Killing time till I walk in the City of Angels - Bob Paslay

I think back about what I liked most or remember most about Christmas as a kid and one of those things that stands out in my mind is the waiting for it to come. This anticipation included finding ways to make the clock tick faster so the big day would arrive. I guess parents who are older and wiser know that you can't make time go any faster than one tick at a time. So they devised ways to make hours and sometimes days go by as we moved at molasses speed towards the big day.

Pets of the Week

Tank is a 7 year old, gray and white Persian mix. He has been neutered, declawed, and all vaccinations are current. Tank was originally adopted out from CCHS in 2000. He was recently returned to CCHS, not because of anything he had done, but simply because there was a new baby in the house. Tank is an exceptionally sweet and gentle boy, and he does fine with other cats and dogs. Weighing in at approximately 18 pounds, Tank is a BIG boy! Though not a young cat, he is really only "middle-age" for a cat, and he has many good years ahead of him.
