killing animals [Nov. 13th, 2005|08:22 pm]
8 or so bees in my bonnet
[music |the delgados-everything goes around the water]

went to see my mum sing last night.
she's in the st.albans bach choir
and they were singing mozart requium
i'm not generally a big fan of vocal music
but for that (and a few others) i will make an exception
it's beautiful and the abbey has a nice reverb.

it was kind of apt because
bubbles, our family cat of 10 years died on monday.
she was 17 which is a pretty good innings
but she had a rather nasty tumor and it was getting too much, so...

...i hope some will take care of me like that.

she was a very proud and gentle creature
and did a good line in withering stares
(she was quite the anti-smoker)
and belting up and down the stairs
(she was in touch with her inner kitten)

she was a good friend in hard times

I'm sorry about Bubbles, but she'll have no more bad days now. It's not much consolation when you'll miss her, though.

Mozart & Bubbles

It was great to have you at the Mozart. What a genius he was . It's very emotional music to sing. A very short Requiem but full of power in every section.
And dear Bubbles- what a special creature she was to so many people :Wendy & the boys, Sylvia & R4 as well as to you & us.We miss her gentle prescence around the house. We'll have more cats ,but not yet.
Great to see old Baz there in the photo too.
