Welcome to my blog. I hope you will visit often and enjoy the information about pets and nature as well as my efforts at photography. I welcome comments and enjoy interacting with readers and viewers.
All information written here is just that. It is not to be used as a tool to diagnose or treat your pet.
I was born and reared in the same county where I have lived my entire life. I grew up on a farm in central Texas and as a toddler I already loved the animals, especially the cats, dogs, horses, and mules.” For many years I have not eaten anything that is hoofed or feathered. I sometimes eat fish.
I worked for 35 years as a registered nurse at the Veteran’s Administration Hospital until I retired in 2010. I learned how to work hard when I was young and that work ethic served me well. My professional job was very stressful, exacting and, demanding. There was no room for bad judgement or error. I do not miss my work at all. I have too many things to do and accomplish in what ever time I am lucky enough to have.
I have used a camera off and on since my early twenties. Presently, I am using a Canon EOS 60D with a somewhat lousy 18-200mm kit lens. I would love to have a prime lens that will give me sharper photos but I can not afford to ante up $1,500 so the kit lens will suffice. I still have all my older cameras and equipment but all of this is now outdated. I prefer film but the advantages of a DSLR are too many not to use this type of camera.
My passions include my two adult children, animals, animal rescue, animal welfare, trapping, spaying and/or neutering of feral cats, photography, nature, native plants and, my passal of rescued pets.
I really appreciate visitors who take the time to view, read, and/or comment or who are just following. For individuals that view/visit my blog, I sincerely hope that anyone visiting this blog finds information that will be helpful.
One of my favorite quotes that pertains to animals and people:
“We can judge the heart of a man by his treatment of animals.” Emanuel Kant.
