About a week ago a neighbor brought me a kitten. It was less than 2 weeks old and like a sucker, took it in. We took care of it (didn't even know the sex) and loved it. This morning I had a premonition to take it to the vet. I worked out of town today and driving home I had an increasing feeling of dread. I got home with the intention of taking a shower and then making the vet appointment when Itty was laying splayed out in his bed, unresponsive. I scooped him up and raced to the vet. Itty was near death, a virus had attacked his/her little body. Nothing could be done so I gave the vet permission to end the suffering. I made a little makeshift casket and wrapped him/her in washcloths (we always played 'papoose') and laid Itty in the garden under the pomegranate bush and muscadine vines.
Needless to say I'm a wreak. Please pray, send good thoughts, etc., to us so that this pain will subside.
Goodbye Itty Bitty, I loved you so much for the short time we had together.

I remember the days when they used to put out Christmas stuff the day AFTER Thanksgiving...NOT BEFORE FREAKING FOURTH OF JULY!!! I can also remember when movies were $1.50 to get in and a canned drink was a quarter, so that tells you that I'm fast becoming an old codger. I took a deep breath and decided to brave the premature Christmas cheer.
|Down the aisle shot of all the glass ornaments.|
|Nothing says Merry Christmas like a glass DVD remote ornament. I scratched my head at this.|
|How lovely, the true meaning of peace on earth and good will towards men is epitomized by an iPod and 1000.00 bill ornament. I'm getting teary eyed.|
|Had to blow this one up a bit...looks suspiciously like my Direct TV remote. Save the money and tie a string to your remotes and hang them from the tree and you'll always know where they are.|
|This ranks right up there with the Christmas Pickle, and I do not understand the Christmas Pickle. I understand this even less.|
|You're kidding me, right? Canned goods? Where's Alan Funt, this has got to be a joke. For those not old enough, Alan Funt hosted Candid Camera, possibly the best television show that has ever been.|
|Tampons...they made tampon ornaments, with applicators. (I think that these are cigars though, instead of any feminine product, at least I hope!)|
|Yes, that says 113 degrees. Hotter than sin but not half as fun.|
