For those of you who have been following family news, you might know by now that Matt and Erin had a fire in their home on Monday. They and all their animals got out safely, thanks to Matt's quick thinking and are now staying here with Ray and me. They will spend the rest of this week salvaging what they can and dealing with the aftermath -- insurance agents, cleaners, and more. They will not be moving back to that home! We are all so thankful that they are safe, and that the wonderful Kenmore firefighters were so conscientious and careful to safeguard many of their things. Ray is definitely enjoying his new "pack!" Welcome Bentley, Daisy and Max!
