Grandma Greta
"She used to be so pretty," they said with sadness in their eyes.  I thought she was beautiful, and not "for seventy."  She was pretty because she had been through so much and would still smile, with her eyes sparkling and dancing. She would walk with the elderly back bend. Her hair was long but wiry, mane of curls.  She knew every crude joke, and not in a "Oh, grandma, you're so nasty" way. But in a Navy Seaman will blush deep purple kind of way.
Her name is Greta and she's originally from Germany. She met grandpa Alex while serving dinners at the Supper Club.  For months, he would come in for dinner and chat her up.  After two months he started to walk her home.  Tenderly he held her hands.  With every step he took he thought "marry me, marry me, marry me."
Finally, he asked her.  She brushed her hair behind her ear. "Yes, Alex!" She twirled around with joy.  The had three kids, two boys and one girl.  Eventually they had six g

My heart has joined the thousand for my friend stopped running today.
Richard Adams

Some members here will remember my little Foundling and how I found her on a ledge outside the window of a third floor apartment I'd just moved into. That was in 2004 or around there. I'm no good with numbers so I'm just as no good with dates. She lived with me ever since and I have to admit there have been times I don't know what I would have done without her.

Foundling didn't mind that I would go back and forth between New York and Pa. Only once did I leave her behind but even then it wasn't long before I sent for her. Foundling was a talker and she loved attention. If she didn't get the attention she felt was her due she would let me know about it. She loved to play with her laser pointer and small toys and she loved to be held but only for a little while. I loved to hear her purr when she would lay next to my head I often fell off to sleep listening to her sing her song as my Mom used to call it. I remember more than once when I would wake up confused and half out of it from a nightmare she would be there letting me know everything was ok. After I stopped having the nightmares she kept close and often I would be up all night on my pc she wouldn't be far away. She loved laying in my laundry basket or under my desk.

It was last week she began to show signs that she wasn't well. At first she started sneezing and after a little while she got an eye infection and then she lost her appetite but she still drank water so I wasn't too worried. Then she stopped drinking anything, not her water, not her cat milk my room mate bought for her and she loved. She laid around not wanting to be bothered for several days until it seemed she was getting better. Her eye that had been plastered shut opened again and she was at least drinking water. but that didn't last long. She began to hide from me and the others here. The other cats in the house left her alone and didn't bother her. She was like that for three days until today She tried a couple times to get up but fell back down no longer trying to do anything but breathe so shallowly that I had to watch her carefully to make sure she was breathing at all.

This afternoon I checked on her to see she had finally passed on. She is gone from my life now but I am so much better for having known her. She will be missed but I know her spirit won't be far away.

Until we meet again good bye my dear little friend. I will miss you.

To be honest my place isn't all sunshine and rainbows either. Working on a farm is not as enjoyable as it may let on. I almost can't wait to be able to move out. Somewhere not too far away from the family, but somewhere in the city would be nice. I need neighbors XD
