Home maintenance, the King of Thieves and a hungry kitty

Sometimes living on a lake presents some unique home maintenance tasks. For example, this:

We have been unable to put our boat in the water because so much sand has built up under the lift that it can't be lowered. Hence the need for heavy equipment, which did provide some entertainment for Thomas and his neighbor buddy. Things are now almost ready for boating.

The three littles have developed a taste for the 1990's shows Xena: Warrior Princess and Hercules: The Legendary Journeys. One of our favorite characters is Autolycus, as played by legendary B-film actor Bruce Campbell. Autolycus is also known as The King of Thieves. Last night Candace and Sarah took a bubble bath, and Candace fashioned herself some King of Thieves facial hair out of bubbles.

Candace as Autolycus

Bruce Campbell as Autolycus

I think we can agree that the resemblance is pretty astounding.

Finally, in other news, Miss Kittywhiskens was apparently pretty hungry. We found this bag of kitten food in our pantry, one of her favorite hangouts.
