Alcibiades at age two
Here then is Alcibiades, a good two years old now, waxing strong as the Good Book says. Al is especially fond of Joshua, a squeaky plastic toy or a ball, treats and ice cubes. He loves going down to the batting cage at Palmer Cove and fetching his toy, but has yet to master the art of returning it to his master. To call Joshua or me a "master" in this context is still something of a misnomer. Al, like many of us, has an independent turn of mind.
