Hobkin's 5th Birthday

Recent Entries · Archive · Friends · Profile

* * *
It's Hobkin's birthday! The fuzzwit is five years old today. According to American Domestic Skunk Association skunk show standards, five years qualifies as a senior skunk. So far, Hobkin doesn't show any signs of slowing down. Thankfully.

We're baking a cherry pie for him to celebrate his birthday. He'll get a small slice. I anticipate sticky paws . . . and nose and fur.


Big smile for the camera!




Bigger smile! Hamming it up.


Munching a greenie.


Paw licking good.

Received:
- 48-day (reprint) Sale of "The Snow Woman's Daughter" to Escape Pod (or possibly their new, as-of-yet-untitled Fantasy spin-off podcast 'zine). Yay!
- Confirmation from Dragon*Con of my guest status for 2007.


Published:
- My April Writing for Young Readers column: "An Interview with Judy Burke of Highlights for Children".


New Words:
- 1000 on the Persian fairy tale retelling. Nearly at zero draft. It's several hundred words longer than what I was aiming for, but I'm hoping to do some cutting in editing.

How does one generally get to be a guest? I've tried in the past, but to no avail.

Pretty much I fill in the application and cross my fingers. This year, there's an online application form which makes it a little easier.

If I didn't already have two cats and a dog I'd want a skunk too. Adorable.

I have no idea how you stand that much cute. The half-life on it has to be good for 5,000 years.

He looks abashed in that last picture. Adorable!

Safety goggles. Yup. Also, we frequently stumble about in a cute-struck daze. Certainly explains how the little fuzzwit has the smallest brain in the household, yet has both me and the hubby wrapped around his little paw . . .

Belated (just my computer up and running again) but sincere wishes for many more happy years! Hobkin is still one of my favorite cuties! (Thinking of him trundling or bouncing along, tail in the air, always makes me smile!) :D
