MaoMao: Alla us Ballicai are still here! *whew*, we're sorry we've been scarce. Momma's been superduper buzzy cuz she's got a novel that'll be published in May, and she's workin on another one (you can read updates at her web site). All of that is nice fur Momma, but we Ballicai miss our furriends!
Marilyn: What, Mom's actually helping us blog today? I'm amazed! Somebody pinch me. I might be dreaming!
Brainball: Comfy fleece shirt and a yellow jellybean for a pillow... zzzzzzzzzz.....
MaoMao: Okeydokeys, I'm goin back to sleep now. I've been on vakashun in Hawaii with my sweetiepie and wife, Ariel, and we hadded a great time. So I'm havin sweet dreams!
Dorydoo: Well, since Mom is helping us blog, I will pose prettily for the flashy box!
Speaking of boxes, here's what our box looks like now. Both Brainball and Marilyn like to chew on it then spit out the cardboard. Momma sweeps up piles of cardboard every day. Soon it won't be much of a box at all, and Momma will have to throw it away and get us a new one!
