Claire had her birthday last Tuesday, and she thanks you for all your kind messages.
As she was sick, no way to go to the restaurant, then Momo made her a « special birthday » prune tart.
Grandpa was on vacation on Tuesday, then we waited till Caturday to celebrate in family :
PIXIE : Look who arrives ! It’s Grandpa ! And he’s loaded like a mule !
ZORRO : Oh yes, he has his hands full with presents !
As usual, Claire has been spoiled : figurines, earrings, socks, pullovers, and t-shirts. No wonder that she rarely needs to buy clothes !
Last week, we posted an article in which you found links to help animals affected by hurricane Harvey.
What a shock it was, and the word is weak, when we heard that hurricane Irma followed Harvey closely, and was even more violent and devastating !
Landslides in Switzerland, earthquake in Mexico, drought for several years in certain regions of Africa, fires in California, in Montana, and Wyoming, more violent hurricanes than the last, Mother Nature is angry.
We understand her : she must be fed up with human bullshit ! Unfortunately, Mother Nature has difficulty in targeting her action and in shaking those who would deserve it, and she makes many innocents suffer.
What’s to be done ? How to help ?
- If you are on site, follow the recommendations of the authorities regarding evacuation or regarding putting in a safe place.
- Solidarity and mutual aid are essential in these terrible moments.
- All around the world, you can give to a serious fund-raising organization (Red Cross for example) which will commit your donations to answer the need for the people affected by the disaster.
- To help animals, inquire with the associations of animal welfare in the affected areas and the surroundings : they do an extraordinary work !
We cross our paws for all our friends who are in regions affected by a natural disaster, or who are on the path of Harvey, Irma, José, or Katia. Stay safe !
