Tuxie Tuesday on Wednesday

Hi Every-buddy:
Well, our original problem (an unstable network connection) is still not solved after a new system board, a new harddrive, and a new Operating system and drivers, but I am going to start posting again anyways, because I am tired of Momma's complaining.

And we have lots of important news, like today's Tuxie Memoriam.

Last week, Granny and Poppa had to say goodbye to my cousin Oreo, and they helped her on her way to the Bridge. I introduced you all to Oreo last summer. My momma picked out Oreo at the shelter when Momma was a Girl-Bean, and Oreo was only 8 weeks old. She reached her long kitten arms out of her shelter cage and told my momma,
"Pick ME!!!"
so Momma did. Oreo was a very smart and determined kitty, and she lived a long, full life. This June she celebrated her 20th birthday. Momma says that is, like, a squillion people years. So even though we are all sad that it was time for Oreo to go to the Bridge, we are very proud and impressed with her for being such a Tough Cookie for 20 years.

This is Oreo playing as a young kitty, and Oreo last year at 19.
