the ace novelty plush pokeys are actually weirdly adorable! but i've found over the years on items that pokey tends to be drawn with pinpoint pupils here & there, making him look spooked, like on the cookie jar i have in my kitchen i have to turn/angle it so he doesn't appear terrified all the time.. lol https://friendlyghost.typepad.com/lost_found_vintage_toys/2014/05/gumby-pokey-cookie-jar.html
pouring rain woke me up before dawn, thunder & lightning over & over #rain #pdx #portland #wildfires #oregonfires2020 #infj #blog #introvert #toxicair #ghostgallery #rowsofneveropeneddoors we all woke up to see.. hope it's enough to put out the nearby fire & clear up our toxic air? these have been some of the longest months of my life. i feel like i've been changed, i know i've always been eccentric, but it's pretty locked in now. sunday will mark one year since i lost my special kitty, my soul sister, snug. i don't know how i've made it through this whole year without her. she was my therapy cat, an alpha wave generator to be sure, she calmed my troubled brain when i could not. still cannot. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5yPw_aR2Y9Q
