  • R.I.P. Charlie - Mama loves you and is so sorry!

    10/2/2014 2:34:01 AM, by SKRIBBLEZ

    I'm depressed. When I decided to get sober again, I moved into Liberty Way, and I couldn't keep my cats there, so I asked my friends Pat & Beth to keep my two cats, Charlie and Casper. Pat and Beth live in a smaller town, in Pratt, and Casper was always an outdoor cat for the most part, and I neve... Read more

    10/1/2014 11:34:16 PM, by PFERG66

    I'm meal planning for tomorrow. It's a day at home, and I shopped today so no problemo.
