I see a pattern forming here, may be I should establish a Fabulist tradition.

”Firmin-Girard enjoyed great popularity at the time the Impressionists were revolting against the highly detailed, academic style that he practiced. However, Firmin-Girard shared the Impressionists’ interest in painting modern life, especially scenes along the River Seine. In this work, Parisians enjoy a Sunday brasserie overlooking the river at Bas-Meudon southwest of Paris. At left, the artist depicted his daughter stroking an appreciative cat as her brother chats with their grandmother…” (from the accompanying tag)
An appreciative cat? I don’t think so… What I see, is a mean character, eyes narrowed, probably plotting its next attack; I can almost hear it hissing and growling at the dog across the street.

If your way finds you on Tybee Island around lunchtime, why not pop by The Crab Shack. They have crab, giant seafood platters, crab, shrimp & crab, some bbq to distract you from all that crab, and an alligator lagoon. Because what could be more appetizing than having lunch in such a charming company?
