Good grief, I think I made the coffee too strong this morning. It is great though to have the puter to myself to draw this little mischievous creature.

Thought to be extinct, this little flower rarely seen grows high in the recesses of the Cookooahochoa tree. Very medicinal and thought to cure the hick-ups is highly sought after by the Europeans for their occasional over indulgence with dark strong beer highly coveted by Americans.

Please note: Must be transplanted in the first two days of May as they become quite testy and will bite. They spread quickly in other continents and grow larger also. Illegal to transport beyond their natural borders as they are protein consumers and due to abnormal growth may resort to small animals and birds.

Aaah yeeees. . . appears to be a troll doll that's been bit by the tse-tse fly. Starbucko, fetch the medicinal brew. . . <hic!>

Hahaha! Very funny description. Don't know whether I like that more than the pic or visa versa. Very cute both.

Very addictive here in Florida and if dogs, cats ,squirrels or birds get them while young, the antics are a hoot. Beware when when they reach adult age thogh!
