    ...a taming tale!

    'Twas the night before Christmas, and all through the realm
    the tamers were gatherin' with Pros at the helm.
    The tamers were ready, with all of them of them there,
    To sweet-talk some beasties with magic and flair.

    The Girl Scouts were nestled all snug in their beds,
    Dreaming of SuperKen, that tall, dashing red.
    Mama Faith wore no 'kerchief, but a mana regen cap,
    And stayed home for the night, for she had gifts to wrap.

    Then all of a sudden there rose such a clatter,
    I ran to the moongate to see what was the matter.
    And Sluggy and Handalf became silenced too,
    As we gazed at the spectacle in the Ole Moonglow Zoo.

    The light of the gate on the new-fallen snow
    Twinkled and shimmered with a magical glow.
    And from it came singing that tamer/mage James,
    Dragging behind him an enormous........drake train.

    Suddenly more tamers arrived through more gates,
    With dragons and bears and unicorns I hate!
    More swiftly than eagles they came and they went,
    'Twas looking like another Taming Hour well-spent.

    Now Brega! Now 'Trina!
    James and Deb too!
    Kat and Taliesin,
    the [RAGE] sister crew!

    So let me exclaim on this fair, taming night,
    Glad Yule one and all!
    (And don't let your beasts bite!)

    Total point earned : 52,456 pts.

    Random Prize # - 11, 444, 567
    Winner - James (Who then kindly passed his prize to Elissa [RAGE])

    James (MT)
    Kat MacBroeden (DWN)
    Elissa [RAGE]
    Katrina Cole (T'nA)
    Dante Lamperouge (BRPA)
    Cairn Brega (TAO)


    The evening began with just four tamers and some really mean drakes, but as the hour wore on, we gained a few more people. By the end of the night 53,000 pts were earned, a very impressive number for a small group!

    As always we thank you for the time and animals you donate to the Baja Moongow Zoo, it allows our shard to maintain the Silver Steed.

    No taming hour next week! And a Blessed holiday to all!

    Pros never ceases to amaze me with her wit and ability to rhyme. The dedication that she and others have shown to keep that zoo going is commendable. As to having "too" much time on their hands? What better way to spend a relaxing Sunday evening if you're ingame. :cheerleader:
