Major Bummer! I called home from Sri Lanka and could hear in Margaret's voice that something was wrong. Apparently, two days ago, Wanda the cat was hit by a car and was found in a neighbor's yard. She's the cat featured near the beginning of my blog, back in June or July. I was shocked and dumbfounded, as Wanda seemed too sharp to allow that to happen. My theory is that it was a hybrid car that did her in. I say that because she grew up near busy intersections (46th and Fremont Ave in Seattle) and never got in trouble. She was used to traffic. Well, I should stop with that blathering, as I'll only get more depressed. I know it will really hit me when I return home in two and a half weeks and not have her greet me.
That enough for me for now. The ship will be leaving Sri Lanka early tomorrow morning. Might as well sign off.
