You don't say? Part 6

(Insert Funny Caption Here.)

Stressed about stuffing a turkey? Not ready to face less than 30 days til Christmas? In-laws arriving this week? We all need a distraction from the holiday bustle that is about to descend upon us!
Leave a funny caption for this week's photo. One comment will be randomly drawn on Saturday. The winner will receive a Purple Martin bird pictured here in the photo.
In Etsy shop news, I added my Illustrated Manuscript Beads since they received such rave reviews from everyone! Join me tomorrow for some holiday gift ideas.

On the first day of Christmas my true love gave to me
A white dove in a pear tree
On the second day of Christmas my true love gave to me
Two owls a hooting
And a white dove in a pear tree
On the third day of Christmas my true love gave to me
three canaries chirping
two owls a hooting
and a white dove in a pear tree.
On the fourth day of Christmas
my true love gave to me
four hedgehogs burrowing
three canaries chirping
two owls a hooting and
a white dove in a pear tree.
On the fifth day of Christmas my true love gave to me
Five purple martins
Four hedgehogs burrowing
three canaries chirping
two owls a hooting
and a white dove in a pear tree.
On the sixth day of Christmas my true love gave to me
Six squirrels a chattering
Five purple martins
Four hedgehogs burrowing
three canaries chirping
two owls a hooting
and a white dove in a pear tree.
That's it I can't take it any more!

fabfibers what story is that from?

All of the denizens of the woodlands were invited to Queen Mab's Solstice party. Despite the fact that the faerie queen already owned everything in the forest, she always expected gifts for the holiday season. For the faeries of the woods, it was easy, for they could craft wondrous gifts. But for the tiny forest creatures, it was not so easy.

The squirrels, the birds, and the hedgehogs were all quite poor, but they very much wanted to attend the party and present their queen with a gift (for despite being a bit self-centered and greedy, she was well-loved by her people because she had kept civilization from encroaching on her wooded domain). Pooling their resources together, the tiny creatures found they had enough money to order the queen a new crown from Etsy.

But alas! When the day arrived to go to the party, there was no crown. "Where's the crown?" said the birds to the hedgehogs, who had been guarding the money.

"We thought the squirrels were going to order it," said the hedgehogs. "Their dexterous little paws are the best for using a computer."

"Nay," said the squirrels. "We thought the birds were going to order it, because they kept talking about it on Twitter."

"You know," said the hedgehogs, "we spend so much time on the computer that I'm beginning to think perhaps the queen has not done such a great job of keeping civilization at bay."

"I know!" said the squirrels. "Let us put our technological skills to work! Let's set up a website for the forest!"

And so they did, and the queen was so delighted that she had them all line up for a photograph (although she liked to call them "magical pictures"), to be posted on the website, where they were credited with bringing the faerie kingdom into the 21st century.

The Wizard of OZ
Dorothy and the gang were hanging outside of the Wicked Witches castle during the changing of the Guards. They sang this song as they marched into the castle. Its been playing on TV for weeks now, I always watch it once...
What a world, what a world....

Half a league, half a league,
Half a league onward,
All in the valley of Clay
Rode the six hundred.
"Forward, the Bead Brigade!

What a world, what a world said the wicked witch of the West.

But were not having any of that. We are going to see the Queen!

On the avenue I'm taking you to,

(birds whispering to squirrels) Whose idea was it to send the hedgehogs first? They'll eat everything!
