The Humane Society of Clarksville-Montgomery County to hold Open House for Kitten Adoptions

 

Humane Society of Clarksville – Montgomery County (HSCMC)Clarksville, TN – The Humane Society of Clarksville-Montgomery County will be holding an open house on Saturday from 10:30am till 2:00pm to find loving home for 14 adorable kittens.

Two pregnant cats were rescued by long-time HSCMC volunteer and local cat “guru” Elaine Weil, and as nature would have it, they gave birth to the 14 kittens.

The kittens have been raised to be outgoing and easy to handle.  The Humane Society is afraid that the kittens may be overlooked because they aren’t tiny babies, they are about 5 months old, which is honestly a PURR-fect age! They deserve loving homes where they can get lots of individual attention.

Roasting Chestnuts

 
Chestnuts

Chestnuts

“Chestnuts roasting on an open fire,” every time I heard that song during the first 23 years of my life I wondered what a chestnut was and how to roast one.  And what it tasted like. Was it sweet? Was it rich? Do you coat it with sugar or cinnamon?

Did I ever tell you about the chestnut roasting fiasco of 1982? «Read the rest of this article»
