Pi Fornier

First the notices came addressed to Guinness Leclair, and then Disraeli Haynes. Reminders from their doctor to get their immunizations updated. The messages seemed simultaneously ludicrous and touching. It was a pleasing thought that Guinness, being the elder of the two cats, might lift the receiver of our 1988 Harmony Touch phone, dial Dr. Gary and meow her way to an appointment. Last summer Dan volunteered at our local veterinary hospital and regaled us with the best names: Tippy Fong-Dingler (the Burmese longhair), Spanky Richardson (the ridgeless Ridgeback), Jingles McPhee (the Corgi cross). A kindergarten roll call for little gangsters.

  1. Dudes, there's a website called Magpie Tales where a photo is posted and contributors are invited to write a poem or a piece of prose about said poem. Over 600 people follow the site and usually over 60 bloggers contribute per week. I think you could up your readership this way. The catch is you have to play nice nice and visit read some of the other writer's work. You should check it out.
