Dark thoughts dominate my days. How could it be otherwise, with headlines like these: Man accused of robbing, beating elderly women mistakenly released from jail and New Orleans’ future bleak, historian says and Mom gave teen a gun for revenge slaying and Many residents of New Orleans consider leaving and A culture’s sad finale?
And to top it off Biggs has disappeared.
But I do have one piece of good news.
In the last four weeks Milo has killed four mice. This proves we have a big mouse population, but then again, I already knew that. The good news is Milo’s not yet fully grown. He’s only about six months old. It seems like it was just yesterday that we adopted him, a tiny kitten who could barely walk.
I am confident that his mousing skills will develop even further.
I know it ain’t much, but it’s about all we’ve got going for us right now.
