Missing large

Cat staff since 12 when a teacher gave me one of litter. Once married a cat that resembled the first, came up to the porch to join a party and stayed for 12 years. Of the 11 who have allowed us to serve, 10 have been rescues, and 6 Siamese(3 chocolate point, 2 chocolate Applehead, and 1 lilac). The first of the chocolate points was named by a rescuer - Cafe au Lait, and the Cafe name has continued in Cafe Latte, and Cafe Mocha. The rescues have not been sought but either given to us or came on their own. They seem to know when there is a vacancy and show up to fill it. While we mourn those that are gone, they are only physically gone. We still giggle over a roast dragged halfway across the floor, or pathetically meowing strained on a neighbor's roof only to be at the food dish minutes later. Same strained pathetic cat the next day. After a discussion with her about the neighbor cutting down the dogwood she used to get on the roof(he hated cats), she never climbed upon a roof again.

    Carol did hit home with today’s. What do I do with so many memories. I can’t always keep them. What am I doing – giving them to people who will love them. Giving back to children of those who give the things to me to let them know how much I loved their family members and wanted to share the memories with them. Most often they are not aware of how family members had touched others and thanked me.

    Sandpaper washing hurts. Fortunately, the two current cats do not wash, kiss or lick.

    Let’s see – 12 hours recording, 1 hour for three meals and a snack, that leaves 11 hours for sleep, the comic strip, committing to the studio, but hey you can sleep there, so what is your problem?Not sure how you are able to get everything done in 24 hours. You need to take a break so that the recording does not suffer, you strip does not suffer and most of all you.
