    Strange that it’s been over 30 years since the 1970s.

    1979 seems just like yesterday when I was 12 years old and going to Studio 54, hanging out with Gary Coleman, Todd Bridges, Dana Plato, Willie Aames, and Ralph Macchio! I’ll never forget the time Gary Coleman and I were doing Pixy Stix in the VIP room at 54!

    My gigantic ball of fluff is a Maine Coon mix with a Himalayan/ragdoll mom who weighs almost 25 pounds and is a dead ringer for the big gray cat on the left prancing through the snow! You can see him at my blogsite which has “Dumpling” as its much commented icon-animal.

    You definitely need to have more dogs.
