we found suzie cat today. one of the assholes who are constantly ripping around behind our house on their motorcycles and atv's ran over, killed and left her. denise is crushed. i'm really, really sad. since my accident i seldom see many people, and there are people who were my long time friends who i have never seen again, or maybe a few times a year, and there are "friends" i only hear from when they want to save a few bucks on a chainring or a tire, but my critters are there for me all day, every day. we saved suzie from death at the pound super sick and almost dead so at least we feel like we gave her almost four quality years of life. she was always all over me, she always came when i whistled, and she slept under the sheets with me when it was cold. and, she was so graceful and beautiful. i miss her already. if you MUST ride those fucking noisy, dangerous off road vehicles at least try to watch what the hell out for what you are doing, slow the fuck down, and stay away from urban areas. i'd really appreciate it. who knows, you might save yourself from being the next one in a hole in the backyard, even if you don't care what you do to everything else. steve & denise.
