Poem for Friday, Henry IV, Norfolk Zoo

Thursday I had the house to myself for several hours -- Paul was in the office all day, Adam had yard work, cross country, and driver's ed, Daniel went out for lunch and mini golf with my mother. This was good because I needed to finish a review of a DS9 two-parter since I won't be able to do it on Friday when I need to post it. The rest of my day involved cats getting into my food and bunnies hopping on the cul-de-sac.

In the evening we watched The Hollow Crown's Henry IV Part Two, in which Jeremy Irons (whom I'd thought was a bit flat in Part One) was extraordinary, though no more so than Tom Hiddleston and Simon Russell Beale. I haven't seen Part Two staged since college and the BBC's is terrific. Friday we are going to Baltimore to see Wings in the Water before the National Aquarium closes the exhibit. Here are some more pics from the Virginia Zoo:
