Always tough to find time for the blog...... The latest news would be Bridget's B-day present was getting a cat but after applying at the humane society and getting cat litter and all that , and actually looking at all the cute kittys, we decided that all future travel plans would be canceled if we got a kitty. So no kitty. Sometimes it takes going through the paces of getting a pet to put you close enough to the reality of ownership and responsibility, just to realize that is a bad idea. Chickens anyone?
