The Second Night of Hanukkah

Every night we add one more candle and watch from a safe distance of course. Tommy and I both like to watch the candles when we are not busy playing dreidle. Really, we play dreidle...maybe we'll show you tomorrow.

Mom, why are there three candles when it's only the second night?

That's a very good question, Tommy! That's because the taller candle is the Shamash, the helper candle we use to light all the other candles.

Happy Hanukkah!

You play with dreihl..dreild...urm... that thing? Is that the spinny thing?

That spinny thing looks like fun!

We've missed you too! Now we're having incompetence problems with our OTW. She was running Eye-EEE when the bad people infected it, and now our computer's infected. And old. The Big one is going to get her a new one, or build one, maybe.

I wish my OTW could photoshop the bad furcut, but she's nowhere NEAR that talented! I didn't bite anything when they stole my bloods and my pees, but I did say some very rude things to my OTW. And then I made her look stupid to the vet by being completely FINE! Dr Tara said my bloods and pees were perfect!

PS. the OTW says the book is about a black cat called Midnight Louie, who lives in Las Vegas and solves mysteries that happen around his human, the lady with good scritchy nails. There's a whole bunch of the books.

Your menorah is beautiful. I'm glad you're watching the beautiful candles safely!

Hey, we play dreidle too! And stare at the candles. Nice. Blondie says we smack it under the sofa just so she can be humbled.
Exactly.
