|Ghost when she hears the doorbell...|
Actually this isn't a picture of Ghost, but one I found on Pinterest that made me think of Ghost. Isn't it strange how some cats react to certain things? When the doorbell rings Julie will run TO the door and Tux looks up, but doesn't react. Ghost panics and runs for the bedroom. Why? Certainly no reason we can figure out. All our cats came inside from being left on our back porch by feral mothers... and all about the same age - maybe 4-5 weeks? Why some show fear of certain things and others don't is a mystery. Sometimes I think that Ghost doesn't see well and that's why noises scare her. She can see... but how well is difficult to tell.
It's been raining here for 2 days now... and forecast to continue. It's also cold... not terribly, about 32 F... which is cold enough. Between reading and watching Netflix, my grandson has been teaching me how to play "Minecraft" on the computer... and a card game called "Magic: the gathering". Both are interesting, but very convoluted (at least to me who in general doesn't play games or cards). But I'm persevering. Are any of you familiar with these games?
I have played Solitaire and Mahjong on the computer when I'm wasting time waiting for something to finish cooking, but that's about it. If I have some time, my preference is to read, write, quilt, or sculpt. But my grandson plays video games a lot... (I guess most kids do these days) and is very patient teaching me the ins and outs. And I do believe that learning something new is good for our brain... so I'm working on it.
My sister-in-law loves to play the slots at Casinos. She goes with her friends whenever she can. Now she never brings much money, so she can't lose much... but enjoys the games, the food, etc. I tried the slot machines once when on a cruise and found it boring. Why? When so many people apparently love casinos and gambling, it makes me wonder what's the attraction? I must be missing something...
Anyway, that's where my mind is this dark cold rainy night. Guess I'll get back to Minecraft and see what progress I can make.
Thanks for reading!
