A Cactus Named Survivor

This week TSG bid adieu to our long-time next door neighbor Yvonne, who is moving on to greener pastures. As a parting gift, she gave us a scraggly little cactus, one that she had jokingly been "trying to kill" for the last 5 or 6 years.

Actually...she said she was gong to toss the poor succulent in the trash, so we offered to adopt it.  We said we would take good care of it and wondered if the cactus had a name.

"Survivor," Yvonne said, "I have a brown thumb when it comes to plants, but this little guy just refuses to die."

So TSG welcomes Survivor as a co-guardian of our humble entryway. We're already thinking about upgrading to a more decorative pot.

Speaking of Survivor, we've been trying to figure out a way to incorporate the photo below into a blog post, and this is a perfect opportunity.  Bonus points if you get the Probst-related joke (however bad it may be).
