Shuffling Off

What a pleasure to watch! That is a lucky octopus. She is very pretty too I think.

In my lifetime I have seen so much more respect and kindness for captive animals. I am old enough to remember the bad old days, when creatures were in cages with bars. Nobody thought so much about the fulfillment they might get out of life. Much better now.

Maybe you over-the-pond people have already seen this? If not it is a happy little vid.

I know I have been very much absent lately. We are going to take son up to Buffalo on Thursday, and drop him off. He and I are very close, I will miss him terribly. He did part of college during high school-- and lived at home. This is the other part. He was slow to leave, and we did not push him. No point in it until you are ready. Now is the time-- and I hope he loves it.

But it is bittersweet and strange.

Buffalo is an 8 hour drive North and West for us. 8 hours and we will still be in New York. New York is huge! Going South we could get to Virginia in 8 hours.

Daughter will stay home with Sabir. We should only be gone overnight. I think she is excited to be given the task.

I will let you all know how it goes. Maybe we will see a moose!
