I wish I could capture all of the fun things that are related around our campfire, but there are not enough hours in the day to do that.  Our digusdi have great senses of humor!  This morning Howling Caterpillar told us this one. 
Perhaps it was especially funny to me because there was much Scotch -Creek intermarriage.  I come from a long line of McDonalds, McIntosh’s and my Dad was Johnie Walker.  Here is the joke:

A kilted Scotsman was walking down a country path after finishing off a large amount of whisky at a local pub. He felt quite sleepy and decided to nap against a tree.

As he slept, two female tourists heard his loud snoring. When they found him, one said, “I’ve always wondered what a Scotsman wears under his kilt.”

She boldly walked over to the sleeper, raised his kilt, and saw that he wore nothing at all. Her friend said, “Well, the mystery is solved! Let’s thank him for sharing!”

She took off her pretty blue hair ribbon and gently tied it around the Scotsman’s endowment. A while later, the Scotsman was awakened by the call of nature. He raised his kilt and was bewildered at the sight of the neatly tied blue ribbon. He stared for a minute, then said, “I don’t know where y’been laddie… but it’s nice ta see you won firrrst prrrize!”

Howling Caterpillar is also Akiwisilkie on Etsy.  She operates both of these delightful stores and logs onto the thread with both personas.
Here are examples of her work.  The first is from Howling Caterpillar.

Hand Carved Emu Egg w/Dreamcatcher - Eagle/Skull/Feathers

And here is another one for our great friend, Ron, 1 Eggman

A baby chicken asks…
Am I people?
No…you are chicken.
Do chickens come from people?
No…chickens come from eggs.
Are eggs born?
No…eggs are laid.
Are people laid?
Some are, some are chicken!

Ron certainly isn’t chicken when it comes to eggs!  His carvings are absolutely amazing.
