Memorial Monday-Thinking of Friends

Mom had a tough few days at work last Thursday and Friday. Lots of good friends and co-workers lost their jobs. She has been pretty blue since and hasn't helped me blog. So when we were catching up, I was saddened to learn about my crabby friend Bonnie. She taught me how to correctly treat Kavan. I'm going to really miss her. (Thanks Zoolatry for the wonderful graphic)

And I'm very thankful Gree is doing better, and I'm purrin for Mu Shue. I could feel the hugs going around this weekend, even though we didn't really participate. So this Memorial Day, in addition to honoring those that have fought and died for our country, I'm remembering all my cat blogosphere friends, here and at the bridge. And Mom is remembering all the great colleagues she has worked with over the years. Its a day for reflecting on what is important.
