Feline Fans

I wonder if Bernadette Peters would be offended to learn she has feline fans.  I recently found her album I'll Be Your Baby Tonight and have been playing it.  My cats seemed to appreciate it.  I didn't know how much until Molly was yelling at me this afternoon.  I started playing the album again.  The cat calmed right down and laid down in her bed to listen.

I found this video of Bernadette singing a lullaby for dogs.  Maybe she wouldn't mind feline fans.

Myself I always enjoyed Ms. Peters on the Carol Burnett Show and was sorry when she seemed to disappear from broadcast television.

Best Aspect of New Job

In the second half of January of this year, I began working as a client service representative, a job that I've officially never had before.  For one of the country's largest health insurance companies, I help physicians' offices obtain authorization for diagnostic imaging procedures.  I enjoy the job more than I thought I would.  I enjoy receiving phone calls from across the country, even Aiea, Hawaii!.  I like being called "Miss Debra" or "Miss Debbie" by Southern callers.  An appreciable number of my ancestors lived in the South. Some people are very appreciative.  The thanks I receive seems to make up for the times when I should have been thanked in the past and I never was.

Some of the callers live in the same areas that my ancestors did.  Waiting for the computer's screens to advance I used to make little comments about them, but it affected the speed and number of calls I handled, so I had to stop.  However, yesterday I had a very nice woman with the same name living in the area my grandmother's family came from, so I had to say something.  I have talked with some very nice people and I wished I could continue talking with them, but the demands of my job prevent me  from doing so.
