My Precious Whiskers, beloved husband,
I know you are lonely tonight and the bed will seem large and empty, Take these poor words and hold them dear, for they are from me to you;

If ever two were one, then surely we.
If ever Cat were lov'd by wife, then thee.
If ever wife was happy in a Cat,
Compare with me, ye kitties, if you can.
I prize thy love more than whole Mines of gold
Or all the riches that the East doth hold.
My love is such that Rivers cannot quench,
Nor ought but love from thee give recompense.
Thy love is such I can no way repay.
The heavens reward thee manifold, I pray.
Then while we live, in love let's so persevere
That when we live no more, we may live ever together.
(with thanks to Anne Bradstreet)
Our time apart won't be long my darling and in hearts we're never apart!

Dad & mom both had told the Drs. about me acting like I am in pain most times. Mom and the Secretaries there has a joke going as mom told them "Darn, I forgot to bring my sleeping bag & pillow!" with their reply "Your suite is waiting!" Mom says it's good to laugh with all that's going on. Tehehehe!!!!

♥ Mom's Aunt Joyce had called & said she has also been diagnosed with Throat Cancer and that it's Malignant. She is supposed to start Radiation soon plus take Chemo pills.

Hey Whiskers!
Happy Easter to you too! Glad to hear Dad is doing great! That is wonderful news. Yes we were expecting to hear soon that Wicket had become an angel. We are glad he is no longer suffering. Poor kitty went through so much fighting to stay with his family. Too bad kitties don't live as long as peoople but I guess that gives people a chance to rescue more kitties. He will always be in our hearts & memories. Hope Mom has a great time visiting with Gma. Leaving a vote. Peace & love. Have a purrfect evening. Kitty Kisses. Anderson

Hi K Whiskers
           A Jelly Bean Poem

Little jelly beans
Tell a story true.
A tale of our Father's love
Just for me and you.

GREEN is for the waving palms.
YELLOW is for the sun above.
BROWN is for the soft earth where
People sat hearing of HIS love.

A SPECKLED bean for fish and sand.
RED for precious wine
and BLACK is for the sky as He died on the cross

PURPLE's for the sadness of
HIS family and friends,
and is for the glory of the
Day HE rose again.

Now that you've heard the story
You know what each color means.
The story of our Father's love
Told by some jelly beans.

So every morning take a bean
They're really very yummy.
Something for the soul, you see
And something for the tummy.

Wishing you a happy & blessed Easter!

Awww...that's so mice of you and your furriends to help mom pack. I know that she greatly appreciate your assistance and supervision. We were really saddened as well to hear of Wicket's passing; poor catmom, Lynn. She's been through so much the past couple of years. Mom is on call today as her department is closed for the holiday. She left this morning and hasn't returned. We'll be glad when she's done for the day. Tell mom to have a safe and great trip. happy Easter.

Hi K Whiskers
Thank you for coming to my birthday celebration on the 16th & for the scrumptious angel food cupcakes with whipped cream icing & catnip bubbles you brought along. I'll think of you each time I take out the wand to blow bubbles sweet furiend!!
You're pawsome & your visit made the day even brighter! Giving you sweet angel kisses & gentle hugs for making me feel so happy & loved!
Here's a cute story I found that I hope will make you smile. Have a blessed & happy Easter!!

Loving purrs,
Angel Cloudy

~The Dragonfly~ (Author unknown)
Once, in a little pond, in the muddy water under the lily pads,
there lived a little water beetle in a community of water
beetles. They lived a simple and comfortable life in the pond
with few disturbances and interruptions.
Once in a while, sadness would come to the community when one of
their fellow beetles would climb the stem of a lily pad and
would never be seen again. They knew when this happened; their
friend was dead, gone forever.
Then, one day, one little water beetle felt an irresistible urge
to climb up that stem. However, he was determined that he would
not leave forever. He would come back and tell his friends what
he had found at the top.
When he reached the top and climbed out of the water onto the
surface of the lily pad, he was so tired, and the sun felt so
warm, that he decided he must take a nap. As he slept, his body
changed and when he woke up, he had turned into a beautiful
blue-tailed dragonfly with broad wings and a slender body
designed for flying.
So, fly he did! And, as he soared he saw the beauty of a whole
new world and a far superior way of life to what he had never
known existed.
Then he remembered his beetle friends and how they were thinking
by now he was dead. He wanted to go back to tell them, and
explain to them that he was now more alive than he had ever been
before. His life had been fulfilled rather than ended.
But, his new body would not go down into the water. He could
not get back to tell his friends the good news. Then he
understood that their time would come, when they, too, would
know what he now knew. So, he raised his wings and flew off
into his joyous new life!

After Pete talked to Neekah Boo, He returned to
the kitchen and told the family that she said the heating pad made her so comfortable that she got a good night’s sleep. “She says she’s feeling better. She still has pain when she walks, but it’s not as bad as it was.”
Pete walked to the table and sat down. He called Flower and the girls over, He said, “Kids. I think we should carry on with our day. Wicket would want us to keep doing what we can to help others. I’m really sad for him and his family, but I know that he’s not really gone, His spirit is all around us and he is in the hearts of all who loved him. Daisy, Tabitha, Liliana, I’m going down to the new apartment site, would you like to ride with me?”
Daisy looked at Talley and asked, are you coming Aunt Talley, or are you too sad?”
Talley wiped her tears and smiled at the kittens, “I’ll be alright. Your Uncle Pete is right, we have to keep doing what we think is the right thing.”
She said, “Flower, since Auntie Angel Maggie needs to leave to go help Wicket, I’ll ask you Mama to drive down to the site too and that way she can bring you back to work on the armoires with Inky, Storm and Bobby. Will that be okay?”
Flower nodded and the family loaded up to go down to the site.
When they arrived, Pete offered to take his sisters, along with the kids, on a quick tour of the construction zone. He handed out safety helmets to his family, finding extra small ones for the kids. They looked adorable. Whiskers pointed them out to Talley, who quickly whipped out her camera, snapping shots of the precious moment.

Whiskers and Talley followed along on K. Pete’s tour with the family. Whiskers paused for a moment to kiss his beautiful wife, bumping safety helmets and then both bursting into laughter!

The crews were busy and the little girls began taking pictures of the kitties as they hung drywall, painted and fit windows. The first floor apartments were beginning to look like homes.
Pearl remarked, “These are going to be beautiful homes. They’re not quite as large as the family’s townhouse, but the layout is similar.” Pearl looked at the plans that Pete had unrolled on the work table in the first apartment.
Pete said, We wanted these to be homes, where families could thrive, raising kittens, caring for elders, we wanted room for love and laughter, we wanted this to be a community of love and caring. These plans are what Ms. Murphy and Raven came up with to accomplish that. We had architects take those criteria and this is what we got.” He pointed to the plans.
Flower came up and said, “Mama, I should be getting back, Bobby said that they would be at the house at ten o’clock and it’s ten till ten now.”
Pearl smiled, “You’re right, Flower. It would be rude of us to be late.”
Flower ran to hug Whiskers and Pete he told them that he would say a prayer for the family of their friend Wicket and that he hoped they wouldn’t so sad for very long. Both Whiskers and Pete hugged him back, and told him that they would see him later when the got home.
Talley led the girls off and began documenting what was being done.
Pete and Whiskers heard a truck pulling up outside and when they went to look, they saw a line of Flatbed trailers with loads of redwood timber waiting to be unloaded. “There’s the siding for the second and third floors” Pete said.
He and Whiskers went out and assembled a crew then they started the crane and began to unload the trucks. Next came loads of roof trusses, and then the many floor to ceiling windows and sliding doors. Pete and Whiskers took turns unloading the trucks and signaling.
Finally the last truck was unloaded and the two of them shut down the crane and climbed into their SUV.
Pete looked around and saw that Talley’s SUV was gone. He took out his phone and called her number. When she answered he asked, “Did you bring Murphy and Raven home with you and the girls?
Talley replied that she had and that He and Whiskers should come home and get cleaned up. Orangie and Whitey had prepared a wonderful Moroccan Chicken Stew with Couscous and salad for dinner and it was almost ready.

Whiskers stomach rumbled and Pete’s followed suit.
They both laughed. Whiskers said, “We never stopped for lunch today. I’m starved!”
Pete replied, “You’re not alone, brother. That stew sounds good let’s go.
They headed up the mountain.
When they arrived at the house Talley hurried over to embrace Whiskers. She hugged him and gave him a kiss. She stepped back and said, “Both of you need showers and clean clothes, dinner will be ready to serve by the time you’re done.”
It was hard to leave the kitchen with the delicious smells of cinnamon, nut mega and roasted chicken, but the boys hurried upstairs.
When Pete returned, Lucy Maggie and Sylvia were there. They were telling the family that Wicket had made the crossing well and was welcomed by every angel. He was healthy and young and in no pain. He misses his mom and his earthly siblings, but his angel siblings have taken him under their wings and they will fly to Maggie Valley tonight and sprinkle his earthly family with healing angel dust to ease their sadness.
Pete went to the study and returned with a cedar box that held two Blessed candles and two candle holders. He gave them to Angel Lucy and asked, “Can you give these to Wicket and ask him to leave them for his mom.”
Lucy took them and told Pete that she would see that he got them.
Talley asked, “Can you stay for dinner?”
Sylvie shook her head, “No we need to get back, there’s a welcoming ceremony at the bridge tonight. Maggie will stay with you, though, she’ll join us after you all go to sleep.”
Maggie nodded and said, “You need comfort too.”
The food was wonderful and Both Whiskers and Pete had second helpings. Whitey had made Peach cobbler and she served coffee and dessert in the living room.
When they finished dessert, Flower took the family to the workshop to show them the new armoires. They were becoming more and more refined. These three were exacting reproductions of 19th century wardrobes.
Whiskers told Flower that he truly was a Master Cabinetmaker.
Flower said that he couldn’t do it without his friends.
Rather than saying their bedtime prayers in their rooms, they all gathered in the living room and prayed as a group. They asked for healing for those in need and comfort for those in mourning. At the end, the kittens added their fervent Amen.
Sleep did not come easily to Whiskers and Talley told him that she would do what her dad used to do, She would know that he couldn’t answer her on the computer, but she would write him every day that he was gone, and he could answer her in his heart. “I’ll know sweetheart, mere distance can’t separate us. Our love is stronger than time and space. She kissed him and snuggled against him. They went to sleep together

Good evening, Whiskers!
Hey, we wish your mom a good trip down to SoCal. We also wish you all a Happy Easter!
Aww, yeah, we are so sad to hear that dear, sweet Wicket crossed the Rainbow Bridge this morning. Mom cried when she read it on CMR. The furamily have been our furiends since we came here. Mom says it is so very hard to make the decision to help a kitty cross over, but sometimes it is the necessary and merciful thing to do.

Many purrs, Neelix

Hi Whiskers
Dish Bottom Phobia, huh? Yep, that was me! No other kitties here seem to be afflicted, but I had it bad. Then Mike would come finish what I left, you know, my security food, and I would get all nervous and ask for more. Then I'd leave security food, Mike would come along and ... you get it. Mike did pretty well out of the deal.

Thanks for the laugh. It's been a rough day, having to welcome Wicket to the Rainbow Bridge. I liked that big guy! He had class and dignity through everything he went through these last few months. -- A. Mallow

Hi Whiskers!
I'm sure gonna miss you my dear furiend. I know you'll be back as soon as your Mom gets home, but I'll still miss you! We like to sit in suitcases, too and yes, no outfit is complete without cat hair on it. Mom uses it all the time...MOL! Everyone knows she has kitties at home! We're saying prayers for your sweet family and pray your Mom has a safe trip, going and coming back.

We were all very sad to hear about Angel Wicket. Mom came online shortly after Mom Lynn posted the announcement and as Mom started to read it to us, she started crying. We all knew it was gonna happen fairly soon, but we just didn't want to believe it would be this soon. Angels Frosty, Moki and Red were there with all the others to welcome him, but he has so many angel sibs, that we knew it would help him a lot to have so many of his family there. He wasn't a bit scared, they said. They went by his page to welcome him to the Bridge and we went by Spongie's page to offer condolences to him, Baby and sweet Mom Lynn. He was such a brave boy, but finally had to tell his Mom that he was just too tired to fight, anymore. God saw his suffering and decided he'd had enough. It's so nice to know that when we cross the Bridge, someday we will have our sibs to help us, too. And that we'll all be reunited with our families someday! Rest in peace, sweet, brave Angel Wicket.

Well, I guess I better say goodnight and let your sweet Mom finish packing, huh? I know she's not gonna want to be reading too much, tonight. So, I'm leaving you a furry vote with love and wishes for a good evening and sweet dreams. Don't forget to help your Dad take care of the family. I hope he'll be able to get closer to Whitey and Orangie while your Mom is gone. See ya, next week, my furiend! Love ya!

Hugs and headbonks,
Mischief

Talley's Phone buzzed and she answered.
she listened for a moment and said, "Thank you Sylvie, I'll tell the family!"
Talley turned and with eyes shining with tears she said, "Wicket has gone to the angels. That was Sylvie, She and Lucy are going to the rainbow bridge to meet him."
She went to Whiskers and hugged him.
Pete said, "he fought such a hard fight, he was a wonderful friend to all of us and especially his Mom Lynn, It all falls on Spongie and Baby to comfort her. Did Sylvie say what they wanted to do about work on the construction?"
Talley said that Sylvie had said that they had laid the work out for the kitties who didn't know Wicket and they would carry on, but that the projects involving the angels, would be delayed. Every Angel In the Empire will be at the bridge to Welcome Wicket and help him adjust!"
Maggie nodded, I'll be leaving as soon as Callie and I finish our menu. I should be back late tonight!"
Whiskers sat down. Tears rolled down his cheeks. Talley patted him saying "I know, I know. Poor mom Lynn. Flower came over and hugged Whiskers knee. He was crying too but he said in his soft sweet voice, "Uncle Whiskers I'm so sorry that your friend went to the Rainbow Bridge. He's not sick any more though!"
Whiskers hugged him back and said you're right little guy! We need to comfort his mom, Spongie and Baby, but we know that he is young and strong and healthy now. Pete wiped his eyes and said "I'm going to call Neekah Boo, I'll let her know what's happened and see how she is. As soon as we know the Memorial service arrangements, we'll get the squadron on alert to bring everyone in."
Pete in a rare show of emotion, said, "I hate cancer! what a filthy evil thing it is!"
He paused, caught his breath and said, "I'm sorry kids, I shouldn't talk that way I'm just upset."
He headed down the hall to call Neekah Boo from the study where he would see her face on the big screen monitor.
The house was saddened and the family came together to comfort one another so that they would have the strength to comfort their dear friends.

you know what i don't understand? if the tv is too loud mom will turn it down. if it's too noisy outside mom will close the windows. she shuts the laundry room door so she doesn't have to listen to the washer and dryer but.....she drags that stupid vacuum around with it going V-ROOOM,V-ROOOM,and doesn't seem to mind. humans are very hard to understand,even when it's mom,MOL!

It is still cool here. We understand that this latest cold front came from the north pole. We hear that it will hard and dry on the west coast which is not good. This weather is sure strange. No cat likes the vac and mom sometimes uses it to make us scat. Mom is happy with the scoopable litter. It is high maintenance but it does it job well. Mom can not believe the size of the clumps. It is sunny here with a cold north wind and only in the 50s. Sending lots of hugs. Purrs...A. Rhuby

Whiskers was amazed when they approached
the construction site. The beams that they had set yesterday were completely covered with massive slabs of concrete, forming the foundation of the first floor. Already teams of kitties were laying pipe in special channels that had been pre-formed in to the concrete slabs. Other teams were running wire through conduits in the electrical ducts.
Talley, who had wanted to join them on the worksite, asked, “Where are the beams you boys set yesterday?”
Whiskers pointed at the huge slabs and said, “Under there. Let’s see if we can walk down there and take a look.”
Angel Lucy saw them and walked over. Whiskers asked if it would be okay to look in the underground garage, and she said it would be alright but that they needed to wear their hardhats. She pointed to a shed that had a sign on the door reading “SAFETY EQUIPMENT”.
They walked over, and signed for hard hats, Safety glasses and gloves. The kitty behind the counter quickly applied name tags and the Royal Logo to their helmets. They thanked him and began to walk over to the ramps leading down into the basement garage. The area was as bright as day and crews were busy painting parking lines on the floor and installing the mechanical components in the bottom of the elevator shafts.
Pete looked up and said, “Talley, there are the beams that your husband I put in place yesterday.”
Talley looked up and said, “They’re massive.” She looked down the length of the structure and added, “Somehow, it looks much larger than I had imagined it.”
Whiskers told her, “I thought the same thing, but when you look at the plans and then the renderings, the design of the buildings, with the stone and the wood, makes it seem to fit in with the landscape, it doesn’t seem to intrude, so much as fit.”
Talley said, “I think you’re right, the Angels designed it to match the Castle and the associated buildings….”
There was a rumble of heavy equipment and Pete said, “I guess we should see what Lucy wants us to work on today.”

They walked back up the ramp in time to see the biggest truck they had ever seen driving on to the site. It carried massive granite slabs that had been cut by magic from the Castle quarry. Angel Sylvia, Angel Lucy and Angel Winslow, stood by and waited for the truck to stop. Angel Lucy picked up her bullhorn and requested that all workers report to the dining tent, for their morning break. As the workers cleared the site, the angels walked along the perimeter inspecting the foundation sills and the threaded studs sticking up from them. Seeming satisfied, Angel Lucy and Winslow returned to the truck while Angel Sylvie remained in position by the foundation line. Lucy and Winslow raised their paws as if to lift and one of the huge stones rose from the flatbed trailer. Angel Sylvia joined in and the great mass of stone moved slowly and ponderously through the air until it seemed to hover over the foundation. It lowered slowly until the threaded studs disappeared into holes in the bottom. The stone settled smoothly until it was flush and formed the first part of the exterior wall. The next stone had cutouts for windows and it was placed on top of the first. By the time the trailer was empty a line of exterior wall with window and door openings had been set in place.
Pete shook his head, “That’s amazing!”
The truck rumbled away heading back to the quarry. Lucy raised her bullhorn and called the workers back from their break. The activity at the site resumed again, crews of workers carried studs into the enclosed space and began installing wooden studs on the interior side of the stone walls. Dry wall and plaster would be installed over these studs after wiring and plumbing had been fitted.”
Whiskers, Talley and Pete walked over to Lucy and asked what she wanted them to do. She thought a moment and said, “Talley would you mind using your tablet to take photographs of the construction. We want to document every facet of construction.” Lucy felt in her pocket and handed Talley a memory card. “I took these with my phone yesterday, and I’d like you to create a file in The FSC computer where everyone can upload photos of the construction. Create it as an album and we’ll go through later and separate it into the various crafts. You know, plumbing, carpentry, electrical and so on. Try to get as many of the workers as you can. I’d like to produce a commemorative book that we can give a copy of to everyone who works on the project.”
Talley agreed, and Lucy said, “Sister, it would be great if you could take this project on and be the leader of a team.”

Talley nodded, “I’ll bring my Camera tomorrow and some very able assistants.”
Whiskers saw Inky carrying studs and battery screw driver and waved. Inky, with paws full, shouted a greeting back.
Lucy said, “Pete, Whiskers would you mind going up to the quarry and help select some stone to cut? We’d like to try and match the castle exterior as closely as possible. You have a good idea. Get with the quarry foreman and he’ll go with you and mark the pieces you two point out.”
Pete asked “Can we catch a ride to the quarry?”
Lucy gave him a set of keys and pointed to a four seat ATV parked by the equipment shed. “You know where it is right?”
Pete said, “I think so, I’ve seen it from the air.”
Lucy smiled, “Don’t get lost little brother!”
Pete and Whiskers headed out.
It was chilly and both Whiskers and Pete were shivering by the time they arrived at the quarry. The foreman an older, lean, strong tabby named Ralph met them as they dismounted from the ATV. He held out his paw and introduced himself. He said, “The Boss, Lucy, called ahead and said you’d be up to help us pick some slabs. We’re working in the same section that the Castle Stone was cut from, and it is some very hard rock. If we had to cut it by hand, like we used to, well…. let’s just say the new apartments wouldn’t be finished in our lifetime.”
Pete asked, “How do you cut it now?”
He shook his head, “The angels do it and I’ll be darned if I know how. They never break a slab and it looks polished when we lift it out. We mark the slabs and insert the lifting eyes and when we come back in the morning what we marked is on the trailers.”
Whiskers said, “The Angels do some remarkable things.”
Ralph nodded vigorously, “Ain’t that the truth. Say…. Have we met before, both of you fellers look real familiar.”
Pete said, “I don’t think so, Ralph. I’m pretty sure I’d remember you. It’s a pleasure to meet you now, though.”
Ralph was still thinking about it and a light came into his eyes, He took several coins from his pocket. Looked through them and looked at Whiskers, “Young feller, you’re a dead ringer for this King on this catbuck, don’t that beat all.
Whiskers smiled, “It sure does.”
He thought about it and looked at Pete he said, “and you, you look like… say are you two related to these Kings?”

Pete said, “Both Whiskers and I were Kings in the past now we’re just two guys trying to make things better for the kitties we encounter as we go through life.”
Ralph took their paws and said, “I’m right pleased to meet both of you. You really gonna climb down there and mark stone?”
Pete said, “Yep, we sure are!”
They climbed down the ladder it was good forty feet down to the working face and when they got down they walked along studied the pattern and color of the stone. It was harder than Pete thought it would be when the pattern matched, the color might be too light or too dark. It took hours but finally between the two of them they had marked enough slabs to finish the stonework for the first floor of the apartments the school and the community center. With Lucy’s list complete, they climbed back up the ladder and as they prepared to leave Ralph came to them. He offered his paw and said, It was a pleasure meetin’ you fellers. Any time you want work in the quarry come and see me.”
Pete and Whiskers thanked him. As they rode away on the ATV Whiskers said, “Well, it’s good to know that if this retired royalty thing doesn’t work out for us, we’ve got some employment options.”
Pete laughed, “That’s true, but we both hold commercial pilot’s license we could always apply at Cat World Airways.”
When they arrived back at the construction site Lucy looked at the selections that they had made and said. “Thanks Whiskers, Thanks Pete. If you’ll wait just a bit, I’ll get Talley and we’ll all transport up to the house. We’ll wash up and visit Neekah Boo and drop off the heating pads. Then we can come back and get ready for hockey. I imagine you’re both tired after climbing up and down the working face in the quarry.”
Pete admitted that he had used muscles that he hadn’t used in a while.
Talley was smudged and dusty but happy; she had her Canon Camera and her camera bag. She’d called Angel Maggie and had her transport it to her. She said, I just thought we might as well get good pictures.”
Whiskers kissed the smudge on her nose and Lucy transported them back to the house. After showers they all met downstairs to have tuna salad sandwiches and iced tea.
Pete called Neekah Boo and she said it was fine for him to drop in.
Sylvie had picked up the special heating pads and Pete, Whiskers, Talley were all transported to Maggie Valley by Angel Sylvie. They spoke with Spongie and gave Mom Lynn hugs. Wicket was sleeping so they paused to share a prayer with the family and left the heating pad. They transported to Colorado, arriving at Neekah Boo’s house in the midst of heavy snow flurries. Pete went up to visit. He and fatty plugged the soft snuggly pad in and helped Neekah Boo ease on to it. Pete slowed her the controls and adjusted it.

Soon Neekah Boo smiled and said that it felt very good on her legs. She was covered with her quilt and looked tiny and sweet. Pete hugged her gently and read to her from her book of poems in moments she was asleep.
Pete told Fatty if she needed anything, she was to Skype him instantly and she said that she would.
Talley and Whiskers had stayed downstairs with Neekah Boo’s mama and they hugged her softly when they were ready to leave.
At last they were back at the house. Murphy and Raven had been at the shelters, helping families select furnishings for the new apartments. They had created folders for each of the families that contained the selected colors for the rooms, the furniture, the linens for beds and bathrooms and even a selection of houseplants and decorative items. Flower and his friends had finished three more armoires today and the whole family felt the pride of hard work well done.
Talley had told called Pearl and asked if the kittens could be excused from schoolwork tomorrow to help her at the construction site. Pearl said that they could, that she had given them assignments that they could complete in the evenings or on Sunday. Tomorrow she would have three more photographers helping her.
Orangie and Whitey were preparing Beef Stew which they would cook in the slow cooker. With it they would serve a large salad and a southern treat, Banana pudding which even now was chilling in the fridge.
The girls all gathered their hockey gear and prepared to transport to the arena!
Hockey was exciting; the kittens told their aunties that they were going to cheer so hard that they would surely win. Talley believed that they would cheer very hard but told them that winning was really fun, but that the important thing was learning teamwork and having fun. She reminded them that it was a game. Whiskers was proud of his beloved wife. Even coming into the playoffs she remembered how important it was to teach the kittens about perspective.
Winning was fun, and the whole family had fun, both teams won their games and were in the playoffs. When they returned home the house smelled of rich beef stew and fresh baked apple pie. The family dined in the quiet enjoyment of one another’s company. They finished with apple pie and coffee. By the end of the meal Flower was so tired that his eyelids were drooping. His sisters were no more awake, Whiskers and Pete took them up and tucked them in their beds. Mitch and Pearl sat on the sofa in the living talking quietly.
Talley yawned and Whiskers followed suit. They needn’t speak, they rose as one and made their way up to bed.
Pete closed the book of poetry that he had been reading, poured a small cognac to take up to bed. He bid Mitch and Pearl goodnight, and headed up to his bedroom. What a day, satisfying but exhausting.

Good night handsome kitty! How are you and Mom doing?

Mom's Grandma & Aunt are coming home tonight and they will be staying to spend Easter with us. They live in another city and it's been quite long since we saw them last time. We've spent most of the day helping Mommy with the laundry and the cleaning of the house.
It was a sunny autumn day, windy but still warm. We now told Mom everything looks purrfect and that she can relax for a while and help us with our blogs.

I hope Auntie & Grandma bring us some Easter treats! He, he! I remember Auntie likes coming our hairs, so I will enjoy having her home.

I hope you all have a very blessed Wednesday and a super nice week too!!
With lots of love,
from your friends always,
Q.Lola & all the Buenos Aires Kitties!!

Come visit me, Simba & Mrs.Pucca, Queen Memories, Angels Blackie & Lady Lucy, Sally ♥ Felix, Queen Lola - VOTE MEEKO & A.BOOTZ COTM! & Willow & Charlie.

Sorry that I've been missing lately but mom hasn't gotten back into the swing of things since her vacation. Her work schedule has changed, not for the better, so we will pounce by as often as mom's time allows. Hope all is well with you and your lovely family. Love that picture of Tally below. Happy Wednesday.
