Nutmeg: 1999 to 2023

I’ll remember her purr

Ferocious demanding 

And stroking her fur

Silky and calming.

Never moving in haste

With her strong rolling gait

Two decades and more

She stalked her estate.

She’s moved on now and

We’ll surely miss her

Though taking some comfort 

That she’s rejoined her sister 

About TanGental

My name is Geoff Le Pard. Once I was a lawyer; now I am a writer. I've published several books: a four book series following Harry Spittle as he grows from hapless student to hapless partner in a London law firm; four others in different genres; a book of poetry; four anthologies of short fiction; and a memoir of my mother. I have several more in the pipeline. I have been blogging regularly since 2014, on topic as diverse as: poetry based on famous poems; memories from my life; my garden; my dog; a whole variety of short fiction; my attempts at baking and food; travel and the consequent disasters; theatre, film and book reviews; and the occasional thought piece. Mostly it is whatever takes my fancy. I avoid politics, mostly, and religion, always. I don't mean to upset anyone but if I do, well, sorry and I suggest you go elsewhere. These are my thoughts and no one else is to blame. If you want to nab anything I post, please acknowledge where it came from.

    So sorry. She was only in your video the other day. She had a lovely life with your family, Tikka and several versions of Dog. X

    I am sorry to read this, Geoff. She was the elderly cat that you made the ramp for, correct? Because she couldn’t jump onto the counter any more. It sounds like she had a good life.

    Awww…Nutmeg lived a long and happy life. My thoughts are with you, Geoff. It is hard to lose a pet, Steve and I were talking about our long gone dogs this morning at breakfast. We all have are memories, and they fill us up. That’s a good thing.
