    Two Great Girls

    My eldest will be off to college in September, and I'm going to miss her so much. At least I have another one (age 15) to focus on. Then what? More cats, I guess!

    Thanks For Nothing Orkin!

    The Orkin man came today, says I've got Teenagers, but he couldn't do anything about them.  So much for that pest control.  Lol! I don't actually have the children, they are my mother's, but they live with me and I suffer too damnit!
