It's Late for Fred to Be Up

Fred isn't usually up this late, but Mama Lizo had a big meeting tonight for work and he really wanted to say hey to her before she (and he) went to sleep. I love the way Mama Lizo spends time with me each evening, stroking my silky ears and calling me her Handsome Boy while we watch reruns of General Hospital or she reads to me.

Mama Carol thinks this is weird.
