I Think He's My Geico Rep  

This is Leonard.
Lenny, for short.
He joined me on my easy chair about an hour ago,
as I was answering email.
He is either a Thanksgiving visitation akin to Scrooge's Christmas visitations
or he is my Geico rep here to sell me renter's insurance.
All I know is that he matches my shirt almost perfectly
and he is amazingly content to wander
the alien landscape of me, reclining with laptop,
and to be photographed.
He is not skittish of the paparazzi, apparently.
I have discovered other things about Lenny.
1) He's an excellent jumper.  No, really.  Olympic caliber.
2) He's exhausted!  Poor thing took a nap on my knee.
3) He's a good listener.  Only yawned during my interrogation of him once!
4) He was originally attracted to the heat cast-off from my laptop vent and would still be basking there happily
if I didn't insist upon moving around, like a human being, rather than laying perfectly still, like a friendly rock.

I propose a toast!
To Lenny!
Long may he roam!

If we can't get you to finsih Hide Beside Me. Do you think Leonard could take a crack at the story? I know Otalia is over but you are an awesome story teller and I would love to see that wonderful story see it's proper ending. Happy Thanksgiving to you and Leonard.

Can I reiterate an 'Oh hell yes!' to concur with the previous commenter? Pretty please? I know you were up to Ch38 or something with only 46/47 in total. So, not far off.

Hide Beside Me was the best Otalia story ever. I would love to see it completed. It would be the best Christmas Present.
