Percy Andrew Pursel

Mikki has a history of making changes as soon as I leave town on business - buying a dog, putting our house up for sale, painting rooms in the house, etc. Yesterday I returned home from the Philippines to find that we have a new cat. Our neighbors found it in their window well and despite the agreement Mikki and I had not to have any pets, she gladly accepted the kitten. I had every intention of returning the cat until I saw the note below from Jace. If the picture isn't very clear, here is what it says:

Dear Percy Andrew Pursel:

I hope you had a fun birthday on the 31st day of October. You are a cute little cat. I hope you idn't get hurt in the window well and in the car. I hope you like it here. I hope you weren't scared in the window well. I hope you didn't get hurt in the window well because of those tumble weeds. I like you Percy. I hope you like your name Percy, I was just wondering if you did. Frome Jace

He also managed to wake up a few times during the night concerned Percy might be cold and needing a blanket. He's a little attached already.

It's been a while since we've posted so here are a couple pictures of the kids. It's hard to believe it's already Thanksgiving. I am grateful for a wonderful wife who I don't always deserve and for wonderful kids who make me smile every day. I am also grateful for my amazing parents and the rest of my family. Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
