Tooth Fairy Forest - Debunked!

Ya'll get the prize for joining me in the Imaginary Forest!
Sadly (or happily!) the Tooth Fairy teeth-look-alikes were petals from nearby bushes...
They were the exact size and look of teeth, right? It was a little weird.
But they were just little petal buds of some kind. The kids didn't know what to think, and Jadyn got downright suspicious that they were actually teeth, so she walked away quickly. She's very leery of the magical beings, that girl.

So, Tooth Fairy Theory: debunked.
Unusual flower petal: Confirmed.
Next week we are off again for another adventure. It's time to visit my Mom in NC, and she has Camp Lilliput ready for the grandkids. I got an excited text from her a few days ago, reporting that a nest of guinea chicks (pardon me, guinea *keets*) had just hatched, and she can't wait to show the kids. Ideal timing, guineas, nice work! Sometimes eggs hatch, other times eggs "catch" as Phoenix says.
"Mom, Mom, Gigee said the eggs catched, and we'll see baby chicks!"
So the kids are all a-flutter, just as the chicks will be when we walk through that garage door...
Isabella has already called dibs on naming them, which I am encouraging rather mildly. Never a good idea to name something that may be harvested and roasted, I always say. I learned that lesson from my Nanny (great-grandmother), who had a taste for rabbit stew. But that's another story. Or not.

Oh, it's a country life for me...
Sure never know what you'll see...
A frog leg, a rabbit haunch, fresh chicken on your dinner table
Daggone kids, and bless my heart, I wish it were a fable...

And with that I bid you good week!
