usually, jane and i find it our duty to bark at the deliver dudes – i mean really…they are entering our space, depositing ‘unknown items’ and skedaddling off… but this week, i think i might be changing my mind about these folks…

tuesday, we go for our acupuncture appointments at 5:30 PM..kinda late, but we know sometimes it’s not always about ‘our schedule’…so, when we get back, oh my, the UPS dude has left another item on the front porch…but, wait..it’s addressed to ME!!!  a package for ME!!! geesh….  so, when charon finally got it open, it was amazing – my friend ginger and her folk in the ‘land of lincoln’ (all hail the chief) had sent treats for me and jane and also ‘treats’ for don and charon.

 

 

well, you’d think it was christmas for don…being a transplanted illini (is that a kind of bush???) stuck in all this tennessee orange, he was beside himself with the ‘big i’ and ‘cubs’ goodies – then he started talking about trying them out with golf…i don’t get what a ‘canadian club’ is, but he said it would work perfectly in one of the glasses… 

anyway, the treats for us girls were mega-delicious  pup corn.  i gobble so fast, that charon couldn’t get a picture of me inhaling my piece, but jane is a more ‘dainty’ eater, geesh…

so, what a tuesday – but that’s not all!!!!  wednesday rolls around, i’m napping in the library, keeping one eye on the traffic going by.  geesh again, here come the mailman…and he’s leaving a parcel…ugh….but, what, AGAIN????  this one is addressed to ME AND JANE.  oh my, i think we’ve doubled up!!!!  so, charon took way too long to open the package, but how wonderful – we got quilts from Granny Kay in Texas!!!! 

(Granny Kay is comet’s grandma, who makes puppy blankets – seems charon and granny kay worked out some kind of ‘artists’ barter’ and they exchanged socks for quilts… geesh, this is great, wonder what other great stuff she could barter for with those socks…hum, i need to put my thinking cap on…)  but, i’m rambling…

so, charon took the quilts out of the box, and we were all amazed.  jane’s is so dainty and lacy, just perfect for the little princess that she is.  here she is resting next to me:

and my quilt – well, let’s just say granny kay hit one out of the park.  it’s navy with pink polka dots, and pink squares.  my quilt is girlie and brave at the same time.  the pink reminds me that charon and i are both kicking cancer’s butt.  geesh, am i a good looking girl or what??

well, all i can say is thank you so much to ginger, annie, brian and granny kay.  you guys sure know how to make a girl feel special!!  and thanks to comet for brokering the barter, you are one smart cookie yourself!!  geesh, i sure am the lucky one!!!
