Also, last night's Life in Cold Blood, mmm? Those Mexican Beaded Lizards are gorgeous, aren't they?

But wait until they start to bite... bwahahahahaha!"
Oh, and I nearly forgot to post this week's strip, which is of the purely autobiographical sort. I build a fence, I think gloomy thoughts, a robin lands on it. That sort of thing.
