Happy Holidays
Don't think I'll be able to post for a few days so I hope everyone has a great Christmas.  Stay warm!

I walked out to my car this morning and saw almost nothing:
La Mesa, CA fog
You can barely tell that there's a church beyond that stop sign.  I think the closest thing I've seen to this was during a snowstorm while driving through West Virginia on the way to Ohio.  Cool.  Perhaps it's a sign that it will be nice and cool for the roasted chestnuts I want to eat at La Mesa's annual Christmas in the Village.

and then there were three
Tuesday night we had to put our cat Micky to sleep.  It's the first time I've ever had to make this decision, but unfortunately, the efforts that were made to manage his severe kidney failure were not enough.
Micky was pretty well traveled cat.  He found him as a baby the summer of 1992 when I worked at a garden center back home in Maryland.  He spent a year in Virginia with me during my last year in college, moved with me to Denver, went back to Maryland with me, and a couple of years ago, came out to California to live with us.  Micky was fond of what I call the "smackdown"; He would roll on his side and then on his back and I would rub his chin at which point he would stretch his front legs straight back like he was being held up.  He would lay contentedly like this while I rubbed his belly.  He often stared at his food with a look of dissapointment but still wanted to cuddle.
It's strange not seeing him at the door when we come home.  I think even Luna senses he is gone and has been more mellow.  At least he was with me on my birthday on Saturday.

The only time he slept in the Noro Kureyon kitty bed that I made for him (yes, I put him in there):
