Lizard King

    That just might be a reference to Mr. Hendrix, I also may or may not have a father who lived through WoodStock... or I could just be referring to my four legged daughter. I've had a few of these pictures sitting in my phone gallery for nearly a year. It's time I share them.

This was the day I brought the baby home.  My roommate has small child like size 5 feet. Little Liz fit in her rainboot with room to spare. I wish I had more puppy pictures, sad face.

We've gone through several exploratory phases, pulling the toilet paper as far as we can ranks right up there with jumping into the bath tub, water or no water. My lizard is a spunky one, that's for sure.

This last one is more recent.

We may be little but that doesn't stop us from enjoying toys of all sizes. Yes, Elizabeth somehow is able to sink her teeth into full size tennis balls. She looks like a stuffed pig when she carries it around. (mental image: pig with apple in mouth on table at royal feast)

I have been studying the traits and dispositions of the "lower animals" (so called) and contrasting them with the traits and dispositions of man.  I find the result humiliating to me.
