  • charlie is just a tad bit heavy. she’s been on a diet, but as you can see, she is not highly motivated to exercise. she seems to be saying in this photo, “scratch a little more to the left.”

    what is she lying on? my kitchen utility drawer that has been broken for the past two months. makes a nice little kitty condo when stacked atop boxes of stuff left over from Grandpa’s move. Eventually we will unearth the router in the overstuffed garage so we can replace the kitchen drawer.

    fortunately, there are always mixed blessings. she's quite content.
