Caroline Plots.

If I could just get to the phone and call Terminix, I bet I could be rid of that little pest Ivan forever! They even have a guarantee!

Look Before You Leap.

Yeah, like I would ever do that. I'm Ivan the Invincible! I'm just trying to decide if I want to leap is all.

Calming Caps Back On.

We're pretty much back to normal.

Mom is no longer dog tired. (Ha ha ha ha!) And, bonus! Mom decided that some of that dog money will get us an exterior Coolaroo shade for the balcony door! We think this will not only help with our constant summer sun exposure but cut way down on the whining about how hot it is inside.

El and I share our glee over this anticipated improvement. We guess dogs have some actual purpose after all.

Happy St. Patrick's Day, everyone!

Whinoline will not be getting her Amazon wishlist fulfilled. (As if Izzy and I would ever agree to living on the balcony!) Plus, even if we were of a mind to spend, Bast knows we would opt to buy "that new iPhone." (We'd even talk Mom into donating her still-in-use 2004 cell to the House of Representatives.)

And why are our tails in a puff over the Amazon tax issue when others have paid tax on purchases for eons? First, Amazon has no physical presence in this state. Second, it is -- at least to the ordinary folks who live here -- completely out of the blue. Third, neither Amazon nor the State will comment as to how this came about. I have the answer. It's clearly the work of
