Spanky, Guitar, and Spot - UPDATE March 29, 2021

On this day in the 50’s Fahrenheit, the snow crust melted, the snow softened, and Spanky resumed his walks. He left at 5:57 PM and is still gone now at 9:01 PM over 3 hours later. (edit: Spanky returned at 10:09, just over 4 hours later)

Last night, Guitar and Spot were together, wrestling quietly at times. Then they departed to Guitar’s quarters on the third floor in the roof. Today, Guitar emerged alone from a secure spot on the second floor and announced his presence by showing off his guitar-shaped patch. Now at 9 PM, he stopped by alone again.

Thank you for all you do.
