Her name is Ivy; she is a rescue cat whom we adopted almost four years ago! She is an adorable bundle of joy who loves her cuddles and acts as if she is still a kitten, even though we estimate her to be at least five years of age. She loves riding on shoulders, running through tunnels, and playing with just about anything. She'll even go as far as to chase her own tail or shadow!

Hmmm, an #introduction, well ... I'm an old man (55+, he, him) I'm a #nerd. Specifically: Looking forward to "Revolution of the Daleks" Been watching #DrWho since the mid-'70s (Pertwee/Baker) I've seen every episode of every #StarTrek barring recent seasons of Discovery and Below Decks.

Oh, let the sun beat down upon my face
And stars fill my dream
I'm a traveler of both time and space
