Laura returned safely last evening. She declared that it was wonderful to be home. The cats were a bit aloof at first, since they smelled on Laura the scent of her daughter's dogs. They soon realized it was, after all, Laura and began showing her great attention.

Despite weather forecasts of rain for today, it is a perfect morning! The sun is shining brightly, the sky is blue and clear, and the birds are singing.
