Whatever it takes, we’re going to spend quality time with our cat Oscar, even when I’m sharing an original song on a Zoom-based Open Mic.

Whatever it takes to share your thoughts and feelings, consider leaving a comment below.

What would it take to show my gratitude to all, including YOU?

  1. Beautiful shots. They tell such a compelling story and are so heartfelt and relatable.

    Did you make the HOPE sign (third picture in this post) or did you find it somewhere? I love it.

  2. I like to take what you give, Ann.

  3. Whatever it takes… you always share joy and beauty, love and laughter.

    And for that I am always grateful.

  4. What a visually entertaining and moving post! Thank you. I enjoyed your Triggers performance very much. Oscar’ newish cut will serve him well if the weather turns hot.

    I find your out door pictures very relaxing- Is the dog friendly? Whatever it takes, we never give up hope, for that’s what keeps us going.. Have a nice day, Ann.

    • The dog is friendly enough to not bark when I walk by and take photos. Thanks for the hope in your nice comments.

  6. That’s what life’s all about. Happy to be riding with you!❤

  7. loved your old/new song, and oscar hanging in, and hope to be found in all kinds of places. and sauce.

  8. Whatever it takes isn’t how I am, I am too laid back

  9. To do whatever it takes with whatever I have. I love your trigger song, my friend. ♡ฅ(ᐤˊ꒳ฅˋᐤ♪)♡

  10. Lovely photos. Hope is a powerful force, isn’t it? Did you and Michael make the Mac & Cheese?
