Ditto littlek's sentiments.
For a moment there I thought Gertrude was his capybara, and then I realized she wasn't - can't imagine why a capybara would need a boat.
I saw a capybara at the Calgary Zoo on Boxing Day and thought of Gus. I think that's why he showed up now.
May you have a better 2010 than 2009, Gus. That goes for all of us, of course, but I'm glad to see you here, Gus.
