Happy 4th of July to you too, Cherie!

July 4th... ;-)

So I assume the Cat in the Hat writing will take a vacation today ;-))

But yes, your description above of the descriptive adjective makes  
perfect sense, and that was why I felt we needed the movement arrows  
showing that the hat is placed on the head. I am so glad you created  
a video, because it helps the editing process so much!!

Later we can discuss this with the other editors...There are now four  
people who have requested the video for editing: Stuart, Stefan,  
Adam, and Kelly Jo.

I think it will be better for the editing process if I start a  
document in the Literature Puddle called "Cat in the Hat 1 Edited  
Version" and so forth, so that we do not disturb your original  
document. That way, when other editors get involved, they can look at  
both documents to discuss the differences....I will do that later  
today. This means you can just keep writing your original, Cherie,  
while I write my edits in this other file, and when you have time you  
can look back at my editing, and start asking why etc...

So the most important thing now is for you to finish the original  
document as soon as possible, and I won't interrupt your time with  
edits, but will just write them quietly in the separate editing-files.

This is exciting work!

Happy 4th of July!

Val ;-)
