Hi Twiddle, I saw the crescent moon last night and thought about you. Now I am driving to school so early it is still very dark. I have to leave at 530 to avoid a big mess with traffic. Here is a three day weekend because it is MLK Day. Do you know about Martin Luther King?
I am glad because I have to catch up with the house. I got another cat. He is hiding under the bed. I put some food and water under there. He is so cute, a twin to my other cat. They look the same. I wanted to see how long it would take my son to figure out I had two cats.
Take care, Keep warm.
