(It’s been several months, so I’m rusty… I hope you don’t mind that I’m writing again… and if you do, well, I’ll let you deal with that.) Please don’t believe me. Or even listen to me as if I know anything about anything. I’m just guessing here, making various choices based on my own experiences […]

The Mouse is growing up. And I’m not sure I like it. Now, don’t get me wrong. I am NOT one of those “Oh, I wish she could just stay this age FOREVER!” kind of people. I have fond memories from her birth (see How The Mouse Got Her Name) to the occurrences of this […]
