Update Rundown

I spent the last week, ok, mostly driving, but this included three days at a college reunion.  Campus has changed a lot--I got completely lost in the huge science building--but the town looked great.  One of my best friends from kindergarten/early elementary teaches art there now and I saw her in person for the first time in 28 years.

Lots of pix .

I've found three more cockatoos for my Morton (Illinois) pottery cockatoo flock.  I think I'm up to ten variants:

Rhodochrosite (Rhoda) is full of energy as only a seven-week-old kitten can be.  Mispickel is still not on board but she hasn't attacked the door--Dad put a screen door in the upstairs hallway--and the grumping and redirected aggression has diminished.
