Memorial Day and more

Hello all -

I would like to take a minute to thank all the veterans out there for all you do! Mom read a story yesterday that 8 in 10 people don't know the meaning behind Memorial Day. Isn't that sad? I think what you all do is amazing!

Guess what! Today is my 2-year Catster anniversary! I checked out my page, and sure enough - I have two candles on my cake! What a two years it's been! I sure have made some wonderful friends in that time! I didn't do much to celebrate. It was raining again today, so mom and I spent most of the day napping. I guess if I have to choose between snow and rain, I'll take rain - but I'd really like some sun.

If you don't mind, could you spare some purrs for the people in Montana, Idaho and North Dakota who are about to get flooded? My grandparents live in Montana, and they said it's unbelievable how high and fast the Yellowstone River is going, and it's been raining nonstop. To make matters worse, because it's been so cool, none of the snowpack has melted, which means there will be even more water coming soon! My grandma said that they got more rain in a month than they usually get in an entire year!

Well, I'm off for some more napping! Later friends!

Very sad that people don't know the real meaning of Memorial day.

We're sending lots of purrs to everyone affected by the flooding.

Last, but not least, happy anniversary!

We are sad...We usually fly our flag the whole Memorial Day weekend, but it has been raining nonstop for days. Our grampster is an old Navy man. He even has an eagle and anchor on his arm!

We are very thankful for the men and women who serve in our military for the sacrifices they make. We honor all.
