A Street Cat Named Bob

'Since Bob had appeared, I'd made huge strides in my life. For more than a decade I'd been a homeless drug addict. I'd been lost to the world and forgotten what was important in life. Now I'd got myself back on my two feet, but as I put the past behind me, I was still stepping unsteadily into the future. I still needed help in the right direction. Bob was always there to offer guidance and friendship.' James and his street cat Bob have been on a remarkable journey together. In the years since their story ended in the bestselling A STREET CAT NAMED BOB James, with Bob's help, has begun to find his way back to the real world. Almost every day, Bob provides moments of intelligence, bravery and humour, at the same time opening his human friend's eyes to important truths about friendship, loyalty, trust - and the meaning of happiness. In the continuing tale of their life together James shows the many ways in which Bob has been his protector and guardian angel through times of illness, hardship, even life-threatening danger. As they high five together for their crowds of admirers, James knows that the tricks he's taught Bob are nothing compared to the lessons he's learnt from his street-wise cat.

Who am I?

    I can hide in the shell. Who am I?

毎年、イースターの日が違うのでどうしてかなーと調べてみました。イースター(復活祭)は基本的に 春分の日の後の最初の満月の次の日曜日」 に祝われるため、なんだそうです。そして西方教会と東方教会というのがあり、東教会においては今年のイースターは4月12日(日)だそうです。ちなみに来年のイースターは3月27日。ちょっと早めです。
