OMG, I can't believe it!!!! I did it!!! I restored my very first pony!!!!! AGHHHGGGGGGG!!!! 😻😻😻😻😻
I rerooted her hair and tail, and after A LOT of effort and cleaning technics I was finally able to get rid of the pink pen stains on her body and face!!! Ahhhhhh!!!! After more than 10 years wishing to send her to someone to be restored I was able to restore her myself and I'm just so proud of myself right now, I almost cried in happiness 😿
This pony is just so special to me! The one that I'll keep together with me until the end, the one that's keeping me company for more than 22 years already ❤❤❤❤

So I asked her, why Scyther?
"I chose this toy because my son really likes this Pokémon and so do I.
My family has a strong influence in my photography. They’re the fuel that keeps me going and I’m really grateful for that." #HoldMyToys
STAR WARS COUNTDOWN (Day 50) -
The nice thing about Gran Week only being 6 days is that this week’s theme can be longer. It’s also the 50th day of the countdown! If today wasn’t special enough, it’s also the start of the week celebrating my all-time favourite Star Wars character!
Welcome to Zuckuss Week!
There’s a few reasons why Zuckuss is my favourite. The obvious being that he just looks cool, and weird. But it owes a lot to his story ‘Of Possible Futures’ in the book ‘Tales of the Bounty Hunters’, by M. Shayne Bell. I read it during a family vacation one summer, and it must’ve been the right story at the right time, because it really affected me.
Shortly into the search for Han Solo, Zuckuss and his droid partner 4-LOM encounter stranded Rebel survivors from the Battle of Hoth. Zuckuss, who is able to foresee possible futures, believes that Solo will be found at the Rebels, rendezvous point and rescues the stranded Rebels as a means of infiltrating their base and capturing him.
Zuckuss is a Gand an breathes ammonia instead of oxygen, and his lungs were badly injured on a previous mission when a target tore his mask off, causing him to take three breaths of oxygen. Zuckuss is hoping collecting the bounty on Solo will give him enough credits to have new lungs cloned.
When his health deteriorates while transporting the Hoth survivors, he is cared for by the Rebels, and ultimately rewarded for saving them with the new lungs he so desperately needed. He ends up joining the Rebels for a while, before again going his own way.
I remember being so moved by this story I immediately read it again while on vacation. I rarely read anything twice, let alone consecutively. As a lifelong asthmatic who had some serious issues with it as a kid, I really felt for Zuckuss, and I loved that he joined the Rebels.
The story isn’t official canon anymore, but it still is for me! It had too much of an effect on me to discard it. #starwarscountdown#starwars#zuckuss#talesofthebountyhunters#ofpossiblefutures#gand#hasbro#poft2#90stoys#zuckussweek#starwarscountdownweeks#bountyhunter#itszuckuss
