April 1



(bottles by Gary Rith and Spike)
The vet was visiting when we got Spike a year and a half ago and said "he's about 3 and a half years old. We'll make his birthday April 1", and there it goes, Spike's birthday is on the papers: April Fool's day. If you knew him and how sweet and friendly and CLOWNISH, you'd say its a good birthday for him. He is right next to me, snoring and sleeping now, 5 years old today.

Two of these bottles go on sale today along with bowls of the same color at my my etsy gallery. You'll need them for spring flowers.

In dream land, I saw my dream hamster Robert briefly along with his friend (since when does it have a friend?) and both looked a little bedraggled because, and I am not kidding here, I havn't been thinking about them. I guess they like dream attention. Then I dreamt the missus worked for the governor and had a grey kitten in her office named Emily. Of course, we still have a striped black-grey-white kitten at home named Emily.

Nice glaze...Happy Birthday to Spike! ...and watch out, first it's just one friend, but pretty soon it will be an entire gang of dream hamsters. Or dream kittens. Wait, that sounds bad...

Happy Birthday, Spike! I remember when Gary brought you home from the ASPCA. You are quite the feline companion.

I think Robert should write a guest post.
