...cat picture, since you don't really care about the rest of the silliness...
Wasn't she a lovely beast?
We do have one update on an important topic: our neighbor Ed has adopted a new cat! He found a beautiful 3-year old cat, though none of us think that she's really that old. She's a medium hair girl with a poof of a tail. We met her through the window yesterday. I don't have any pics, but I'll share one when I finally get some. We are very happy for Ed. And, for reasons that I don't understand, I'm just pleased for us, too. I suppose that this helps me believe that another cat or two abiding in ChezRanger will eventually happen.
The next update is kitchen-related. LadyRanger and I are expanding our already vast recipe book with...Paella!
We made a seafood paella last night. Shrimp, lobster, saffron, green beans and a type of pepper called Aleppo pepper. First time we've used it. The dish was a raging success. And it makes enough for us to have left overs on monday! woohoo!
