Interlude - "Goodbye cali"

Posted by

I apologize for this interruption to my current series of the Washington State Capital in Olympia, Washington:

On Friday August 24 (yesterday, as I write this) our beloved 9 year old Calico cat, "Cali" succumbed to a very aggressive case of cancer that rapidly affected her internal system! We noticed things early in the week and took her to the doctor right away, but, as fast as we reacted, the cancer was even faster, and by early Friday, we were faced with the harsh fact that we would have to say goodbye to this cute little girl who was the light of our life!

So now, Barbara and I are trying to get a grip on things and move on - it is hard to imagine how we can do this, but we will somehow...

I will return to the current series of the State Capital in Olympia, Washington in a few days. Until then, Thank you for your understanding and support.
