Happy Earth Day to all my furiends and my meowmy's special- furiend.

Today, my meowmy had made plans with her special and longtime furiend. You see, Meowmy's furiend Daryle is one of the people she admires the most of anyone we know. Daryle was born with a condition of her eyes called Aniridia. Daryle's eyes were so bad that she was deemed legally blind with only some vision. As time went on, she lost more of her vision and had to go through several cornea transplants and even cataract surgery for the clouded lens. Daryle did NOT allow this to dampen her spirits. She was determined as she went through all of the surgeries to get her Master's Degree and took public transportation to UNC-Charlotte where she achieved this honor. Daryle became a counselor at a large local church and has become an inspiration to many. My meowmy is furry proud to be one of Daryle's furiends and they have had great fun with each other over the years. They (just Meowmy and Daryle) even took Daryle's two human children and three of my human siblings to Florida for almost a week on a furry limited budget. They saved so much money at Disney that they managed to squeeze two more nights in Daytona Beach. What a trip! Now, let me tell you that my meowmy and Daryle know how to squeeze blood out of a turnip when needed. Daryle has never given up and continues to wear her rose-colored glasses (Daryle's description of her view of life). Sadly, Daryle's vision is almost totally gone now and she basically sees only shades of greys. Meowmy says she doesn't know many people who would take the lemons that Daryle has been given and who could make such sweet lemonade. Daryle may have been given a little hope recently for some more vision with a doctor she found in Ohio who does artificial corneas. Daryle has had the limit of cornea transplants and has such scarring that nothing else can help her. My meowmy prays that this doctor can help her precious furiend.

Happy Earth Day to all my furiends.
