Just So You Know

Let me start this by saying if at any time you read a message that compels you to a response, by all means... feel free to continue the learning. You DO NOT have to leave your real name or any name for that matter. When you click "post a comment" or however it reads, you have 3 options. Once on the actual comments page, you'll see prior replies as well. Then there's the 'leave a comment' field. Under that are CAPTCHA and 'choose an identity' (name) options. CAPTCHA is designed to slam SPAM as well as let me know a human is posting vs. a computer generated response. Again, I do not consume beef nor pork so SPAM is not welcomed. Even a photograph of it bothers me. Ok, not really but you get my point and hence you will see the moderation message when you've finalized your post. The identity/name options are as follows:

1) Log-in using (drop down menu for those registered with those services)

2) Nickname and URL - allows you to choose any name and/or link your site to it

3) Anonymous (you can use it but I still have the right to decide if it gets published publicly or not - GOOD FOR ME - YAY!!)

Rest Peacefully Shadow

I am so sad tonight as I try hard to get early today's unfortunate event out of my head and try to reat. As we, a car of 2 adults and a 12 yr old, where on our way to the Pearls and Ivy Educational Foundation's "Martin Luther King, Jr. 80th Birthday Celebration at the Music Center at Strathmore", we lost a fur life tonight. As we pulled out of the driveway, there was a gasping thud and the evening never looked up really. As we mingled with dignitaries, took photos, listened to award recipients and even snacked while enjoying a live jazz musician, my heart and mind was on the child owner of the the cat who is now in kitty heaven. His spirits were so down as he recalled that the "Mom" gave birth to her children on a Thursday as today was. The Former NAACP President Honorable Kwasi Enfume gave a wonderful oral narration as my hometown's Symphony Orchestra complete with the Soulful Symphony and backed with a youth choir/ All of whom gave a stellar performance that commanded several standing ovations. There was also a winner of the best Rev. Dr. Martin L. King, Jr. story on hand to give her recall of meeting him as a mere shy child.

All of this could not take away the thump sound I had in my head not the sight of looking back out of the rear window to see the mother cat's 3 fur children surrounding her on the cold ground. I was too stunned to move much less gather it up and put it on the grass or even wrap it in a towel. I'd been there before years ago and wished never to return. While driving to work with a then boyfriend, a cat rain in front of my car. All I remember is crying my eyes out and him taking the wheel really fast to avoid damage to us. I had Prentis back then and I recall getting off that morning and rushing home to hug him. Another time I was driving late and a dog got caught under my Mitsu Eclipse. I have not a clue how I got home but I do recall that dogs squealing and it lasted for what seemed forever. I did try to get out and see if he was ok. He growled at me and I got back in the car and watching him ship off. I don't do well, as you can tell, with hit animals as I'm waaaaay to sensitive. I'll probably be up all night long now with this playing in my head for !?!?!

If you don't hear from me, try not to worry. I just need some rest and if I'm getting no sleep... I'm sure that won't help.

Rest Peacefully Shadow!! SniffSniff She was a fun, energetic and very warm little fur soul. At least I'll have her lil fur kids to look at in memory of her.
