Thank you, somebunny. I've been reading here off and on to keep up, and it's good to be part of the DC community again. Hope you are well.

Yup, I haven't travelled since they made passports mandatory for cross border travel and I have never been outside North America. So this is my first passport. But we have a passport office quite close to us.

LOL, if you can sneak yourselves on the boat and don't mind sleeping on the couch, floor or balcony, you are all welcome to come.

Cheryl, thanks. It is still a long ways away, but getting it booked today was very exciting. I am so glad you and your kitty are better. Being so sick and having a hurt furbaby are both difficult situations but to have to deal with them at the same time is rough. Big hugs to both of you.

Glad you're feeling better Cheryl. That is a nasty flu that's going around. Take it easy until you are fully recovered.

About the time I got sick, my poor little kitty, Blackee, was attacked in our own back yard by another cat. As he tried to retreat from the fight (he's almost 13 years old) he was bitten pretty bad in several places and had to have surgery. ...
Sounds like both you and Blackee have had a rough time lately. Glad you're both feeling better.

Thank you LP and taxlady. Yes, this flu going around has been a nasty one, that's for sure. I've been taking it VERY easy, and my daughter has been helping to take care of me. She's amazing. I've finally started getting my appetite back and cooked a real meal yesterday.

I'm sorry I haven't been in here but my time with Mamma is becoming short. I've been recording her life story and typing it all out. I'm also working on DA's life story as well.

I'm sorry I wasn't here, and I still have very much to do with these stories and history. It's crucial to preserve these memories.

Carl and I broke up. He wanted more than I could give and we decided to just be friends. I wear his ring upon my right hand, as he said to. He still visits and he's a great friend to me. He was here tonight for dinner and he'll be back on Saturday. I'm not brokenhearted or devastated. I think he saw of my life and it perhaps was too much for him.

But he's a great friend, and I think it's best. Laki agreed also! There are no worries here.

With love,
~Cat

It was a very hard decision to make but I gotta look at everything involved. I love Cat. That won't change but we're gonna go in different directions. She's my best friend and my buddy, and so I hope y'all aren't mad at me.

She brought this up, we talked, and I was pretty upset but Cat's common sense came in and she was right.

I won't abandon her, y'all. She's my best friend. It's just that right now our lives are real different and Cat has to do what she's gotta do and me too.

I love her, but I gotta let her go.

I'm sorry.

Carl

I know how much work goes into a Degree. Poo has two Masters Science degrees. And he worked his butt off. For the first one he graduated Magna *** Laude.

You don't need to apologize. You and Cat come from two different worlds. And right now she has so much on her plate, that I wonder if she can do it all, like she wants it done. She is a wonderful girl, and if it was meant to be, it will happen. If not, you have met and treasured someone very special.
