To The Uncle Gone Too Soon

I think about you every day.

To The Uncle Gone Too Soon
Odyssey Online

Dear Kevin,

Uh, that doesn’t sound right… let’s start over.

Dear Fester,

That’s much better. It’s been a week since you passed. This past week has felt like forever and a day. When I was home it really didn’t hit me that you are truly gone. I wish there was something that I could have done to change it, but I’m realizing that there isn’t anything that will bring you back.

With every day that passes, I sit and wait for you to walk through grandma’s house and say that you were just on vacation to clear your mind. I wait for you to say you’re all better and everything will be fine, but it won’t be.

I just want to let you know that I think of you every day. I think of all the times I used to call you fester and how you’d get so mad at me. I think of all the facetime calls where you tell me that you saw Smokey today and I’d tell you that you were crazy for talking to a squirrel (by the way I still think that you are crazy for talking to a squirrel). I miss all the crazy ideas that you came up with (Alfredo, your metal stick man, takes the cake).

Although I try to think of all the good times that we had and all the laughter that was shared, I can’t help but think about the bad times. I can't help to think about the way that you chose alcohol over your own family. I can't help to think about all the times I would walk into the house and see you passed out on the floor and automatically think you were dead (I’m glad you weren’t because it gave us the few extra months together). I just can't help to think about the bad times

I promise to keep the promise I made to you and I will be strong for the family and make sure everyone is happy. I promise to never let your memory fade, and I promise to keep your spirit alive.

Love ya Fester.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me

This one's for you, Spock.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

Kinder Self - Eyes

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"

Ancient Roman Kings: 7 Leaders of Early Rome

The names and dates of the reigns of the first four kings, as well as the alternation of Sabin and Latin names, are more legendary than historical. The last three kings, of Etruscan origin, have an existence which seems less uncertain.

It is evident that all this is only a legend although archeology shows us little by little that these kings if they did not exist as the ancient history, describes them, have at least in the very Outlines were real as chief of a shepherd’s tribe. The period when kings ruled Rome could estimate at 245 years.
