    Dear Miss Charly,

    Miss Poppy Seed here. By way of introduction, I used to talk to your spirit brother The Red Man all the time. You are not alone in this news glut misery. It’s all Cassie Potatoes and I hear; day in and out. On top of it all, Ma raves like loon to herself about a certain Uncle Rumpus whom we’ve never met and guess wouldn’t be forthcoming with Liver Snaps. Anyway, I hope she’s not complaining about the state of American politics to us. All we care about are naps, walks, and bully sticks (and there’s never enough of those!!). We are hoping Slow reports on the missing Baby Jesus or anything other than Uncle Rumpus to snap Ma out of this fixation.

    Yours in treat starved affection,

    Miss Poppy Seed and Cassie Potatoes, who refused to learn technology. Luddite!

  4. I’m with you, Charly. Lately Mommy’s been switching between the Food Network and HGTV, where the biggest controversies are kale or quinoa and stripes or print. Awwww, the simple life.
