New Arrival

I don't buy new plastics that often, and new Traditionals are an even rarer addition to my collection.  After scoring a black Proud Arabian Foal at an antique mall, though, I had to start searching for a mother.  I finally found a winner: Carinosa, at the right price and the right time.  She arrived today, and wow.  Such a gorgeous sculpture! I dubbed mine Carnivale, and her baby has been named Casio. 

She needs clothes now! I'm thinking a nice, normal stable halter.  I have some Rio Rondo halter hardware floating around, and this would be a perfect use for it.

In other news...there really isn't a lot of other news.  I've been painfully lazy all day, and it's the kind of lazy that doesn't have a very good cure.  My house is busy and loud today, and I'm having difficulty focusing on a lot of the really important stuff that needs to be done.  I'll keep plugging away at it, but I don't think today is going to be very productive.

Also! The pilot light on our water heater went out last night.  I discovered this when I went to take a shower.  It didn't get fixed last night, but no one told me that.  My first thought this morning was "Shower!" and alas, the water was still very, very cold.  A repairman can't be here for another 3 hours.  It's funny how when you can't do something, it's often the only thing you can think about.  And by funny, I mean start out laughing and end up sobbing hysterically.
