We don’t have a new home yet, but things are starting to look up. Calico put an ad on craigslist, which snagged two inquiries. We’re very excited about one in particular, which is about three miles from the university and definitely in the country. Then she received a response on an inquiry that she made a couple weeks ago. It is a stone’s throw from school, which would be a great time saver and eliminate the need to drive. Calico will be taking an overnight trip to view them – date to be scheduled.

Come walk into the light.
The Golden Years beach resort was inspired. Its slogan was not. (90)

She had been privileged to live in luxury. Visitors envied the expansive home, but she treasured golden sand, blue seas and swaying palms. (140)

Confusion immobilized Monty. Which room was his?
Door #1? Door #2? Door #3? (77)

I’ve become jaded in my old age. I used to enjoy Let’s Make A Deal. Now it looks like a long commercial. I did feel a bit of nostalgia for $4000 Buicks.

Thanks to Pat and Jerry for this week’s photo.

Sorry that I haven’t visited anyone this week. I’ve not been feeling well and still am not up to much. Hopefully, I’ll be shaping up soon.

Miss Muffin is looking forward to an afternoon with friends at a local splash park to celebrate the end of the school year. The weather is perfect and I know that she will have a great time. We didn’t have splash parks, when I was a kid. We did have a garden hose with a spray nozzle and spent many a warm summer day creating our own water park.

Sara had dreamed of a fluffy white kitten, who wore a pink bow and spent its days sitting on her lap. Until she met Tiger. (124)

Tiger’s dream of a playmate had finally been realized. If only he could find its head and tail. (95)

A future as an exercise ball instructor? Not likely. Soccer wasn’t looking good either. It’s tough when dreams collide with reality. (136)
