Mark heard my call and supplied me with part 14 of this magnum opus. Much obliged.
I am wondering how many people reading this blog post have a cat. Notice I didn't say "own a cat". It is impossible to own a cat. They just keep us around to feed them and change their litter boxes. Newbie struts around the house behaving as if he had just paid off my mortgage.
I have written a lot about Newbie. According to one of my 4.7, I write about him too much. I have also written about my first cat, J.R., who found us in 1980. Believe it or not, I still think of him, even though he disappeared on us back in 1986.
I love cats. A big regret of mine is that I did not have a cat from when J.R. went away until Newbie, in 1986. 20 years, with no cat in my life. What was wrong with me?
At any rate, I have a cat now, and he's my buddy. He is next to me cleaning himself as I type these words.
As usual, Mark Dooley, thank you for letting me be your official Canadian distributor of your excellent work.
See you tomorrow, with a special post.
