It’s been a while…I’ve been incredibly busy the last couple of weeks so what spare time I’ve had I focused on just (k)nitting rather than writing about. I’m not really going to write about knitting today either because I’m just not feeling the love for writing about knitting. I do want to share that I’m undergoing a crew change here. Stash Cat has disappeared and has been missing in action for almost a week. While I’m still hoping that this is a temporary disappearance, I’ve learned that several other cats in the neighborhood have disappeared recently. So I’ve chosen to say goodbye to Stash and move on. If he comes back, he’ll be welcomed with open arms and kitty cuddles by both me and his other mother who lives across the street and spoiled him even more than I did. I do believe that he helped me find his replacement.
I have been considering adding a canine member to the crew and around the first of March out local shelter posted an eight month old terrier/beagle mix named Gilligan. I’d planned a day trip for March 16 and decided that, if Gilligan was still there on St Paddy’s Day which was the date I got Debit D Dog, I’d go to the shelter and check him out. I didn’t leave work on that day till late and had an appointment which didn’t allow time to go see Gilligan. So I was going the next day but decided to wait until later this week when I had to be in that area. Then Stash disappeared and, even though he’s chipped, I felt compelled to physically go to the shelter to check for him. While there on Saturday, I met Gilligan and totally fell in love. They were very busy so I decided to think about it and come back later. Monday morning found me calling to be sure that Gilligan was still there. He was and, when they opened at noon, I was there to “gotcha” Gilligan. He will be coming aboard after vetting on Wednesday afternoon. We were pretty excited yesterday and this the best of all the bad pictures.
So goodbye, Stash. I’ll see you later either when you return home or at the rainbow bridge and
Welcome aboard to Gilligan, my new first mate.
Till next time, no frogs, no tinks, just (k)nits.
