In memory of those that are no longer with us.

Enjoy the weekend folks. I hope the weather cooperates for all of us!

Cheers!

Yeah, memorial day took on a whole new meaning to me today.

Fat Cat (Mark) passed today because his lungs, liver and kidneys were failing.

blah.

But now I'll brew a beer in his honor and when his ashes come back, I'll plant a tree with them.

I feel for you Drew.  I know how close we can become to our cats (my mom calls them fur-people).  Remember the good times.  Raising a pint in memory of Fat Cat...

I have one on my lap, and two on my feet as I write this.

Really sorry Drew. So hard to lose a pet.
A man works hard all week, so he doesn't have to wear pants all weekend.

Sorry to hear about Fat Cat, Drew.  Losing pet is a tough thing.

Thanks to all who made the ultimate sacrifice for this great country.

Bummer Drew, sorry about Fat Cat.  We'll eat birds in his honer today.

Just so you know who you're toasting - his full name was Marcus Aurelius Fatticus Catticus or Mark for short.

I had a jet black German shepherd named Marcus Aurelius when I was a kid.

Raising a pint to our service men and women and hoping that many of those who are currently serving abroad will be able to come home soon.

Sorry about your cat, Drew.  I've been on the outs with mine lately (she's been decorating my son's room with various bodily fluids), but I know I'd be pretty bummed if she were gone.
