You've been selected!!

I was asked this week to evaluate a business deal. I don't usually do much in the line of consulting but luckily this one didn't take any real training: I know a good deal when I see it!!!

Today at the store I ran into another gringa that recently got to Chile. I know who she is because she is living with a family I know. We checked out together and started walking home in Valparaiso; it was no sooner than when I completed the phrase,

"Everybody says the men in Chile are real gentlemen,..."

... when some man on the street gave my backside a big squeeze.

Do as I do...

I wonder how my older cat Daisy really regards the newer kitten... as a sister? an adopted child? ...a roommate? ... a true intruder? hahaha

Rayita is going to be full grown soon, and she's been trying to do everything just like her role model. They follow one another around, teasing one another. Daisy has all the ideas first, then Rayita will try to copy the same thing afterwards. Bad habbits included. She even learned the same trick way to open the bathroom door. If one does it, the other must too. Rayita is still desperately trying to figure out how to get outside and how to climb on the kitchen table, because, unlike Daisy, she hasn't figured out how to get around us yet.

I think Daisy is flattered to have a little mini-me to lead around.

Can you believe she was ever once so small?
