Just a note on the creature in the post below. Petra clarifies its nature:

"It's a WOLPERTINGER, also called "woiperdinger" in the Bavarian dialect. In parts of Austria they are called "Raurackl". They were sold to tourists who were told they were actual animals (which could only be found, what a surprise, by virgins or the like...)."

Wolpertinger! I like it. It reminds me of a Jackelope.

I'm glad you have a blog, Martha - it's nice to be able to keep tabs on you! I'm jealous you got to hang out in Eastern Europe with Bennett and Tara.

Glad to hear you got paid, as you should! Keep up the good work.
