I totally agree,Raven. Cate...don't make mommy-dearest go all alpha on you in public. Nothing is more important than your health...not your house or your rugs or anything else. Do follow through on it.....and make sure your doctor knows about your nicotine intake. We might not be as tangible as you would like friends to be but we are real...and we do care about you.
PS...I have whats called Terrtiary Hypertension,Idiopathic. Idiopathic just means they dont know...but I am inclined to think it has something to do with generally being a squirrel.
