Good news! Dad got to come home from the hospital yesterday. We were so happy to see him. He actually had to shut me out of the office for a while so he could catch up on some paperwork, because I would NOT stay off his keyboard. Can't help it. I'm a devoted fan of Dad.
The only hard part was getting from the street to our front door, because Mom made a tactical error in not hauling out the snowthrower as soon as it stopped snowing Wednesday (well, it was dark by that time, after all).
Thursday morning, the driveway was 6 inches of snow under 2 inches of ice. The snowthrower just rolled over the top -- couldn't even break through it. It took Mom three hours to break the ice and shovel it away, a little at a time, ahead of her car to get it out. And even then she needed the help of two strangers to stop traffic and help her "rock" it out of the driveway and onto the street.
The driveway is still impassable, but she chiseled out a pathway from the street to the door for Dad, and sanded it down. Going to be a while before we park in the driveway again.
Today, Mom got us signed up at Cathugger, and we've already seen some of our friends there. They have some fun games to play (Kibbles is already winning trophies for his Word Game skills!). Mom wiped out at the Cyberhorde game, and is No. 21,900 or something on the leaderboard for another game. Maybe she'll get better. Maybe not. She's really there to stay in touch with our Catster friends.
We hope to see more of you there soon, but if not, we hope you will let us know where you will be so we can reach our good friends.
