Wow, guess I've been too tired to be inspired to post anything these days.

Anywhoo, as an update, my poor little Scandal the Cat spent the weekend in the hospital . . . again. Seems that this time it was an urinary tract infection (or so the vets believe). On top of that, the poor kitten did not want to eat at all, even though the staff at the animal hospital tried really hard, and provided him with a menu of his favorite foods.

Nothing.

(On the other hands, they did nickname him "Mr. Cranky" which means that he was his feisty little self in spite of everything. That made us feel much better about his prognosis.)

This morning, ballistabob picked him up from the hospital and took him home. Immediately, Scandalicious ran to the kitchen and attacked his food bowl with gusto.

Seems that not only my little cat is cranky, but passive agressive as well. Bless his freaky little heart.

At any rate, I am back at work and dealing with yet another report from Hell. It sure will keep me busy for the time being.

And now, for your entertainement, here is the link to my pictures from Quito.

And here is one of my favorite ones from that album, which was taken at the Palacio de Gobierno. It is a beautiful mosaic, and it reads "The Sacrifice of 3000 Aborigins Glorifies the Presence of Ecuador in the Amazon River." Truly a harrowing message. One that cannot be forgotten any time soon.

When AElfgifu was a little kitten, we had to go away for a few days, so Magnus and Madeline took care of her while we were gone. She refused to eat the kitten food we bought. Madeline works part-time for our vet, and brought a tube of meat paste or something similar. AElf' started eating again. Perhaps it isn't so much a "favorite food" as finding the right thing to stimulate the cat to eat.

At least your kitty only got designated "Mr. Cranky". Our dearly departed Minerva got designated as "FRACTIOUS" in large bold letters on her file after she managed to claw ealdthryth, the vet, and two assistants in one go. "Furry Cuisinart" might have done just as well....

Well, we already KNOW that Scandal answers to that description!

That is a beautiful mosaic. (And yes, harrowing indeed.) Would you consider submitting it to the Mosaic Atlas? It's an online photo album of mosaics all over the world. I just looked and they don't have a single one from Ecuador. It's a really nifty site and Bill Buckingham, who runs it, is a really cool guy. :-)

Sure! I'll be happy to. I only regret that I didn't take more pictures, but my camera was running low on batteries and behaving erratically. There is a second one in the album, which shows the three sides. However, it is from more far away and you can't see all the detail. :-)
