Fathers Who Harm

Father's Day has become a more highlighted day of celebration than when I was a child. My father was born in 1927 and lived a pretty long life: he died in 2013, a few months into his 86th year. He was not a bad father. He did struggle with alcohol addiction and was imperfect in other ways, but he was basically loving and kind.

Ginger is a short-haired blonde-orange tabby cat and Aiyansh is a short-haired grey tuxedo cat. We got our two kittens about a year ago.

Today was fun but a little sad because when we went to the mall to buy me a pair of shoes ( white Adidas court shoes with black stripes ) we couldn't find a pair in my size, although we looked in about 6 or 7 stores. We also made a trip to a different Mall to get a Roblox gift card for my sister, but they were out of stock for the $10 ones! For now, I will wrap it up. Happy Puppy D
