Guido Thinking Out Of The Box

Hey, thanks for the messages.  Our small crisis was that my PC had a corrupted drive - and as I work from home, this is potentially disastrous.  I managed to rescue and restore it.

Roll your mouse over Guido to see what he's thinking
The sad news that came after was that my father-in-law, Louis O'Daniel, died.  He was a very nice man and I'm sorry to say we didn't get to know each other very well because we live on different continents.

After that sad news, our fridge died and then the iron and last night my computer screen.

It's not all doom and gloom because we've also received some awards.  We'll post about that on Monday - and hopefully all the other news will be positive then too.

In the meantime, here's a picture of Guido thinking out of the box.  This picture is also the subject of Katz Tales, out tomorrow in The Star, print version only.  If you're in Malaysia, or you buy the e-edition, enjoy!

Guido, you look cute on the box and no, your butt is not too big for it.
