Today I received some sad news at the microcosm. Louie the Loaner Dog, who has visited here several times and who taught me that not all chihuahuas are yappy and snappy, passed away during the holidays. I will miss his cuddles and frenetic playing with his rat toy as well as his sweet and gentle disposition. Such a character, our little Louie.
Louie in August of 2018 with his favorite rat toy.
Louie, dear one, you were much loved and you will be missed.

First off, a song of hope.
I haven’t done a serial in so long that I think I may have forgotten how to write one. This one has its unfortunate inspiration from the storm brewing off the coast of the eastern US. As always, I welcome your input. If you have suggestions or criticisms, tell me (you know, as long as they’re about the story) ;). Thanks. And, if I’m a bit rusty, please forgive me. 🙂 Continue reading
