I really liked The Count of Monte Cristo when I read it. What made it even more interesting is that it is apparently (loosely) based on a death-bed confession of a man who was this close to finally having his revenge, but never got to finish the deed. The way I recall it was that a friend of Dumas heard the confession and relayed the idea of it because it was so interesting….
Been in The Orb since before we came to GoComics, so long before the papers caught on.
Good job on your son’s part. I love going to the Nutcracker! I have a ticket for a show this afternoon in fact. No little relatives in the show, just a spectator.
Loaner cat? You are borrowing one? Or is Loaner her name? Back when my father was a bachelor, he had a cat named Lonesome, called Loner as a nickname….
In my family, we give each other a few ideas. My brother would always say giftcards. So last year I put his giftcard in a wrapped box. The giftcard had about 15 layers of wrapping paper on it. Every few layers, there was a note like “Almost there….” “Keep going….” “Sure you want a gift card next year?” This year, he made us all a “real” list! lol
well, with the way the cat hair will stick around…. lol
No vet has ever been able to get a temp on Kaboodle. It is an indignity that she will not tolerate. So…. they check the rest of her and say she’s good!
We also spay/neuter our pets. Try not to overthink it all too much, or this goes very disturbing, very quickly.
What do you get when you eat too many Christmas Decorations?Tinsel-itis.
My Kaboodle is blessedly uninterested in the tree and decor. When I first bring the tree in, before I start to decorate, she gives it a good sniff, maybe mouths a branch for a few seconds just to see what it is. After that there is no mystery and it’s just another bit of furniture. She sits under it perfectly content to have another hiding place and does not try to play with or destroy it.
