April 16 – I have wild violets that also grow in the dirt around my walkway.  They come back here every year.

I’m staying home this trip to get the cats used to each other.  Hobie is still caterwauling.  Dory is unimpressed.  Sadie has decided her new job (since she doesn’t have chickens to protect) is to protect Dory when Hobie stalks her.  There’s a lot of “leave the kitty” commands being said.
