What I am most thankful for this year is the single word that Princess Leia spoke in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.
The Rebel Alliance had just suffered huge losses at the Battle of Scarif. But the hard-fought-for piece of intelligence that was passed into Princess Leia's hands gave all the freedom fighters hope for a coming victory.
When the news sucks
When the fear looms
When I’m feeling sad
I simply remember my favorite tunes
And then I don’t feel so bad
When a ginger-tabby kitten with a stub tail was found in Talkeetna, Alaska, who could've purr-dicted his pawlitical future? Stubbs was elected the town's honorary mayor after voters opposed to the human candidates led a write-in campaign. The town’s general store became his “mayoral office”. Thirty to forty tourists visited each day to see the feline mayor, who went to a nearby restaurant every afternoon and drank catnip water out of a wineglass or margarita glass. Stubbs served as mayor for 20 years and passed away in 2017. Bonus fun fact: Stubbs was also a write-in candidate for the 2014 U.S. Senate race in Alaska.
"Buh bye, kitties! I'll be home tonight! Love you!"
"The human's gone again," Jellybean meowed. "Let's get to work."
"Hold on," his sisfur CC replied. "Remember she comes right back sometimes. Saying she forgot something."
