Re: Re: Forsythia/Cats and Beans

Ha - good one Melody. Ruling cats, now that is funny. Every morning when
I leave and see Sugar snoozing or looking at me, I think - hmm, stay
home and sleep and eat and play all day or go to work w/ knuckleheads
and stress. Who's the smart one here, let me think....
