One week from today, July 21, we will celebrate our one-year blogoversary. We can’t believe how quickly that year flew by. We have a big surprise planned for Mom that day. And we suspect she might have some surprises for those of you reading on the 21st.

In somewhat related news, Mom is finally changing the poem that appears in the sidebar. She’s been wanting to do this for quite awhile, but couldn’t carve out enough time to write something that pleased her. Her goal has always been to try to change it quarterly, but as we said, the time has flown by so quickly. The “Cat Conspiracy” poem will move to it’s own page. As poems are retired, they too will be moved there.

Finally, Mom has turned on CommentLuv so when you leave a comment the title of and link to your most recent post appears with it. If for some reason, you don’t want this to appear (we can’t imagine why anyone wouldn’t), you can uncheck the CommentLuv box.


So that’s it for today. Take it easy, like Calista Jo, right after you circle the 21st on your calendar.

Purrs and hugs, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo
