At a time like this

Horrified by what Katrina did to New Orleans, and what the Homeland Security and other authorities obviously failed to do for New Orleans -- there seems to be nothing more to say-- just pity the victims and hope that some lessons were learnt: transport and information up to the last minute for those who want to evacuate before the hurricane strikes, upkeep of the levees to a higher standard...

It is the people we think about, but I did see an egret on CNN today-- obviously distressed in the toxic sludge. Reminded me of the beautiful bayou (can't bring myself to worry about the alligators-- but I hope Alligator Annie's son is ok in Houma.)

Meanwhile back in Norway:



The duck is a muddy bedraggled "kvinand", I think.

Believe me, Aish, the gators are doing just fine, thank you very much. Afterall, they have a whole new playground to explore, at least temporarily.

Is that an X-wing butterfly I spy? :)

Helm.

I think I'm still in a state of disbelief that this actually happened and is happening.

Well, still shocked, and thinking you were there last year. Even sorrier I could not be there with you.

Can see the painting inspiration continues. Very well, Shister.
