This is E.G. aka Egypt.  We met her early April of 1997 and immediately fell in love.  She was given the needle of peace yesterday because the Cancer had advanced too far.  Needless to say, Egypt has been an important part of our lives for 16.5 years and will remain deeply loved.  I know in my  heart that she is now romping like a healthy kitten once again with her childhood roommates, Sir Magick, and RubyGlow.
Above is Sir Magick and below is RubyGlow.
They will guide Egypt in Rainbow, and since all three lived and played together, were all kittens in 1997, for sure they will make certain E.G. is oh so happy!  I love you Egypt.  You were my very first precious grand-daughter-kitten.  We are happy for you now that there is no more pain. 
I am so grateful for our long relationship.  See ya' as soon as GOD says we should be lovingly rejoined. 
Meow.  Your Loving Human.  MOM *o*

Author is unknown to me.  Dedicated to my MOM, who was very proud of our American troops.  Meeeeeeeeeeeeeeee too, Mammy.*o*


He was getting old and paunchy
And his hair was falling fast,
And he sat around the Legion,
Telling stories of the past.

Of a war that he once fought in
And the deeds that he had done,
In his exploits with his buddies;
They were heroes, every one.

And 'tho sometimes to his neighbors
His tales became a joke,
All his buddies listened quietly
For they knew where of he spoke.

But we'll hear his tales no longer,
For ol' Joe has passed away,
And the world's a little poorer
For a Veteran died today.

He won't be mourned by many,
Just his children and his wife.
For he lived an ordinary,
Very quiet sort of life.

He held a job and raised a family,
Going quietly on his way;
And the world won't note his passing,
'Tho a Veteran died today.

When politicians leave this earth,
Their bodies lie in state,
While thousands note their passing,
And proclaim that they were great.

Papers tell of their life stories
From the time that they were young,
But the passing of a Veteran
Goes unnoticed, and unsung.

Is the greatest contribution
To the welfare of our land,
Some jerk who breaks his promise
And cons his fellow man?

Or the ordinary fellow
Who in times of war and strife,
Goes off to serve his country
And offers up his life?

The politician's stipend
And the style in which he lives,
Are often disproportionate,
To the service that he gives.

While the ordinary Veteran,
Who offered up his all,
Is paid off with a medal
And perhaps a pension, small.

It is not the politicians
With their compromise and ploys,
Who won for us the freedom
That our country now enjoys.

Should you find yourself in danger,
With your enemies at hand,
Would you really want some cop-out,
With his ever-waffling stand?

Or would you want a Veteran
His home, his country, his kin,
Just a common Veteran,
Who would fight until the end.

He was just a common Veteran,
And his ranks are growing thin,
But his presence should remind us
We may need his likes again.

For when countries are in conflict,
We find the Veteran's part,
Is to clean up all the troubles
That the politicians start.

If we cannot do him honor
While he's here to hear the praise,
Then at least let's give him homage
At the ending of his days.

Perhaps just a simple headline
In the paper that might say:

p.s.  Let us not forget those brave bomb sniffing dogs.  RIP to you all, including my uncles who served during WW 2. Two of them eventually died from horrific illness they acquired in the military. I love you Uncle Les.  I love you Uncle Abie.. 
Love from RubyNorma *o*
