A Very Good Mail Day Indeed

Upon arrival home today I found in my mailbox a present for Lucy.

This is a new mousie that the very wonderful Keri made to replace the mouse (also made by Keri) whose tail Lucy bit off. Keri’s kitty Slick carefully tested it for Lucy before it was sent off. (If you click on the link above, you can see proof of this.)

Keri included a gift for me too! A wrist tag:

Don’t you love the fabric?

Thank you Keri and Slick — we love you!

There was something else waiting for me when I got home — a large heavy box.
