Good News On The Fertility Front!!

Ok, that title should have drawn you in. No, we are not pregnant, however, a miracle ocurred today!! I found the location of the ever-important and handsome Fertility Spoon. Cora stole it and hid it over a year ago! She claimed, at the time, that some Mormon Boys had come and she had offered it in hopes of saving their children...see her post here.
.

I had placed it in the most ostentatious place, in an effort to draw out the fertility from the air and maybe even speed the adoption along. Cora claimed that it was ugly and explained to me that she would hide it. I did not believe her and took no special measures to protect the Spoon.

.

I had carved it some years ago. By myself. All alone. In an artistic way. I used all my best tricks and lots of love. When I finished it, the carving looked to me to resemble an African carving. So, I bought some ebony stain and stained it black. I was VERY proud of it. Cora, however, smiled and said, "that's nice." You know, that smile she uses when he doesn't really mean what she is saying? When I finally hung it up in a place of honor she explained to me that it was much too ugly to be in our house. I did not believe her, since she obviously had no idea what she was talking about. Since she found it repulsive, I thought I would give it a name that might make her like it. "Fertility Spoon."

.

It didn't work.

.

We played the hide it, put it up, hide it again game a few times, until she over did it. I have to hand it to her, she hid it VERY WELL. I can't believe it has been gone a whole year!

.

Here are a couple pictures, surely you can agree with me, it is a thing of beautty! (I'd take better pictures, but I'd have to take it down and I am worried she might take it again. She makes no secret that that is her intention!)

It does look like an African carving. You better hang on to it. It is beautiful. Cora, doesn't know what she is talking about.

Oh, I do know what I am talking about, it is insanely hideous and if it really was a fertility spoon hanging about 6 feet from our bed in for the last year should have worked. I think you carved a dud and it needs to be hidden again!!
