When our granddaughter was a toddler, we had a cat named Inky. Upon arriving for a visit one day, she excitedly asked, “Where’s the cat?” We told her Inky was in the basement. Thinking about how things were done at her home in New Hampshire, and much to our amusement, she then asked, “Doing laundry?”
