Blogger Comment Update: Comments are now operational. Blogger tech support addressed this issue last evening, and all is now well.

Happy Groundhog Day! Punxsutawney Phil predicts early spring. I sincerely hope that Phil is correct, since I greatly long for the arrival of spring! This morning was cold and foggy. It is now clear, sunny, and warming, but there was a dense covering of ice on RAMMMMM's windshield this morning.

Laura will be leaving from work this afternoon to journey to The Spring of Living Water—11 miles from Chico—to attend a Christian retreat. The cats and I shall be on our own. We shall miss Laura a good deal. She will return from the retreat Sunday afternoon.

RAMMMMM Update - 10 AM: The transport company just called. They will be picking RAMMMMM up at 3 PM today to transport him to his new home in Colorado.

Laura will pick her new Toyota Yaris up at 1 PM today. We shall put her 1996 Toyota Paseo in AutoTrader.

My new Dodge Nitro R/T will be delivered here by the dealership—hopefully by 4 PM, since I will be on foot!
