Mancat Monday: In Memory of Walter, King of eBay
A computer guy came over yesterday and helped us get lots of stuff off of our sick iBook and onto the new Mac. Mosaic Lady mostly wanted photos of her mosaics and of us furs. These are a few very important photos, because they are the reason we now live in North Carolina.
Walter was a foto ho' and never met a camera he didn't like. Mosaic Lady is never above making us pimp her stuff, especially when Walter would jump up on the staging area and strike his poses. That was the case this day in April of 2006 when ML was trying to earn monies from selling stuff on eBay. She had just quit a job that was killing her (for the second time!) so she was a scramblin'. Anyway, a very nice lady was surfing Bauer Pottery on eBay and saw Walter posing so beautifully. She started looking at all of ML's listings, hoping to see more of Walter, and ended up seeing our dawg too. She has a Blue Heeler mix, and four cats, just like we did! And then she bought some of Mosaic Lady's mosaics, and then more and more, and before you know it, we're moving across the country and the nice lady is our (fairy) godmother and ML's business partner. Wow. All thanks to Walter. Too bad he couldn't stay around a lot longer to share it all with us, but we keep his memory alive by looking at his photos and collecting cat art -- and cats.
