Joann, yes, it was an intentional reference. 🙂 I’ve been reading the Just So Stories to Rilla, and when the elephant and giraffe (and crocodile, a minute later) started cavorting on my leg, that’s just what it reminded me of.
Karen & Mary Beth—that hair soooo needs a shearing, but the girls and Scott won’t let me near him with the clippers! It’s a mutiny!
And don’t you dare touch that hair, it’s mine, mine, mine, all mine! (Also don’t tell Beanie, as she would beg to differ.)
He looks like a little angel with those curls,so it’s really funny to think about his real personality. The little demon. And when he looks up at you with those big blue eyes… just like Whitekit/Whitepaw/Whitestorm.
All in all my warning comes down to this: DO NOT DARE CUT HIS HAIR I MEAN IT SERIOUSLY DO NOT TOUCH IT, MUCH LESS SHEAR IT LIKE HE IS A SHEEP.
