This is an odd weekend around here. Sue and I are almost never apart, but we are this weekend, and it feels a bit strange. Now, when I say we're never apart, we do give each other lots of space, but I can wander over to her work corner almost any old time and say hello.
But she's off to our brother-in-law's memorial this weekend, and it seemed best for me to stay home. This is for cat reasons, believe it or not. We didn't think our old girl could be alone for the weekend, particularly when those could might be able to drop in to tend to her are also on the road with Sue.
I know it is odd to give up a weekend for a cat, but she's old and has needed vet care already in her short stay here. So, here I am.
And here she is in a video. See how an old, fat cat has to work herself up for a jump onto our chairs.
But she is a sweetie and likes lap time — a lot. She's been here almost a month now, and I am somewhat surprised that she has made it this long. She still needs a laxative daily to help her along, poor thing.
This ↓ is where she lives, more or less — on the corner of the couch. She can go days without bothering to come upstairs for a visit, but she does go and sleep by the patio door sometimes where she might catch a bit of sun.
I did contribute to Bill's memorial/wake, however, but putting some photos together. I didn't have a lot of photos to work with and mostly poor quality ones at that, but here they are. (BTW you may recall that we also had a memorial last fall, but fractured families and all ...)
Above is a framed 8x10 of some of his qualities and interests. Below is a 13x19 print which pretty much speaks for itself.
A photo of Bill with his daughter (left) and then his granddaughter (right), this weekend being for that side of the family.
Too bad it is necessary to miss the tribute, but I am happy to have contributed something.
