Why Do I Keep Talking About Gun Violence? Good Question.

Saturday I went to a Pride/ Family Togetherness Rally. Everywhere I looked I saw the happy, smiling faces of people who were enjoying each other’s company while celebrating who they truly are.

All Things Equal…

Hello. I am Hissy Fit Jones. As a cat who started life homeless, I have a certain affinity for my fellow cats and dogs who do not have a home where they are cared for and loved. Things are better for us animals than they used to be. Back in the day, 12-20 million of … Continue reading
