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

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!
