In Memoriam...

Our feisty hamster, Itty, passed away during the night.  The kids are sad, and Daddy and I are surprised.  Itty was running a lot in his wheel yesterday with no signs of distress.  I guess that's just the short, unpredictable life of a hamster.  The kids would like to give Itty a Greek farewell by building a funeral pyre, lighting it, and setting Itty adrift on Highland Lake.  We'll see if we get around to doing all of that.  All I can say is that I'm glad they retained some of the story of the Iliad!

Itty is the one on the right.  Bitty, his brother, is still with us.
