# 26

Anyone ever see the mini series Dinotopia when it was on television? It aired back in 2002, but it's been on a few times since then.

Well.. way back when (sounds like Once Upon a Time huh?!) the show was on television, they had a web site. On the site they had some contest going... I forget the big prize but MANY little prizes were awarded... and guess who received one of those little prizes?! (you didn't think I'd win something big did you? pshawww!)

Heh.. it was a tiny stuffed dinosaur in his plastic eggshell.. his name is #26. I'm happy to report that after these past few years, he hasn't eaten very little, and so he hasn't grown...

#26 got loose the other day (the little rascal!)....... and went right to the book pile!

He seems interested in Gene Wolfe's The Knight ! I wonder if he even knows what a Knight is??? Maybe he thinks the dragon is a relative????

I wonder if he's telling me that I should read that next?.. well.. no.. I think I know what book is next, and I know that I'm saving Neil Gaiman's Stardust to take with me to Florida... it's a paperback and lighter to carry then my other books. (no fool here since I have to lift the luggage above my head to store it on the plane..hardback books stay home!)

Anyway... I managed to get #26 safely back into his "plastic egg shell". Now hopefully, I don't have to go around and check to see if he left me any little "surprises"!

..... 'till next time....

Naomi: lol, yes I like an animal that is easy maintenance!

Chris: yes I sent for both books, but both are "used" and mailed separate.. waiting for the arrival of the Wizard as we speak! (got the hardbacks for 7.00 each!

You'll have to tell us what you think of the "The Knight." I've looked at it but never picked it up.

And what can I say, #26 is adorable.
