So as we approach the end of March, I'm getting ready to switch over the banner featuring our drunken walruses. We shot the new photo this weekend. In fact, Cathy's getting deeply into it and we ended up doing another "photo spread" of the walruses. We've even been planning out future photo shoots, so the little guys are here to stay. I'm not sure if they're the official mascots of the blog - the guy smashing his face against the keyboard has always been that - but they're now officially part of the blog.
However, it occurs to me that they don't have names. Nor do I have any idea what to call them. Naming things has never been a particular strong point of mine. Cathy and I spent about a week arguing about the dog's name before settling on Boo. And even now, if were to ask us, I suspect neither of us is still completely happy (Cathy still partial to Gandolf). Don't get me wrong, we obviously love the little bugger and he's always going to be Boo, but it was hard trying find a name that fit.
Same thing with the walruses. Which is why I'm throwing it open to the readers of the blog. Post your suggestions for all three walruses (Larry, Curly and Mo is right out) in the comments section. You have until the end of Thursday. Then, I'll put the names up as a poll on the blog and let readers vote on them.
I will even try and find something something to give away as a prize for the winning entry. No idea what, but I'll figure out something. And no, the walruses will not be given away as a prize.
