In breaking news: the cat came back. I'm not sure why. He was not interested in food. Just stopped in to say 'hey', I suppose. I haven't seen him since Saturday morning, so if he's not hungry, he certainly has a home some place else. He came into the kitchen while I bagged up some pumpkin puree for the freezer. He rubbed against my legs and meowed a little and then went back out the door. I'm not sure what to do with him now. Continue treating his mange (which does look better), I suppose.
William is coming after school. He is excited that his books have arrived in the mail. His mother called. He's been taking bagpipe lessons and needs to practice every night for a half hour. It's been a while since we've had a musician in the house.
It is supposed to snow on Saturday, with light accumulations possible. I will not complain...I've read Red's post.
