Here’s my little friend, Maddie. When I didn’t see him in the barn, I would worry. Now I know where he spends a lot of his time. During the day he snoozes on the patio underneath our deck. He must feel secure, don’t you think? I’ve been warned that I’ll be a blubbering fool, when I see a hawk swoop down and carry him away. There is always somebody in the crowd, who must remind us of the reality of things.
