Is it wrong for me to want a Hedgehog? Maybe the question is why do I want a hedgehog? I had a hamster once. His name was Timothy Clover. He died rather suddenly when our poodle scared him to death. How different would a hedgehog be? Just a slightly larger rodent. Right?

Someone had better tell me that hedgehogs are not somehow magical creatures that will inspire my writing. Because Lawdy how I want one. They are so dang cute. Now I have to go search out a picture of Timothy Clover to see how cute he was. Because Timothy Clover’s life was short, and I’m pretty sure if Moose got hold of a hedgehog it’s life would be even shorter.

Someone save me from myself!

A very out of focus Timothy Clover.

I won’t even tell you how much time I spent looking for photos of Timothy Clover. And I am supposed to be writing a book!  But when I finally found Timothy I also found Molly Brown. The furious beast that scared Timothy to death. RIP. As you can see I took really bad pictures.

With Molly is my friend Janet. I haven’t seen her for maybe  forty years. But I wonder what happened to her all the time. Partially because I was rotten and I owe her an apology. If you are out there anywhere Janet, I am sincerely sorry that I was such a twit when I was twelve. You were a great friend and deserved better.


Can I have a hedgehog now?

Can’t vote on the hedgehog, I “technically” have not pets at the moment (she said to the dog at her feet and the snake in the guest room). But I can shout yipee for surviving the SuperStorm! Have you thanked that tree for us yet? It did mighty well.

Better you than me, my dear. It may be cute but it don’t belong in my house.

YES!! You have my permission. Soooooo cute! Timothy Clover and Molly Brown are adorable too. But the hedge hog… the hedge hog. Are they social or solitary creatures? ‘Cause ya know if they are social you should probably get at least two if not three, just say’n.
