Whoa, Nellie!

22 Nov

I bought this rocking horse at the local flea market about three weeks ago. I figured it would make a nice Christmas gift for my Amish girlfriend’s two little children. When you squeeze the ears one side makes the horse shake his head and whinny, and the other side makes a clip-clop noise.

The cat ran into the kitchen to see what was going on, and slammed on the brakes, skidding several feet. He took one look, arched his back and hissed! You’d have thought I’d have brought in a live animal into the house!
