OK, so I know I haven’t posted anything in absolute yonks. And I’ve been thinking’ about doing all kinds of stuff to get inspired like maybe taking a mere 15 minute drive to one of the most beautiful medieval castles in Europe… or going out in the back yard and exploding a watermelon before my wife tells me we need to clean up the patio furniture for the BBQ season…

But as either of those options would involve a shitload more energy than I’ve actually got at the mo, I decided instead to pour myself a Delirium , rip open a bag of vegetable chips (with SEA salt natch!), look through my B&W negs… and I fell upon this one of our Scratch. Taken about 15 years ago on Ilford 400 ISO film on my EOS-100 SLR… it got me thinkin’ about the little guy and how he’s amazingly put up with my incessant teasing and name-calling throughout his life. And I started wondering about just what we are actually gonna do when he’s no longer with us?
There has never been a cat who’s had that much power my soul… who can melt me right down through the floor boards by just looking at him staring at me and telling ME how stoopid I look.
So with this poor excuse for an inspired image, I’m simply taking a moment to tell you all how much I love him and how much he’s needed in my life.

Now please excuse me while I go cry my eyes out. And pop open another beer :-))
