The View From The Catbox...

Every now and then, I like to break loose from writing stories and just say what's on my so-called mind. Starting now, I'm making this exercise in terror a regular part of the Alley. Click here for the first one.

And now, an end of an urgent plea from Furrball...

I've been a Bob and Ray fan for years, and have been looking for another copy of this, their first album. Well, found it finally. So, please stop looking for it now. Thanks. End of urgent plea.

Prowling The Alleyways...

(Where Furrball likes to go when he isn't here.)

Hi. In an effort to make The Alley easier to wade through (like THAT'LL ever happen!), I've been redesigning the whole page. Consider this area "the box" (you know, as in the cardboard box underneath the drainpipe). Now, just click on to the following links to get to the various areas of The Alley...

Enjoy your trip through The Alley, and if you know of an interesting spot, write me and I'll see if I can squeeze it in.
