Sorry for not posting... I'm away for two weeks. The owners of Sparkles (the bead shop where I used to teach) are on vacation in Hawaii and asked me to help hold down the fort while they're gone. So their daughter Lisa and I are having a good time playing with millions of shiny objects and helping customers design jewelry. My pal Cheryl conveniently lives near the shop, so I'm staying with her. I hadn't seen her since June, so my Cheryl tank needed a refill.
Meanwhile I am told Riley has taken over my side of the bed; Steve says she seems a little down. I miss her, but I have a bunch of furry friends to play with in the meantime.
