There was no newsletter sent out for the past week. I posted  I was taking time off to visit friends and relatives from Arizona and Oregon. I did not state that I was going to Arizona to see them. I did not want anyone to know that I was not at home for security reasons. A friend took care of the cats while I was gone. Both Ditto and Little One are glad I am back home. I got to see my brother Joe and his wife Joyce. I saw my sister-in-law Betty and her sisters from Alaska and Oregon. It was a great trip but it is always great to come back home.
