Bad News From Home

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.

Oh, Dave, I'm so sorry. I really liked Wanda, and she's a fierce hunter to boot. (((HUGS)))
