Jul 20, 2014 ~ On July 15, the day I'd arranged with my dear neighbor to bring my mother's bedroom furniture to my home, she'd called my brother in North Carolina, unbeknownst to me, to move her to his home. She left the following day, breaking all ties with me - her choice. Yesterday I was hit by a semi (driver had a heart attack), totaling my 2 year old car. I'm badly bruised due to the deployment of the airbags; otherwise, I'm fine physically. I will resume posting military B/Ds and A/Ds August 1st. I'll visit your loved ones as I can. Thank you so much for visiting mine.

I'm a feral cat caregiver, an animal lover and a keen reader from Louisiana. I have a deep patriotic love for America, am a devout Roman Catholic, and have a fond addiction to strong, black coffee and dark chocolate. My nickname is Suse; sniksnak is a name coined for my cats' treats (snicksnack was too long for my first internet provider's character fields, so I removed the silent Cs; hence, sniksnak).
My beloved late husband and soul mate (Craig Paul Bachman) and I are owned by numerous cats and dogs who entered our lives, either by our rescue or our personal adoption through the non-profit cat sanctuary we owned, Pawprints and Purrs, Inc. Shortly after his loss, I dissolved our organization but still have at our home twenty-three cats and four dogs who are not adoptable due to various ailments (diabetes, IBD, hyperthyroidism, etc.), or as in the case of the majority of the cats, are unsociable due to being trapped as adult ferals.
Craig long marveled at my love for cemeteries - the older, the better. A taphophile I am - taphophilia is a passion for and enjoyment of cemeteries - I love walking through them delighting in the solitude and peacefulness as I read markers and headstones.
My heart holds a very special spot for veterans, members of law enforcement, children, and animals. Support our troops, back the badge, and report child and animal neglect and abuse. Sidney Sheldon, an American writer, stated my own thoughts, but ever so eloquently: "My heroes are those who risk their lives every day to protect our world and make it a better place - police, firefighters and members of our armed forces."
I believe every memorial should have a virtual flower. When I see one without, I add one; it's an honor to leave my respects. That person was once loved and cherished by someone, somewhere.
I visit every person who visits my memorials as I have time. I deeply appreciate each and every visit. ❤
"These fallen heroes represent the character of a nation who has a long history of patriotism and honor - and a nation who has fought many battles to keep our country free from threats of terror." ~ Michael N Castle, Republican former governor of Delaware

Your Accident
Dear Suse,
You are in my thoughts and prayers as I go to sleep tonight. I am so sorry about your poor car and, mostly, about you getting hurt. Take care to get better as best you can, one day at a time. You are such a sweet person, wish we lived where I could come visit and help you out right now. Know that you are loved by many and watched over by your loving Craig and the Angels.
Take care and God Bless.
With All Sincerity, Kathie L. Webb Blair, Portland, Oregon (and Shadow, too)
