Enjoy a Happy Caturday with “Henri 2, Paw de Deux” (by Will Braden).

Roger Ebert actually declared this to be “the best internet cat video ever made.” For real! [https://twitter.com/ebertchicago/status/241709223610810368]

The series of short films even has its own Wikipedia entry. [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Henri,_le_Chat_Noir]  If only I could enjoy them. ;-)

photo DrikoLand Blog turned 5 today!  Or at least my switchover to Tumblr from Blogger occurred five years ago.  I’ve actually had a website of some kind on the Interwebs since 1994…
