Tiny Pet Pal Gone--and Tipping the $cales on Warm Spring Saturday

Figgy woke up to find Mochi departed to the afterlife this morning. She was really sad, and so was Punch. We all are.

Team Sisters took care of the itsy-bitsy furry fella very well and with plenty of devotion. And of course, we and Fig just footed the vet bill Tuesday, plus medicine. Poor little guy. He was cute.

They want another one.

Just to perk things up, here is Punchy's official fifth grade photo. I'm usually on top of things, but this year, I forgot to write down when School Picture Day was, so we didn't plan the outfit and hair......and then somehow, we didn't do the make-up day either [your second chance]. Anyway, I like this:

  1. Walked back from town, beautiful day.
  2. Walked Sug around block.
  3. Had to miss morning support group because Dan had to drive to work in NYC, but I enjoyed Punchy's soccer game at the park.
  4. Bought a Martha Washington pink geranium and pretty pansies. Raked garden, planted pots.
  5. Had spinach added to my Greg drink at Joyist. 


  1. Sorry about your pet, but to the extent that F could be moving next year and P could lose interest in care that isn’t also play time with her sister, maybe better for you, who has enough to do. Love my dog, but do not like being responsible for her care. Did not foresee that the boys would move and the pet would not, which was not brilliant on my part. Cute photo!

    1. Hi Liz. It is a lot to be responsible for a pet...but pets do bring such joy.....we shall see....hope your weekend was good. Love Alice

  2. So sorry about Mochi! Punchy is adorable.
