There are no story photo challenges today. This is a celebratory and thank you post.
Most of you know I was participating in a photo contest regarding cats. This weekend I learned that two of the photos were accepted for exhibit. YEAH!!! The header picture and this one were selected to be put in the exhibit and judged.
I want to thank all of the following people for participating as my photography “judges.” You did a wonderful job. I really could not have done this without you!

J.C. — Jim the Chef, more commonly known as Jim, but called J.C. due to too many Jims in one family:~)
For those of you who don’t know him, Jim is my life partner. He deserves a very BIG, BIG thank you for putting up with me as I took on this photography challenge. He encouraged me, each and every step, to keep going, even though I wanted to stop many times.
Whereas you, my readers, looked at 11 photos, J.C. looked at close to a hundred photos and did so with patience. He might have groaned a bit, but never complained when he heard me say, “I just took some more pictures of Aggie. Come see which ones you like.”
He has been a wonderful gift in my life. I am one lucky woman.
Agatha, a. k. a. Aggie or sometimes “crazy Aggie!”
How could I NOT thank the star of the show? Aggie has been a patient little cat, willing to put up with a camera being constantly in her face. She is a shelter cat. I had looked at pictures and picked a cat before arriving. However, this cat didn’t exactly take to me and bit my hand – not a good beginning!
As I was cleaning my hand, I looked up and in a cage, with two other cats, was this little tabby cat, rubbing against the bars and staring directly at me. At that moment, I realized I wasn’t picking a cat; the cat was picking me. I’ve not regretted my choice and hopefully, she’s not regretted hers:~)
