Some gave all

Hello, Slashers! Memorial Day weekend here in the States, which usually means barbecues and a day off work. Since I have Monday off and am, in fact, attending a barbecue, that's exactly what it means for me. :D Well, and the fact that I am indebted to the military men and women who gave their lives for my freedom. I hope everyone remembers that while drinking their beer and scarfing their burgers.

My life has recently been pleasantly disrupted by the arrival of two kittens. I lost my 15 year old kitty two years ago, and his 17 year old sister just passed this January. I was a cat person without a cat for the first time in nearly two decades. Then, four weeks ago, Johnny Ringo and Calamity Jane were at an adoption fair and I fell in love. Their names used to be something like Broadway and Lotus and I was like huh? How do shelters come up with these names? These two are clearly meant to be named Ringo and Calamity.

So I have kittens, and although I try as hard as I can, I can't read their thoughts like my friend Alex Myers can in Keeping Karma and Teaching Topaz. Man, if there ever was a talent I wished to have, it would be that one. If you don't know Alex, Dylan, or Karma, go check them out. Cute boys and cute animals.

Have a lovely holiday weekend if you're stateside, and a lovely non-holiday if you're not. Remember those who gave their lives while serving.

It's been delightful so far, my dear. And if you had Facebook, you'd know this was old news by now. ;)
