Happy 24th Anniversary to Karen, my love, my life, truly my everything.

31 years ago I met her for the first time and was smitten, even though, then, I was engaged to someone else. Fortunately she broke it off.

29 years ago we went on our first date! Although she did not want to admit we were dating, I hung in there. :-)

Phryne is certainly perky this morning, though. Hopping everywhere.

Cleaning with Phryne is a challenge. If she were a dog, I'd say she was claiming territory. In 20 minutes, she pooped on the shower curtain, floor, sink, countertop, and clean towel. She is also attacking my keyboard now, and has pinched her toes twice now, hollering sharply each time. I hope she learns soon and stops attacking the keyboard, **sigh**
Hope you are...

Today Phryne is still a bit snuffly and out of sorts. She's taking her meds like a champ. We'll see in a couple more days if she has to go back to the doctor's.

Took her to the doctor because of a distinct sour odor she has developed that reminded me of an infection smell. Doc is treating her for a possible systemic fungal infection and GI imbalance that could be due to her immune system being over stressed from the molt. And...
