I'm back after a brief and much-deserved break.
In keeping with the holiday spirit (...and after *perhaps* one too many
eggnogs...), we decided to give our girls special holiday names this year.
Was it on this group that I read that only female reindeer have antlers?
Don't know if it's true, but just in case:
Suzy has been renamed Dancer.
Ginger has become the Prancer.
And Hazel is the Little Vixen.
(that IS a reindeer name, isn't it?)
The girls don't care what we call them, of course, as long as they get lots
of loving and Christmas treats (not necessarily in that order) -- extra
servings of yams and beets and cranberries.
Merry merry, piggies and slaves,
