In honor of National Cat Day yesterday I would like to share my favorite cat fact.
Cats don’t meow to other cats in the wild. They only meow to humans. This cracks me up because it means that since the beginning of time people have talked to their cats. So much so that the animal eventually evolved to TALK BACK.
Dogs may be awesome, but cats are potty trained early, and have realized that they don’t have to fetch or sit or stay or sniff out IEDs on battlefields. They just have to throw humans a meow every once in awhile and we will provide them everything they need.
They are heroes.
I just found out the 3rd Edition of my first book is out and for sale! I do so love NonRunner's, everything that led me to writing it, all the places it ended up taking me. I added some content to this new version and wanted to share an edited down version of my favorite new chapter - An Epilogue to My Epilogue.

But one on one, I enjoy hearing people’s stories. And lately I’ve been entertained by the stories of the various people who deliver stuff to my house all day.
In addition to writing about baby poop and crawling marathons, I also started a nonprofit awhile back. We've kicked a tremendous amount of ass in a very short amount of time with our little charity. Visit www.throwingstarfish.org to learn more!
The Throwing Starfish Foundation was founded in 2018. In just one year our small nonprofit has accomplished so much.
We are dedicated to serving the most vulnerable in the community. We have organized many different projects that fall under that mission. We provided meals for homeless women and children. We assembled and distributed hundreds of Comfort Bags to agencies who work with fo...
