Maybe they can compromise. Is there a Black Sabbath Christmas album?

Here’s a Grinchy news story, with some serious implications:

https://www.npr.org/sections/goatsandso ... -christmas
. . . be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God in Christ forgave you. Ephesians 4:32 (NKJV)

The most improper job of any man, even saints, is bossing other men. Not one in a million is fit for it, and least of all those who seek the opportunity.. J.R.R. Tolkien

What amazed me from the article was that Langfang, a city of four million, is a bedroom community of Beijing. Wall to wall people

Well, her ancestors were from France, anyway, and with cats, I like to think that language is genetic. Before France, her lineage goes back to the mountains of Syria, as it's told Crusaders returning from the Middle East found these small feral cats there and brought some back to a monastery in France. And back around 1970, a few of them came to live in San Diego. Pretty cool, huh?

And, she's sweet and silly. Like me.

All cats speak Meow. Accents alone differ.

You have a Crusader cat living with you? I'd be careful, man. Deus Vult is no joke. Whatever you do, don't discuss theology.

Also, merry Christmas, brother. May you and Lucy have a wonderful holiday.
