Almost a year ago, I got an email from Lita, who wanted to send something for the cats. I gave her my mailing address, and she sent it, but it never arrived. We figured it’d gotten lost along the way.
When I was checking the PO Box at the end of December, I got a notice that there was a package too large for the box. I went and stood in line, and they handed over this package from Australia.
I looked at it, and saw that the date “2/12/10” was written on it in black marker, which is what they do when they leave a notice in your PO Box. I pointed it out to the postal worker, and she basically shrugged and offered that perhaps it had been misboxed.
So it’s a mystery where it’s been all these months, but the important thing is that it arrived!
And what, you may be wondering, did the package contain?
All the kittens are quite fond of these cubes. Reacher LOVES to get in and roll around in them, and in the evening when it’s time for the Bradys to go to sleep, we have to wrestle Reacher out of the cube to remove him from the room. (There’s a second package of the cubes, which I believe I’ll set up outside the kitten room so Reacher can cube-sit to his heart’s content.)
So Lita, Sam, Niles and Zorro, thank you so much for the gift. It’s been very much appreciated, as you can see!
Today’s movies are Brady-centric, of course. The first is Peter Brady, playing with a toy he found.
The second is from back in November, shortly after we got the Bradys. They’re so TINY! It ends kind of abruptly, sorry about that – a talented videographer I am not.
