Houston, the reindeer have landed!

Hello Hello Hello!!!! I’m just popping in for a wee minute to see if anyone is still out there. I’m still here and if you happen to stop by, thank you so much for doing so!!!

I have been super busy with life, school, and hubby being unemployed. It’s a tough market out there, but I’m sure you haven’t stopped by to hear about my woes, so, on with my story…


This morning I headed off to school to try and catch up on a pile of homework. My thought was, that today being Friday, possibly the lab would be quieter then on a normal school day. I was right. So I found my favorite computer chair empty, sat down, plugged in my flash drive, and began my work. I had planned on getting the majority of it done so I wouldn’t have to spend my entire Tuesday there. I opened the program, opened my file, made one change, and BAM! Just like that, the program froze. “OK, we’ll try again.”

So, I rebooted the program, opened my file, made one change, and BAM! Just like that the program froze again. I did this about 10 times before deciding to move to another computer.

So, I opened the program on the next computer, opened the file, made one change, and BAM! The program froze. Now I’ll bet your thinking that I accidently copied the line from up above…nope! This was how I spent an hour and a half of my morning. Sound like fun? Not really!!!

In my frustration I decided to leave school and head over to the Magical Kingdom for a brisk walk and some much needed fresh air.
It would appear that most of my posts lately have been about the Mouse House and I’m beginning to think that maybe Mickey should put me on the payroll for all the free advertising I do for him.

Wow! That was a lot of text with no pictures…sorry!!!
Rabbit Trail…SORRY AGAIN!!!

Anywho, back to my brisk walk.
I arrived just in time to see the Christmas Parade, which just happens to be my favorite and then headed to Big Thunder Ranch. And guess what I found there? Can you guess? OK, I’ll just tell you…


Santa’s Reindeer!!!

YES!! Santa’s Reindeer had arrived for the season!!!


Here’s a handsome fellow!!!


There was Dasher and Dancer and Prancer and Vixen (who names a reindeer Vixen)?  Comet and Cupid and Donner and Blitzen, but do you recall…
the most famous reindeer of all? Well, that one wasn’t here. Apparently there was a huge power outage at the North Pole and Rudolf was needed to illuminate the elves workshop…gotta get those gifts finish by Christmas Eve and loaded into that sleigh.



Did you know that a reindeer sheds its antlers every year and the next year they grow back identical to the year before? Their antlers are to them what our finger prints are to us. I sure would like to hear Darwin's explanation of that one. And while I’m at it I’ll throw in another interesting tid bit. Did you know that if two Love Birds with different markings breed, their offspring will have characteristics of both, but not look identical to either? But that’s not the interesting part. The interesting part is that the offspring are born sterile. They can not reproduce. I guess they’ve never heard of evolution.
Oh there I go again, off on another rabbit trail.


Well, I better get out of here for now. Hubby and I are going to have a large bowl of popcorn and watch Les Miserables with Liam Neeson.

I hope you have a fun and peaceful evening…Can you believe that Thanksgiving is only a week away? Me either!

Ah, technology. Those reindeer are beautiful. So fun how you can pop in there. Our youngest daughter lost her job. She will work through the end of December..... Then who but God knows. Praying God opens a door for your hubby. Take care!
