I picked up mail today and want to thank Don, Brad, and an anonymous stranger for the lovely gifts that I received. Muuuaaahhhh!!!! Huge kisses to all of you. May your generosity bring you many, many rich rewards. Don, the new cat doormat (top pic) now occupies place of honor in front of the door which leads in from my balcony. Feline kitchen towel looks just as adorable. Thank you for the William Burroughs biography, Brad. I look forward to reading it and placed it next to my well-thumbed autobiography of William S. Burroughs III, his son. A few of my friends like to read but not many of them. I agree that the practice seems to have fallen out of fashion 😉 Thank you, as always, for improving my library. Unidentified individual (s?) have also gifted me with a rugged new Timberland suitcase (already packed), aromatherapy oil diffuser, and Sansa MP3 player + USB card. Huge hugs for everybody. You made my month and I will be smiling all week – even as I prepare my tax return. Thank you so much!!!!
P.S. Shots above show my new doormat, me trying to achieve feline grace and, naturally, getting trumped by cameraman Jon White‘s cat, Isabelle.
