Oscar is a carpenter.  He had a bit of a wild youth, hence the tattoos all over his body.  Oscar specializes in tree forts because he is a really great climber.  He doesn't believe in ladders, but he's super strong and agile, so there isn't really a need for them.  Kids in the past have thought he was part man, part bear because of his scruffy beard and burly ways.  One boy, Tommy, overheard him accidentally hammer his thumb instead of a nail.  He screamed really high-pitched, like a kettle when the water is boiling, or like a girl-singer when she is reaching a really high-note.  Tommy thought it was funny, but not as funny as his completed tree fort was cool.

I got the job!  I just need to accept.  I think it will be great.  On my interview, I got a little tour of the facility, and there is so much creativity that takes place there---I am excited and slightly nervous.  I will only be working 4 hours a day and I still plan to keep up the same pace with the Pillow Monsters.  I think it's possible as long as I spend less time lolly-gagging on the internet. Thanks again for all your support!  

has anyone else been craving pie?  I want as apple one something fierce! 

By the way, Oscar is here waiting for a warm couch!
