In Honor of the Most Human Cat….

Here at MR Central Headquarters it is 2012…..  It is just barely 2012 by a minute or so – Oklahoma (CST) Time…..  I noticed the Blog’s log clock shows it’s an hour or so into the New Year – I guess it’s set to Eastern Standard Time – In any case, all of you West […]
