As some of you know, I have not been posting much this summer. I was thinking people my age should not be so busy but it seems the older I get, the more there is to take care of.
Although I am not writing, I have continued to read posts. One of my friends lost her 17 year old pet cat, Sassy. R.I.P. Sassy post is here. I love reading about her pet parties.
Although I don't remember parties for his cats, my grandson also loves his pets. He lost a pet once when he was very little. Through his sobs he repeatedly asked his mama for a rip sign. It took a while for her to understand his request for a rip sign was a grave marker with R.I.P. on it.
My son's daughters got new bunnies - Oreo and Midnight. Aren't they cute? Did you know that you can freeze two litre bottles of water and put in their cages to help cool them during this hot summer weather?
We are still in a drought in the Arkansas River Valley. Not enough rainfall to make hay for the livestock. It will be a very expensive winter for our farmers without any hay to cut.
