We are pleased as a bear snagging a salmon to bring you an entertaining blogging family we’re sure many of you have not yet met, Da Tabbies O Trout Towne. They’re somewhat (well, not exactly) new to blogging but they’re making quite a name for themselves. They are excellent spellers who speak and spell fo net tic call lee (phonetically). But they speak slowly and clearly, so there’s no need of a Trout to Meow translation.
They are dedicated to avoiding birds, so don’t be surprised to get an inviting whiff of trout on the grill when you stop by their place. They’ll likely invite you to set for a spell and share a bite with them,
Oh, dear, we better get on with the interview. We’ve likely got you drooling now.

FFF Cyndi: Psssst, Dai$y, I noticed during this interview that your siblings don’t think as highly of you as you do of yourself. As Queen, have you considered knighting them? You’d still be Queen and they could be self-important too. Just a thought.
