Laska, I’d love a recording of you singing… ♫♫♫♪♪♫♫♫
You are one photogenic cat; love those pics of you!
And love you too Laska! Take care and stay safe in your cozy home.

Layla Payton September 14, 2011 at 5:58 pm

I’d love a recording too! And what do publishers know??? Pish-posh. I have three boys, and I am telling you…this is GREAT!

The part about “then messy person” cracked me up! The ending was sweet. :)

I left a reply for you in “The Carpenter’s Shop.” I hope you’ll stop by to read it.

Be blessed. Thank you for blessing us.


Craig September 19, 2011 at 5:52 pm

Layla, first you know I’m sorry for being late to reply. And thank you for your pish posh to the publishers. I heart your encouragement. You know me though – I’m still working on accepting the nice words I hear from really nice people like you. I’m getting there ツI got your idea about an artist – I’d really heart someone – a mom – I heart the heart of moms – I’d heart a mom – a blogger maybe – to illustrate. You be blessed too! You are a blessing to me.

Dear Laska,

So now I know how you get outside without a leash. My muttlies can go without leashes, too, but people don’t know that so I have them on one so people aren’t scared to pass us. I like winter on the bike path better–there is no one else out there then. Will your water place be ice in winter? I love to ice skate. You might like it, too.

Will love to hear you when you can figure out the sound system,

I’m sorry, again, I’m so late in replying. But two weeks ago there was a week without near zero sleep. And this last week I’ve been overwhelmed with sadness for Sara Frankl. And as I stand vigil over Sara, from afar, along with so many others, and tears become as natural as breath, I’ve fallen behind, in reading – and commenting – and replying – and I’m sorry, because I heart your comments, and so today, finally, through the sad, powered by hope, and faith, and love, here’s my reply… I heart that you have been so patient with me…

… it’s actually better that I reply now – I’m smiling for the first in a while – as for you and your muttlies – I’m sure Laska would only say – there are leash laws for dogz for a reason ツthere is one small dog, and every time he sees him go by when go for a walk, he actually begins to stalk him – it’s funny to see – he gets down low like a lion than the grass – and stalks!! and there will be no ice-skating – for either of us – Kitty skates are expensive. God bless and keep you Dawn – you and the muttlies.

Craig September 18, 2011 at 8:24 pm

Victoria, it’s Sunday night as I write this response – you know I’m sorry for being so late – and Laskish is a little hard to write when my heart is this heavy. Your first attempt at Laskish is an honorable one ツ and deserves a reply in Laskish – next time I promise.Anyway – Laska is Czech for love. Laska is literally named love ツ
