King & Lion

I'm not cheating. Much. This post is not about Lion King and I'm reversing the words just to get K and L in the right order, so we are good there. But yes, I am cheating by wrapping two posts into one but I'm allowed a little lee-way. Daily posting takes its toll, you know?... Continue Reading →

The Owl and the Pussycat
