Morning Treasure


We named her twinkle. Poor thing went from a nice morning tossed gently in the frothy surf straight to AUSCHWITZ!! Some of the neighboring beach combers swore she was on the endangered list---but that could not be confirmed by the resident starfish expert (yes-- you guessed it-- The Tiff) So let's just say Twinkle the Starfish got Tiffed.

We just couldn't believe Mary Kathryn was so bold to actually pick up the little creature. Lily also made a grab for it-- until she determined it was alive.

Now for a more spiritual thought: Did you ever consider that God put stars in the sky and in the ocean-- the highest place and the lowest place.

ok-- for you comment snoopers--- missie and erica are my two younger sisters who have a running feud about who is actually my favorite. they comment here under the pseudonym, anonymous, keeping me guessing as to which one is actually reading my blog.

i'll let you in on the secret--- it's missie. more on her later.

not to give anyone the credit, but "remaining anonymous in my anonymity" wasn't either one of your sisters. :)

I say one of three things happens with Twinkle...(1) You start to feel bad for the Twinkle and let it go - resulting in 2 of 4 children crying. (2) You decide to keep him in that bucket and it passes on to starfish glory - resulting in 3 of 4 children crying while JD buries twinkle next to the poopie. (3) Twinkle survives the vacation and y'all bring it home with you - Resulting in a delicious snack for Molly - 4 of 4 children cry (Samuel cried because he was in one arm of Tiff witnessing her attempt to rescue Twinkle). Twinkle now has four points, has passed on to starfish glory, and JD will bury it in the backyard.

Clearly this plays out into a disaster no matter which way you cut it.

No, no... the poor little starfish won't bake. Not if Tiff's in the picture. She'll come through... she always does! :-) (there I go hearing that theme song again...)

But seriously, Mark's suggestions of the starfish's impending fate were very clever! Haha...
