My Cat Brought Me an Offering
I was in my office this morning (as I am most mornings) and I needed to go in the house to refill my water. As I exited my office door, one of our cats, Ebon (which I’m pretty sure he’s claimed me as his human) was right there…with an offering. He had, in his mouth, the lower half of a squirrel. When I walked back to my office, I found he had placed the offering right at my door. I shot a little video of him and his prize. At the end of the video, UPS pulled up and Ebon was a bit cautious. While I was fetching the package from the UPS driver, Ebon took his catch and headed over the fence and into the back yard. I guess he wanted to make sure that big brown monster on the road didn’t get his kill. Later on, however, he brought it back to my office door.
Donovan was born and raised in the deep south of South Central Georgia, roughly two hours from the Georgia-Florida line. His father was a guitar player, farmer, and eventually blue color worker for GM. His mother suffered from Scleroderma starting a few years after he was born, so she became a home maker. Growing up as an only child, Donovan’s interest included music (though he really never learned to play anything) and anything dealing with technology, but specifically computers.
He has spent his entire life involved with computer technology either as a hobby or as a career. In his middle to late teens, he ran a BBS (electronic bulletin board system – the precursor to the modern day Internet). He learned about networking computer systems, building computers, and communication technologies as part of his career.
Later in life, he fulfilled his dream of running his own ISP (Internet Service Provider) when he was hired first as the Network Manager and eventually the General Manager of the Telecommunications Department for the City of Tifton, known as CityNet.
Today he runs his own IT business and has been podcasting in some form or fashion since 2011.
