Squirrel

Well this morning I went and met Steve. Steve is the mystery "S" man from a previous post. He is the one that had the infamous "Not at this time" quote! I still see him often and we still flirt like crazy but I guess it is still "Not the right time". But anyways....

I met him and he went with me to the cemetery to visit mom's grave. I didn't want to go by myself the first time because I wasn't sure how I would react. It ended up being fine. It's actually a very beautiful drive out there. It's way out in the country and the trees are changing and it was gorgeous. There are also a ton of sunflowers along the way which I love because my mom loves sunflowers! So it was a good drive with good company and ended up being a good visit. I cleaned the old flowers off and put out some new things. Gotta keep it looking cute and clean and hip! Mom would be so proud!!!

After that we went back to his place and hung out for several hours. I always enjoy time with him. It seems like I kinda lose track of time with him. We start talking and joking around and before I know it five hours have past. We just click well... But again I'm off track here.

Steve has a ton of cats! He lives in the country and his outside cats are rather promiscuous. In fact they need an intervention of some sort really. It's insane how many kittens they have and how often! But anyways there was a new litter of kittens and I was excited to see them. I love new kittens. More so than old kittens...

So we get there and I get out and he tells me where the new kittens are and I go over to see them. And I'm going on and on about how cute the kittens are and how the markings on one are really cool. And then I notice something rather odd. I see that one is a dark brown and just not moving and then I move and look from another angle and realize that it is a dead SQUIRREL!!! Steve was horrified. I think he wanted to crawl under a rock and just die. He kept apologizing like he has some control over his promiscuous and now violent wild cats! I was just thrilled that the squirrel was dead and not just injured and angry! I would have peed my pants if it was still alive and ticked and came at me...

So that is the story of the day.

Wow. He needs to get control of those cats. It's just not right to let them run amok like that and let them constantly be making more babies! Mike's friend Don has this problem. They just won't spend the time or money to get them fixed, and the momma cat has a litter, and then the kittens grow up and start mating with each other, and they birth cats with birth defects, and there's like a million cats in their house! It's really gross.

I'm glad your visit to Mom's grave was a good one. :-)
