Magic Slipper and Cinderella Coach

Mimi - Am afraid to ask but have no choice...what on earth is a "mud stabber?" Sounds ferocious!
Must get some sleep but will check tomorrow for hopefully an answer.

When I was growing up, I would go to my Uncle's ranch in Clarksville Texas in the summer. It was great fun! That's where I learned to drive....out in the pasture...in a 1950's Ford pick-up! We would drive down to "Sulfur Bottom" where they were filming the movie "Home From the Hill" ( a really big deal for a rural Texas community) and chase "mud stabbers" (these ugly brown, mud encrusted horny toads , poor things)! No one ever touched them,they were really quite large, and looked like something from Prehistoric times to us!
Would NEVER want to kiss one of those...even if the handsome prince might possibly look like Pierce Brosnan !!
That's my story,

Loved your story and the way you painted a picture. I think you're a very good writer!

Love your explanation of "mud stabbers." Sulfur Bottom? I'd say that was a strange name for a town, but we have some odd ones too...in Amish country, believe it or not! Blue Ball, Virginville and Intercourse are only 3 of about 12...hey, I didn't name them!
Not kissing the toads was a very good idea...a tiny bit risky and it might have turned out to be someone less than Pierce Brosnan...perhaps a Prince Charles?? .
The oddest creature I've ever seen was in South Carolina (but not North Carolina!) We were on the beach, just relaxing, when I saw this "thing" out of the corner of my eye. I swear...it was walking sideways towards me and had eyes like the headlights of an old Model "T" Ford. And it was quite large! I thought someone was playing a joke on us with a puppet, or perhaps one of Jim Hensen's muppets had gotten loose, but it turned out to be a real creature. I think they called it a sand crab or something. Anyway, when I realized it was real, I sort of levitated back to the house, locked the door, and swore I'd never go outside until it was time to head North again! Now that would make an interesting solid!
Your driving experience sounds wonderful...there's no where around here to even attempt anything so fun! That's what I consider growing up the fun way!
Thanks for the explanation...I can picture it!

I am sad to say that Cinderella never had the chance to try on the Magic Slipper and that may mean your Coach did not take her to the Ball!
Prince Charming is still messing around with the Ugly Sisters, and Bull-frog is waiting patiently for that spell-binding kiss!
Lisa never had a chance to wear her Fantasy Shoes
but is daydreaming about the day when she will receive her solid invitation.
Meanwhile, Cinderella is below stairs preparing Pumpkin Soup and waiting for the moment when another Prince Charming will set her free.
Watch this space!

Meanwhile, the prince is still on the look out for that someone for his coach!
So is there someone out there who can end this fairy tale soon ??????

But, you and I know full well that she has to kiss alot of frogs before the real Prince Charming appears. Meanwhile, this Prince is not to be. He prefers the Ugly Sisters and does not realise what fate has in store! No beautiful Princess to share his life and no solid dreams for the future!
But Sandra, we know there is a silver lining and I have heard through a Fairy Godmother, that another suitor will soon be on hand. It may take a while, as Solids are so much in demand before the Xmas Season. But, with a little patience all will be revealed and, Lisa will go to the Ball wearing her fantasy shoes and dress. Jack will be beside her (without his beanstalk), and all of us will rejoice in a solid reunion forever after!
Watch this space!

I think you have seen "Into the Woods" as you are now mixing the fairytales! However - I enjoy it, and as usual I am laughing until my sides and cheeks ache! Thanks for the fun!

Lisa may have her Fantasy Shoes and Jack, his beanstalk, but without Jack and his Beanstalk, Lisa would not have her solid(s) home, and the Magic Slipper would still not have surfaced to enable Cinderella to find her special Prince.

She can be reached at 1-888-731-6024, but they'll be gone fast....
Good luck to anyone who was looking for it!
