The small book fair at the St. Louis Littery Guild was fun. I met some nice people, sold a few books, and was surprised and delighted when Lucy LuLu paid a visit.

I’m glad the second vet had the meds. I will hold Trouble in my thoughts today.

It really doesn’t matter what the Speaker does. The FBI, Homeland Security, and others have the undoctored images. Those who rioted will be prosecuted. The only thing that blurring the images does is give a false sense of security to those who did wrong.
Bad Cat Uncle…Wasn’t that a movie with Billy Cat Thornton?
Since we are correctly and justly calling out physical violence and rape in wartime against women, could we have an editorial cartoon calling out Russian soldiers’ rape of Ukrainian women since the beginning of that war?
F.Y.I., Republicans in the Senate are denying Ukraine more funds that are needed to keep fighting Russia and their attempted takeover of the democratic nation of Ukraine.
