dahs512: and the kitty loss was sad

auntyalias: I'll post to the list that we're here

frogger70301: yeah, but I wasn't completely attached. I only had him for a few weeks.

dahs512: i have 4 and one pissed on my son's bed. Don't know who the culprit is

dahs512: didn't know what i needed it for

frogger70301: pots and trays?

dahs512: just pots

frogger70301: oh, I was gonna say make some little bird baths and sculpt a bird taking a bath in them.

dahs512: oh, cool

frogger70301: that's why I'm painting my pot.

frogger70301: gonna make a bird bath to sit on a shelf, and hopefully later on I'll sculpt a bird to go ibn it.

dahs512: mini or full size

frogger70301: six inch tray, so almost full size.

dahs512: big

dahs512: should we turn our cams on while we are waiting?

frogger70301: although I'm thinking of trying it smaller until I get the hang of it.

auntyalias: may as well

auntyalias: I was just chatting with a friend of mine, he lives with his friend's grandmother who is ill

auntyalias: so he needed a hug

frogger70301: Don't have mine hooked up, and got to much of a mess to get it .

auntyalias: reminds him of when his grandmother died

frogger70301: give him a hug from me.

chenoa_2b joined the room

auntyalias: I told him that those we love who passed on are never away from us if we keep them alive in our hearts

auntyalias: if they loved us, we love others

auntyalias: if they had faith in us, we should encourage others

auntyalias: that way we do honor for our dead
