All Classes, Personal Favor, Pretty Please

I volunteer at Cozy Cat Cottage. Despite the precious name, it is pretty hardcore on the rescue front and the campaign to spay and neuter every cat that comes through its doors.   It has placed over 6000 homeless or rescued cats into homes, including the one in the story that I wrote for them for the "Heartwarming stories" portion of the contest for the annual, international Shelter Challenge by Petfinder.   Hundreds of stories get submitted and the one that represents Tiger Lily and Cozy Cat: "One Fierce Flower," was fortunate enough to make the top ten.  Sadly, only the top two stories will win any funds for their shelters and CCC, having recently expanded their space in order to house a low-cost spay/neuter clinic and a surgery room, is in real need of funds.

If you would be so kind as to make a little daily routine of voting for One Fierce Flower from now until December 16th, once a day from any computers you encounter and/or your cell phone, you would be helping us out immensely.

American Lit. Final Days Schedule

Remember to have read or rather, re-read:  Sonny's Blues and White Angel by James Baldwin and Michael Cunningham, respectively. And don't forget the Lobster essay in your Touchstone anthologies. Anyone forgetting his/her book or not able to participate, will indicate that the reading has not been completed and will receive a zero for the day.

Let's give your new student teaching group something with which to work during their discussion. When it's your turn to present, you'll appreciate the effort, I promise.

Remaining groups to present on Wednesday, which is also our final day of class.  :-( 

See you soon.
