I am doing some “speed reading” and not many comments. With everything going on I have not had time or energy to do much on WP… so I am trying like crazy to “catch up.” I apologize for not taking the time to comment like I usually do, but I have got to do something to speed things up and I don’t want to miss any of what you all write.

She bounded down the stairs with a fervent energy, ready for a quick breakfast and then off to the shelter. Her parents greeted her in the kitchen with balloons and an off-key version of Happy Birthday and asked if she had decided on a dog or cat.
“Who ever I find that needs the most love,” she said.
