"When the Going get's Tough, the Tough Get Going"
Hi all, isn' it true? Seems like when life throws U a curve, efen when u least expect it, something 'clicks' inside 'n we realize life is a ride, 'n a Magnificat ride it is!~ When a situation is difficult or dangerous, strong peeps work harder to resolve da problems! Mommy is tryin' so hard to find dat strength.
Times r rough, shur, but dey been rough before 'n we jus' keep on purrin' 'n pawin'!~ If we make smart future choices, we can recover from dem storms.
Mom's been kin'a sad too, 'bout gettin' older 'n time's r lil more skeery, but I find dat mommy is NOT too old fur anythin' her put her mind's too! We'll always treasure our times here 'n pawppreciate our grand furiends who we all hold dear! Let's laugh 'n be happy, wif each day we all learn something.
Mom 'n me wants to share dis wif u also, so I believe it's HOW u look at things 'n a Good attitude is what will make our lives mush Better:
This is a story about identical twins. One was a hope-filled optimist. "Everything is coming up roses!" he would say. The other twin was always a sad and hopeless pessimist.
The worried parents of the boys brought them to the local psychologist. He suggested to the parents a plan to balance the twins' personalities. "On their next birthday, put them in separate rooms to open their gifts. Give the pessimist the best toys you can afford, and give the optimist a box of manure." The parents followed these instructions and carefully observed the results.
When they peeked in on the pessimist, they heard him audibly complaining, "I don't like the color of this computer ... I'll bet this calculator will break ... I don't like this game ... I know someone who's got a bigger toy car than this ..."
Tiptoeing across the corridor, the parents peeked in and saw their little optimist gleefully throwing the manure up in the air. He was giggling. "You can't fool me! Where there's this much manure, there's gotta be a pony!" ~ Author Unknown ~
Our Light shines on. We treasure life. We deal wif life, whatefur it brings. Tomorrow is not a given, but Today is a true blessing!
Love to all 'n to all many happy days ahead,
Purrs 'n head bonks o' love,

I has been tagged by my furtabulous furiend, Big Harry!!
Big Harry was tagged by Poppy 'n Poppy was tagged by Tao and this is his message because he invented it (pawsome idea!):::
I invented this new game inspired by Leo Lovebug's Lovebug Tag. We've known a lot of stuffs about each other by playing Lovebug Tag, and by this game we'll come to know about each and everyfurs' families. All u have to do is write about ur family members just like the way I'm gonna do and tag the friends u want to know about! Have fun!!
Mommy - MOM is MOM! She is kewl 'n pawsome 'n loves me furry mush! 'n Know's how to treat me 'n TREAT me wif goodies 'n new snacks lately! YUM! I lubbs Whisker Lickin' Tender Moments Cheekin now but I not like it before. Oh I need to tawk 'bout Mom right?! MOL! Ok, her works fur an Animal Health Int'l Companies fur ofur 3 yrs now, but da co. merged wif nother co. who are movin' facilities to Colorado end of March; so mom is out of a job then. Is ok, her really enjoyed dis job workin' in da Payables dept 'n met so many great furiends who she hope's will stay in contact. Werk seems to be gettin' really stressin' though, coz peeps are so sad 'bout da location bein' closed down fur good. SAP is takin' ofur 'n dey gettin' rid of JDE. It's all meowmy knows. Her solves problems daily 'n lotza Vendors 'n Divisons love her!! Her has seen many of her friends leave already. Ok, other than werk, mommy knows all o' my wants 'n needs. I haz a spawcial meow dat I make when I wanna go outside. I already been out twice dis morning 'n is soo mush fun playin' wif her 'n I climb da tree o' knowledge 'n her watches me. I eat grass 'n her sits right beside me. Each day mom finds time to spend wif me playin' 'n our funnest game is when her chases me! It's so funny coz we only has lil room to run inside our tiny apartment, so it's roun' 'n roun' through da den, bafroom, hall, bedroom into da livin' room. Dat is where my tunnels are 'n I purrlay lots in 'em!! Efury mornin' 'n evenin' my Mom gives me sweet brushes 'n I does lubbs my tummy brushed too! It's my routine. Mom adores me 'n I adore her 'n we r a team, coz I follow her all da time, efurwhere. Her gives me spawcial kisses but I not always like dat! Her taught me how to ride on her shoulders jus' like Smokey Joe did 'n him was a smart kitty! I am gettin' there, an' my Mommy spends lotza sweet time wif me. Oh 'n in her spare time, Mommy really loves to sing, read, write poems, surf da net fur knowledge 'n interestin' stuff's 'n it gots LOTZA interestin' stuff's, dance-spawcially wif me!, cook-lately her been experimentin' foodage fur one, oh I mean Two! MOL! I does eat when her cooks yummy stuff, 'n her likes to take walks wif our fun neighbors when it's kewl outside. What else does Meowmy do? Enjoy it so mush when my PAW comes up to play! My mom's b/f is so kewl! Him plays wif me lots 'n spoils me rotten! Those r da funnest weekends! Paw will be up 'gain on Labor Day w/e, can't wait! Oh 'n mommy does manage to sleep sometimes 'n I sleep right next to her, sometimes ON top of her. Weekends r fun coz we get's to eat together too! Purrs I LOVE my mommy!
Daddy -I don't haz a Dad per se - But I does haz my PAW 'n him is so wonnerfur! I does love him bunches! But I only see him on certain weekends when he travels up from S.A. to visit us. I look forward to him comin'!! We haz lotza fun!
I also haz Auntie Lisa 'n Auntie Sandy, whofur always get's me prezzies 'n loves me too.
Now it's time to tell ya all 'bout Sam, Timmy, Ziggy 'n Angel Smokey Joe:
Sam - oh boy, does dis kid rock! Him lives across my door, ok step 4 feet out 'n u would be in his house! I've known SAM since
he was jus' a wee lil furkit! What excitement it was to haz him growin' up 'round me! Course we did think him was a girl at first,
well guess it was for 5 months we thought so. But is ok, coz him don't mind 'n we bof loves da color pink! Sam was Angel, well him mommy Lisa when her found out 'bout him bein' a boy wanted to give's him a manly name, so Sam I am it was! Course Sam will always be lil Angel to me, coz we haz grand memories of me carryin' him 'round in my mouth, teachin' him to climb, showin' him da ropes in my house. Now him loves me house 'n kin'a takes ofur when him come inside! We love to play outside together 'n chase each other! We always enjoy our Tree o' Knowledge to climb up. Sam is my spawcial brofur!!
Timmy - Oh boy. Dis kat is so pawsome! Him is a way kewl kat 'n he not let anyfur bother him! Sometimes him can be so mean, though. I seen him climb dat Tree o' Knowledge 'n him was da first! So I guess it's his tree, but him shares wif us! Tim Tim is a player dood. Him really loves us all, spawcially his baby brofur, Ziggy. He taught Ziggy all he knows, 'n Ziggy follows him 'round eferywhere, also into da woods in back. Not kewl, I tol' him, so dey gettin' better 'n stays closer to our doors. Timmy 'n Ziggy r house kitties mind ya 'n loves their apartment wif Mom Sandy. She is a great cook! Pawsome! 'n Dey get to munch on some exquisite meals! Tim Tim is my kewl fur cousin 'n a pawsomely Hansome Orangie!
Ziggy - Well Zig is a way pawsome dood! Him is a fun lovin' lil guy 'n always let's anyfur hold him 'n pet him. He really likes to come purrlay in my house too, as well as I go to his house 'n purrlay wif Timmy too. Zig let's my mom brush him 'n trim his claws! He's da best 'n don't cause any trouble! What a laid back dood! Ziggy purrs big 'n loud! MOL! But him has really gotten huge 'n kin'a FAT too! Him eats anythin' he can get his paws on, but Mom Sandy got's him on a diet now. Poor Ziggy! I lubbs ya dood!
Smokey Joe - Wow, what pawsome things I haz to say 'bout my Furbro Angel Smokey Joe!! Him was a great kitty 'n cherished Russian Blue. Him was mom's first 'Baby Boy' 'n her call him "Baby Boy Blue". I wish I could haz known him, fur mommy tells me stories of his love 'n companionship 'n intellegence!!~ It was sad dat him had sush a short life 'n FIP got him down. Mommy still crys. I comfort her 'n tell her I know how sad it is when kitties cross da bridge. Smokey Joe's short life of 5 yrs was excellent! He was a fetcher 'n retriever 'n all ballies were his furiend! He could bat ballies off da wall 'n play by himself efen! While he was da first to ride mom's shoulder's as her danced all happy, I haz also learned to do dat. My Hero, Smokey Joe, U rock dood 'n will always be in my heart furefur. I know ur sittin' high on a pawsome cloud somefur watchin' ofur us all. Thanks Bro!!
Thanks Big Harry fur taggin' me fur dis pawsome Furmily Tag game!! I tag anyfur dat wants to purrlay 'n lookin' furward to hearin' 'bout Ur pawsome furmilies!!
Head bonks 'n love,

HOWDY, EfurOne~! My Grand 'n pawsome furiend Tink tagged me fur da Love Bug Tag game!! Thanks Tink!~ Ok, so here goes!~
1. Meow! Are you a noisy kitty or a quiet kitty?
Welpers, I not really noisy or talkative, BUT I does haz a furry spawcial sound when I wantz to goes outside! I does get really LOUD! Sumthin' like: MAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA MAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA~!! MOL!! Yeps it does sound a lot like I'm callin' MAMA~!
Otherwise...I get all I want wif my sexy blue eyes!! MOL~!
2. Litterbox! Cover your business or let some other kitty cover?
I alwayz cover's my business, turn, like Tink does to make shur it's done correctly. Wouldn't let another kit does dat fur me, all us man kitties cover our own business! I always haz 'n nefer missed. Dat's what hansome southern gentleman cat's do!
3. Happy! Favorite Daily Routine?
My Mornin' brush iz da first thing dat happens when I get outta bed, I run 'n jump up on da bafroom dresser 'n sit there til mom comes to brush me, Can't start my day wifout my brushin' 'n I lubbs belly brushes! Den I Eat a bite of breakfast, play wif my sacks 'n boxes 'n mousies, Take a nappy, play some more, stretch 'n dream, wait fur mommy to come home from werkz, play outside when her comes home, climb da tree of knowledge, chase Sam (oh most times him chases me!) 'n I come inside to snack again 'n cuddle wif mommy at bedtime. But, sum days do differ, sum dayz I sleep more 'n I does like to sit in my window 'n watch dum burds!!! Naps do vary! ZZzzzzz MOL!
4. Hiss! Least Favorite Routine?
Least favorite? Hmmm, when mom ignores me 'n she's on this stoopid puter thing! I really hate bein' ignored when I am not asleep!! Dat is so annoyin'! Oh 'n Timmy also isn't fair 'n slappy pawz me outside, if he's outside in da evenin'z! Hisss I get right in his face 'n smacky him rite back! Dat routine can go bye bye! I am good, otherwise.
5. Ding-Dong! What do you think about visitors to your house?
I am a purrty good greeter, meself!! I must know who it is an' sometimes mom can't hear da knock, so I let her know somefur is there, I have to know who it is! It might be Sam wantin' me to come outside 'n play! Ya knows, I really like visitors! Another southern hospitality trait. Purrs 'n come on in, we're glad to know ya~!!!
6. Friends! Do you like other animals?
SHUR DO!~ Come on in 'n explore!~ But I will make shur U feel at home, cause I'll be right on your tracks efur second while U r visitin'!~MOL! Outdoors I am da peacekeepr, 'n I does lubbs my fur bro Sam 'n my fur cousins, Ziggy 'n Timmy, well Timmy 'n I really don't associate mush, he can be rude! I do play well with others, but I am no sissy!! Oh 'n I efen like da doggies da live 'round our partment too! But I watch from a distance. Dey want to chase me 'n eat me! MOL! I'm kewl..I'm kewl wif dat! MOL! I haven't been 'round any ofur aminals beside kits 'n doggies 'n burds, stoopid burds!!!! I do not like dem, dey hurt 'n bite 'n r stoopid!! From da master's at werds>>Tabbies!! Hehehe!
OK, there u have it! Thanks Tink fur taggin' me 'n it was fun! Consider urself tagged if u haven't played, coz I think most of my furiends haz already played. Enjoy Ur Caturday night 'n be happy!~ I lubbs u furry mush, 'n thanks fur readin' my diary tonight~!

Hi 'n Hope Ur all havin' a Grand Weekend. It's ok here, not as HOT as it has been, 'n da wind is up. It's been hangin' 'round 'bout 100 or better lately. I stay inside more, drink more ice cold water 'n eat less. It's nice inside, a/c is wonnerfur, so I still get to play lots wif my super mommy 'n her chases me 'round lots! I love it!
Now I like to tawk 'bout mommy's work. Her loved this Job coz it revolved 'round animals. Her always sez, Milo, I love dis Job coz I love animals so much! 'N her sez, I care 'n want to be there for them, participate in something good for them. I know her loves me 'n loves all of U~! I know dis in my heart. On Monday, da 13th, peeps from upstate Colorado came down to share in their grand news of the merge of Lextron 'n Walco Animal Health International. AHII is what it's called now. Mommy pays da bills from Vendors all ofur 'n process's da invoices so dey r paid on time. Also her researches problems 'n makes sure da statements r reviewed 'n old stuff is taken care of. Her really loves tawkin' wif Divisions 'n Vendors. Dey all seem to love her. Now, her found out, As the two companies merged, HQ will locate in Colorado. Also her got offered a nice severence package 'n great 'stay on' bonus. Her last day is March 31st, 2012. Most of the office will be done December 31st.
I tol' her that's a long way off, mommy! Lots of things happen in dat time! Of course I will be here always fur her 'n care fur her 'n love's her wif my cuddley self.
On a good note, last night I started a new kin' of lovin' stuff. It's 2AM, right? I cannot sleep so I nudge her. I wake her up, 'n I wait til her eyes open 'n I can see them!!! Her still sleeps wif her eyes open, I learned dat! MOL!! So I crawl on top of her chest, I put my nose to her eye balls, coz, well her keeps shuttin' 'em!! Her kick da covers off. I go licks her legs, 'n nudge more. I get back on her chest. I MEOW LOUDLY! Her jumps 'n I Laugh!!! Her tickles my chin. I PURR LOUD! Now dis is what I'm tawkin' 'bout!! Ok, ok, so maybe dat wusn't what I really wanted but it shur was nice! I made more ruckus, knocked a few things down off da dresser 'n 'puter table, so her finally GOT da NOTION! Her get's up, creeps to da kitchen. Whoaa..low 'n behold, I got no food in my Bowl!! MEOW! More MEOW, Prrt, Brrrr, Meoooooooooooooooooooooow! My sweet mommy grabbed my bag of Purina One 'n filled up my bowl! Well, it's 'bout TIME, MOM!!! Geez, I nefur make dat big a ruckus unless it's IMPORTANT!! RIGHT?!? Ok, good, U can go back to sleep now mom! Thanks, ur a good mommy!! What a night, her tossed 'n turned so much dat I COULD NOT SLEEP!! Sheesh! Wonner why???? MOL! It's ok, I forgive's her. Dis Mornin' I wuz in my normal spot up top right next to her pillow 'n head. I purred. Coz I know I got's it good. Mommy I sorry u been sad. But I promise to keep on lovin' u 'n purrin' 'n doin' my grand head bonks wif u!~ 'N What efur happens, da future is NOT set, 'n life is good. So, We will make it. U will find work. I will eat. 'N all will be happy.
Thank u my sweet 'n wonnerfur furiends fur all da support, love, care's, comments, advice 'n thoughts. Mommy feels better 'n so do I.

OH 'n I guess I need to update my diary today. Mom's feelin' da blues. Mommy haz been goin' through some rough times lately. Her werks haz been goin' through what dey call a 'merger'. 'N when dat happens, mom sez da best company wins. Well, da best company in dis case is da one dat bought her company out. Is sad. Coz dey will be mergin' to da state of Colorado, not Texas whar her company is now. Dey chose SAP ofur JD Edwards, which is what her company uses in accounting. Dey r on SAP. Mommy doesn't know SAP. Sigh. Looks like all da peeps will be gone from Texas soon. All her furiends, all her co-werkers, all. Her is hopin' dat there will be a lil time fur her stay 'n maybe halps wif da cross-ofur. But, it looks bleak. Mommy not want to go on unemployment!! Mommy wants to werks, her NEEDS to werks. Her is in-de-pen-dent now. Her got her life's together in 2008 when her got dis job 'n went permanent. Her loves dis job!! It's a great Animal Health International Company!! It's NOT jus' a job, it wuz suppose to be a career! Now, all is lost. Sigh. Mommy is so sad. We not know when, but time is comin'. It's so hard to find good werks these days. Ya know? At least I am here 'n I keeps her happy face goin'!! I does. Her sez I iz da best thin' dat happened to her since furefur!!! I keep her tears dry, 'n I licks 'em. Maybe I halps her find happiness while waitin'? I not really know's what to do, but I here. 'N I Stay wif her, through thick 'n thin.
Thank u so mush fur listenin'. I be's afraid o' da unknown. Mommy know's I haz to eat!!! Werk is a good thin'! But, Time will tell.
Thank U fur bein' there fur me 'm mommy.
We pawpreciate all ur kindness!!! I lubbs my fureinds furry mush!!
*Milo hangs his head* It will get better, mommy!!! It will, I promise!!
*Milo wishes fur brighter days ahead* Pawlease purr 'n purray fur us,
Thank you 'n God Bless,

No one else can comprehend.
Thanks for being my furiend!
