Birthday Date with Baunilha

 


 Dear Diary,

It all started when my furend Baunilha said she didn't have a special birthday celebration:

I knew Baunilha from Instagram. She's part of the @CacauBaunilhaSul family. They live in Portugal.  Their names translate into English as Cocoa, Vanilla and South.

Mixing It Up with Country Fairs and Dental Scans

 

Hello Furends and their Pawents. This is Kim, hip-checking Dori and Rabbit and Herman, and the rest of the Wonderpurr Gang aside for a little me time on my own damn blog. I've noticed most of us pet pawrents rarely step in front of the camera, so to speak, but when you're going through a semi-burn out like I've been this past summer... um... year... it's time to mix things up.

Remembering Sadie


Hi everyone, this is Herman!!! coming out of retirement to pay tribute to my bestie, Sadie, the sisfur of my other bestie, Phi. 

When I first joined the Anipals, Phi was one of the very first to welcome me. We clicked as besties pretty fast, despite her being a doggo and me being a kitteh. That’s what I loved about being an Anipal. Species didn’t matter. Heart did. And boy, those Anipals had a lot of heart. I made so many many many furends over the years, but Phi and me, we just completed each other. 


Me and Phi were so close, she even went on my honeymoon with Belle. Belle was not thrilled, but she knew Phi was my bestie, so it worked.

After Phi left suddenly for the Rainbow Bridge, we were all pretty bereft. Phi was loved so much. I worried her mom would never recover. But then one day along came Sadie, and suddenly the sun started to shine once more.


Sadie possessed all the fun and energy that her angel sisfur had, and she slid into our Anipal Gang like she had been there right from the start. Sadie photographed beautifully, and all the guys had a crush on her. Such a blonde beauty!


And she was so much fun. She was always ready to play our silly games.







But now Sadie has joined Phi Over the Rainbow Bridge. Like Phi, Sadie left suddenly. But that doesn’t mean she is totally gone. She’s made a huge impact on all of us who loved her, and that means she will always be remembered.


Rest in Peace, sweet SusuSadieO. You will never been forgotten!

Remembering 9-11 Twenty Years Later

I remember that morning like it was yesterday.

I worked at a Kentucky law office inside a 200 year old farm house sitting in the middle of 300 acres. It was also a wine vineyard. My employer Joni’s family owned the biz.

There were maybe six of us at work that morning, still in the process of getting our coffee and finding our Tuesday mojo. The secretary to Judge Tackett had her tv on. Her shout had us all running into her office. When the second plane hit the towers, the judge’s wife, also a lawyer, immediately said “Osama Bin Laden.” I had never heard of Bin Laden.

I called my husband at work. He had been in a meeting and hadn’t yet heard what happened. His office occupied the largest buildings in Memphis. His HR director started freaking out to the point where someone had to calm her down.

After watching the panic on tv for an hour, we were sent home. I spent the rest of the week watching the 9-11 tragedy unfold. Every night that’s all America ingested. Every night for months.

We understood Life as we knew it had ended. 

I recently heard a “joke.” 

Knock knock. 

Who’s there?

9-11.

9-11 who?

I cannot believe the younger generation doesn’t understand the impact 9-11 has had on our country, but as for my generation, We will never forget!
