Heart attack got her before the liver cancer.Hardy: I'm going to California for a month--settling Mom's affairs. You couldn't--run the cash register, could you? Lorelei: Me? All those keys and numbers---it's so confusin'-- Hardy: Right. Nevermind.

But---the animals-- Hardy: You'll still come feed, delouse, and groom the pets, of course.Mindmistress: Good timing. But in case something happens, and I have to be away overnight---a seeming 'ornament'--which can care for the pets. Magilla Mechmonkey: Mistress? Orders, please...
