Thirdmate's B-Day

Stop over and say “Happy Birthday” to a fellow denizen of “The SC” — neighbor Thirdmate.

Katie Couric and he are commiserating.

Your family's presence made the day. I hope the girls weren't too alarmed by the size of the cats. Although M's wide-armed exclamation of "FAT!" (when asked what the cat looks like) is still ringing in some feline ears. Ah, youth.

If only poor kitty could hear the things she says to me. :-P

Yesterday we were selling cookies at Stop and Shop, and one of the Girl Scouts who is taller than I am said, "That lady's short!" when a smallish woman walked by, and I just started laughing.

This age (10-11) is so funny, because in ways they can be very sophisticated, and in ways they're still very "little girl." After I explained that it was funny because I'm very short, she turned red and leaned against her mother.
