A little internet research told me it’s a Long Toed Salamander. According to the experts, it’s common in WA State. Who knew, because I’ve certainly never seen one before! I love little squirmy reptiley things; one of the highlights of my trip to Florida was all the teeny little lizards that scurried everywhere. It really surprised me to find a salamander in my front yard, though, because I thought they required nearby ponds, and we haven’t got one. We are extremely lacking in water; we haven’t even got a convenient ditch.

I wonder if this will give George RR Martin a little incentive to finish the series. I mean, what’s going to happen, if he can’t write faster than HBO can film? Do they get to make up their own ending, or what?
And yeah, I realize that’s usually what happens anyway. Sigh. (Despite the sigh, still happy.)
