About Kay Strickland

I am a keeper of my family's lore, chasing after my ancestors' tales in south central New York, southwestern Pennsylvania and Southside Virginia. The stories and photographs that I share on this blog are my intellectual property. While I do my very best to provide well researched posts, I do not pretend to have reached genealogical proof standards. Therefore, much of this work is to generate conversation among interested parties. If you would like to share my work or my records, please contact me: dkaysdays (at) gmail (dot) com.

‘Twas a Dark and Stormy Night…

It was a dark and stormy night…

Well, it was dark.

And the five week old tuxedo kitten sat transfixed by my daughter’s headlights…in the middle of the downtown street.  A powerful cat-lady, this young woman scooped up the furry handful and brought her home. Even if the local rescue organizations had had room, this kitten could never leave our hearts. Now nine weeks old, Dora Simone is an inquisitive, acrobatic house-cat.

It Was That Hard

From driveway to birdbath in five minutes…the rain was THAT hard.

Midsummer star-shine, caught in a green glove, is redistributed all sorts of critters.

Sunshine…Finally

We have no shortage of water right now in the northeast.  So, when the shadows begin to appear, I gratefully acknowledge the sunshine at my table.
