6. A Favorite Thing
So she's not a "thing," but we got this little lady a year ago! She is named for Alice's cat (as in Alice's Adventures in Wonderland) and for Guy Fawkes Day (we were originally supposed to pick her up then, and I'm a big T.S. Eliot fan [see "The Hollow Men"]).
Remember, remember, the SIXTH of November...
Happy Homecoming, Dinah Fawkes Pharr!
