Alki's cancer treatment

After a week of cancer treatments Alki is still patiently putting up with it all. She is so good natured! She's a bit tired, and doesn't want to go, but every morning she trots off with the nurse just because we ask her to. What a good dog!

Alki - from her level

Who's the boss of this house? You know the answer - it's Alki!

More Hedgies!

Hmm, here's the real reason we go through so many Hedgehogs. Alki plays nicely with hers, Chester chews off their nose, feets, and unstuffs them!

This is only the latest in a long line of hedgehogs Alki has tortured and unstuffed in the last 12 years! Hedgehog has always been one of her favorite toys. She takes him to bed with her, takes him outside with her, and fetches him back when we ask her to go find the hedgehog.

Here you go, Declan!

I would be ashamed to tell you how much junk was piled around, against, and on top of the car! But now it's all cleaned off and ready to start working on. I have a little more organizing to do in the garage first. I need to make room for all the bits I'm about to start taking off. Then I should be ready to go.

Lazy lazy!

I'm going to have to call this the weekly photo if I don't get my act together soon!

Here's my new Dwarf Jewel Cichlids and their new family!

Closeup of the 'kids'

I love finding new baby fish! The parents do all the work and I get to enjoy watching them!

Still the greatest country in the world

It might not be perfect, but we still have the freedom to try and make it that way, and that's why it is still the greatest country in the world. So instead of saying 'if you don't like it, leave', I would say 'if you don't like it, speak up and work to make it better'. That's America.

The fishroom

I've built new racks, added some new pairs of fish to breed, and cleaned up a bit. My easy chair is nearby for peaceful sitting and contemplating.
