Little boy kittie has officially been named...
Jesse "Buckwheat" James, Jr. (My dad had a black cat named Jesse when he passed and although I wanted him, my stepmother insisted on taking him and promptly lost him.) My little Junior is a thief, steals napkins, socks, moves all the kitty toys to barricade his food bowl, etc. a bit of an outlaw. I have no idea where the Buckwheat came from, Meowdaddy just calls him that as he carries him around like a baby. (Alfalfa would have been better, he has a cowlick on his back.) He's a funny little guy. He and Sparky have bonded big time. They play together, sleep together, clean each other. Very cute. I tried to take a few pictures of him with my cellphone but he's so dark all you see is black. I still can't find my camera battery charger, but will keep looking.
I'm just over a nasty bout of the flu, the only good thing to come of it was a loss of appetite. Going on Spring Break in 2 weeks with a dear friend from California, we're going to Atlantic City and Cape May. (He's spending the first half in NY with friends and then coming here.) We've been friends for 30+ years, former roomies. He's also a teacher....inspired by yours truly once upon a time!
Hope everybody's well. Come July I'll have lots more time and MUCH better focus to put on myself and my Sparkworld. Rest assured, when I'm sparse in Sparkland, I'm still here, just limited on computer time. Thanks SO much for all the support, you guys ROCK!!!!
