The Big Thing: Ayla often sits in front of the TV and watches some of the things moving.  She particularly likes batting at golf balls in flight, but I don't watch much golf since Dad moved out.  So she mostly watches critters on nature shows now.

I was watching a DVD on prehistoric mammals, and got a good picture of her batting at the young one of this pair.  I remember these creatures from childhood as Baluchitherium, but the name is now different (or maybe it was a close cousin), and I don't recall the name from the show.  I wonder what she would think if she realized that even that young one weighed several tons in reality?
I was surprised to get a good picture.  Usually, the autoflash goes off and shows a bright reflection or the picture is blurry (maybe DVDs photograph better than cable signals).

Iza seldom pays any attention to the TV pictures, and Marley never does.  Interestingly, none of the Mews have ever paid any attention to themselves or the others in the mirror.
