So I had one more place to look for fabrics, some boxes in a closet. Didn't find the fabric. Instead I found of box of cards and letters from long ago. Of course some were from Jim or the cats, he would write for the cats.
I dream a lot. And I often dream about Jim as I did last night. I woke myself up this morning singing the song from Dirty Dancing, "I've Had the Time of My Life." The cats were looking at me with a strange look that cats can have as I belted out that song, probably because I can't really sing, but it felt good.
