Meet Millie

Meet Millie, a companion for Mollie. Millie is actually Mollie's real-life sister as they're from the same litter.

Rats are social creatures and we wanted Mollie not to be alone. We picked up Millie today. Maddie is now the proud owner of two young rats.

Gaming with Grandma - 118

Just a quick game of Der Schwarze Pirat for Grandma, Maddie and I this morning. Maddie and Grandma made some great moves but alas, the winds were not kind to me. It was fun to see some pirate action between Grandma and I, each giving as good as we took. Final scores were 1st Maddie with 17 gold, 2nd Grandma with 15 gold, and 3rd Wayne with 4 gold.
