Long Arms & the Crazy Dolphins
(I went with a very simple kind of "Christmas tree" in my writing room: white branches in a white vase, with only these 2 ornaments on it. I love the way it looks.)
I was inspired to put up a quicky post by this weird and cool piece of "news" I just saw on abcnews.com: in China, the world's tallest man was asked to put his super-long arms to good use by reaching down the throats of a pair of sick bottlenose dolphins, to remove pieces of plastic they had ingested that were making them sick. How cool is that??!!?? Freaky cool. It showed pictures of him up to his shoulder in dolphin mouth. Huh. Good old long-arms! (My mom has a cat that eats plastic too. We'll have to search for the world's smallest person to reach into his little cat stomach.)
Speaking of dolphins, if you haven't seen the animation Crazy Dolphins vs the Mad Cows, click here.
And I am pleased to say, the baking has come to an end. The tally (between my mom and me) was 21 kinds. Here's a picture of some cookie tins in progress:
They went in the mail today and I can safely say I won't be baking again until next November, with one exception to make Jim's birthday cake in April! Or rather, his birthday pie.
