Lokie’s Obsession with Jim

I’ve told you about Pinot’s obsession with bags.  This is the story of Lokie’s obsession with Jim. Lokie is my shadow.  She follows me everywhere I go.  If I can’t find her, I usually just have to turn around, look down and there she is.  She sits by the tub when I take a bath.  She…
