Description

Okay, I was watching the opening ceremonies of the Olympic Games, and suddenly a woman with an umbrella flew over the stage.

"Who is THAT?" Miss Kitty asked, sitting beside me eating popcorn. (She has eclectic tastes).

"Mary Poppins, a magical nanny," I replied.

Oh, I want to be magical, Miss Kitty thought to herself, popping the last kernel in her mouth.
And I want to fly.

So she ran to the closet, grabbed an umbrella, and ran back and took my hat with the duck feathers, (her lucky hat). The last thing I heard as she floated into the sky was
" Yippee!!!!Supercalifragilisticexp...."

What a cat. She may be visiting you.

Miss Kitty adventures continue with more fun in the digital darkroom.
