Well I started a new contract yesterday and I'm surprised once again at how little someone who lives here knows English. Pretty much all he knows is yes and no. I'm sure it's the same with Americans in some of the southwestern states with Spanish. (Heck, I was one of them.) This new guy I've got is awful nice but has professed to having failed French in school, his mother tongue. I have a feeling I'm going to be pulling my hair out over the next five weeks. I'll be practicing my patience that's for sure.
Here is our new upstairs neighbor's kitty. When Serge told me about the "ugly Egyptian cat" I went upstairs to check it out. So Cute! We were up there because Serge was changing a light fixture. I was holding the kitty (who purred up a storm every time you touched her) and Serge kept calling out to be careful because they cost $1200. Later on he told me we could get one if I wanted since they are easier to care for than a dog. I'll take both but if I have to choose only one, it's going to be a dog. Still, isn't she adorable? It's not really hairless, but the hair is so short it's like it was recently shaved. I thought she looked like something from Lord of the Rings.
Finally today, I've got a little video that I took at mom's house out in California. I had invited my cousin and her hubby and daughter over to play and I asked if they knew how to dive. They didn't! I got Carley to show me her "dive". The video is her second attempt. I think it's hilarious (in the lovingest possible way) especially since right after this video she asked, "Did my head hit the water first?"
