Meh. Stupid mortal coil.

Oh! I have slipped the surly bonds of earth and danced the skies on laughter-silvered wings...

--John Gillespie Magee, poet and aviator

Ladies and gentlemen, Antigone Pandora Smith-Ready has left the building. It was time to go, and she went with dignity and pride, the way she did everything else.

I'll get back to blogging about books and stuff as soon as I can. A million thanks for all the good wishes and virtual hugs you've given. I feel lucky to have such wonderful friends, and even luckier to have the best friend of all in Tiggy.



I am so very sorry for your loss.
(((Jeri and family)))

Oh, I'm sorry Jeri. Knowing you guys, I have no doubt she had a most wonderful life.

I am so very sorry Jeri. You have my deepest sympathy. She was a beautiful cat.

Chris called me the other night. I was so sorry to hear. Keep your warm memories close.

Aw, Jeri, I'm sooo sorry. Do the comfort thing, whether that's chocolate or movies or music. *hug*

I'm so sorry. I know she was loved, and so did she.
