  1. I think I start to like Sonic and Samantha more for each post. I think you may need to take them to the real party once so that do not think too much of you ๐Ÿ™‚

    Sonic and Samantha obviously worry about you and any female company would have to meet with their approval!
    Have a great week x TTS:D

      • I take it they weren’t successful in finding you love : ( I’m not sure I can say for Samantha, but it appears that Sonic does not have a well-developed work ethic for a complex task like finding you a woman. Pls don’t read this out loud to them, but dogs are probably more helpful with meeting new people. People are much more willing to talk to you (or your dog) when you are out walking. Clearly in every other way cats are superior.
        V rudely I forgot to thank you for your assistance with adding captions! Sorry x
        Don’t give up on romance x but they do say you only find it when you are not looking.

        No I am never successful in love, even when my cats help me. Oh well, as you say, it will find me when I am not looking. *now wearing blindfold* Yes, dog walking is a good way of meeting people. Shucks, no dog !

      • You are welcome, Ralph. ๐Ÿ™‚ It seems like dream recall varies from person to person. Maybe it also depends on how much you are able to sleep. ๐Ÿ™‚

        When I do remember my dreams, I sometimes remember them vividly and in great detail, while other times I will vaguely remember only part of the dream.

        I hope you have a great Sunday too. ๐Ÿ™‚
