I'm still making treats to send out to a few more family members BUT I am finished with the handmade gift this year.  I made 35 copies of a small book I wrote and illustrated. Since most of them are out in the world and I even uploaded it to Amazon to sell as a kindle book (link forthcoming), I thought I'd post it here. I only have 5 followers so I don't think I'm giving too much away.

One sunny morning

I went outside to play,

and was followed by a puppy,

somewhere along the way.

He did not bark or bite,

And he seemed very tame.

How was I to know

That this was just his special game?

He hid behind the bed,

he hid behind the chair,

he jumped up to kiss me

and latched onto my hair.

I ran around the room.

I fought and cried and bit,

puppy finally came off

As I yelled at him to sit.

I went into my room,

As I saw his sad wagging tail,

And I pulled out my gat,

and sent him back to hell.

I saw this prototype for an awesome camera and added it to my Amazon Wishlist just to remind myself of it.

Throwable Panoramic Ball Camera

But wait! It hasn't even been patented. How can I posses such a wonderus camera if only a few were in existance. Possibly I could make something?

How about I hit record on my phone's camcorder app and throw it up in the air?

It works about as well as I could imagine. Plus there was a real fear of dropping my phone. I will have to keep trying so I can one day have the camera.

Next item on my wish list:

ZERO-G Gife Package
