A tender moment

Awwww. Sweet, huh? And that is the coolest butterfly. It was so transparent I thought it was actually just a frame, then the light caught the scales and it shimmered. Prismatically.

Full Disclosure: The butterfly is, technically, "dead" in this picture, and the words "look at the butterfly" may have been repeated a time or two in the name of bringing you this tender moment. I'm pretty sure it didn't actually come to "look at the damn butterfly," but...)

This is not the result of excessive demands to look at the butterfly. Actually, it must have just been a fleeting expression because she was pretty happy at the time. I simply include it because I wanted to ask Lisa: Doesn't she look like those sad-eyed puppy pictures Mom got at the grocery store (or something like that) when we were little?

Oh yes, the sad, sad puppy pictures. I used to lie in bed looking up at the one in chains. With a crust of bread. (Was there a crust of bread?) And the sad, sad eyes. I used to look up at it and feel so sad. I miss those pictures.

Lisa, they were called Pound Puppies. Could be they started you on your empathy for creatures of all kinds.
