Happiness

Maybe because it is cold and rainy outside today…

Maybe because I’ve got a walloping case of the Monday blues…

Maybe because The Heinous Cat has been missing for five days now and Captain Cavedweller and I are more than a little concerned about his return…

I need some happy.

So here are some quotes that lifted my spirits a bit.  I hope they lift yours as well.
