This post started out with my new ideas about replacing the email subscription service for those of you who read via email. Now I'm back editing to say I've given up finding an alternative. None of the services are free, and I'm afraid I'm too cranky and cheap to pay for one on a monthly basis. If you are an email subscriber, please know that you will stop receiving these emails on July 1st. If you want to continue reading, I'm afraid you'll need to follow via one of the services listed in my left side bar. Another alternative is to create a shortcut on your own screen. You can do that by dragging and dropping this Cat Patches link to your desktop and creating an icon there. It will open the blog for you, and you can read any new posts as they appear. And, I'm sorry...there's nothing else I can do about this. I'm open to suggestions, however. So suggest away if you know something I don't. (I imagine there's a LOT you know that I don't, but you know what I mean.)
Okay, everybody...now for the fun part. Or maybe it's not fun...I can't really tell from here, but I'm trying my best. We went out for a drive yesterday. The weather was lovely, and Mike wanted an excuse to drive his car. The mountains were out in force. I tried to get a picture of them, but they look awfully small in an image. They're much prettier when you can see the in person. Way off on the distant horizon, you can barely see Mt. Rainier (on the left), then Mt. St. Helens, and then on the far right, Mt. Adams.
