'Tis the season to give stuff to Koralleen. How merry! Last night we went to see The Nutcracker. It was great! It was late! It was way too late for Victoria's friend G to be out on a school night and yet there she was because, hey, free Nutcracker tickets. The girls really liked it and I especially liked the part during intermission when the couple in front of us told us they were changing seats but NOT because of us. Terrible liars, but sweet nonetheless.

Then this evening I was in a parking lot when a guy gave me two nice plastic bins. His explanation was that he had to drive to Cleveland that very instant and couldn't fit another bin in his car. I looked in his car windows and sure enough there were bins in there up to the roof. I didn't press for details--he had to leave right away, remember, and I can use a couple of bins. Happily ever after and so forth.

Who knows what tomorrow will bring?

Hey, can you answer "I Spy" questions? Because M likes to bring home the Super Challenger books, and there is often one thing we just can't find

;-)

Cool on going to the nutcracker, I would love to go but haven't had time, money, & opportunity coincide. I was about Victoria's age when I saw it my first time, I think.

Sometimes I can AND I will reveal to you the not-such-a-secret for solving tough I Spy questions:

You rule! Where do you learn things like this? Is there a Cha-Cha answerer's FAQ or training course?

Chapter One

"I Spy", said the notorious Capt. V, "treasure being brought aboard."
"Oh no!", said Quarter Master Koralleen, "these are just treasure chests." Capt. V was nonplussed. "What good are empty treasure chests", she said tapping her foot ominously. "These are plastic, which means they are water proof, they keep dust and bugs out of the treasure." answered the QM. "Very well". The QM breathed a sigh of relief before Capt. V continued, "but we had best find plenty of
treasure when we reach sector 20 and 21." "You remember what befell those awful nutcracker people when they impunged the totallity of my adorablness, do you not?" "Yes Capt'n", the QM hastily responded, not wanting to become an anchor for the Cloudship, _Fuchsia_Folly_.

Capt. V picked up the command baton for her mighty warship of the air and spoke the secret call signs that allowed her to command the ships computer, the amzing brian in box that controlled the ship's navigation and the rest of the onboard systems. "Set a course for sector 20!" "Aye, aye Capt," responded the brian, as he wondered where ever he would find room for more treasue in the ship's hold.

The Gas bag drew taunt as the _Folly_ ascended, and the pinwheels of her drive began to spin as the crew looked ahead to another rousing adventure.

Huzzah!
I don't want you to get a swelled head or anything, but I had to let you know you've outdone yourself here.
