A Package to ColbornePosted: July 19, 2011
Giuseppe demands to be shipped with the package to Colborne.
One of the things Miss Daisy’s mom and I were discussing was a piece of artwork and a couple of copies of Great Rescues which have been on the easel waiting to be packed until I could determine the best method of shipment.
Yesterday was the day for the package to be packed and on its way and I had to sneak it past Giuseppe, who was still waiting for his letter from his love.
But he caught up with me when the package was completely closed and he sat on it, insisting to be allowed inside! I tried to tell him that he couldn’t go running off to see a lady he’d only met on the internet, he knew very little about her, he had no passport to get into Canada and, besides that, he’d never traveled!
I simply had to distract him with other thoughts until he took a nap with his mom. I hurriedly printed out the labels, put them in the international plastic sleeve and slipped out to my car. Like magic, when I came back, there was the letter, and the rest is history…
But Giuseppe and I have an idea, now that we’ve seen Miss Daisy and understand that Colborne has no stores to supply kitties with toys. He’s talked to his siblings, his mom and the tortie girls, and all agree that they have plenty enough toys to share. He’ll spend a few days selecting a few toys to send—he’d send the moon if he could, but his mom advises him that a lady likes to be courted, and sending several packages is better than sending one—and his brothers and sisters have agreed they’ll help him choose.
Shhhh! Don’t let Miss Daisy know!
