Another temperate evening. I made corn chowder and tossed the leftover cobs to the girls, which they love. Then Lulu came out and ate the cobs like bones. Which is better than rocks, which she also favors. Butters continues to be pretty skittish of the other girls, especially Ester (Thelma), but when it's time to go to bed, things unfold with a little more nuance. There are peaceful moments, like above.Then some kerfuffle.Ending up with a variation on this. Which I guess is progress.
