A Tribute to Hannah

Poor Hannah- For years she's been the steadfast stalwart in the household. If I had to choose an analogy it would be Hannah as the lowly stagehand who has worked the theater she loves while watching a steady stream of flashy new starlets get all the attention (except most stagehands aren't introduced with the warning, "Careful- she's a biter").

But Hannah's about 14 now and we've rediscovered each other. And, for the first time in the 10 years she's been with us, we let her sleep on our pillows.

Wow, 10 years to work your way up to the master bedroom. That's one tough apprenticeship.

As for the theater analogy, I doubt if even Hanna thought of many of the pets of yesteryear as "young starlets".
