A prologue before we get started...
As if you don't know me by now, BUT just in case beware... I am a crier. There I said it! And just the thought of Miss Kato leaving this mortal earth for the big dog bones in the sky makes my heart heavy. Probably have MOM to thank for the instant lip quivering thing-cases in point... Remember when I hatched baby duckies for my 4th Grade science project? Once they were too big and pooped too much to call a cardboard box in our kitchen home we had to set them free... Dad banded their legs and told me we could keep track of them that way and MOM cried the whole way to Wylie Park pond AND home. We tend to be a little sentimental ya know? The grass in my parent's backyard grows green and fertile... R.I.P. Gretchen (dog), Pookie I and II (hamsters), Za Zoo I, II, III (parakeets) and Corkey I-? (birdies too).
The Powell Court pet cemetery drew me in like my Grandma and a K-Mart blue light special. Tucked in the most perfect and peaceful part of the garden each and every beloved pet has a place to rest and a heartfelt monument for remembrance. Click here for Bully, the pony. Here for Kilfang the wolf hound. This is the spot for Doodles and Sun Yat Sen the chows. And here to see my hubby in the background wishing I would hurry the you-know-what up. Gheeez!
The rest of Powell Court ain't so shabby either. I found it intoxicating (fine maybe the pint of ale we had with lunch helped too) with the lush green grass and the perfect gardens. Even I could capture this somewhat artistic shot with the ole Sony Cybershot. I mean is this Green #8 and Granny Smith Apple #40 right from the Crayola box or what? I am so lucky!
Be sure you are present tomorrow for role call as we are gonna have a lesson in German 34b cup style.
