For Our Hero Mu Shue

Edited 7/12 at midnight: Mu Shue has rallied! We Ballicai are so happy -- what wunnerful newsies! We are purrin and purrin for him and for his fambly. Keep on keepin' on, sweet big boy!


Purreshus Mu Shue Pooh King Cat will be goin to the Bridgie. He is furry ill. But he lived a long life and shared many years with his Mom Laura. He resckued his sweet sisfurs, Lily and Iris, from the fire, and he stayed long enough afturward to make sure Mom Laura's sweet li'l blurpy twins arrived okeydokeys.

Mu Shue was an angel on Earth, and now he'll be an Angel at the Rainbow Bridgie. Mu Shue, we Ballicai love you, and we send love and purrs to your fambly.

High Flight

Oh! I have slipped the surly bonds of Earth
And danced the skies on laughter-silvered wings;
Sunward I've climbed, and joined the tumbling mirth
Of sun-split clouds, — and done a hundred things
You have not dreamed of — wheeled and soared and swung
High in the sunlit silence. Hov'ring there,
I've chased the shouting wind along, and flung
My eager craft through footless halls of air. . . .

Up, up the long, delirious burning blue
I've topped the wind-swept heights with easy grace
Where never lark, or ever eagle flew —
And, while with silent, lifting mind I've trod
The high untrespassed sanctity of space,
Put out my hand, and touched the face of God.

— John Gillespie Magee, Jr
