I took the day off on Friday and went north with Amanda for a weekend in Bellingham. We did the usual -- visited with Nina and Sergio, went to the parks, ate at all the great local restaurants, etc.

We happened to stroll into the cat shelter at the Feed and Seed and Amanda fell in love with two cats, Finnigan and FDR (Franklin). I'll keep you posted on if she goes back up to Bellingham next weekend to pick up the cats. I also welcome your advice on whether Amanda's adopting a cat is good idea, let alone two cats.
