This is the present photo.
Picture Poem This
I think this is one of the most adorable photos I've ever seen. It reminds me of Iggy, so much. I sure do miss him, alot. This poem is for him...
*Iggy Bonks* was a game we played,
each morning when you greeted me.
It was fun for you to bonk me good,
until I spoke, "Good Morning, Iggy!".
Eye glasses crooked on my face,
you purred as I placed them straight.
I could see that twinkle in your eye,
because you knew I'd take the bait.
Bonk me once, then bonk me twice,
knowing with each you'd get a pat.
You had it figured right all along,
that I'd never refuse my Iggy cat.
I think you simply liked my laugh,
as I fumbled around with my glasses.
You had that silly Oscar the Grouch grin,
that I miss more with each day that passes.
I hope you don't forget me Iggy,
in this new world that you've found.
I'd hope there's lots of new friends,
that you can *Bonk* all around!

Mornings just aren't the same without you, Iggy...
