This was the first stamp I purchased from Newton’s Nook. I still love it! It is just weird sometimes for me to think about things like that. I don’t know what was making me think about it really. I get strangely sentimental sometimes, it used to happen a lot, now it seems to just come up once in a while.
That squirrel with the knife is a bit scary. I mean overall I think it is a really cute scene, I just then realize that one of the squirrels is wielding a knife and that is a bit unsettling. Then again I had squirrels trap me in my van one day so it just might be that we have overly aggressive big city squirrels around here and I wouldn’t be surprised if one knew how to use a knife.
Bats are really cool. A friend of mine nursed one back to health that flew into her apartment and was injured. When my nephew was young he always wanted to camp out at the bat exhibit at the zoo. One of the cool things is that here in Oregon are bats only eat insects and they eat a lot of them! Something like 1,000 an hour. They also are good at pollinating. There young are called pups which is also very sweet.
So last weekend when my nephew and I visited the craft store I noticed that Crayola was on sale. He has been wanting some decent colored pencils and I have wanted watercolor colored pencils for a while now. When I did my online research Crayola was actually rated fairly highly, so we got some. I am loving them! I just want more colors now, and so I am looking at what my next step is…
Something about the look on the kitty’s face, I think, kept making me think of Professor McGonagall. Of course, the hat doesn’t hurt with that.
