It was all a big misunderstanding with the Canadian Authorities, but Edsel didn't know that and took off, looking for a safe haven. When Edsel stopped here in the Big Piney Woods, Mistrie saw him and told The Mom, who brought out a plate of stinky goodness, some crunchies and a big bowl of water. He and Mistrie got to really know each other, as Mistrie showed him around all her sleeping beds and the safe spot under the deck, if Edsel needs a hideout. They checked out the catolympics race track and the climbing tree. Then, Mittens and I had a nice chat with him, throught the screen. Edsel shared fond memories of home in the Mitten State and his love for his Furless Ones. He took a long nap while Mistrie stood guard, just in case. After finding out it was all a misunderstanding and his Mom missed him greatly, Edsel went home to be with the ones he loves.
To Derby: Yes, there was a mudslide here, but it was up on the big hill where the people put the sticks on their feet and slide down. It went right through a condo. (Thankfully, nobody was there at the time.) It has been 90 degrees here for three days now, we have broken all time records for heat and the snow is melting fast. There are flood warnings out for the rivers, but we are all safe and sound. Thanks so much for your concern.
