A Ferret Named Billy

Today, I woke up to the sun streaming in my windows. The soft glow interrupted my dreaming state at the precise moment when the Prince was about to kiss me. How terribly disappointed I was not to touch his lips with mine... click to read more!

An Enchanted Memory

It was whimsical little structure, seemingly right out of a fairy tale.  Straight lines were non-existent, almost like a child had built it.  There was an arched door that widened at the top, a railing that slanted toward the slide, a porthole that opened outward, and even a chimney that was more cartoonish than functional; leaning as if to puff out smoke like that of a dancing tugboat...

The mid-afternoon sun cast its glow on mounds of blankets draped haphazardly over furniture and tables. Dust particles floated among the golden rays when one quilted corner flung open. An enthusiastic little boy jumped up onto the couch raising a ball high above his head. He appeared to struggle under its weight, but the blue and white sphere was no match for this child. Dressed in a black pirate hat with a bouncing red feather, he adjusted the patch over his left eye with his free hand and growled, “To the port bow!”...
