Without a Trace

Back in the fall of 2011, a very sweet kitty came to live with us - abandoned?  No, I think he was actually supposed to live up at "the barn" next door, but they obviously weren't feeding this cat, because he was starving to death.  Literally. 

So pretty soon, he was eating on the back porch, then inside the back door, then, why the heck not, in the kitchen with George & Gracie.
 Bella was (is?) a beautiful cat - furry furry black and big green eyes.  I have 39 posts labeled with Bella - you can go back and read through them - the biggest surprise was last year when I took her to the vet & found out she was a "he"  - We called Bella our Transgendered cat - because "he" really did seem like a "she"

Bella disappeared on Thursday.  Coyote?
Maybe ... 

Thursday night is the first time since Bella came to live with us that he hasn't met me at the gate when I came home from work - hmmm - bad feeling about this. 

I've called the neighbors and put it out on the neighborhood facebook page that he is missing.  Hopefully he's just locked in someone's garage and will be home soon.  Keep good thoughts... I'll keep you posted.

Taking a break in the Caribbean from the cold wintery weather

A co-worker and her husband recently celebrated their anniversary on the island Turks and Caicos in the Caribbean  - her pictures were so pretty, I asked her if I could share them with you - especially for any friends on the east coast - spring is out there somewhere.....

Beautiful tropical beaches

George, Gracie & Bella liked the picture of the burds just lined up like a buffet

Miles of beach, and hotels....

I wonder what it was like before?

Beautiful shells

And other kinds of fauna...
Just as beautiful under the sea

Remember the warm sandy feet when the cold winds blow. 

Hope you enjoyed these pictures of paradise  -  Have a great week!

12th Man (& 12th Woman) Pride

The team at Security Solutions has a lot of 12th Man pride ... well, all except for our controller, Brian, who's a die-hard 49ers fan. We love him, anyway.

A brave man to wear red & gold in a sea of blue & green! 

Wishing our team the very best at Super Bowl XLIX!
