A Birthday and Summer Solstice....

FIRST -- the Road Warrior Report is delayed due to a VERY important day....stay tuned tomorrow for all the exciting news....

Today is very special because it's my kitty brother Forrest's birthday!  He is 15 years old today.  He said he didn't want a big party just a quiet evening with the family.  Beth said he could have whatever kind of birthday he wanted!  He is really a cool older brother and VERY smart!
Happy 15th Birthday, Forrest!

Also today is Summer Solstice. 
The summer solstice is the longest day of the year.
So I plan to sit on the deck and enjoy this LONG day and then spend the
evening with Forrest and our family!

Later -- Remington --
I love BIRTHDAYS and summer!
-- out! (on the deck)

Happy Birthday Forrest!!! Even at the age of 15th, you still look young and handsome.

Happy Summer Soltice to you all too. Did you get any sun tan, Rem? Be careful, summer sun can be hot and mean too, get some sun tan cream with you whenever you go.

Hey, Rem! That is a very handsome portrait of you! I love the way you are framed by those two pretty yellow flowers, which show off your lovely thick black fur. Give your brother a birthday lick for me!! He has very pretty eyes, indeed! Can't wait to hear about your weekend adventures!

Happy MeowsDay Forrest..you are named after the street we live on. We did not know Minney Sodans were big on Civil War heroes. But we honor your venerable age, and add that we learn a lot from Remington, so your wisdom is passed along.

Happy Birthday Forrest!! I think it is grrreat that you got to Choose what kind of celebration you want. Just think... since this is the furst day of Summer and.. the longest day of the year, you can get in some extra Nap time. How grrreat is that???
Rem, I think a day on the deck is just the thing to celebrate the longest day of the year.

Remington. We are taking advantage of the longest day of the year to try and try and try to catch up from our long absence. You are such a good friend ... you didn't give up on us! We noticed every time you came around and left your pawprints, and it made us sooo happy!

So did the chance to celebrate Forrest's special birthday with him. (He is one cool looking cat!) We hope it was a purrrrfect day. For all of you! You so deserve it.

Hugs and wirey love
