Monday

Lookie, lookie...


... at who showed up the other day!


The nice man driving the van gave me this....


I took a moment to sit down so I could rip open the envelope using that handy little tear strip... My my... imagine that, I just so happened to be wearing my "nice clothes" and my hair was "done". Hmmm ... what's that? Lipstick??? ;-)

I called over a buddy to watch as I unwrapped the contents of the envelope...

Inside we found an advanced copy of this...

So... it wasn't all a dream....

I can hold it in my hands...

And flip through the pretty pages...


And see all the lovely colours...


And bore the heck out of Skeeter...

Yipppeeee!
