Crazy Bitch

Well, this is certainly a night for the Halloween season. Storms moved in this afternoon, reflecting the overall mood that pervades this place. At one point lightning illuminated the house on regular intervals. A light show specific to solar houses; especially those that don't have curtains. Even with many of the windows open, the air is still thick and heavy. Not much of a breeze blowing despite the foul weather.
I think I shall name this land The Valley Of Misfit Things (a homage to The Isle Of Misfit Toys) and I will be Queen MoonRacer. Queen of all Fucked Up Things. I will scour all of the local animal shelters and only take in creatures that are deformed like me. You know, 3-legged dogs, 3-legged chickens.... beings that no one else wants. And I will take care of them and give them a full life. Well, the chickens might eventually go in the freezer but they will be happy up until then. Makes sense to me. We can relate to each other. You know, animals seem to understand things about people even though they can't speak. It won't matter to them the way I am. They will be my children since I can't have my own. They will be my companions since I don't know how to maintain such a human relationship.
And Grendal can be Second-in-Command! I may even make her a little hat to wear! She would probably get a kick out of that. Now I must go and ready the projectile turtles and man-eating goats*. (long time readers know) Even I have sense enough to know when I'm whipped.

Sounds like you'll have an interesting place when you're through!

Don't know if I've ever seen a three legged chicken before! Do they still lay?

Sometimes you just crack me up, Anne! That's why we love ya!

Been trying to catch up on things at home since we got home late Tuesday. Sorry to hear you are feeling a bit down. Happens to all of us at one time or another. Health issues can really be a bummer and like you I try to avoid meds whenever possible, but then when there's pain involved, they can be most welcome. Hope that the procedure helps you feel better sooner than later, Annie. You know we all care.

Hey Loretta! thanks; yeah, I was kinda down but things are better now.

Hey Beatrice! thanks! I think things will be better here shortly.
