Meet Francesca

I entered this world on December 13, 2004, in Pinewood, Minnesota. I’m a bit older and certainly far wiser than Sharkey. Like Sharkey, I’m also friendly and quite curious, but I’m more cautious about letting my curiosity get me into trouble. I must admit that we do have fun together. I just know when to stop. Martha describes me as being a bit obsequious, but that’s just my ability to pull the wool over her eyes. I’m just clever! I do have a high opinion about myself, and my fashion sense is magnifique! In fact, Je suis fabuleuse (I am fabulous.)

I had nothing to read the other day, so I picked up the March issue of the Maine Antique Digest, one of Martha’s favorite antiques publications.  It’s filled with all sorts of ads for antique shows around the country and also some very interesting articles about antiquities.  One article, in particular, caught my attention about …

It’s a good thing I looked on Martha’s calendar because I suddenly realized that Sharkey’s seventh birthday is this Saturday!  You may recall my birthday last December, when Sharkey got creative in the kitchen and whipped me up a special treat.  Well, I wanted to reciprocate.  Please have a look.

I was wandering around the house the other day when I realized that the fur balls were nowhere to be found.  They usually drape themselves all over the furniture, but I couldn’t find a single cat anywhere.  That’s when I thought I’d go to the basement laundry room and have a look down there.

The other day, I got a whiff of something strange at the farm, like the presence of an alien creature.  Then, I saw a flash of an auburn color out of the corner of my eye and I realize that there was an alien creature at the farm!!

Yesterday was not a nice day at the farm, as it was rainy and chilly.  We, Frenchies, needed to go outside and I had to find our warm rain jackets.  While we were outdoors, Sharkey and I became concerned about a grove of trees and made an inspection.
