current model.

I got my second vaccination shot this past Tuesday and hope to feel safe enough to visit a store by the end of month. I’ve heard of course that I could order a phone online and set it up myself, but I would have a chance to take a look at various models and ask questions about them face-to-face. I am looking forward to having a bit more capacity to take photographs and post them to various outlets.

In the meantime, I asked Linda this morning to use her phone to snap a photograph of a neighbor’s cat that occasionally visits our garden. It’s been at least a month since we’ve seen Minnie Mooch, as Jill calls this feral cat who hangs around their house across the street from us. It was lovely to see her again. She reminds me of Rupert, of course. How I miss him, and Cordelia, too!

Post-Script: By the time we left for a walk, she had enjoyed at least a two-hour nap in the sun.
