    Flowers for the boys

    Every year at Christmas when Sherbie was still with us, I would put a Christmas decoration on his outside shelter - "The Little Red Cat House" that I made for him after his buddy O.C. passed.

    Today I was in the dollar store picking up baby diapers (Um - I mean panties ) for Myndi since I now have to keep them on her at night and when I leave the house for more than a couple of hours. Anyway, I walked past some holiday decorations and flowers, and the thought hit me that I should maybe put something holiday-ish on the grave. So I picked up a couple of flowers and stuck them in the ground at the head of the marker. When O.C. passed back in 2008, he was cremated, and I chose to bury his cremains with Sherbie when he passed last June. Together forever now!

    Here's a pic - I don't think I ever posted one of the marker after my son completed it. Anyway - just had to share a little of sentimental, softy me!

    Merry Christmas, Sherbie & O.C. We love and miss you - the orange partners in crime.

    Lovely. Thank you.

    "That's the power of kittens (and puppies too, of course): They can reduce us to quivering masses of Jell-O in about two seconds flat and make us like it. Good thing they don't have opposable thumbs or they'd surely have taken over the world by now." -- Paul Lukas

    Awwww. Not original, already been said, but that sums it up. That photo of the 2 of them is sweet, and knowing they are together again is lovely. Thanks for sharing the marker, well done.
    Thank you Karen, for fixing my siggy!
