Jello Ocean and other bits

The ocean—looking a little like turquoise Jello here.
“What would an ocean be without a monster lurking in the dark? It would be like sleep without dreams.”
~Werner Herzog
Perhaps we have Jello Monsters.
Word for the day:Adnate
(botany, mycology) Linked or fused to something unlike itself.
Joined by having grown together.
Adnate mushroom gills are broadly attached to the stalk slightly above the bottom of the gill, with most of the gill fused to the stem.
The adnate union of The Amazing Bob and I began 29 years ago—back before the internet, iPods, Skype, Kindle or Nintendo WII. Yes, Pteranodons graced the sky then. It’s true.
Helen and fam are in town for a couple of days. Her oldest, Crysta, Helen and I took this opportunity to dye streaks of purple in our hair. Yes, aunty, niece and grandniece now all have purple “highlights.” I was expecting vibrantly neon-tastic and it’s not. Could be that there’s not enough contrast between my own hair color (very dark brown to black) and the dark purple dye (gee-duh, ya think?). I’m gonna live with this for a few days before I dive back into the color box. Subtle hints of purple versus blazing, glo brite floss could be cool. Really.
Moments before I snapped this pic, our Coco was attempting to get into this very small box. No box is too tiny for a cat. Of course.

 Also? Happy Friday!
