"Who are you," said the caterpillar.
This was not an encouraging opening for a conversation. Alice replied, rather shyly, "I—I hardly know, Sir, just at present—at least I know who I was when I got up this morning, but I think I must have changed several times since then."

I went with my sister Cathy to the St. Louis Library today to help wrangle my niece while she did some work for a class she is taking. I was taking some pictures in front of the building as we left and a couple of guys asked what I was doing, so I told them about my project. One of them asked to take his picture, so I did. Then Cathy treated me to lunch at Crown Candy Kitchen for helping her. Mmmmm - BLT’s with TONS of bacon and a Hot Fudge malt – the perfect lunch! On the way home, I received a phone call from the school saying that MonkeyBoy wasn’t feeling well, so we stopped by school and brought him home. He’s feeling a little better now, but is really tired.
StellaDella found this caterpillar after school and carried it cupped in her hands as she and DramaQueen walked home. She really wanted to keep it as a pet and was disappointed when I wouldn’t let her.
