Martha Stewart used to have a habit of saying, “it’s a good thing.”
She seems to have stopped that around the time she went to prison, but I think even Her Perfectness would agree: the following is a good thing. It’s better than cupcakes. It’s better than mandolin music. It’s even better than that scene in Bridget Jones’ Diary where Hugh Grant and Colin Firth beat each other up to the tune of “It’s Raining Men.”
It’s that good.
But before I sound any more foolish, let me hand this post off to the High Queen of Good Things herself. No, not Martha Stewart…Tashi and Gabriella‘s adopter:
“I hope all of you have been well!
“Tashi is doing really well! Gabby is too!
“Since it was Halloween, and these two little ones seem to just love being dressed and wrapped up and just about anything at all where attention is involved, we thought they might just like to join the kids and dress up for Halloween!
“Tashi was the super hero Captain America, and Gabby was a ladybug. They both were as happy as could be.
“They started purring as soon as the costumes went on!!
“This certainly was a super special Halloween for all of us!
“Just when we think things cannot possibly get any better, they do!”
And I cannot possibly imagine better timing for this.
Tabby’s Place’s home state of New Jersey needs a hero right now – the kind with tabby stripes, who wears a cape without pants, and has a tabby-and-white ladybug for his sidekick. (We all know she’s the brains of the operation.)
With apologies to FEMA, PSE&G, JCP&L, Governor Christie and President Obama: we’ll cast our lot with Captain Tashi and GabBug the next time a hurricane hits. (Which will be never. Never. How does never work for you?)
