me mom and our family hope that every kitty and their families had a nice and safe Memorial Day weekend. so me mom, me dad and me autistic brother Adrian came back from the state special olympics competition. mom said that it was very hot in Arlington:( me mom and Adrian did the 1k on the bike. it is a unified ride, which means, their score is added together. so mom tries very hard to help Adrian get a better score. well they got a silver medal, again. but mom says we will try again next year and see if we can do better. mom says she goes as fast as she can and Adrian.....well, ever seen anything in slow motion? well that's Adrian. mom just wonders how he manages to stay upright on that bike going so slow! no he really tried harder this time but it was some 95 degrees and it was very hard to focus because it was so hot. Adrian did do better on his 500m race. he was alone and got a gold medal. Yeah for Adrian! mom says, that when one goes to the special olympics, it is so much fun. there is a torch that is brought in by police men, sheriffs, transit police, highway patrol and special olympics athletes. they have an opening ceremony where the athletes walk into the field:) they also have a closing ceremony and a victory dance! me brother likes to dance the chicken dance and mom helps him dance to that YMCA song. my brother does not talk but mom knows what he likes and he likes being with his friends:) mom says everyone had a good time.

now we don't know if any of you kitties know that we live in a military town. many days we see this group of veterans that ride on motorcycles. me mom finds this very interesting because these veterans go to many funerals of fallen soldiers or sometimes to very important veterans funerals. they come with different flags and follow behind the funeral procession. we live very close to a national cemetery and cars still pull over to the side to allow these procession to go by, honoring these soldiers as they pass by. one usually can tell if it is a soldier from the current war by seeing the men on motorcycles with their flags and the news still announces when a hometown soldier has passed......so sometimes Memorial Day here is not just one day out of the year because mom always passes by the cemetery and sees the headstones all in a row:( mom says, that when me dad left the military, the cemetery was not so big as it is now:( one day, maybe for 4th of July, me mom will take a picture of the cemetery and post it on my page.

we have exciting news! we have a visitor in our house. it is a black kitty named Indy. he has been hissing and growling at us:( don't know why, we have never done anything to him. he came over because mom had to give him some medicine for fleas>: he should be ok soon. mom calls him her grandcat.so i guess i am his uncle:)

once again i hope everyone had a grand time and now to things being what could be considered normal:/ meow all!

Well done to Adrian for getting a gold medal. It was good to hear your news Dusty. I've only just seen it on the Purr List on the homepage - our friends activity takes so long to load up that mum's been missing our friends diaries.
Love & hugs
Alfie xx
