The first is discovering the Bulk and Brush Pickup Trash Collection for my area. Yay! Goodbye, old furniture I've wanted to get rid of for years!
The second is... somewhat belatedly announcing that we have a new cat, bringing the pride back up to 8. We found her at the local shelter, and fell in love pretty much instantly. She's a sweet, curious, inquisitive, dignified, ladylike female of about 8-9 months, or so we think... and we've discovered that when pissed, she has a temper and becomes a miniature blender of claws and teeth. So keep her happy, she's the nicest kitty imaginable... piss her off and she'll shred you. We keep her happy.
So then. Meet Molly... aka Molly Malone, Good Molly Miss Molly, Hurricane Molly, and Ouch! That Was My Ankle!
