Blogger Bingo Bulletin

Okay, so it's official. We're sponsoring Rhinebeck Blogger Bingo. Ms. McYarnpants herself will be signing books at our booth. I am very excited, though I've asked Stitchy to keep my name on as a square only. Don't want any of those conflict of interest thingies.

We are going to be in booth 39D. Barn 39 is located back by the main sheep barns. There's a map of the fairgrounds here. Because it's not in a row with the other vendor barns, we seem to get less traffic. Or people go into fiber overload before they make it to us. Now you, gentle readers, will have a chance to rectify that.

More Murine Membranes

Here are the latest iterations of the mouse skins:


I'm quite pleased with the look of these, so it may be a primary color theme.

and keeping with the alliterative theme...

Mawling Minou*

Some actually did ask. Well, Kit sort of demanded, but she's my Rhinebeck ride, so I'm obliged to oblige.


It actually could have been much worse, and I have the scars to prove it. I had just finished closing a minor laceration on a cat who was quite frightened. He'd been essentially paralyzed with fear during the entire visit (despite getting good drugs) and finally exploded without warning. I'm generally pretty fast. I've been working with 'nature, red in tooth and claw' for a long time. This time, though, I just couldn't get my hand out of the way fast enough. I'm just glad it wasn't a bite.

* That's French for 'Kitty'

Will you be mad at me if I say those mice look too much like sperm? :D

Yay for hosting Stitchy. That will bring some good traffic to your booth. I would have made sure to go anyway.

WE used to have a tortoiseshell. Tigger had marks like that on her legs a lot when she was little, just for walking by a little to closely or unsteadily or something.
