me again

&#8220;The setting really was perfect for a brisk bubbling murder&#8230; I knew that all I had to do was to drop back, take a deep breath, then grab her by the ankle and rapidly dive with my captive corpse. I say corpse because surprise, panic and inexperience would cause her to inhale at once a lethal gallon of lake, while I would be able to hold on for at least a fully minute, open-eyed under water. The fatal gesture passed like the trail of a falling star across the blackness of the contemplated crime. It was like some dreadful silent ballet, the male dancer holding the ballerina by her foot and streaking down through watery twilight. I might come up for a mouthful of air while still holding her down, and then would dive again as many times as would be necessary, and only when the curtain came down on her for good, would I permit myself to yell for help. &#8230;Poor Mrs Humbert Humbert, the victim of cramp or coronary occlusion, or both, would be standing on her head in the inky ooze, some thirty feet below the smiling surface of Hourglass Lake.&#8221;

My wife took some awesome shots of our hairy babies yesterday!

Our cat Izzy has been ill for the last couple weeks, requiring expensive dental surgery to get her back to normal and pain free. This is after Doug (big nose wiener) injured his spine last fall which was another big expense. BUT it’s worth it for all the love and joy these guys give us <3
