Friday, April 13, 2012


I checked the calendar this morning....

And much to my surprise I found 
that today is 

Some people think it's an unlucky day....
but really it isn't....

I did find out something interesting though....

Did you know that if the first day of the month
falls on a Sunday....
 there will be a Friday the 13th
that month....

Have a fantastic weekend, 
my friends!

Later -- Remington --
did I hear someone say football?
-- out!
We have sad news....
Yesterday morning we found 
 Mr. Ripley's mommy
had passed away.

We found her laying in the 
entry way to the house we
have for the feral cats outside.
She would come by every once in awhile. 
There were no wounds so we don't know 
what happened.
Beth said Scotch must have 
wanted to come home
where it was safe.
That is where she was born and that
is where she gave birth to Mr. Ripley.  

And at daybreak we looked out 
and she was laying in the entry --
she didn't make it in the house.
We cried.

Rest In Peace, Scotch....

We're so sorry to learn that Mr. Ripley's cat mama has crossed the Bridge. Would Mr. Ripley approve of our including Scotch in the April edition of Our Rainbow Friends, do you think?
