But they were obviously in disguise.
“Semper Fidelis” isn’t just the USMC motto, it’s imprinted on the mind of every adopted “pet” (read "companion and friend for life.) We have two adoptees, a feral we did “spay and stay” for, and rescue strays whenever we can.
Thank you, Wiley, for this wonderful statement of a near sacred cause.

This strip is all about anachronism.
Never had a four wheel drive until our current Volvo. Driven through some of the worst storms the country has ever seen. Not stuck or off the road once. Four wheel drive may help, but skill helps more.

This is so delightful—and I missed it yesterday.
Scariest movie? “Fantasia,” original version. Saw it when I was three (?) had nightmares for a month, scared of human skeletons until I was in high school, and they still give me the creeps, sometimes. Scariest written work: “Macbeth.” Read it while baby sitting on a dark and stormy October night. Had no problem staying awake until the parents returned at 3 am, and very glad my house was only three doors down. Never bothered going to bed that night.
Sanity is for those who cannot handle reality. ;^} “Mental illness” is sometimes only a point of view not shared by the majority. I don’t imply that the illness is not real, but that hard as it may be, thinking of it that way is often an easier way for the “sane” to deal with it. Are any of us truly sane? Disturbing as the mentally ill can be, we should see them with compassion.
