Since several readers have expressed an interest in helping me re-home my unwanted models, this morning I spent some time sorting the basement herd into "keep"...and "cull" piles.
Naturally, this attracted the attention of my children. After watching me toss a few horses onto the floor, James said, "I would like to have a computer horse."
I assumed that meant he wanted to build himself a horse on Minecraft so I didn't comment. Minecraft horses do not particularly interest me.
Then Ryan picked up an ISH, remarked that its color was sort of like Trilli's and said that he, too, would like a computer horse.
This time I decided to pursue the matter. "I'm not familiar with the term 'computer horse.' " I said. "Please explain it to me."
"Mama," Ryan said patiently. "A computer horse is a horse that stands next to a computer."
So now both kids have a computer horse of their very own. Ryan's is named Jeffrey...
and James' horse is Jack.
Does this count as successful re-homing? I can't decide. On the one hand, they no longer belong to me. On the other, well... they're still living in my basement!
