The things you remember~Give away

~~~One of my daily blogs reads is always Because I said So. A stay at home mom with 6 kids all named after cities. Her wit and writing skills match Erma Bombeck and remind me also of my favorite comic, "For Better or For Worse"
*
~~~In today's post she talks alittle about her son's hermit crab that died plus other daily happenings. What I liked what her oldest son went into the garage and made a little tombstone with a piece of wood and distressed it to look old with white out! There is even a picture.
*
~~~So that brings me to remember of all the pets I've had and burials we've done.
In no particular order
*
1. Goldie the gold fish, we had many, all the same name and they all died either from too much food, or the cats scared them to fishy death.
*
2.Hermit Crabs. We brought some home from the tide pools once and they lived for a week in the bath tub. then they died and stunk up the place.
*
3. Parakeets, My Mom was really fond of parakeets despite the mess they made. She had the cage hanging to the right of the dining table and the cat's were always doing acrobatic leaps to hang off the cage. I think my mom went through 2 or three birds. I remember also that the feathers were so tiny and a pain to clean up.
*
4. Mama Kitty was the 1st and best cat. she eventually got eaten by a wild animal.
*
5. Quincy Jones got poisened by a neighbor
*
6. K.C. She died 2 year ago and is buried at my Mom's desert house.
*
7 Tyera was my cat and I gave him to my mom when I got married due to Brian's allergies. It was good for him and her. He died last November. He's buried at her house but I have his dish that I made him here.I want to make a little spot for him in my garden.
*
We had full on burials for all the pets in my mom's tiny patio garden, and I think that's why her plants always bloomed their best plus she's got a greener thumb than Martha Stewart.

I want to hear about your past pets. I'll do a drawing on sunday night after dinner. You can post as often as you like. I'll let Dyllan help pull a name and the winner will get a mini-altered album for you to record your furry loved ones. I'll also include inspiration quotes and some vintage wall paper scraps to fill your album with.
