The Lioness' Return with Bells

Greetings, all.  I hope that you and your families are all well this fine festival season.  The Lioness has been back for the holidays for about a week now, and she brought with her the gentleman she’s been seeing.

Actually, he seems a fine fellow.  However, as her adventure in Georgia didn't pan out quite as well as she’d hoped (aside from him), it seems that the Lioness will be staying in Kansas after he goes back, preparing for his eventual move here.

Which, of course, presented the inevitable problem: where the devil do we put these people?

Fortunately, I had a scheme.  Well, actually it started out as the Laughing Mouse’s plan, and then I schemed it.  A little.

Now, you might think this would be a simple matter.  Just have the Lioness move back in to her old room, and bunk with the Wolf Cub who owns it now.  After all, sisters share space all the time, right?  However, if this had even for an instant seemed like a reasonable idea . . .

. . . you plainly don’t know the Wolf Cub in my house.  

So, this plainly called an agonizing reappraisal.

Reconstruction, carefully done.

With great precision. 

Just a small adjustment, really.

And then, viola!  New Lioness room!

At least, that’s the idea.  In the meantime, she and her gent (there is no suitably masculine equivalent in this context for “lady,” have you ever noticed?) are sharing the Transformer Couch.  It’s a work in progress.

Remember: Optimus Prime died for your sins.

In other news, no, I have not heard anything back about my Financial Aid.  Looking at when the message was sent, and when they went on vacation, mine would have been in the last batch of letters sent out as they turned out the lights and left for the holidays.  They’ll be back five days before all payments are due.  So even if I can get this straightened out in a week: hail and farewell, Spring Semester.

Still, it’s been a good holiday.  Lord of the Rings is just as stellar as it has been every year, everyone seems to like the Lioness’ beau, and the Tigress and the Raven have been enjoying immensely seeing their oldest so very happy.  And, rest assured, so have I.

Sometime again,
