    Aunt Bertha Day!

    Today is or was Aunt Bertha's birthday, so be extra kind to your critters today, and slip them a bit of treat, as she always did! She was my Great Aunt, and born in 1905. When she was young, her strict Episcopalian family never had a birthday party for her if her birthday fell during Lent, so years like this were big birthdays for her!

    I am sure she got quite a welcome at the Rainbow Bridge when she died, as she loved and spoiled many dogs over her lifetime, from Lorna Doone the Scottie when she wa a young woman, to Brownie, Togie the yellow Lab-colored Beagle mix, and Peppy the Beagle as well as Fluffy, a giant yellow fluffy likely Maine Coon mix, also known as the cat who stomped - unlike normal kitties he was so big you could hear his footfalls when he walked across the floor!

    I meant," said Ipslore bitterly, "what is there in this world that truly makes living worthwhile?"
    Death thought about it.
    "Cats," he said eventually. "Cats are nice."

    To know just when the hands will stop - on what day, or what hour.
    Now is the only time you have, so live it with a will -
    Don't wait until tomorrow - the hands may then be still.
