Yup. Have you seen some of the photos of that work? Gruesome job. There's a Jacques Cousteau book about Whales that includes several such shots.

Another recent Mudcat discussion (started by our own Rapaire, who thinks he's Mom's favorite, but well, when he's gone so often I don't know how he can justify that illusion) had to do with trains and got into getting train stuff at eBay. I spent a little time at eBay myself this evening, hoping to snag a wonderful little NW Coast basket, but the reserve price was beyond where I was willing to reach. Probably way higher than my fairly substantial bid. It's probably not a good idea to put myself deeper in debt just in time for the New Year anyway.

Amos, it's your watch with Mom now since you're out west and it's early yet where you are. I'm headed for a hot bath, mostly to keep company with the poor kitty who is confined to the back bathroom while her most recent wound drains (inflicted by the vet who drained and packed an abscess on her chest). I'll soak and said cat will perch on the edge of the tub, and after I wash my hair she'll purr and rub and offer to groom it into place for me. (Well, it makes her happy, and that's what counts when she isn't feeling so good).
