    Ok. It's my day off, but I still wake up at 3am. Here's my little photo shoot that you have to look at the pictures in reverse to get the story. Right to left. Darn it all...I should have shot this in a corner. Starbie's donkey got out!!

    Okay...I added a few more. This gets tricky as I can't figure out how to move the photos around.

    View the first three in reverse, then the last few in reverse. It DOES tell a story. ;)

    They were actually Christmas gifts that I gave to my grandmother as a child. I have tons of them that were given to me upon her death. I'd save for months to buy a dollar figurine to give to her. They sit on my shelf in my office and I looked over this morning and thought...hmmm...I could tell a story here.

    I also have a huge collection of tiny salt and pepper shakers that I gave to her. You'd think one was enough, but for some reason I kept buying them for her.

    LOL you kept buying them for her because I'm sure she made a big deal out of liking them. :) My kids did that with my Mom.......she's got a whole box of nothing but little knick knacks they bought her from Santa's Secret Shop at school.........Which I'm sure they'll get them all back again once she passes. lol

    I was only able to save up to buy my grandma one gift. It was for her 65th birthday.....which for some reason was a huge deal in our family. I bought her a pretty pair of clip on earrings (she refused to pierce her ears). I remember hunting for just the right gift until my step dad nearly had a nervous breakdown. lol Which explains how I got the money.......he probably gave me a dozen odd jobs to do for it. I was so proud of that gift. Gosh, I think I was only 5 at the time. lol

    Those earrings are sitting in my jewelry box. lol :)

    Well NOW it makes sense.

    The Budda, the new purse, the blurting out Mandarin.....the random use of sporks.....the chatting with total strangers. I'm a donkey pawn in another dimension.....running FREeeeee and wild with reckless abandon chatting with Godzilla sporks, and making new friends at 4:00 in the morning.

    I KNEW IT WAS YOU!!! ;)

    I'm just havin' a () trouble with that last group photo - you know the one of all of us chatting where you're pretending to be the heavenly body with wings? I ain't buyin' it sista. :laugh: Now if you'd been a bowling pin? MAYBE. :tongue:

    GREAT STORY.....Luv ya.

    I'll have to look from home...dang our new security...

    But I wanted to tell the owner of a fairly large collection of Loony Toon salt and pepper shakers given to me by a very special child....I'll bet your grandma adored every one of those figurines.

    Well, adjustment might be good. But, since I'm not on any that would be a problem. :) They'd be adjusting my milk intake and that would make me REALLY angry.
