Felt Stories

Felt Stories (click link to see the new body of work)

Life and death go hand in hand; something must exist in order to cease. I suspect that I am not alone in feeling that these past connections persist for a life time; shaping us while in the flesh, lacing their legacy with ours. Memories are the most valuable inheritance. I celebrate the life of my grandparents and treasured pets, the moments that appear unremarkable often have the greatest impact.

magnify

"Yup. You have nematodes. I recommend you lay low for awhile."

When the ant Cephalotes atratus is infected with a parasitic nematode, its normally black abdomen turns red, resembling the many red berries in the tropical forest canopy. According to researchers, this is a strategy concocted by nematodes to entice birds to eat the normally unpalatable ant and spread the parasite in their droppings.

Using the yellow pages she found the perfect babysitters for her ant grubs, Armadillo Day Care, We take care of the entire brood.
The impossibility of the situation completely eluded her.
In Texas many hope that armadillos will help slow the invasive fire-ant infestation.

subtract


Hey! What a great opportunity for a new contest! Who ever figures out this subtraction problem first will win a really cool prize!

There are four separate ant colonies in my backyard. The average population of all four colonies is 210,000 ants. If the population in the North Corner is 155,000, the East Corner is 180,000 and the West Corner is 365,000, what is the population in the South Corner?

Good Luck!!!!!

I wrote this for my Great-Niece, Ravenna, who will be 3 years old in a couple of weeks. She is flying in from Alaska to celebrate her birthday. I am also making a Lion doll with a pocket for a chicken doll. I will be sending this story to the printer today.


Chicken and LionChicken likes to sing.


Do you like to sing?


Lion likes to dance.

Do you like to dance?


Sometimes Chicken sings for Lion.

Sometimes Lion dances for Chicken.



Can you sing for Chicken and Lion?
Can you dance for Lion and Chicken?


Sometimes Chicken and Lion will put on a show for their friends.


Can you name their friends?

Are you and Chicken and Lion's friend?

The End.
