June 14, 2009 was my first blog post. However, I was still learning how to download photos from my camera to my computer. 

This Sparks definitely describes my thoughts when I decided to blog.

  28. Thank you for sharing all those great pictures of Madi. She was a very special cat, to say the least. The one with her climbing in the fridge is my favorite. We had to take Lexi out of the dishwasher once. After that, I could sometimes hear my husband saying as he would begin to run the dishwasher, "Remove Lexi, press start button."


Please leave a meow or bark for Angel Madi...her assistant (aka Mom) will respond in a timely fashion. =^..^=
