(back) Subject: Off-topic obituary From: "Glenda" <gksjd85@direcway.com> Date: Thu, 05 Feb 2004 20:49:06 -0600   Bubba Columbus Sutton March 25, 2002 - February 5, 2004   I can't read this because I lost my glasses this afternoon when I collapsed on the bed. Hope you can.   Bubba Columbus Sutton died during the night/early morning hours alone at a vet's office, from a urinary blockage. He was the world's perfect cat, who I waited for my entire life. He had a huge frame and a magnificent black coat, touched only some white on his abdomen. He was the ringleader of his siblings, and protector of his family. He never relinquished the role, even when his father decided to abandon the vagabond life and become part of the happy Christmas Sutton family.   Bubba was full of life and mischief, always spurring the others on in play, always ready to defend them. He was home every night, ready for attention and his treats. He had more personality than all the cats I've ever had the pleasure to know, and I've had cats all my 43 years.   I came home from work Wednesday night, and he was already in the garage, lying on one of the Harley bags that fit in the saddlebags. He came forward three feet and lay back down, in apparent distress. He cried when I touched him. I went in and called the vet, leaving a message. When I came back to the garage, he was trying to void in the litter pan; unable, he moved three feet to his bed and lay down. He was in pain, so I covered him with a towel. I met the vet at his office, having bundled Bubba in Gretchen the dog's pet taxi, bed and all.   I stayed with him until the vet finally ushered me out, telling me he would be inserting a catheter and assuring me that Bubba would be OK, that we had caught it in time. Bubba was the perfect gentleman at the office, and did not fuss or misbehave.   So when I drove to Crestview for court the next morning and called the vet's office upon my arrival, as soon as the office opened, I was in total shock when I was told he didn't make it through the night. I sat in my vehicle, screaming and crying until I could manage to regain some semblance of control. I went in to handle my morning docket, red eyes and all, asked to be excused form the afternoon arraignments, and returned home.   I went home, changed clothes, dug a hole, picked Bubba's corpse up from the vet, paid the bill, and buried him under a dogwood in the back yard, close to the woods he liked to roam in the daylight hours. One of my volunteers from court that morning had called the florist and ordered a spray to rest over his grave. I then proceeded to get drunk and sit on the front porch with his siblings. I cried over his grave in the moonlight.   Bubba is survived by his mother Woodell, his dad Rufus ("Daddy Cat"), his siblings Mary Elizabeth (a/k/a Maria Leah, for whom I provided physical therapy to teach her to walk and sang her the song from "West Side Story" at night), Junior, and Nina Purina; his grandparents who helped see him into this world on a Monday of Holy Week not two years ago, and his step-sisters and step-brothers, Mack, Zack, Gidget and Molly, as well as four fish.   Thank you for reading this.   Glenda Sutton gksjd85@direcway.com     'How many loved your moments of glad grace, And loved your beauty with love false or true; But one man loved the pilgrim soul in you, And loved the sorrows of your changing face;   And bending down beside the glowing bars, Murmur, a little sadly, how Love fled And paced upon the mountains overhead And hid his face amid a crowd of stars.'   Excerpt, "When You Are Old", William Butler Yeats

Last time I went to PEI it was on a ferry. = So, so much for my being modern.

With the perpetual fog concealing the ceiling we had to take their word for it, but were less afraid of falling plaster. The walls looked good. The service was not as impressive as my first trip, but the organ sounded OK.=20   Lee apparently only touched the tip of the iceberg of wonderful organic sights and sounds in the Big Apple.   Glenda Sutton gksjd85@direcway.com   -----Original Message----- From: pipechat@pipechat.org [mailto:pipechat@pipechat.org] On Behalf Of Alan Freed   On 2/5/04 7:21 PM, "OMusic@aol.com" <OMusic@aol.com> wrote: We also visited "Smoky Mary's" (I forget the real name)=20   Saint Mary the Virgin (totally biblical). =A0But everybody knows it as =93Smoky Mary=92s (with good reason), so you are totally understood. = =A0West 46th between 6th and 7th.   =20
