Friday Morning

Taking it all in. This morning I sat on the deck in the early morning, chilled air.  Sun was shining and brightening up the cool air.  

I was listening to the birds.  They are so talkative in the morning.  Hearing people starting their days- running yard machinery or starting their cars.   In the near distance, cars woosh by,as does the occasional truck.  I hear them, but they are background noise.   Airplanes fly over too.   We are near a large airport and I find the sounds of the planes to be normal and in fact comforting.

Buddy, silly little dog, wanders around the yard.   Occasionally he barks at a neighbor.   The best thing in Buddy's little head though, is chasing squirrels.  That little black dog flies like a rocket ship!    When he gets the squirrel to run up a tree, that's one very happy/ excited dog!

I am ready for my next cup of coffee and a breakfast of oatmeal with fruit!

Tigger came into our family as a small, six or eight week old kitten.  He was shy, but very playful.  We adopted Pooh at the same time.

They were not littler mates, but they were best friends.   Pooh died a few years ago, leaving Tigger as the only cat in the house.

Tigger was a little bit past his 17th birthday.

Today, Tigger died.  He was worn our.  He lost interest in eating and was having a rough  time with mobility.

So, this morning, Nick and I said good bye to our sweet, love, our old man cat, Tigger.
