Our five year adventure in Doha, Qatar ended June 1, 2012, but the memories will always remain. It's back to Texas where I have decided...Qatar isn't cornering the market on "quirky", as I once believed. Thanks for opening my eyes to the world, Doha!

From Sykes to...Socks?

I know what your thinking. Just what the heck would I have to talk about if I didn't have that crazy cat, Sykes. He is most entertaining and can be quite the conversation piece here at the villa. I even got an email from Aunt Marge predicting that Sykes was going to be able to do the repairs around here after she noted his intense studying of David crafting my newfangled battery charger (which, by the way, worked!). Well you know how Sykes loves to retrieve things, whether it's a sock he's dug out of a shoe or a wadded up piece of paper. He's always bringing something to one of us to throw for him so he can keep up his skills. He really outdid himself yesterday while David and I were sitting on the couch. Here comes Sykes, with not only one sock in tow but a brand new package hanging from his mouth that he had found on my dresser upstairs. He handily jumped up on the couch and dropped them next to David to signal, "game on". Is it just me, or is he awesome?! The picture below is a reenactment in which Sykes was more than happy to do for his faithful followers.

If you knew how long I spent trying to find a song to go along with this post, you'd appreciate this blast from the past a little more. Now, when's the last time you heard that song?!

  1. Have you realized that you are for the first time experiencing the empty nest syndrome? Pretty soon Sykes will be so spoiled, David will be sleeping on the couch while the cat will be curled up in the bed beside you!! It's called transfer of affection. It's okay. You should be getting over it pretty soon. We all go through it. You'll either get a job, go to college, adopt a baby or get pregnant, start making a baby quilt for your first grandbaby.

I always love hearing your comments. Go ahead make my day, be it the good, the bad, or the ugly...
