I’ve been indulging my love of small creechers lately and have put up a storefront to sell them from. I’m trying Ko-Fi because of the no fees and it allowing me to set the shipping fees (lower than I actually pay Canada Post, but god, Canda Post wants 20+ dollars for shipping for the smallest packages, so I’m doing my best here)
If you want small ceramic animals, I’m your man. The majority of them are an inch or less in height.

New ghost story up!
Fake It ‘Til You Make It: Madame Lareesia, aka Patricia ‘Patty’ Miller of Detroit, Michigan is not in the business of providing truthful fortunes to her customers. She provides a bespoke service of comfort and pat solutions. To her annoyance, her spectral playmate believes honesty is the best policy.
Tater Tots Supreme
Something a little different today – in Canada, the Taco Bells serve fries and one of those fry dishes is the Fries Supreme. Unfortunately, where I live the Taco Bell vanished overnight (aliens?) so we had to come up with our own version to satisfy the craving.
I present to you a hamster bandit recipe.
Tater Tots Supreme
1 bag tater tots
1 pound ground beef + packet of taco seasoning
1 jar nacho cheese sauce
1 container of sour cream (added to taste)
1 handful shredded cheese of choice
Cook ground beef w/ taco seasoning
Layer tater tots (frozen) into casserole dish (long and rectangular preferred)
Layer on beef
Layer on nacho cheese sauce
Layer on sour cream
Toss on the cheese
Bake until whatever time it takes to make a frozen tater tot into food according to instructions.

I lived alone with my daughter in a house which was far too large for us, but had the advantage of being inherited from my parents. I worked hard to maintain it and expected my daughter to do what she could to make raising her simpler. She was a quiet girl, her most obvious fault a tendency toward flights of fancy while I did my best to keep her anchored in reality.
