The return of Coco...

Turtle and Mu's class hamster has been MIA for over a week. Renowned as "escape artists" hamsters immediately took a tumble on Turtle's small-furry-pet-desirability scale (SFPD). Where had Coco gone? Had she'd taken up with the "wild" squirrels, was she hiding in the walls, or had she simply packed her bags and left. And as each day passed hope of a safe and happy return faded. But miracle upon miracles this morning Coco had returned to the cosy environs of her cage. Woohoo! There was much celebrating and excitement! As a result of Coco's safe return, it is hoped that hamsters-as-pets recover on Turtle's SFPD scale bringing an end to his current desire for a "too close to a rat in appearance for Mummy" gerbil.
In other news - though not nearly as exciting as "the return of Coco" - R and I had a great trip to Palm Springs. Did you know they have 120 golf courses there? Who knew?! TED 2010 was brilliant in so many ways. I've posted my highlights here. Then R left yesterday for four weeks in NZ, so once again we are three. And since Portland is bathed in early spring sunshine I'm off to catch some of it before it disappears.
