Do you dream your apartment has secret rooms just waiting for you to find?

Don’t you think it’s time you adopted a cat?

    I am enthralled with everything about this post–except the cat. I do not think it is time for me to adopt a cat because I would die from fright. On this point, I think I’ve found our only difference of opinion, Ingrid. Have I mentioned that I have cat phobia???? I realize that this is very unlibrarian-like of me and I do apologize to my brethern for that. Are the vintage clothes on their way in or on their way out? It’s a wonderful litle circle, isn’t it?

    • Those vintage clothes are here to stay. But I recently let go of a lot of stuff for consignment and donation. You’re right, it’s a great little cycle.
      Scared of cats? A little story about Lila, the cat in the picture: I was staying with my Gpa when he was very sick and his home health care worker was PETRIFIED of Lila. I couldn’t believe it–she only has 3 legs and is so docile. But the worker, Alex, would scream if Lila came near him (apparently he was attacked by a dog when he was a kid living in the Phillipines. He just didn’t like cats or dogs). One night, I heard Alex singing in Tagalog. I went into the living room, and there he was, cradling Lila like a baby. His explanation was that he decided Lila was more like a person than a cat.
      Anyway, people who hate cats love Lila. She’s the great equalizer. But, I promise to not send her to visit you! Pinky swear!
