the difference between a "crowd" and a "mob" is one push

sitting in a hot-tub and looking out at a beautiful, cat-shaped pond, as a bald eagle circles overhead. This was a good day.

NYC? No, this is my retreat house in upstate New York. It is surrounded by woods and there are few houses around.

As for the pond: yes, it is cat-shaped. The outline looks like a kitty sitting up -- you can clearly make out the ears, headpiece, arched back, and underside.

It's all a matter of perspective.

The reality is that he was in a stolen car by a muddy waterhole frequented by stray cats while a police chopper circled overhead. Yep, that's NYC alright.

Damn you, Mark. You will have to wait until some time tommorow or Thursday, as I do not have any pictures of my pond, nor do I have a camera with me.

One day, though, you and your family will have to come visit and play games. We are only a hop, skip, and a jump away from Conneticut's northwestern corner (damned square states).

Holy crap can I go? I haven't been to the US since 1990, and I haven't been in a cat pool in even longer. The last time I was in a cat pool, the damn things kept getting stuck in the filter.

Oh, my girlfriend was kind enough to e-mail me a picture of our pond





Note the ears and headpiece in the lower left, the supine spine trailing from the headpiece toward the upper right, the chest puffed out in the lower center, and the front paw extended for support in the lower right.

Actually what I am most happy about was that the eagle did not drop any, ahem, droppings on my head, close ahem.
