Announcing the arrival of Baby Hamster!

I said goodbye to Lucy this afternoon. It was time. She went peacefully.   She was a good girl.

The lovely piece I commissioned from @kristof65's wife arrived safely!            EDIT: This picture doesn't show it, but some of the glass pieces are iridescent.

Ah, the joys of "mouse season"....nothing quite like having determined scratching abruptly start from underneath one whilest relaxing in the tub. Given the turns my mind normally takes, I had a "fun" moment or two as I desperately prepared myself for mortal combat with something coming up out of the floor....

Pretty sure it was a mouse though, this house isn't quite old enough to have a hidden temple to the Magna Mater hidden beneath the crawlspace, and I'm rather certain that the romans never made it into the area....

Still, I now have the reoccuring thought that perhaps I ought to see if the name "de la Pour" shows up in the genelogical woodpile...and maybe "borrow" the cat that occasionally wanders around the bird feeder, just in case Lovecraft's "Rats in the Walls" was actually a prophesy of some kind...

 

 

Have you heard of the disappearance of Legio IX?

Just saying...::P:

 

Legio IX Hispana ("9th Legion – Spanish"),[1] also written Legio nona Hispana or Legio VIIII Hispana,[2] was a legion of the Imperial Roman army that existed from the 1st century BC until at least AD 120. The legion fought in various provinces of the late Roman Republic and early Roman Empire. It was stationed in Britain following the Roman invasion in 43 AD. The legion disappears from surviving Roman records after c. AD 120 and there is no extant account of what happened to it.[3]

Rumours have it that it is currently located under Lord of the Dish Pit's bathtub..

While true, by the time it was effective, I feel like the effort would be wasted.

3 months of daily trying, 2-3 weeks with hormone assistance.  Trust me, by our second child I had heard ALL the possibilities!

Stew is yummy. As is the Guinness that went with it!

Excellent news!

Anybody in the Roughly Seattle Area need an IT guy who specialises in infrastructure? I have one who /really/ needs out from under some ... really toxic ignorance. >.<

If the other side of the continent and border is close enough to the RSA, I could probably point you at something.....

Covid results came back negative. Still have to do all the monitoring and etc, but one less thing to have to worry about. Hopefully now I can get my ear looked at... granted, now there's a person in the house from an outside environment, staying for who knows how long, and not wearing a mask around my folks (despite my insistence, because I presume mom told her she didn't have to, and probably a bit of hubris on the visitor's part)...

 

@Crowley not necessarily parenting advice, but more of an observation: emotion for your child seems to dictate actions over logic/rational thought.

 

Still one small victory with a negative test. I'll take it.

I forgot to post these pics yesterday, they're from the ongoing Scottish Wildcat breeding program that's going on in these parts. These two cuties were born earlier this year at a small zoo near here, aren't they the cutest? They're called Arran and Jura :wub:

Shh! We don't need W.O.O.F. needing to know about M.E.O.W.'s efforts in creating new agents so close to their HQ.

Nah, the Worms of the Earth summoned by Bran Mak Morn's descendant took out the ninth legion.

The Welsh following Prince Madoc, might be different, although I've not heard anything about them heading further West than the Appalachians.

Now where have I seen the expression that Alfie has in that last panel?

 

Truly, a mystery. :lol:

 

(Brown eyes instead of blue, curlier and frizzier hair... yeah, I know where I have seen that face before. :wub:  And Brigid is starting to look just like her.)

 

*EDIT* A clean page from a dirty comic. Seek out Alfie at your peril - fun, a good plot, but porn. Only two chapters to go.

 

The Auld Grump

I recently had a discussion with a friend about "adult entertainment that you consume for the plot." This was my example. I'm way behind on it. When Alfie hooked up with that lady from the red forest, I wasn't sure if I wanted to keep going because I can see the heartbreak coming a mile away... ::(:

Oh yes, there's no rational thought here, just emotional "I need/want"

 

COFFEE!

My adventures in soup making continued today with Pear and Parsnip Soup, turned out much yummier than it thought it would (I was suspicious of adding pears).

 

It wasn't all plain sailing though, I somehow managed to peel one of my knuckles.
