I am SOOOOO out of the loop on everything and everyone. The last I heard, our Ollie was kitty-less. Now she's house-sitting for someone with a cleaner house than I have and two kids, or were they daughters?

I am trying to pretend this torpid weather does not exist by never leaving my house in the daytime.

Just checked in to tell Ollie (and Kimi since she doesn't have a blog of her own - that I know about!) that I love them and miss them horribly!
