First, thank you to everyone who posted comments about our late family friend. The funeral was a dignified tribute and send off. The family was very appreciative of the support.
Today's photos include a newer member of the, um, family. Jim works for a community newspaper, and as part of a press release, was given a hissing Madacascar cockroach. This bug is HUGE, more than 3 inches long. In the second photo, I drew an arrow pointing to him (her?).
The cats are fascinated with this creature. Here's Tucker watching with interest.
