Thomas and Harry

    Meet Thomas, (L) and Harry (R), the newest members of the Adair clan. They're handsome fellows who are too young to be sure are fellows for sure... But I'm hoping their names can stick. (Who won't die because they're from a bad batch of bettas. I talked to the fish guy at the store and he confided that they've been getting some sick ones.) Pets are nice for me to have- they're a mental/emotional health thing for me, I've realized, and something I've always had around growing up. So when our house is too quiet when Tim is at work I feel really weird and lonely. It helps to have some movement and noise and companions. And I've accepted that I'm giving them geeky names because they're book names. Not everyone will "get it," but a few can appreciate it. (The few that have really good taste in books.)
