In case anyone was wondering, yes, Monkey is no longer a cat. He has turned into a sea otter :otter:

He is also getting in his winter coat, so he looks HUGE! But then again, he is huge. Here he is standing on Beast Jr’s shoulders. She’s almost 9.

Mr SBC agreed with me when I said last night that his entire self was only as big as his head is now when we got him at 2 weeks old. I love my otter boy :smiling_face_with_three_hearts:

He’s gigantic! But so beautiful!

And, I just realized that I posted my last projects with the old team names… I’ll have to go back and see which team I chose for this season!

Since you’d already posted before, I didn’t even pay attention to what team you put in. I just defaulted to what I’d already put you under :joy:

ATTENTION!

Hi! Not sure if you remember seeing this, but if you haven’t sent me your address yet, please do so! Also, please send it to me and not QueenHobo as she doesn’t log in very often and forgets to pass messages along to me. @gozer, I know you did send yours to her, but I have your address already.

Anyway, if you’d like a small something, please send me your address. I plan on working on the surprise this weekend. :blush:

Busted! I did see that, and thought periodically throughout the term, “oh, I still need to do that.” :woman_facepalming:

Sending it now.

Sorry for the delay, the new Decemebr prompts are up - and while I appreciate the anti-spam spirit, the fact that I can’t C&P this same post to both the main thread and the discussion thread is… argh!

Hello Everyone!

I just wanted to let you know that I have created the Winter 2021 Games thread and Discussion thread. I will include links to each when I post my end of year tracking update, and at that point you can start posting in those threads.

@bluebird, @gozer, @craftADDchick, @roler, @Smeddley, @megwell, @Lynx2Lancer, and @Bunny1kenobi - I’ve mailed out something to you at the address you provided earlier this season. I’m not sure when it will arrive since I’m sure the USPS is swamped right now, but I’m sure it will be there soon.

Thanks so much!

I’m feeling a tad overwhelmed with so much right now, that it will be a wonderful surprise for vacation.

Oh man, I totally fell apart this season! I will be able to craft a few things over the next few days, and will have to get creative to make them fit the prompts. But, my ambitions far outstripped my time and energy this time.
