Look, I’m not the first one to say it. This year hasn’t exactly been easy for a lot of people. And here we are, finally at the end of it, at least in the last month of it, and I think we all need to take a step back. (I almost said ‘take a knee’ but now even that has political connotations.)
So, for the rest of 2016, Fun Friday will concentrate on calming, soothing images and ideas. We’ve had quite enough hate and polarization and if you want to get all riled up you’re going to find plenty of places to do that, somewhere else. Then, you know, come back to my blog because I really do appreciate your readership.
To that end, I present a link to Buzzfeed’s “19 Cats Who Are Beautiful Furry Idiots.” If you like cats, you’ll see a lot of friendly, happy cats. If you don’t like cats, you’ll see a lot of small mammals who clearly demonstrate that they’re prepared to lose a battle of wits with a box of rocks. Everyone can find something to agree on, and everyone can come back smiling. That may not have been the way 2016 went for most of the year, but maybe we can all get together and try to make it end that way.
