If ever I had a spirit "animal" it would be a crab. Not technically an animal I know, but it is still the creature I most feel an affinity to.
Hubby found Charlie gray and dull at Lowes. He helped the girls paint him, and they were so excited to surprise me with him.
Charlie and I get along great in the shop together. I don't bother him, and he doesn't bother me.
And he's great at guarding the mill ;-).
