Of Cider Tasting, Guinea Pigs and Chipmunks

Ok, so I've decided that I want at least two chipmunks nesting in my hair, two guinea pigs sitting on my shoulders burrowing into the hair at the bottom of my neck (one of which has to be Monkey and the other one should be this gorgeous Grey fluffy Abysinnian that we saw at Tully's Farm - Unfortunately no photos of it though), I also want two bunnies and a cat who was raised with bunnies sitting on my lap, a Black lab leaning against one leg, an Alaskan Malamut against the other leg and a King Charles Spaniel on my feet. . .and a bigger lap to fit all the rest of the animals that I want to cuddle. . .But I especially want the chipmunks and the bunnies and the . . . Ok, I just want all the animals I can get. . .Chipmunks are sooooo cute though. After the cider tasting (which I will get to in a second) we went to a little petting-type zoo with Bunnies and Guineas and birds and Chipmunks. . .they're like, little, and quick and furry and friendly and there were THREE of them (although they looked NOTHING like Alvin, Simon and Theodore). . .and the aforementioned Grey fluffy Guinea was just ADORABLE and Shelley was joking about stealing it and bringing it home (and was also saying that if it was a girl Monkey and her would make the most beautiful babies) but my sensible side (I apparently have one, it came as a shock to me too) said no.
And as for the Cider tasting, that was just AWESOME. . .the little shed smelled so strong that you could've gotten drunk off the fumes alone. There were wasps buzzing around the ceiling that were so drunk they kept bouncing into the casks (drunk wasps are funny) and there were fruit wines and meads and dry ciders and sweet ciders and Perry (Cider made of Pears). And free tastings of whatever you wanted. . .bad bad bad. . .(or more to the point, fun fun fun!!) And we ended up spending like 25 pounds on Elderberry wine and meads. . .mmmmm, alcoholic liquid honey. . .
So Shelley and I want to go back there and taste more and probably spend more. . .but in the mean time we will have to just be content with our meads and our Elderberry Wine. . .
