Thank you Tashila & Tamana.... it's good to hear everyones thoughts and different impressions.
*Tam: I can laugh about it now, but unlike you, as a little girl I was afraid of most carosels and I really didn't like to ride them.
*(my poor Dad
.... he'd have to search for a "nice" horse, lol, or I'd be really frightened and screaming "nooooooo" at the top of my lungs).
I don't know what it was
.... perhaps because some of the lions & tigers & horses were all wild-eyed and baring their teeth, they seemed to have an underlying sinister element in my young mind..... as if, when I turned my back, the animals would all animate at once, leap off the platform and start chasing after everyone. **Helloooooo Stephen King, lol!
Now, I am working on a large tiger for the series....
and "thanks mucho" for looking.
