Well, let's see -- I'm close to a bookcase which is loaded down with books. But it looks like the nearest one to me is a book Mom picked up the other day: Water for Elephants by Sara Gruen.
And here's what I find on page 123, five sentences down:
"What is it?" calls August.
"Did Clive feed the cats?"
His face appears in the crack of the flap. "Ah. Yes. Well, that presented a bit of difficulty, but I've worked something out."
Huh? What? WHAT was worked out!?!?
Mom, you must read that book N-O-W and let me know if the cats got fed... this is a matter of utmost importance!! (Note the preceding two exclamation points. In my posts, I seldom ever use more than one exclamation point.)
My oh my, I hope so much that the cats in that book got their stinky goodness. And to think, the title mentions water and elephants... not food and cats. Oh dear, I am so confused.
Many kitties have already done this meme, so I will do an open tag... anybody who wants to, please play!
While I'm sitting on the edge of Mom's desk waiting for her to hurry up and read that book, I'll share some happy news. My dear future sister-in-law, Ariel, created a wonderful award and passed it to me!
Here's what she said about it: "I was talking to mom recently about creating an award. Everyone knows someone who goes beyond. A person who always helps others, always has a kind word, a person with a heart of gold. So I told mom I wanted to make an award we could give to those we think deserve it."
Thank you so much, dear! I'm deeply touched. And I will pass this lovely award on to my darling Mickeybear, my sweet BFSC Gretchen, my dear sister Miss Peachypie, my friends Kimo & Sabi, and my friend Parker.
