Hi Kitties, Humans and Other Creatures:
The Human has been Down For The Count, as they say, basically since Valentine's Day, She made her return debut at her job today (and wasn't that a pretty thing? not) and feels that a two-day work week was just about the right re-entry speed. Absent major or minor relapses, she tells me we should reappear along about Sunday Selfie time.
This illustration she oh-so-carefully borrowed from Creative Commons (requiring as it said "no attribution" but we're scared anyway, so here) is far too youthful and flattering, but does reflect the general ambiance in Casa Spittola for the past 10 days or so. Humans. Such a bunch of whiners.
