Here’s her drawing du jour:

3 40

And here’s my stitching du jour,
featuring my grandcats (at bathtime)
Adonis (the big gray boy, a.k.a. The Bather)
and Zanax (the butterscotch wiry boy, a.k.a. The Bathee)
as Envoys:



Now listen,
I’ve got a surprise for you tonight.
Lookie what happens
when you turn #40 upside over.
(Yes, it’s still bathtime.)



Wait for it . . .


A mountain goat,
right down to the eyeball.
Sure looks like a mountain goat to me,
employing the sticky on the bottom of her feet
so she can stand on the side of the mountain
without falling.

Isn’t that fun?
Doesn’t that just tickle you?
Did Nancy draw that deliberately?
Maybe so.
That’s sure a distinct possibility,
as far as I’m concerned.
I’ll tell you one thing:
when we are surprised at anything
people with disabilities do,
I think it says more about us
than them.


She is my developmentally disabled sister-in-law, Nancy,
and I am Jeanne, the woman who flat-out loves her.

And there’s a pinterest board, too.
