RIP Kitty Girl

My Karlie cat passed away this morning at home.

I was at her side, giving her pet pets, letting her know that she’s a brave and amazing little girl.

Karlie follows her buddy Edward who passed away 6 months ago to this day. I like to think that they’re chilling together once again.

Thank you one and all for your kind words when I shared Karlie’s prognosis last Thursday.

Five years ago these cats needed a home when their previous human passed away, a Gulf War veteran who lost his own battle due to PTSD.

I’m grateful that folks like you reached out to see if I would take these critters in. While the Karlie & Edward chapter of my life has ended, I’m fortunate for the experience because they gave me immeasurable joy.

Sweet dreams Kitty Girl.

Massive Blizzard to Hit Minnesota

I asked Frankie (via Twitter) what we could expect from tomorrow’s Minnesota winter storm. Here’s what he posted. The Grand Rapids shout outs were a surprisingly nice touch.

Seriously, Frankie’s story is inspiring. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Frankie_MacDonald
