Oh, and this? This right here is why I hesitate to get rid of that ridiculous and stupid Japanese red maple in my own backyard: someday, maybe, if the conditions are just right and I have been drinking enough, someday I might find that tree pretty enough to take a picture like this. In the meantime, my grandparents' tree will have to do.
And this picture is just here because it's cute. Shae loves this cat, and the day we went to Ikea to get furniture for her bedroom, she demanded we buy it for her.
Hard to argue with that kind of convincing logic, right?
