My wife was looking at the tag cloud in the sidebar of my blog and said she noticed I don't have many posts about cats. Since we're cat people, I thought I'd better do something about that!

Our grandson Drew loves to play in water, and so his grandma Esther bought him a swimming pool. Here are several pictures of him enjoying it.
