Birthday party/Housefilk April 9

My annual birthday party/ housefilk will be held here at Stately Ehrlich Manor on Sunday April 9th, from 2 pm to 7pm.

There will be food and beverages available, but feel free to bring stuff if you like.

Young master Sam will be here to greet his adoring public .

Standard disclaimer about our cats: There are two living here, but they will most likely be hiding under the bed. (Certainly Luna will be in hiding. Nova may hide, or not, depending on her mood.)
