Well I have to explain some things first. The PM was planning a little party for Shade last week but that kind of was forgotten. The Music Man was really sick last weeeknd, then the PM got it Tuesday, one wee-one got it Wed and the other came down with it yesterday. Nothing really has been done around here but laundry from all the yakkin'. The PM realized in the middle of the night that she had missed Shade's Gotcha Day.

She hauled her sorry sick butt out of bed early to help me do this for Shade.

Shade has been a part of this family for 8 years and she was 1 when they got her so she is now 9 years old!! Not lookin' too bad for an old bird.

The PM was trying to think of some funny story from when Shade came but that will have to come later as her brain really is mush this morning.

She did find this photo of Shade from over five years ago. Remember these times Shade? This was life before any wee ones, before me and before they got a new wood stove. Shade would sleep right under the old one!

I also have a meme I wanted to work on but the PM is giving me the evil eye so I'll save that for tomorrow!

Happy Gotcha Day Shade! You don't look a day over five.

I'm so glad to have met you both. I hope when all your beans are done yakking (it is going around Ohio and our house too) you'll get all kindsa party fun.

PS I think it is good your beans don't eat meat, that just leaves the entire pork loin for you kitties!
