Naala does not like to let my husband out of her sight;

Outside of some batting, I can't believe it all fit back into the containers it came down in! Um...thoughts: is there something wrong with this picture: a couple of projects from last winter that didn't get done then, not even during the summer, made their second trip down with me this winter....and yep, are going back north, still no further ahead than over a year ago?

The guy who was fishing said they have learned, from humans feeding them, not to fear us, and they do swipe fish right off the line, with the hook and line still attached. I hope his gut will digest it and not leave him to die a painful lingering death. Clearly the fish was already in his belly.

I read 15 books since December 1 and I am into #16! It is another Bryson, A Short History of Nearly Everything.

Bella decided to pack herself into a rather fitting bag. She has expensive tastes, what can I say.
|The bag measures 8X10". I mean she's a small cat, but really...|
