February 23, 2008: Dear friends, I have the most sorrowful duty to inform you that Lucius has died. All hope is not lost, however, for if Lucius is able to successfully complete his most perilous adventure, we may still see him again. We have also posted the final "ask Lucius" question until his return. I'm sorry for my brevity, I just don't know what else to say.

December 30, 2007: My fellow Lucinians, this month we have added not one, but two pictorial extravaganzas: one from the Greek Isles and one from Egypt! As always, please find them on the on the Travels and Tales page. Next, two more questions have been asked and answered on the Ask Lucius page. Due to my concern, I will also mention that upon his return from Egypt several months ago, Lucius was quite agitated and began meditating. He has not yet stopped. I do not know what his behavior signifies, but I will keep you informed.

June 29, 2007: Greetings friends! Please enjoy Lucius' photos from his vacation in Australia on the Travels and Tales page. Rest assured, he enjoyed taking them. We have also added another picture of our youngest scamp, Sprite, on the Iggy and Mox page. Finally, also on the Travels and Tales page, we have added our photographs from The Third Annual Sock Monkey Madness Festival in Rockford, Illinois!

January 11, 2007: To celebrate the New Year, we have added pictures from Lucius' excursion to Hawaii on the Travels and Tales page and have answered, what is to date, my favorite Ask Lucius question! We have also added some very exciting items on the Iggy and Mox page: some new photographs of Iggy, Mox, Ollie and Sprite AND a link to their new feature film "Space Pirate Blacksock and the Mystery of the Ancients!"

First and most importantly, the History page has been updated to include our two newest members of the Withywindle Family, Sprite and his monkey warder Ollie! Next, we have added some new links and a new question which Lucius has graciously answered. Third, a pic or two has been added to Iggy and Mox's page. We are also very excited because we have recently discovered that most of Esther Averill's "Jenny and the Cat Club" books are back in print! We have added these books to the Literature page. Finally, we have posted on the Travels and Tales page the long awaited photos of Lucius' recent trip to South America. Please enjoy!

August 16, 2005: True, an update is long over due.
