Jennifer included a great poem/biography.

I come from a place
Where the rivers run dark,
Where at night lions roar
And the sly jackals bark

There, a little old man
All wrinkled and brown
Stitched up my seams
Then set me back down.

An elephant, passing,
Picked me up with his trunk,
We traveled for miles
'Til I was snatched by a monk!

We swung through the trees
To a warm distant shore
Where a pirate ship parrot
Flew me quickly in board!

We sailed through the years
Through rough seas and gales
While I hung from the crow's nest
And sometimes the sails.

When last we saw shore
Through the rain and the fog
We all disembarked
For some music and grog.

Somehow in the bustle
I was dropped in the street
And landed abruptly
By a kind lady's feet.

She picked me up gently
And wiped off the dust,
She said "Susan would love you -
So send you I must!"

I was packed and sent -
Ivy Street - number 4,
And that's how I ended up
Here at your door!

Glad you like him!  I tried to go with everyone's "likes" so I hope I guessed it right for you all! Funny thing about the poem....I kind of wrote it by accident - just random thoughts running through my head....but then I felt bad not including one in everyone's box so I had to sit and ponder for a day to come up with one for everyone - haha!  Also - the feather in his hair is courtesy of my parrot - the one in my avatar.   Wink

What a cute poem.
SpookyPooky you will probably have to wait to wist this little guy.  There appears to be some problem with the wist site.

I read that the wist site is powered by Gawker.com so I went on their troubleshooting section and started a topic about it. Here's the link if you want to voice your two cents. I'm hoping if enough of us make enough noise the problem will be dealt with http://getsatisfaction.com/gawker/topics/what_happened_to_the_wists
