Yes, I know yesterday’s post was a bit dark. For the record, no I’m not particularly depressed. No need to alert Facebook’s algorithms.
And, speaking of records, the Mariners did set that record–15 games at the beginning of the season with at least one home run–they did win yesterday in a very thrilling come-from-behind fashion, and they now return home bearing the best record in baseball and a four game division lead over the Astros. Who are, coincidentally, the team they’ll be playing for the next three days and who, historically speaking, the Mariners have always had trouble beating. As I said before, it can’t last. But it’s a great ride while it does.
Anyway, how about something cheerful as an antidote to yesterday’s doom and gloom?
Hang on, let me enhance that a little. Or at least brighten it up a bit.
Why, look! It’s Lefty, out of the room he shares with Rufus!
Yes, we’ve begun giving him opportunities to explore the upstairs hall. He’s been very cautious about it, not spending much time off his familiar turf, and certainly not letting us close (hence the low resolution of the pictures–they were cropped out of shots taken from halfway across the house).
But he’s taking steps in the right direction. Not only is he broadening his horizons, but he’s also had a couple of opportunities to exchange less-than-flattering personal observations with ‘Nuki.
Now that is a rite of passage!
Finally, lest you think I’ve merely exchanged dark words for dark pictures, here’s something bright and cheerful.
It’s not often we see these three hanging out together. Enjoy.
