So far 2018 hasn't been very eventful since both Judy and I have been lying low due to the flu. I got it first around January 6th and Judy was fine until she caught it a few days later. We've both have cabin fever and hopefully we'll feel good enough for an adventure next week. We did get in a little shopping and a nice lunch yesterday in Claremont so we're on the mend.
We've had Lupo for a little over two months now and he is very, very slowly starting to relax. He'll probably never get rid of his skittishness, but at least he doesn't get quite so startled by our moving around the house. However, he's still a pleasure to look at.
