I'm fighting off a cold, last night at the hotel for the second night in a row I had a "bite my tongue phone call" from a potential guest at the hotel who tried my patience almost to the limit, and recently I received a snarky reference about my blog postings being about an "Old Sage living in the past." I am not in the best mood today. Do I take this out on my readers by posting an equally hateful and negative blog posting today or do I post something fun and uplifting. I go for the uplifting post. Especially because a good friend of mine just lost his beloved feline companion yesterday. His cat, which was named "Simba", and he only had three legs but that didn't stop him from enjoying his cat life to the fullest.
My friend was told a few days ago this his pet's kidneys were failing and wouldn't last too much longer. My friend slept with him in their sunroom his last night. That touched my heart and it was the one positive thing that happened the past few days. I'll post this video which shows the delight in having a cat for a pet in honor of Simba.
