I had, what I thought, was a really cool idea; a podcast dedicated to the SCA. I got some great feedback, suggestions for folks to interview, topic ideas…and then life got in the way.
To make a long and sad story short, our kitty, Meowlcolm, passed away last Monday. We spent months trying to figure out what was wrong. He’d stopped eating, he was losing weight and, in the last week of his life he could barely keep his balance to walk. We made the decision to euthanize our kitty and I told the vet he could do a necropsy if he thought it might help others. The necropsy revealed that Meowcolm was consumed by cancer. We had done the right thing. I felt that we had but it was nice to have it confirmed.
In the midst of this, we were trying to get ready for an event we attended this weekend. I had a class to teach, a solar to run and I really needed to make something new for my girl and myself to wear. I got my child dressed but not me. I did, however, get the things for my class together and I think it went over well. The solar, it was for spinners, knitters, weavers, etc…didn’t really take off. The weather was hot and rainy and I don’t think anyone relished the idea of sitting outside huddled under a pavillion hoping no rain gets us.
This brings me full circle to the podcast. I still think it’s a good idea, but I’m not certain I’m the one to do it. I have other things I’d like to do so we’ll see.
Here’s my Meowlcolm, (he’s the kitty on the right) with our foster cat, Thomas. Thomas is no longer our foster, but a permanent member of the family. We couldn’t bear to lose one more kitty. We miss you very, very much Meows.
