chapter 9, Page 3 Just a cartoon!

The art of over analyzing animated stories.

In case you're curious, or couldn't guess, Mary and family are watching X-Men: Evolution in this episode.

That still bugs me...

Chapter 9, Page 2 Over thinking.

An imagination is a dangerous thing.

Mom's suggestion was a good one. It's just that Mary has a way of overdoing, well, everything. She also tends to be rather dramatic. Or did you already notice?

Chapter 9, Page 1 Minnesota action hero

MacGyver defines awesome.

I wouldn't say that I (or Mary) had a crush on MacGyver at this point. That would necessitate wanting to be with him. I just wanted to *be* him. Doesn't hurt any to find out that your favorite action hero hails from your home state.

Chapter 9, Title Page

There isn't really more than one, it just feels like it.

Here it is, as promised. The new chapter starts now. Whether I can maintain a regular update schedule is yet to be seen. (Life has been, ah, interesting.)

Chapter 8, Page 22 Sad movie

Mary gets emotional.

It doesn't really help to point out that it's just a story. Even with that knowledge firmly in place a good story will still affect Mary as if it were real. And she's easily affected by sad things. Rather annoying, actually. (To her as well as everyone around her.)

Note, next Monday the new chapter starts. Back to the old familiar layout.

Chapter 8, Page 21 Zoom!

Surprisingly fast.

Never would have guessed turtles could move like that. Of course, they aren't terribly maneuverable, but they aren't all that slow, either. At least that species. Red-eared slider, I think is the name.

Chapter 8, Page 20 Serene moment

The willow is a great place to sit and think.

I love that old willow. And I do mean old. It's probably older than the house and that's roughly 100-years-old.

Chapter 8, Page 19 Study sleep

Homework is exhausting.

Mainly because it gets boring sooooo easily.

Chapter 8, Page 18 Feeding time.

Way too much attention.

Honestly, would you be hungry?

Chapter 8, Page 17 Face to...beak?

A little too close.

Dad isn't scared, just startled. Can't blame him.

Chapter 8, Page 16 Pet in a bucket

Happy dance!

Seems Mary is happier about this than the others.

Chapter 8, Page 15 Shell station

That is a lucky turtle.

Maybe Mom has warm feelings for the cold blooded?
