It seems we are in a recession of members who take the time to post on the Members News and Views. In the past five days not one posting took place. I feel we have much to talk about in spite of this being a almost total Forum dedicated to all sorts of horology. While politics is verboten…much goes on in our daily lives that could make for interesting reading and fill many pages of this Member News and Views Forum. Personally, I could post daily about what went on in my life during that day…but, while feeling reluctant to such daily posting; I know we have at least thirty five  members who may visit this site once or twice or more weekly in the effort to see what goes on here. Just think if one person each posted at least one piece weekly, we'd have enough reading and perhaps learning about what goes on in our daily lives…it could be more than enough to fill a book. For instance, yesterday, my cat Johnnie II did something she had never done before since her adoption by me. But I do not think too many of our readers may care about our combined goings on. However, it was miracle that I thought would never take place. At least, I learned with a cat, the unexpected can take place. One of the nurses who visited me during this past upset became part of the miracle. My cat approached her and let the nurse touch her pretty face, This cat hides when the door bell rings and disappears until the coast is clear and the house contains only her and me, her keeper and lover.
