Desdemona died sometime in the night. Aunt Ada had had the cat since she was a tiny kitten, and she was naturally heartbroken. So was Boots, Desdemona's partner in crime and play and food and everything else that makes life worthwhile for two old cats.

This is going to be good, Dud thought, bringing his new tarp out to the car. There it was on that computer site. How to camp out with just a single tarp. I've been looking for something like that for a long time now. Amazing what you can find on the internet.

He couldn't get Anita to go with him, because she just didn't have the same outdoor curiosity that Dud had. Hey, it's kinda scientific in a way, you know.

Movie Review – Pete’s Dragon

Movie Review 2 Stars

By Bob Garver

Disney has had a lot of success lately with live-action versions of animated classics like "Cinderella" and "The Jungle Book." Now they're trying to have success with a live-action version of a 1977 film that was half animated and half live action. Actually, the dragon this time is computer generated, so it's still a mix of live action and animation.
