Cheers to Jasper. It was two months ago yesterday that she passed away. It feels like forever since I've snuggled up with her. I miss my sweet lil girl... but I am OK with that, cuz I know her body was old. But I still miss her, I think I mentioned that already... Here's some pics...

This is one of my favorites of her...

She loved being in the water, and I think this is just a cool pic to boot.

Jasper and George. I love this pic too. They were begging for pizza crusts. Georgie just turned 12 last month... It's sad to see them age...

Me and Roo. Late 1995 or so. We are both smiling... I like that.

Cheers to fond memories and the love and spirit that is in our hearts always and forever.

This is the picture I submitted for the 'unConventional' book being done at Yearly Kos. I chose this picture because 1) I wanted one of me and Jasper together; and 2) This picture was taken when Jasper was helping me grade papers when I was teaching, and teaching was a theme in my essay.

And when I say Jasper was helping me, that means she kept trying to bite the eraser end of the pencil I was writing with. Silly girl... But we're both smiling in the pic, I like that you can see that.

Spring 1996

Jasper munching on a carrot. She loved carrots. This picture is quite scratchy, cuz it's from a photo scan from around the same time frame as above. I think she looks very cute in this one too.

Jasper as a puppy. I got her in December of 1992, so this pic is from around then.

Jasper and Larry. Larry was a skateboard punk cat, but he and her would snuggle up together when it was a nap time. This pic is from sometime in 2002 or 2003 or so.

I'm getting some photos scanned in periodically around here, which is one of my long-term projects. Just something I want to do, so I'm doing it. :)
