  1. Pesach Shalom to you and yours. The couple in the Boutis work are fascinating. Is that a squirrel he’s gutting so tenderly? Hare?

    Thanks for it.

    Thank you, to you and to yours as well.
    They are a fascinating couple, the “squirrel” is supposed to be a paschal lamb, a bit grisly, looks a bit like my chihuahua. Makes me thankful that I am vegetarian!
    Wishing you the best,
