Not too much going on the past couple of days. Which is not a bad thing. Kids are enjoying school so far. They finally started getting homework. Here are a few pictures I took on the first day of school last week.

My cousin Colleen also called me with some bad news yesterday. Her cat "C.C" (stands for Cool Cat) had to be put down yesterday. It seems the cats eye started to buldge out of her eye socket and when she took her to the vet and they took an x-ray they said their was an abcess behind her eye and a mass that looked like cancer/tumor and it didn't look good. The cat was almost 15 years old so Colleen, though it broke her heart to do it had to put down her fur baby. I sent her this below:
"C.C - 1992-2006"
To have loved and then said farewell, is better than to have never loved at all. For all of the times that you have stooped and touched my head, fed me my favorite treat and returned the love that I so unconditionally gave to you. For the care that you gave to me so unselfishly. For all of these things I am grateful and thankful.
You took me in when I needed a home and someone to love. All I ask now is that you not grieve for the loss, but rejoice in the fact that we lived, loved and touched each others lives for however long I lived. My life was fuller because you were there, not as a master/owner, but as my FRIEND.
Today I am as I was in my youth. The grass is always green, butterflies flit among the flowers and the Sun shines gently down upon all of God's creatures. I can run, jump, play and do all of the things that I did in my youth. There is no sickness, no aching joints and no regrets and no aging.
I will await the arrival of you my faithful companion and I know that togetherness is forever. You will live on in my heart as I will in yours. Companions such as you are so rare and unique. Don't hold the love that you have within yourself. Give it to another like me and then I will live forever. For love never really dies, and you are loved and missed as surely as I am.
Love, Your Pet In Heaven...."C.C."
