I love farm kids. They are really very responsible. Did she raise an animal as a project?

I don't think I've seen that. Will have to look.

That first video was the one I meant. I liked the second one too.

Shrek was questioning if I had made up the reason otters hold hands and found that one. Sometimes he's not sure if I am making a joke or being serious.

Good one bucky!

Oh squeeeeee, those sea otters were so cute!


Now my "last thing that made you smile" has been bumped down to second-last. I thoroughly enjoyed my first glass of this season's apple cider. Cold. The next one will be warmed with mulling spices. Just maybe a pinch of brown sugar. Yum.

Yesterday I worked our library's annual book sale. It is a (real book) reader's delight. During the last few hours of the sale we sell any bag of books for $5, any box $10. What makes me smile is grandparents scarfing up kiddie books to read to their brood. But more than that, the kids, I think 8-16 year old in the hours I worked, who really, really got into it. One young man (I'd say around 9 or so) seemed nonchalant when he walked in with grandpa, but with a huge grin when he walked out with a grocery bag full of books. There was the gal I'd take for 16 or so who collected jigsaw puzzles, the 11 year old who told someone, "Oh, I really am not fond of that author," in such a manner I cracked up. I worked the last shift of the sale and there were some old-fashioned games left that I thought were doomed for the garbage heap, but they were both swooped up by young people who were into non-computer-games. Maybe it's a retro-fad, old games and puzzles? Anyway, great fun.
