1976. Moonie is an astronaut.

October 31, 2011

We are moving. We are getting in the mini and moving. To NSW. We are bundled in to vehicles and trek our way south. It is a journey of 1,000 miles. We stop at a hotel. More than one, I guess. Moonie the cat is with us. I love Moonie. The cat tail in the picture above? That’s Moonie. We stop at a hotel.

It’s exciting. A hotel! There are little soaps. Scratchy sheets. Moonie has to sleep in the Mini overnight. We have two Minis, and I can’t remember if it’s the green one or the purple one. It’s not important. Dad cracks the window so Moonie has air for the night. It’s not a huge gap, but in the morning, Moonie is gone from the Mini. Gone. Forever.

It’s not important what color the Mini is, because Moonie is gone.
