"If you are a dreamer, come in
If you are a dreamer, a wisher, a liar
A hoper, a prayer, a magic-bean buyer,
If you are a pretender, come sit by my fire
For we have some flax-golden tales to spin.
Shel Silverstein folks. My favorite poem of his ever . . . it actually ranks quite highly on the 'favorite poems ever' list. I have a 'favorite poems' list; I guess that makes me a literary nerd.
To date, my mom is *not* moving in with me. My stepdad sent her an itemized list of where all the money went - turned out he paid off some rental properties and didn't tell her. It still wasn't a nice thing to do, but it's a lot better than not being able to account for the money at all.
Tatts may be coming to live here after all - minus his testicles. He lost his damn mind every time mares were around and the deal was, if he couldn't learn the difference between work time and fun time, they had to go. So they went. Mom has discovered her bitch-tastic mare's attitude improved immensely once mom became her only outlet for socializing. So she's honestly thinking of giving Tatts to me and keeping Branna isolated.
(Normally this is the exact opposite of what you should do, as this is what drove Tatts nuts, but Mom is retired and can work with Branna 3x a day and it seems to be working, but it's weird that it does.)
I was going to take Gytha to the Chicago Thanksgiving Day parade, but then they announced the theme for the costumes: the movie FROZEN. Which takes place in Norway. And every horse in it is a Norwegian Fjord. So now I kind of have to take Toki. I know no one else would know the difference or know that I have a Fjord at home, but I would. My inner authenti-geek would twitch the whole time. So I'm going as Coronation Anna. I can wear danskins and underarmor under the dress and I have a black cloak that is very, very warm. I can line it with green fabric and gold ribbon and it will fit the dress's colors of black, green, and gold.
So that's the news from my neck of the woods!
In conclusion, here's a video of a corgi dressed as a spider:www.facebook.com/video.php?v=8…
