My employer does a good job trying to engage their employees beyond just traditional work. They also include families. They were having a kid’s coloring contest for families. I think I messed up the instructions, but my kids looked great when I was done!
Sonora participated in Fortnightly again this year. Its an etiquette class that meets about once a month to teach the kids. The final event was held at the Missouri Athletic Club (MAC). This is close to where Laura lives. She is a member and loves going over there with guests.
We dropped Sonora off and went straight to Laura’s. There we met Josh and his children to hang out for the evening. We had a fantastic time, then went over together and picked up Sonora.
We got a new cat and we named him Brawndo. If you’re wondering about the name, it came from my favorite movie, Idiocracy. Brawndo is a pure bred Maine Coon. We were picking him up from a breeder just west of Kansas City. We drove through an ice storm the night before to ensure that we could get him on time.
Enough of the car. We picked him up from Olga at EuroCoons. She was a bit more expensive than other breeders we talked to. When we go to her house, we could see how much she cared for the cats and were not disappointed by paying more for him.
And because the internet is all about cats and the post is about Brawndo, here are some photos of him!

Sonora is incredibly happy!

Corvin likes him too!
It didn’t take long for the two of them to become buddies.
