The statue, which you can't see all that clearly here, is a man and a lion wrestling. In bronze. Just awesome. And of course, awesome sky to go with it all.

We are now the proud owners of a dog. It was the Mouse's Christmas Present (early), but as is the case with a bunch of hopeless animal lovers like us, Maria is now all of ours.
We've had her since Monday now and it was immediately clear that she was fairly traumatized by bad people and being a stray.
And this morning? She gave me a big wag and the first doggie smile I'd seen since we'd brought her home.
I nearly cried.
I am always amazed at how animals and people too, just bloom when you show them some basic loving kindness.
And I ever find the people who hurt this beautiful little dog and there won't be enough left for anyone to identify them...
Anyway, I've gotta motor or I'd write more. The morning routine is in process of being rewritten. Obvee, I spent a portion of it outside this morning...
