November 27th 2013

In December of 2008 I sent my cats to live with my parents. While it was the best thing for my kitties, it is still one of the biggest regrets I  carry in my heart. My cats are fat, happy, and spoiled beyond belief my parents love them maybe more then they love me.....

My grey cat, Pootie Tang, was the first cat I  have ever had in my life. She was born in my friends closet in Eugene OR June 20th 2002 and he gave her her name. She was my soul sister, now she is just VERY angry at me. I love her so much. She is actually a very snobby, grumpy, bitchy, mean ninja cat. She loves to eat cheese, popcorn and butter. Pootie always has a lot to say.
Catnip makes her mean.....

Iggy Pop is my brown tabby. I wanted to name him Ziggy Stardust, but he just wasn't cool enough for the name. So I went with Iggy Pop. I adopted him from a shelter in Portland OR in August of 2006. We assumed his birthday is June 15th 2006.  Iggy is a true scaredy cat. He assumes everything is going to kill him and most food is poisoned. It takes many long hours, days or months or observation before he decides that anything is okay. He also has the smallest meow. He is a 17 pound cat and sounds like a tiny kitten....

We ventured out into Riverton a bit today. We tried to find some lunch.... It is hard to find any sort of vegetarian fair in a Wyoming town of 10,000 people. Joel ate a grilled cheese.....
Here is a little snip-it of  Main Street.

I am going to go out tomorrow while the town is shut down and take some more photos, but here is a taste of the town I  grew up in.
I am not sure if you can read the sign properly, but this is Rocky Mountain Sporting Goods. It is a liquor store, a sporting good store, and a Hallmark.... Booze, Bows, and Bullets..... what more do you need?

Here are my parents Dane and Judy, and Joel at a restaurant called The Lapeyre.

The flag behind my dad only has 48 stars on it.... (Joel counted... then I did too just to make sure.)

Here you can count the stars on the flag too..... I know you want to.

This evening we went to the Shoshone Rose Casino on the Wind River Indian Reservation. The Rose on the other side of Lander WY. so it is about 45 minutes away. You can't take photos in the Casino so I took some in the restaurant Deka-Guy Hee.

Tomorrow we are going to celebrate Thanksmas. It is a holiday we invented. Sometimes we aren't able to see each other at Christmas  so mom and dad would visit at Thanksgiving, I don't especially like coming back to Riverton so mom and dad usually come spent the holiday with me where ever I am.

I haven't been back in Riverton for probably four years..... Mom is pretty excited that we made the trip. I am happy she is happy.
