Happy St. Nick's Day!
When I was about 6, my parents gave me a diary/almanac thingy. It was a big paperback with a page for each day of the year, and it provided a little factoid and backstory about each day, and had a space for you to write down what you did that day. My parents rue the day they gave it to me* because I learned about all sorts of neat holidays that I could use as an excuse for presents. St. Nick's Day was one, and we celebrate it even today.
And a good holiday it has been thus far. I took Sam to the vet and his feline leukemia test came back negative, so we're stylin'. He grew from 2 lbs, 3 oz to a beefy 4 lbs, 8 oz. I think when we take him in for his last shots/boosters in 3 weeks, he'll be heavier than Saffron, who has never topped 6 lbs and change. Maybe that's why she's been nicer to him lately.
And we're also getting nailed by the winter storm afterall. Not as bad as the Midwest and Mid-Atlantic states, but we should have a reasonable 12 inches by tomorrow. Yay!
* They also rue the day my grandmother gave me the book "Jokes, Puns and Riddles". Somehow the tome mysteriously disappeared after a few months of my annoying them with all sorts of bad jokes.
