This is my daughter Liz, and my best friend Tootsie Pop. I know, you're thinking I'm nuts, and you might be right, but the truth of it is, I don't get out much due to some chronic pain issues. That being said, the pity train left a long time ago and I actually like my life just the way it is. Between my youngest child, and all of our pocket pets, I spend most of my free time laughing my butt off, which could stand to be a bit smaller. This pic is one of my favorites. Well, honestly, I have a lot of favorites, but this is the current one. Liz was watching TV when Toots decided to fly over for a quick visit. She was trying to get Liz's attention by kissing on her chin, but something on TV set Liz off into hysterical fits of laughter, and the poor birdie bounced up and down like a superball. I grabbed the camera, and took some quick shots. In this one, Toots is looking straight at me with a face that said "Rescue me. Please." After the rollercoaster ride had momentarily stopped (Liz paused in her laughter) the bird again started to give her kisses but Liz was right back into her belly laughs, and the Tootsie Pop had to hang on for dear life. She finally gave up (Toots) and flew down to crawl up my leg and up onto my left shoulder, where it is safe and broad and STILL. I got extra kisses for that one!
