Munchkins were eager to help with any work that might need doing, including changing the water in the pond. Here they are, Sweet Pea controling the plugging and unplugging of the power and Pumpkin ready to handle the sucking of the pond water.
Pumpkin makes an editorial comment about the smell of pond scum
Later in the day Sweet Pea and I went off to do some girl shopping. Of course we stopped at the thrift shop first. I found a jelly roll pan, and she picked out a bag of spiders for herself and a bag of snakes for her brother. As we were rounding a corner she spied a horse and told me she would like to go back to look at the horse.
Oh my, she had seen this larger-than-her stuffed horse. At first she just asked to hold it to see how soft it was and when I asked her if she wanted to take it home her brown eyes got so big I thought they would pop out of her head. She was willing to put back her bag of spiders if she could have the horse, but of course I said she could have them both.
She named him Cosmo. She has thanked me once for every dollar he cost -- 15 times. She and Cosmo are tucked into bed together as I write this.
