Gracie’s Market List

April 5th, 2009


Gracie recently wrote out this market list in the back of the car on the way to school. I helped her with some ideas on what items to include, but the rest (including the spelling) was all her!

Translated, it reads:

My Market List

â–¢ Kumquats
â–¢ Rutabagas
â–¢ Bunches of bananas
â–¢ Pancakes
â–¢ Cupcakes
â–¢ Bubble-gum-flavored oatmeal
â–¢ Dog food*
â–¢ Lots of wine
â–¢ Catnip for Nonny
â–¢ Sushi
â–¢ Tomato
â–¢ Rainbow-colored marshmallows
â–¢ Strawberry

*Here I told her to add “Giraffe food” to the list, but she said we didn’t have one…

You will be missed.

Portrait of a Fred-the-Cat

Almost 15 years ago, in July of 1994, we responded to an ad on the Internet proclaiming, “Kitties need a home“, and thus became the new “parents” of Archie and Veronica.

Although Nonnie was described in the ad as “the precocious one”, it was Archie who quickly proved to be the most outgoing, inquisitive, and entertaining of the two. No visitor to our home ever left without having made friends with Archie.

Today we are greatly saddened to report that, after a long illness, Archie is no longer with us. He will be missed, greatly.
