Peekaboo: A groundhog/woodchuck was taking a look around from a nifty hiding place, and was kind enough to hang around for a picture, or two, or three...
The Other Half has returned from a journey to the Bluegrass State, and that was very, very good news. Especially for our kitties. Don't get me wrong. Yours truly was glad, as in very glad, to see her return home. Taking care of home, sweet, home all by one's self is, well, hard work. Then again, I...

So, I'm going through the Monday morning routine, getting ready to start another week at The Paragraph Factory.  I glance out the back door.
