Yes, I know this is overkill

My life with Elvis coincided with my life as a digital camera owner. (Elvis came to Downing Street in July 2000; I got my first digital camera that Christmas). Therefore, I have an insane number of pictures of him. And Neilson of course has hundreds more. We started a flicker group in case you feel like seeing some.

As some of you know, there will be a small gathering in honor of Elvis at the Peculier Pub (yes, that is how it is spelled) tonight and some people other places will toasting Elvis as well. If you do toast Elvis tonight it would be great if you could take a picture and e-mail it to me. I'll add it to the group. Or if you are on flickr, you can add it yourself. Thanks

This is the last picture of me and Elvis, taken on Tuesday.

I disagree this is overkill. You are just honoring a wonderful friend, who happened to be a cat. We will raise a pint (of something-Andy at least will drink a beer)to Elvis tonight.

I also agree that it is not overkill. Jerry, Capers, Nola and I all had a guinness in honor of Elvis. Nola and Capers actually had water but the spirit was there.

We took some pictures of us raising a glass to Elvis last night and I'll get them to you soon. I didn't actually see this post until Wed morning. I was going to post the pictures on the blog as a tribute so clearly, not overkill as I thought we should all post pictures of us and the pets honoring Elvis.

Kym, feel free to also post them on the blog. I have pictures from other people and will post those. I hope Nola didn't get too tipsy.

What a great picture abd your beloved cat. Our Keta is 20 years old and getting pretty miserable. We are having a hard time making a decision. We will raise a glass to Elvis tonight.
