Oh No!! I'll never sleep thinking about those!! What about duck slippers - like duck boots from L.L. Bean (OMG maybe that is where they got the name). Maybe they tarred and feathered the ducks feet?
Here is my newest question: I said in an earlier post that my bf and I got a "magic bullet" cuisinart thingy. So he went to the store to buy all these good for you things. One of which was beets. I don't think that I have ever eaten a beet but my parents do and they always have them pickled. I know that people wanted to save cucumbers for the winter (I didn't learn about that until I was 14 - I thought that they grew on a pickle tree - don't laugh, I have had to deal with people laughing about that for 15 years) so they pickled them to make them last. But beets? Do people eat raw beets??
Also, when people first came to this country (I am in America, Texas for those of you that don't know) they were in the north and most were farmers - including my grandfather (and grandmother because my grandfather was NOT a nice man to women). So they planted their crops and all that but, due to the winter, the crop seasons only lasted so long. Didn't anyone think to move south where they could grow stuff all year??
I'd write a book on it but I think that it would confuse people because it confuses me!!
And then there are ghosts - which I am SURE exist. At my parents house his name is Oscar - here it is Grover (yes, apparently I have a Sesame Street isssue) but I like the ghosts. They comfort me but they scare the poop out of everyone else. I mean I really have ghosts - Oscar would turn the hot water off in the shower - the knob.
And here is another one - why did Hitler pick the swastika as his sign?? It used to be a peaceful sign for American Indians. I can think of a lot better fingers, I mean signs, that signify evil - why did he ruin the nice, peaceful swastika??
Do tell about the beaver in your head - sounds interesting.
Thanks for the help.
I hope that we can all help each other.
