What's the dragon's name?

With love,

I'm not sure. She won't tell us her true name. I just call her "Dragon".

Just keep on, don't mind me. I'll have some coffee and just read for a bit. Nudge me if I snore.

Mamma and Papa have always told me I had a wonderful imagination and a good sense of humor. Maybe this part of me will fit well in here, yes?

Can I sell Dawgluver upriver to the Gypsies? She's retired now, and they would keep her busy.

This is fun!

One of the kittens is named Buttons. I always wanted to name a pet Buttons. So I got to name one of the two kitties. They did come home with me for a while. They were getting so fat from everyone feeding them. So I put them on a strict diet, and exercised them daily with playtime. When they got back to the DC Manor, I gave strict instructions that no one was to feed them. That would be the duty of the house elves.

When I am not feeling well, I come there with my needlework. I sit in the rocker with a cup of coffee and the kitties jump up on my lap. I play with them and after a while I make them get down so I can play with them with their toys and give them some exercise. Then I sit and work on my needlework. I don't get too much done though. I usually fall asleep until someone comes along and wakes me up.

Sometimes the house elves get upset with me. I see evidence of them playing instead of cleaning like they are supposed to. "That dang old lady. She doesn't miss a thing." I can hear them mumbling under their breath.

Too bad you weren't there Cat at the beginning when we were building. Some of those construction workers were hunks worthy of a calendar of their own.

Oh no. YOU come down here a lot? I'm in trouble! I guess there won't be any spitting contests with the house elves any more.

I did clean it up.

What kind of music would you like for me to play, and I'll keep you all company today. It's snowing so I'm not going out, and the house elves cleaned the cat fur and dragon snot off the piano.

Brahms today? Chopin? Handel? Bartok?

That deaf guy?

With love,
~Cat

Right now I am listening to a two hour YouTube of Mozart. His music is so pure. One of these days I am going to dig out an empty disc and download his music.

That deaf guy is Beethoven.

Ha! I know, I was making a joke.

I do love Mozart, but Bartok is my current favorite right now.

This evening, I'm playing an old favorite. Come on in and enjoy! I know everyone will recognize this one. The deaf guy wrote it. Ha!

Looks like most folks have gone off to bed around our little clubhouse here. That's OK, I'll just set a bit with my mystery book and my glass of wine and enjoy the last of the embers from whatever fire some sweetie had going in the fireplace earlier tonight. BTW, I checked the stock of our coffee supply and it looks like a lot of you have been bringing some of those K-cups to use. How nice! Now if someone wants to get us one of those reusable baskets I wouldn't mind bringing in a bag of the stuff. No Keurig in our house, we make our Joe by the pot-full!

I've been up making Catina II's cookbook, DC on the Black Sea and I'm so tired.

Let us relax with this:

And good night.

With love,
~Cat
