I am now the proud owner of a cute kitten named Chloe. After begging Walt for few weeks to let me have a kitten, he finally gave in last Saturday. My timing was probably not the best since I am in the middle of my law school exams and since Walt and I will be gone for 2 weeks after Christmas. Oh well. I have learned a few things about cats this past week. First, they do not always smell good. I am greatful that she inherently knows how to use a litter box, but I am not a big fan of cleaning it out. Second, cats (even little kittens) do not cuddle on command. Although she lets me pick her up and pet her, she will quickly jump out of my arms. I imagined studying peacefully and having my little kitten curled up in my lap. She will only come in my lap if she wants to. I guess that is the nature of a cat. When I get a digital picture, I will post it. Maybe this cat will teach me some life lessons (like patience and you don't always get what you expect).

Christmas Trees

Hard to believe that it is already stinkin' Decemeber. Now I know that a lot of folks have the idea that since it is Decemeber it is time to put up Christmas Trees. BACK THE TROLLY TRAIN UP!
Before we get all crazy with this Christmas Tree talk, we need to remember to celebrate an important day in US History - Decemeber 7th. Before we go half hazardly throwing up trees and decorations, we need to remember the day that started WWII, yes Pearl Harbor Day. The day that will "forever live infamy."
The second reason Decemeber 7th is important is because of a little known man's birthday, Walt Tanner! With that said. We still sit with no decorations and tree untill the celebration of Dec 7th!
