In my neighbourhood.

We saw this chap when we went for a picnic recently. He's a goanna, about the size of a small dog. He made love to female of the species who then lay there dead. We felt we should have done something about it instead of just watching, like stopping the bastard or something. Then after about a half hour, while we were wondering what authorities should be called, she pulled herself together, got up a shuffled off.

With my wife insisting that we throw water on it, poor large freakish tree lizard can't even enjoy a post coital nap.

I was hoping todays blog would have a youtube link of Evans and Whites "dancing", as judged by us who look down on the dance floor from afar.

I'd like to see the cats trying to get THAT lizard!
That little tree hugger looks cool.

Isn't it springtime where you are? And what is springtime supposed to mean BUT a good mating season?

In his dreams, Dud's would love to have my dance moves.

The bigger goanna must have been between two and three feet long, and so I think medium dog is more like it.

Hands up who had a bad head this morning...

When you're so fed up you just decide to pretend you're dead, and he STILL doesn't notice...

I fear to provoke but:

Robert McCrum takes a stab at talking about 'graphic books' as the Observer awards a prize for a short story (in 'comic', no that won't do. 'graphic' no that either, ah ha, illustrated form.) I couldn't bring myself to read the posted comments on the blog, in case the same ground started be turned over again. Pity they don't seem to have posted the award winning story to read as well.

Don't be too hard on Mr McCrum even if his remarks are awry (and some of the more ignorant commenters on that blog knock him a great deal).

When my colleagues at Savoy Books published The Adventures of Meng and Ecker in 1995 McCrum gave the book a very positive review (and was the only lit critic to even mention it) at a time when most of the UK comics world was looking down its noses at Savoy's works. It's McCrum and other sympathetic editors like Sam Leith at the Telegraph who help get comics accepted in book shops.

That's rather wilder than the critters photographed in Mark Evanier's Los Angeles backyard (possums and raccoons).
