An Update and a Critter

It seems like it has been such a long time since I posted anything, but it's only been a week and a half. The past ten days have been filled with many ups and downs, plenty of uncertainty and more than a few tears.  Our Dear Uncle continues to struggle, and it is very painful to watch.  We all feel very helpless in times like this. There is little to do, other than just be there for him and send him all of our love.

On a completely different note, I have had a photo that I have been wanting to capture and share for some time.  It is of our little crested gecko, Chocolate.  She has the most incredible eyes.  They are a deep gold with all sorts of interesting detail.  She is such a sweet little fun pet to have and the easiest thing to care for.

I'm sharing this photo on Eileen's blog for her wonderful 'Saturday's Critters'.

  5. Chocolate DOES have an interesting eye.

    I often marvel at Giroux's eyes. From the side his eyes look so liquid-y! Cat's have a huge vitreous eyeball.
