Good and Bad

The Good Excellent: In the first 24 hours, the not-a-raffle has already raised over $400 for rape crisis centers, more than triple what we raised using an auction model. My thanks to everyone for their generosity, and for spreading the word.

The Bad: My cat Flop has a mass on his lip that needs to be surgically removed.  The vet isn’t too worried … but they’re worried enough to operate.  Flop’s the one who used to snuggle up with my daughter every night before bed.  I’m pretty sure he’ll be okay, but it’s reminding me that all three cats are 13 years old.  They’re not young beasts anymore.

The Bizarre: Found a white hair.  On my arm.  Do not want.  Not because getting older bothers me, but because it’s really funky-looking.
