A first time!

Bloggie friends! 

2012 was such a year for me!
With some writerly joy for my story (see side bar! LOL!)
But best of all this year for me
Was having Charlie and little Gumtree!


Charlie says: I cannot ignore those laser eyes!

Gumtree says: I like my first trip outside! 

Old Kitty says: See you all  in 2013!

Kitty, you had a wonderful year!
Now, go save Charlie before Gumtree singes his fur.

Mark said...

Gumtree DOES appear to have laser eyes. I'm glad that he enjoyed the trip out, and that 2012 has been a pretty good year. New cats always make it a good year.

mshatch said...

Brian said...
