Oh! This is nice. Yup, my heart and I are just starting our 14th year together.
You know, I really want to say Thank You to the people who've posted to this thread. (And to EmmaB, who sent me a "Happy Heart Day" card yesterday and now I know why.) It is lovely to connect up with all of you.
katlaughing we met Catspaw last fall; somehow, someday, we want to meet you too. Maybe if we go to Chicago for our zoo craft show in 2010. And WYWSIWYG, you've been much on my mind and I've been wishing we could visit you again but it was out of the question this year.
I've been thinking about visiting you too, Catspaw. Recently I met one of the cheetah handlers from the Columbus Zoo (I met the cheetah, too) and she wants to sell my necklaces in their zoo store. [If I can get any made in time for the holidays. Sound familiar?] She invited me out to meet and photograph their other cheetah and some of her other furred and feathered friends. It occurred to me that if that really happens maybe we could talk you and Karen into a zoo visit -- just think, you could see some fellow Mudcatters and see some Humboldt penguins. What a deal.
Love you all,
