Typing through tears

Empty Sky is dead...
I thought I could come here and type something meangful to let people know that Empty Sky who's name is Garth, my uncle and della's brother has died.
But I can barely type this.

The weather here brought down my phone line in the wee small hours of last Friday and by great surprise Telecom had it re attached by 1:30pm that same day. That was only a temporary fix though as there is a rather large tree in the way.
No problem, just cut off a few branches? not so simple. It's a neibour tree that is on communal land with at least 5 owners.
I sort of have telephone use and now internet dial-up. I didn't realise how much I used it 'till it was gone. Kind of the opposite of mt PC's floppy drive.
Hopefully it will be resolved soon.
You can all stop looking now

Cleo is home. She found us. A neibour found her meowing at our door and called the number on the posters we had stuck up. It turns out she was stuck in the basement of our landlord.
After five days with anything to eat or drink she is really skinny. Right now she is on a chair next to me asleep.

It's 4 days later and my is still missing
I feel like I'm about to vote conservative as last night as I was getting ready for bed, I could swear I heard purring. Or as a ugoslav I work with would say "click and the sound of a cat"
I belive this email I've been sent spells the difference between cats and dogs.
