Our Man Spike

As you know, my first cat is Spike. My best friend from college, Lisa (above) got me in touch with her sister, Laura, who was going to get married and move to Australia. She couldn't take her cats with her and we happily offered to take Spike. I haven't seen Lisa for almost 10 years, since she got married and moved away too, But this year she and her husband managed a quick side trip to London when visiting family in nearby Alymer. Laura and her family were also down to visit, from Australia. And apparently the subject of Our Man Spike came up. "I wonder what happened to Spike, He couldn't possibly be still alive!" It's been 18 years since Laura has seen Spike, and I was happy to report he was still alive and well! So Lisa came down to see him. It's too bad Laura couldn't come down too, so we took a few photos for proof! Spike is about 19 or 20 years old. Below is Lisa's hubby D'arcy and my brother Andrew and Our Man Spike making the rounds.

So Laura, these photos are for you! Thanks for your generous gift, Spike has been the best companion!

What a wonderful story! Love the idea of thinking of super hero quilts as well, I'll really have to think about that one! Happy New Year to you -- may it bring you much joy, love and laughter.
