Energy Shortage.

I'm not able to take any photos lately. The batteries in the camera died. We once had a crazy surplus of AA batteries, but no longer. Greeley pounces on any battery left out in the open. Or on a shelf in the pantry. Or hidden in the back of a closet. No, I don't know what she does with them. They haven't materialized under a couch or in an unexpected drawer yet. Perhaps she's putting them in the hole in the family room couch?

The point is, I haven't taken any pictures lately. So, we have to go back through some shots previously not considered exciting enough for publication. As a result, I give you:

Atlee washing her hands after using the bathroom.

And why yes, it is a new low around here. Thank you. Thank you very much.

If you're sick of winter, or even if you're not, you should hop over to the Patio Boat and read my big brother's latest poem, In February.

I would just like to say that when you get some more batteries, I want to see a lot more movies. I put a 2gig card in the camera, in case you didn't notice, so you've got PLENTY of space for movies. (Dammit.) :)

Hope you get some batteries soon.

That is so flippng funny, because I did notice it wasn't full after 30 seconds of video and was properly confused. Thank you! :D

Always happy to read your texts, Susan, with or without photos. But, knowing that all you need are some batteries in order to include more videos, well, we'll have to through a few into Atlee's birthday box!

I'm happy to report Rich purchased some at the store this evening. We'll get snapping right away!

Ditto that. More movies! You'll need audition material for that TLC series.
