    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 everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven.
    Ecclesiastes 3:1
    The clock of life is wound but once and no man has the power
    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.
