Brimley didn't mind the mis-matched ear. He didn't mind that there is only one Aristotle, and he doesn't have a matching set. (Aristotle I disappeared weeks ago and we never did find him). He also doesn't mind that there are no ornaments on our tree, or that we don't sweep the floor often. He is happy with a mouse toy and a patch of sun. And I admire that.
