I asked on Twitter if people wanted to read a new blog post, but that it… Continue reading Love in the time of Quarantine

Day after tomorrow is the big day! Hazel the Hip gets her official eviction and I get a brand new hip joint and socket. Queue the ticker tape parade, ribbons, dancers and marching band.
