(Is that pronounced freek?)
I'm Zippy running for BOTM. Here is my current speech:
“Polly, you sure do like to collect different perches!”
“That BIG perch next to you.”
“NO, Zippy, this is a RAIN STICK”
“There's rain in there?”
“No, it SOUNDS like rain. Listen.” He turns the stick over, it makes a tinking sort of noise.
Remember way back at the beginning of the month I told you about the first castle wedding? While Kiddo and SweetPepper were away on their honeymoon, Kacey (SweetPepper's flockmate) and her boyfriend Mikey put in the skating rink and bowling alley at the castle as their wedding present to the new couple. The ice rink was for SweetPepper and the B.A. was for Kiddo. This began the tradition of the BOTM adding something to the castle if they so decided. It came in handy, because one of the earliest milongas was an ice dancing party and the next month was a bowling party.
However Kiddo wanted a contribution to the castle of his own, so he put in the Jungle room which if filled with rainforest type plants and a stream which ends in a fountain. The trees are specially picked for climbing, and the fountain and stream are exactly the right depth for a nice bath. Soon after the Jungle Room was finished, the BC Circus was held. Anyway Kiddo was in the circus with George the Tiger in a big cat training act. So when George told Kiddo he wanted to run away from the circus, Kiddo invited him to come live at the castle since he was so fond of birds (but in a good way, not a hungry way). Over time George become a sort of emissary or even a butler of the castle. When the BOTM comes to the castle his or her tour is conducted by George, and usually from his back.
Thank you so much for following my version of the history of the castle and BC. Thank you for your votes.

You know, Turk was the Master Caterer. When he flew to the Rainbow Bridge, my nephew Olly took over the catering. He ran the Pie Shop, and he and Lizzie ran Turk's Dragon Catering. Then Olly flew to the Bridge. Lizzie continued to do the catering for the Milonga's and she did the catering for Mikey and Kacey's wedding. Just hearing Turk's name makes me smile, cuz Lizzie just adored Turk! She still goes to get recipes from him at the Bridge.
