I am building an ark. Too much rain. I have not been able to lay in the sun for days. Thanks Heaven for my sweet disposition and my near inability to complain. May you be inspired by my reticence.
Frannie X is getting ready to leave after her weeks vacation here. I knew she was homesick when she wrote "Tartan Fields" with Kibbles and Bits! Her new family will be returning from vacation just as you get this bulletin. We have had an interesting week together. She brags about her new digs, but I have St. Mary's and that's as good as it gets.
