Sorry for the absence!

The past few weeks have been a whirlwind. Richard's dad and I were out of town, and I got a new job. I apologize for not uploading photos.

Two of our friends bought Richard a little sofa/armchair. I'm thinking about re-upholstering it to match the color scheme of our house. This is how it looks right now. By the way, it sits on the floor of our dining room. Sometimes, during his house adventures, Richard climbs onto it and relaxes for a spell.

Charming, huh? It was really nice of our friends to get it. Better photos of the sofa/armchair thing in the future. I promise!

Here we have a shot of Richard in our little dvd shelf. If you ever wondered what kind of animal would hang out on dvd's and camcorders, now you know.

Richard has chosen a "bed." Actually, it's just a twisted vine that I installed in his enclosure. It was originally just for decoration (to fill empty space), but Richard actually prefers to sleep on it. Around 9:30, he climbs onto it. When the lights go out, Richie goes to sleep. The funny thing is that he doesn't hang out on that vine unless it's right before bedtime. He does not frequent it during the day! Silly lizard.

Once Richard actually tried eating a discoid roach, he developed an appetite for them. Here he is, mid-munch.

Oh! I should also mention that one of my roaches laid an egg pouch! We're looking forward to having baby roaches to give to Richard soon. (Don't say it out loud. Richard might hear. It's supposed to be a surprise)

More to come soon, I hope. :-) Thanks for reading.

Ooooh, YAY! You're back!
Love the new chair for Richard, LOL.
I have to say...the shot of him eating the cockroach is a stunning picture!! He's gorgeous :)

I'm very glad you're back posting pictures again. How goes the new job?

Hey! Yes, I'm back!

I love the chair, too. I think our friends said that it's supposed to be a miniature sample that salesmen use. :-)

People keep telling us that Richard is gorgeous. I think it's getting to my head AND his! HAHAHA! :-D

I'm enjoying my new job. I'm a research assistant. Well, I was one before, but now it's in Saint Louis, of course.

Did you miss us, Haphazardkat? :o)

I can barely recognized you now, Richard! You're growing up too fast I'm afraid.

Yep. Richie Boy is almost a Richie MAN now, Tiff.
