Dezi: MeOW C’mon Raena, today’s a very special Blest Sunday.
Raena: Really sissy? What’s so special ‘bout today?
Dezi: It’s Veteran’s Day, Raena. A day we take to ‘member the soldiers who fought, and many gave their lives so we could be free from tyranny. So many brave men, women and anipals gave their lives on distant shores, so that loved ones and even strangers like us could live our lives free from fear of wars in our own home. Me thinks we furget how things could be. We’ve been free fur so long that me thinks we sometimes take our Country’s greatness and freedoms fur granted.
Raena: I’s think you’re right sissy. It’s not purretty to think ‘bout young men, women and anipals lying in a trench on some foreign soil bleeding and dying. To think ‘bout them bein’ lonely and scared, and away from their families and loved ones; not knowin’ ifin they’ll ever see them again. To think ‘bout them swearin’ an oath to purrtect us…to die fur complete strangers. Soldiers who never gave a second thought to goin’ to bad places and facin’ bad people. Standing their ground and sayin’ “As long as I’m here, no one is going to hurt you”.
Dezi: So true Raena. There’s so much hate and discord in our Country right now. So many peeps sayin’ and doin’ things that would get them thrown into prison or killed in lesser Countries. Peeps tryin’ to take away the very freedoms that those soldiers bled and died for. The truth is, it’s a slap in the face, it’s like spittin’ on the graves of all those who bravely fought and lost their lives to secure those freedoms and make our Country great. It makes us so sad to hear ‘bout our vets bein’ treated badly.
Raena: I’s think all those soldiers who died to make America great are turnin’ over in their graves at some of the nonsense goin’ on right now, sissy. In our house, we bleed red white and blue. We honor our flag and each and every soldier who willingly defends/defended our Country and us from our enemies. We are so Blest to have been born in such an amazing Country. We are Blest to have a mommy who has taught us the price that was paid to make our Nation great.
Dezi: Yes Raena, we are indeed Blest. We fank and salute each and every veteran and their families today and every day. We fank each and every soldier who serves us now. You may not know us, and we may not know your name, but we ask God to Bless and keep you each day. While you’re watchin’ over us, God is watchin’ over you. As we do each week, we’d like to remind you all to Give Thanks fur the Blessings in your lives. and we wanna fank you all fur bein’ Blessings in ours.
Raena: And, as we do each week, we’re linkin’ up with the Kitties Blue fur Sunday Selfies. Purrlease ‘member to fanky fank our vets fur their service. Because of them and their sacrifice, you can sleep safely in your bed at night.
Till the next time…………………………………………………Be Blest!!!

Hey, is anypawdy out there? It’s me, RaenaBelle. Meowllo? Is anypawdy in here? Sissy, come here, I’s need your help. Purrleeeeease…Nuffin’ be workin’. I’s can’t get anythin’ on this machine to work. I’s tried all the browsers and I’s pushed buttons that I’s don’t even know what they’re fur…and nuffin’. What’s wrong with it sissy?
Why are you askin’ me Raena? How should me know what’s up with the computer? Why don’t you ask mommy?
She’s busy. She keeps pokin’ a pin in that box with all the lights (modem) and tryin’ to call somepawdy, sissy.
(Mommy A finally picks up the cell phone to call the internet provider after trying to reset the modem numerous times to no avail. The automated system picks up and asks a lot of questions, altho’ the opportunity to speak with a live person isn’t one of them.) Uh Oh Raena, me has a feelin’ this day just went from bad to worse. Mommy hates talkin’ to those silly machines. And did you hear it tell her that a live operator wouldn’t have any more infurmation than it did? Seems the innernet’s out all over ‘round here. Guess it’s a good thing we got that smarty pants fone or we wouldn’t know that even.
The innernet’s out?!! What do you mean the innernet’s out?!! How does that even happen? What are all our furiends doin’? How are we s’posed to check our mail, or edit our fotos or get our posty out? How are we gonna survive? We neeeeeeeed the innernet, sissy. I’s got plans to make and things to do and…
Slow down Raena and take a deep breath. Furst of all, the whole innernet ain’t out all over the world, just ours. Well, and maybe everypawdy within a hunnerd miles of us. And, the silly machine said they’re aware of it and they’re tryin’ to fix it. So, hopefully it’ll be back on soon. Most ‘purrtantly, our furiends will unnerstand. These things just happen sometimes, and there’s nuffin’ we could’a done to stop it. Hopefully, it won’t be out long.
How can you be so calm, sissy? I’s still have so much left to do to get ready fur your pawrty next week.
Me really ‘purreciates all the work you’re puttin’ into me’s pawrty Raena, but me’s sure it’s gonna be great. Me never wanted you to be so stressed out. Me wants you to enjoy it too. Ya’ know, cuz you didn’t really get to have a pawrty fur your special day this year, me was thinkin’ we could both enjoy this bash, ‘specially since you’re feelin’ better.
Y, Fanky fank you sissy. That sure is nice of you to share your catabration with me.
‘Course RaenaBelle, what are big susfurs fur?. (Dezi mumbles under her breath) Besides, mommy would make me share whether me wants to or not. Anyways, (Dezi turns and meows to Raena) Me’s sure there’ll be purrlenty of food and fun fur everyone. (Mommy A picks up Dezi and puts her in her harness) MeOW Wait a minute, where are we goin’? The last kitty out that door didn’t come back lookin’ too good. Me’s not goin’…Hisssssssss
I’s wanna go, take me mommy. Me, me meeeeeeeeeow.
Ah, votin’. ‘kay, me doesn’t mind goin’ then. You can’t go till your eyes are all better Raena. Mommy doesn’t wanna take any chances with infection ‘n stuffs. Don’t worry, we won’t be long, we’re just goin’ up the street. (A short time later, Dezi and mommy A return from the polls with news)
RaenaBelle, oh, there you are. Hey we heard the innernet’s out till some time tomorrow (Wednesday). We ran into the innernet fixer at the polls and he said they had a transfurmer out and had to order a pawrt. So, c’mon, let’s go play with our nanners.
Okay sissy, just let me try to figger out how to make a facebutt posty with the smarty pants fone.
You’ve been workin’ on that all day Raena, just give it up. Our fone’s too smart to let us open facebutt. Quit downloadin’ apps ya’ gotta turn ‘round and delete. We’ll have our computer back tomorrow. Till then, we can live like we did befur tech invaded our house. C’mon, me will show ya’ how.
I’s comin’ sissy. Kittens!!! I’s can’t believe peeps once lived without tech. (Raena shakes her head while trying to imagine what it would be like to not have computers and technology)
Till the next time……………………………………………..Be Blest!!!
