[personal] Meanwhile, back at el Rancho

Well, after last week's mishaps, the cats have gone to a new, loving home. deedop and Chef Chopper have taken them in at Casa Deedop. They were cat-less after the passing of Audrey a while back, and it seems a good fit. They're also home consistently, which is not true of me, and which was definitely upsetting my little citizens. Thank you everyone for the suggestions — in fact, I did have the_child visiting them everyday in my absence, it just wasn't enough for what they needed. Casa deedop is only about 5 minutes' drive from Rancho Lake, and very close to lillypond's new joint, so I'll see them and they'll see me.

In other news, Mother of the Child gifted me with the framing of an old oil painting tillyjane had done of me and my granddaddy Lake when I was about three years old. It shows a shambling old man, from the back, holding hands with a blonde child in Dennis the Menace red, tugging to be away in the manner of rambunctious children everywhere. It's very sweet, and from a part of my life of which I have very little recollection.
