Travels With Cats
“Cats are easier than dogs.” Or so a good friend and passionate dog lover keeps telling me.
That is true if you leave them at home. People who lived near the World Trade Center returned to their apartments some weeks after 9-11 to find their cats had survived handily, having successfully scrounged for food (presumably rodents as we are talking NYC) and drinking toilet water. But try taking a cat on the road and all bets are off.
Two tipsy sisters in the kitchen
Cooking is a passion for me that I had the opportunity to put to a test when I helped my sister Susan run the kitchen at Grey Duck Landing this fall and winter. Our childhood on the farm was good preparation, as Susan and I have been cooking for men since we could first reach the burners on the stove. My poor father and his brothers, particularly Uncle Roy, suffered through some pretty terrible experiments (Spam spaghetti comes to mind). I’m happy to say we’re much more skilled today and hunters often come back to the kitchen to request recipes. Hence, we are compiling the Grey Duck Landing or Two Tipsy Sisters in the Kitchencookbook.
About Anne Leonard
After a career writing about oil and gas, I now have time to devote to creative writing. I am known among my friends as a story teller, so it is time to see if I can put those stories into prose. I’ve always aspired to be an author. One of my earliest memories is of pasting pictures from a magazine onto a sheet of paper. It was to be a fairy tale, and I had my grandmother write down words of what the pictures depicted and then read it back to me. Unfortunately, they were all nouns and did not form sentences, let alone tell a story.
