Your positive philosophical outlook about the whole thing is admirable, but I still think you need a big hug. xoxoAnd if you don't mind me saying so, I think your Grandma was awesome, because if it wasn't for her, there wouldn't be a you!

Real Women Drink Akvavit: I hate to even say it, cuz I don't want to be the Caturday bummer, but I know some of you guys pay attention and will wonder. My Grandma died Tuesday morning at 11:25. She couldn't talk or move, but she could hear us and would make faces or noises to respond a bit, so we made sure at least one of us was with her at all times, so she wouldn't be alone and scared. I had just finished my turn for a 2 hour nap and went to go sit with her so my mom could get a nap. I sat next to her, told her I loved her for probably the eleventybillionth time while I was sitting there holding her hand, she responded a little bit, took a few more breaths and died.Please do not get bummed out or think "omg! what do I say?" (like I do) or hesitate to have fun and raise the basement! I like fun, I am fine, will be fine and we knew this was coming. We are sad and a bit lost, but the last few years were hard, the last couple weeks nightmarish. She actually told me about a week before she died "I'd leave but you won't let me go". Mom and I both told her that when she wanted to go, it was OK, that we'd be sad, but we'd understand and we'd be OK. We are OK for the most part, just not really sure what to do with ourselves and very sad, but at the same time we are happy that her suffering is over. Mom is going on her scheduled vacation Sunday still, because she needs it badly, and we'll figure out who is going to take her and grandpa's ashes back to Norway when we get them back. So, on with life, best we can.Thank you to my Caturday family and all the other Farkers who have given me tons of support, lots of hugs and ear skritches for teh kittehs and pics of things to make me smile. My grandma loved you guize too, even if she didn't understand most of it. lol!Now, on wit teh kritter pics![data.whicdn.com image 500x768]

This is me trying to figure out Windows 8. About the only thing I've been able to figure out is how to post to Caturday.

maynerdkitty: Hope this works, a short video of my kitties sharing some kibble.Link
maynerdkitty: And some entertainment for the kitties.LinkThe biddies came in the mail on Wendsday morning, one did not survive the trip but the rest are looking really healthy and strong. My son identified the free exotic breed as a blue chochin. A large breed with feathers all the way down its legs, they will cover its feet when it is grown. I have named it Frodo.[fbcdn-sphotos-e-a.akamaihd.net image 850x637]

My son was able to get the breed right away because the chicks of this breed are so distinctive. It is a very calm chick compared to the others, he kind of looks like a little penguin next to the others.
I moved them into the little house with my old crippled hen Suzy, she just gave me a WTF look when I started putting them in with her. She pecked at the few that came near her but did not make any effort to attack them. In a few days she should start to mother them. She fostered King George and Esmeralda for me when they were biddies.
