Thank you, Katerina. I meant to share these squid pics with your earlier blog but I will stow them here for safekeeping. Here is the before picture. Typical Greek Vacation Shot Except when things go very wrong. Just after this picture was taken the Giant Mama Kraken of Paros came out of the bay and snatched Patti straight off the quay.

Luckily we managed to get some snapshots inside the Kraken. Here's one of the better ones.

She seems pretty calm, doesn't she?

Frankly, I think someone should write a song about the Isle of Joy and the Oil of Olay. They seem made for a couplet. I'll probably have to do it myself. Heavy sigh.

Think Calypso, Belafonte,

He sings:"We flew down to the Isle of Joy

Swam in Paradise Bay

Floating by I spied a rubber Toy

and a Bottle of Oil of Olay.

Someone screams we're Looking for Regina

Cuz she fell off her raft

All that's left of poor Regina

Is some emollient and a rubber giraffe.

Yes, this could be a hit.
