Monkey Mama had a dream

Awright, we all have dreams. So what was different about this one?

Several things--for one, I remember a bunch of it. That doesn't happen a lot. For another, it was a G or PG dream, so I figured it would be OK for Lydia to read it.

Here goes: I was in a house very similar to the one we live in now, five-room plain little house, empty house (that's different from ours!), that maybe we were getting read to sell. On an inspection of the house, we found some animals living there. They seemed to be about the size of squirrels or chipmunks and didn't seem fearful (in that they didn't run and hide when they smelled humans.) What was unusual about them was their coloration. Some of them were brown with white spots--sort of irregular spotting, not anything symmetrical or possibly related to camouflage. There weren't a lot of them, probably no more than 3 or 4 to a room.

Once we had kind of adjusted to these spotty chipmunks, we started to see black ones, with blue glow-in-the-dark stripes and spots. That was really weird. As I said to someone who was in the house with me, "I know birds and fish can be blue, but I don't believe I've ever seen a mammal with glow-in-the dark blue spots!"

There were a few other loose ends that made this dream interesting. My kids will recognize this reference: The Lone Ranger's horse and Tonto's horse were there, not real horses, but plastic figurines about 6" tall. I didn't see the "men" who rode the horses. I thought the figurines might possibly be at my house, so I was going to look for them. Just in case the figurines were there at that house and might show up, I left a note for them on a piece of paper, telling them where I was going. Then I wanted a way for them to acknowledge the note, so I asked if anyone had a golf pencil, since sometimes the two of them could work together and write with a golf pencil. Fortunately one of the men who was there had several in his pocket, so we left one with the note.

And another loose end that has me puzzled: There was a woman there in a gorilla suit, a black suit, and a blue plastic hula skirt that pretty much hung from her shoulders. She wasn't a gorilla, just someone dressed up as one. I have no idea why she was there, but she was helping me look for the chipmunks.

Now if anyone can figure out this dream for me or at least tie in some of those loose ends, I'd appreciate it. Thanks, love to all, and God bless.

Um.... did you eat spicy food before going to bed? I've known people who swear they have wierd dreams when they eat spicy food too close to bedtime.

I've had some real doozies, although they can't really be shared here. Not sure what it means, though. Sorry I can't help you more on that.

I'd love to know the significance of the Lone Ranger and Tonto, and why you were so sure they could use a golf pencil.

The Lone Ranger and Tonto were toys that belonged to my brother. They were at my parents' house when my kids visited, and were some of their favorite playthings. Golf pencil, pencil stub, something small--that's what they needed. I don't think they would be strong enough to handle a ballpoint pen or a larger pencil.

Come on, ladies and gentlemen! We have a potential bestseller here!

I assumed it was a golf pencil because one of them had a golf tee for a replacement leg. Although now that I think about it it wasn't a golf tee but one of the pegs from that puzzle game they put on the tables at Cracker Barrel. Does that game have a name?

Tooz said...

Just solitaire, as far as I know. Your granny loved it, and grandaddy used to bring her golf tees to use for pegs, so it probably was a golf tee. Love you all.

You get to go to Friendship International today, don't you? Are you going to tell us all about the babies you got to play with?

Also, when are you going to post the story about why Dover Manor has a lid on its fish tank? I would love to hear it!

Love you great big bunches!

Maybe the Lone Ranger and Tonto left their horses so they could go to the dump, to the dump, to the dump-dump-dump....

Hey, where y'at? Miss reading about your adventures (whether they be real or only dreamt).

I had a dream last night, too! I dreamed that I woke up and you had put a new post up on your blog. But then I woke up and found that the same post is still on here...
