Aren't older people a treasure? I've always admired, and listened to, older friends, family, and neighbors.
That's terrible about the chair. :-(
My father's grandmother - my grandmother's mother - who was old, but in good health, stumbled down some stairs at night, with the same result. :-(
That makes sense that she had Brahma's. My mom's family have some people in it, especially a first cousin, who have cattle...well, did. I don't know anything about them anymore...and some of them were Brahma's. They lived in S.E. Okla., bordering Texas.
The funny thing about those cows were that they came running when he honked his horn.
Also, the people didn't say, Brahma, they called them: Brimmers.
My mom and aunt visited them one year, and were having dinner at their house. They had a young son. When mom asked about the Brahmas. The son said, (Read this sentence with a Tx./Okla. drawl: "Did you hear that, Daddy? She called the Brimmer's Brahma's!"
Ah, so she's the one who taught you about small batch canning. I've passed that on to people since you first shared it with me. What was her name? I like to remember people by giving them credit for what we learned from them.
As we age, fewer and fewer of those wonderful people are left.
Thanks, and please let me know how it works with a domestic cat!
