Awards and Good News!

Here's Dorydoo and me and Brainball on the window perchie! We love it when Momma and Daddy can open the windows. We've had some warm days recently, and we've loved 'em!



And here's Marilyn waitin her turn on the perchie. Not long after this pickshure, she ran us all off and had the perchie to herself! GURLZ!



We Ballicai got some kool awards frum our furriends! Lucy and Trixie at Two Sisters and our furriends at Curlz and Swirlz gave us the Furriends Awardie:



And we got the Proximity Awardie from Tybalt.



Thankies so much! We Ballicai are furry honored.

Last but not leasties, one of Momma's novels, Mirror Blue, has been accepted fur publication! Isn't that ecksiting? Her publisher is looking at a May release date for her novel. Wowie! She's got more infurmation on her bloggie, where she'll keep effurybody updated. She's workin on an author website, too, which she's plannin to launch soon. Momma's really stoked! (Don't worry, Momma's a much better spellur than I am.)

So please bear with us, all our furriends, while we get caught up on our visiting. Momma's soooooo buzzy these days, but she's gonna make sure that we Ballicai get to keep blogging!

Happy Valentine's Day to effurybodies -- to my wife Ariel, to Dorydoo's sweetie Earl Grey, to Marilyn's sweetie Mickey Mantle, to Brainball's sweetie Patches, and to alla our furriends. We Ballicai love you and we're sendin purrs all around!
