Answer:  PURRSISTENT

(Where’s Eartha Kitt when you need her???  I have to admit, I was always more of a Julie Newmar man – okay, boy – but Eartha couldn’t be topped at the rolling of her Rs, when making her purr-puns, as Catwoman, in the 1960’s Batman series.  What campy fun that was!  I think the show was what got me into comic books as a boy.  Great memories.

Feeling gratitude and not expressing it is like wrapping a present and not giving it.”   —   William Arthur Ward

(So, show a little gratitude.  Thank someone who’s been good to you.  Through words, or through actions, let them know you appreciate what they’ve done and who they are.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
