It Was 30 Years Ago Today...
We were a coupla crazy kids. It was in his mother's backyard. I had flowers in my hair. We were extremely happy (and so young.) In some ways it does "seem like only yesterday," and in other ways it does seem like a long long time ago. A lot of water under the bridge.
Thirty years has taught me to go pick out my own flowers. I got these peachy keen ones at the local florist shop. The florist told me that he had a woman in his shop the other day picking out flowers for her 70th anniversary. I really can't imagine that one.
83 in Cat Years...
I can't believe our "baby" is 17! She looks so tiny in the first photo where she is all curled up. She looks small because she has lost a lot of weight. She sort of stopped eating. I took her in to the vets and they did some tests and figured out that she has cancer. (This has been one of those "for worse..." parts.) We got her on some meds and she's perked up quite a bit and her appetite is back. We'll be able to buy her some time, but who knows how long? This afternoon she was in the backyard trying to hunt down varmints in the tall grass. We are grateful for the reprieve.
We postponed our anniversary trip to Santa Fe. So we're celebrating at home, still in the backyard.
