Sorry this post is a bit of a downer. Hopefully we'll be back to our regularly scheduled Mellybelly absurdity next week.

Friday Flashback: Star
While looking through posts from a couple of years ago to find something to use for Flashback Friday, I realized that at about this time two years ago, I was visiting my parents (plural, as they were still married) at their house (which has been sold) and hanging out with my beloved Star (who has since died). It was a bit of a jolt.
The first two facts, even shortly after they happened, didn't take all that long to get my mind around, perhaps because I'd been expecting them. But the loss of Star continues to be devastating: I can't even think about him without starting to cry, which is embarrassingly dramatic. I didn't write much of an obituary for him when he died because my whole family (even my cat-hating dad) was completely in shock. Star was such a smart, empathetic, and sweet cat, and he died much too young.
