Franciscan Focus

Just a simple blog of a Secular Franciscan trying to live with a Franciscan focus.

Random bits o' fun 'n' whimsey 

First up, Fr. Johansen's pictorial essay on his and Mark Shea's recent clay-pigeon-shooting fun is a hoot. (Set aside any food 'n' beverages before lookin'.) Especially liked the last picture of Father, titled "Fr. Rob Ready To Defend The Faith".

On a completely different note, reality shows are goin' to the ... cats. Yep, a new show's following 10 kitties in search of homes as they "spend the next 10 days in a New York store window, their every move caught on camera for a reality TV show on which they will compete for best sleeper and mouse-catcher. ... Kitties who get the boot will be adopted into permanent homes." (Reuters). The winner will, too, of course, but he or she will also get a job as "Feline Vice President of Research and Development" for Meow Mix. My fave so far is Sam ("who meows with a drawl"), but it's prolly 'cause he looks so much like our The B.

[An aside: Just 'cause Meow Mix is sponsoring this show doesn't mean their food is a good choice for yer cats. It ain't! See what really goes into most commercial pet food, and how to pick a good brand.]

Totally whimsical and oh-so-cute: Urban Fairies! I love the idea of huntin' around to find lil' fairy doors in unexpected places. Hee! (Thanks to my pal Missie for sharin' this.)

Charlie loooves TV. Not usually cats, but we have left the set on to Animal Planet before heading out. I wonder if he'd like the new show?
