Growing Fast

Update for my readers on my precious kitten, Granuaile Rose. She is doing fantastic! There is rarely a dull moment with her around. In summary, Granuaile is excitable, playful, cuddly, and endlessly curious. Sometimes this gets the best of her, there have been multiple rescue missions already. She is a kitten of routine though.

Juicy Dirt Slinging

A.K.A. Gossip Standing in a group of friends one afternoon, an innocent conversation began taking an alternate turn. Rather than clothing styles, the chatter quickly slid off into complaining and gossiping. Somebody had a rough morning because of so-and-so, then someone else repeats a rumor about a mutual acquaintance, and on it goes. Strangely (or…
