Belated Birthday

My birthday was way last month, but we were never able to coordinate a time for a party, so #4 daughter and her Significant Other came over Sunday and brought my presents for a belated birthday visit.

Amidala likes them as much as I do! Dragons (for SAGE) and Hello Kitty (because cats).

A WRITING PROMPT FOR YOU: An animal loves a present given to its human.

I was born in Louisville, Kentucky, but now live in the woods in southern Indiana. Though I only write fiction, I love to read non-fiction. The more I learn about this world, the more fantastic I see it is.

    Just a head’s up. The ‘Like’ button has been very slow to load lately. I’ve refreshed several times today but it has not loaded.

      Appreciate the head’s up, but I don’t know that there’s anything I can do about that, Dan. 🙁 I’ll rummage around the settings and see if it’s turned itself off. Thanks!

    Hello, Kitty…!!!!

    I got Blackjack a small stuffed black cat, and he hated it! He stalked back and forth past it several times, giving it sideways glances and lip-curls. This lasted maybe a day. Suddenly, he walked up to the sucker and gave it the smackdown up side of the head. The little critter fell over and didn’t even GET UP! Blackjack swaggered past him a couple times and tossed his head like, “Huh! He fell right over. Heh!”
    And, “Oh yeah, I’m bad. Get up, you sissy, I dare yuh!”

    Well, the “toy” stayed on the floor unmoving for days, until I took pity on it and regifted him to another, more fun cat.
