IN WHAT IS FAST becoming a tradition all its ownself, I have once again let slide the preparation of a post wishing Dolly a Happy Birthday. By the ficton, she is 15 today, but in reality 14. And her official papers — finest kind real thing, boss — say she’s 42. You can believe that or not if you want to.
But, also born this date in the Casa d’Alger household are Chester and his sister Lady Jane Grey, whose namesake, we may recall, died in history just the other day. The cats are a year old. The human Lady Jane, somewhat older.
