As you get older I think you take things with a grain of salt. That is why I am allowing this most unflattering view of my bum to be shown to the world. There is a bigger story here than my own personal vanity. This is my cat Gene Wilder "Tater" and this is his blog world debut. Last Saturday I came home from shopping and began putting away my produce (thus the unflattering position). All of a sudden I felt a thump and realized that Tater had jumped from the hutch where he normally watches the world to my back. He was not a bit afraid and walked back and forth as if I were a stage. At first I was a little upset as any overindulgent parent would be when faced with ones inadequate parenting skills but then I started to look at the big picture. Maybe Tater is headed for great things like joining the circus. We could perfect our act and take it on the road. If I could just come up with a name.
