43. You are a better woman than I, Gunga Din. You are an inspiration to us all with this post.
You take care. We all lose many pets in the course of our lifetimes, but we have no choice but to carry on. I donate to many groups, but less than last year, because of cutbacks in my salary at work.

Don't bless me. Bless you, for what you have done and are doing.

Damned cat is on the bed again, and I am staying up late. Purrcilla didn't sleep with me. This one is going to, obviously, and I'm not used to that. Oh well, guess I will survive.
