E-Mail to Mom....

Dear Momma,
   Sorry I have not written I have been busy in the garden. I'm sorry I did not get the flowers planted in your garden in time this year.  I did however get the vegetables in and they are doing great.  It wont be long till we will have to pull out the canning recipes.  I can't wait to try Great Aunt Jean's tomato recipe.  It sounds delicious.
  This is great.  I still have a hard time believing I'm talking with you.  To think my little brother helped make the programing that makes this happen.  He told me they are really close to perfecting the voice over internet too.  I can't wait till I can hear everyone's voice again.
  Oh yes, he said to tell Mr. Bell thank you for the suggestion.  It was just what they needed.  It allowed them to get over the plateau they had reached.  He also told me to tell you they already have some researchers working on sending images as well as voice.  Wouldn't that be great, then I could see you as we talk.
   Let Mr. Jefferson know I was able to get a hold of his family in Virginia.  They said their computer has been down but it should be fixed by the end of the week and they would contact him then.
    I have so missed you, but I know you are catching up with all the family and friends there.  Tell all my cousins, aunts, uncles and grandparents I said hello.  I miss you all and can't wait to see you.  Don't worry I am going to do as you asked and stay here until I'm called. 
   Well I've got to go for now I'll talk to you soon
Love always,
Your daughter

PS:  We were able to find that old fashion yellow rose that you wanted.  We all went out this weekend and planted at your grave.  Hope you like it.

My First Drabble...

   Rayna from Coffee Rings Everywhere, dared everyone to write a drabble based on her picture.  I decided ever though I have never attempted a drabble I would try it.  I had so much fun writting it I think I will write more.
   A drabble is a story told in exactly 100 words, no more no less.  Try it you might get hooked.

Here is my drabble....

I live in a temple, as it should be.  My ancestors have been worshiped since the beginning of time.

I have been adored and pampered by kings and rulers through out the world.  I have had my own servants and cooks.   I decide who I will favor with my attention.  Who will be allowed to wait on me.

I chose when, where and what I will eat.  I have crowds coming daily to see me. They call for my attention.  People of all ages try to  entertain me.

 I am cat.  I live in a temple, as it should be.
