Bonnie and Clyde
Just went to the basement to fetch the wash and stick it in the dryer. I realized that I've forgotten to mention the other members of the household: salamanders. For the moment their names are Bonnie and Clyde. There is a third but I've only seen the tip of the tail...so no name yet. They came with the house. They spend most of their little lives under the old chimney base. The damp to wet environment of the basement seems to work for them. I've absolutely not idea how they came to live here. Having them down there feels as though this house should be a chapter in a Garrison Keillor story.
