You would never know summer is less than a week away because it sure doesn't feel like it.

My wood pile is being depleted daily. Don't rush with the swimsuit collection this season.

Cat's diary...

DAY 752 - My captors continue to taunt me with bizarre little dangling objects. They dine lavishly on fresh meat, while I am forced to eat dry cereal. The only thing that keeps me going is the hope of escape, and the mild satisfaction I get from ruining the occasional piece of furniture. Tomorrow I may eat another houseplant.
