Yes, I’m still here. Unlike Schrödinger’s cat, there is no paradox. I exist whether I’m boxed or not. And, much like Mark Twain, “Reports of my death are greatly exaggerated.” But this past year hasn’t been easy for me. I really did almost die a few times. I was locked downstairs for days weeks! Although, if … More Roxie’s Fire and Fury
It’s been a while, so for those who don’t know me, I’m Roxie Dammit – Roxie D. to my fan club. I’m “The Other Cat” who resides in the house. The cat who DOES NOT have a book series named after her, as my little sister, ZuZu has. She’s Mom’s favorite. I’m merely kept around … More Roxie D. On Missing the Last Train to Kingston
It’s me, Roxie. I’ve been left at home on Christmas Eve while the folks are out gallivanting. Lord knows where? Probably following the star to Bethlehem or Las Vegas. Once again, I’m stuck here with ZuZu, the most boring cat in the world. She’s lying around while I’m watching the house. It’s almost Christmas and so far, … More Roxie’s Christmas Eve
Roxie here. I haven’t posted in quite sometime because The Powers That Be (you know who I’m talking about) has been very stingy with the laptop to the point of total self-absorption. She types and types, using up all the charge so, I’ve yet to see one cat video in weeks! And we could have … More Roxie aka The Other Cat – November Sucks!
Hi, it’s Roxie and I’m still here. Now, some of you probably thought I’d died or worse, that I’d run out of things to say. Rest assured, I’m full of things to say. I just haven’t been able to get any computer time around this place. Mom and Dad have been in and out for … More Roxie D. aka “The Other Cat” Feeling the Burn
Roxie, here. Hope all is going well with my good friends out there in the blogosphere. The folks were watching a movie last night. In it, a girl named Alice falls down a rabbit hole and ends up in Wonderland! She meets a Cheshire Cat who can disappear into thin air. I would love to … More Roxie’s Frabjous Day
Hi, It’s Roxie D. checking in… As you know, I like to snoop pay attention to what goes on around here and complain about share my findings with all of you. It’s been really boring lately, but I have been reading some of the posts Mom leaves up on the laptop and interesting stuff is … More Roxie aka “The Other Cat” Is Bored !
I woke up happy. I stretched. I yawned. It was a beautiful morning, promising to be sunny and warm. A day made for the books. Daffodil and hyacinth bulbs were beginning to bloom. It reminded me of the peaceful beginning of Stonewall Jackson’s “The Lottery” one of Mom’s favorite short stories. I started humming “You Rock … More Roxie’s Easter Horror Tale
Roxie here. I’m writing a post once again to help Mom. She’s been busy with other things the last two weeks, so someone has to bail her out. You remember that she and Dad decided to paint the kitchen last November and what a mess the house was in for weeks? (They’re really slow. Like … More Roxie’s Lament
A Happy Meewww Year to everyone from me, Roxie. Mom has decided to take a break from the blogosphere this week. She’s made an early New Year’s resolution to get the first draft of her mystery completed and is trying to avoid distractions. I’ve decided to help by getting rid of her main distraction. I … More Roxie’s Resolution
During the first week in December, Charley and I went on another adventure with our friends Jack and Jean. We took a pleasant train ride from our local Kingston Station to Penn Station in New York and became part of the masses that flock to the Big Apple every year at this time. We enjoyed … More A Holiday State of Mind
I’m a late bloomer. Very late! At age 65, I wrote a story featuring a tabby kitten named ZuZu, born in a barn at Tanglewood, the summer home of the Boston Symphony Orchestra. I liked it so much I wrote more stories set in the Berkshires and added in lots of farm animals and an … More Claremary P. Sweeney, RI’s Late-Blooming Author
