Tongue Out Tuesday – Words Hurt
Sherlock blogging today. Fudge my life! Last night we were hanging out at bed time waiting for Momma Mim to do this weird thing humans do with getting ready to sleep. [If they would just turn in a circle for four or five times, lay down, and close their eyes, it would go a lot... Continue Reading →

It Wasn’t My Fault – It was going to be a Tabby Coon
