    It warms my heart to hear you laugh Cat! I think whomever suggested that you never stop feeling the pain but that you learn to live with it differently was right. I also think over time you find new joys in life and sometimes, the memories that cause such pain become the very memories that also bring you joy… all those wonderful memories of your mom will help her live on in for you, Bob, Simon, and the rest of your family.

    In friendship

    You know why it’s so cold, don’t you? Because I’m 9000 Kms away…

  3. Bill Deys Says:

    Thanks for all the kind words Cat. Also Michelle and I are married and were when you met us in Kingston. It’ll be three years this September! And I will be in Kingston for PAB 2007. I wouldn’t miss it and I can’t wait to see you there!

    My vote for your long weekend is Boston. I live about 25 miles south and have been a bus tour guide. Boston in June is wonderful, lots of things to do for adults and kids of all ages. The weather is usually nice and sunny, not too hot with all kinds of flowers in bloom and leaves on the trees. It’s got lots of places that are an easy walk as well as tour trolley’s and public transportation.
    A couple of places I’d recommend are the Children’s Museum and Fanual Hall/Quincy Market. They are about a 10 minute stroll from one another along the waterfront and along the Freedom Trail. Then there’s the Charlestown Navy yard and The Backbay with the Common and Public Garden. The Swan Boats will be open in the Garden. And if you wanted to get outside the city you could go north to Salem with the House of 7 Gables or south to Plymouth which has a replica of the Mayflower along the waterfront and Plimouth Plantation.
    I could go on and on but I don’t want to twist your arm.
    I’d love to show y’all the sights and sounds and wonder that is Boston though so come on down!

    Cat, I’m a new listener, and I’m so sorry I didn’t try you out sooner. I’m also very sorry to hear about your mother, please accept my condolences. I have to say, you spoke about your feelings and the situation with a lot of dignity, I was very moved by it. I lost my aunt (whom I was actually just as close to as my mother) a while back, and although it doesn’t hurt so much now, there are moments when I still miss her a lot.

    I’d throw my vote in for Boston, too — I’ve visited twice, and absolutely adored it. And if you haven’t already shared Robert McCloskey’s “Make Way for Ducklings” with Simon, you could do that and use it as a jumping off point for site-seeing. I did this with Madeleine when my (then) three-year old niece visited us when we were living in France — we searched out the various landmarks drawn in the book and took pictures and made our own book at the end. It was a lot of fun for all of us, and kept her occupied and happy. The only down side was that she was disappointed at not finding Madeleine herself!

    FYI, there’s a decent wiki entry for the McCloskey book, if you’re interested:

    Cat, I just checked out your Flikr. I know I’m a little behind but those Halloween pics of Simon are so adorable. He is such a cute kid. Love the show!

    Kelley (:

  8. Pam Says:

    Welcome back Guys !

    It does my soul good to hear your happy voices.

  9. Kayla Says:

    I have had Twitter for a while, but for some reason none of my friends use it besides my boyfriend so it is a bit pointless for me I think, yet I still use it.
    Yay! I now have 2 shows to listen to after my vacation, so I am quite excited.
    Lovely show, I am glad things are slowly getting back to normal.

  10. Elvis the Cat Says:

    Cat, I have been listening from show #1! Love the show and hope you ar doing well. I read the eulogies on your mom’s website and it was so sweet! It was a funny, but I don’t think you would have talked about all the things you hated about your mom! Anyways, checked ou the website:, for all those that havn’t checked it out. Love the show, keep podcasting, maybe you could bring Fish and Lectra to Kingston and we could have a playdate. The extra super CatfishShow!

    Meow! Love ya, boobye!!!

  11. Mel Says:

    Hi Cat,

    I am still listening! I am totally behind in my shows (but today I am getting caught up…only 18.2 hours of podcasts still to go…)

    I wouldn’t miss listening to your show for the world! Baby Mark seems to enjoy it too (judging by the fact that he has slept through it so far….)

    Thanks for the congratulations! He really is something special!
