I was a bit cross with The Secretary because she went out just when a Big Storm was coming. I don’t like Big Storms!
But when she came home she was carrying …a parcel!
And inside the parcel… another parcel!
Sporran and I were getting excited. “Open it!” we said.
A box! With black ribbon to play with!
We played with the ribbon and then we realised that The Secretary was still fiddling with the parcel!
It’s a bird! (He has a tag, like we wear, which says his name is Jim.)
And a card which reads:
Jim was made by Ann Wood, a lovely lady in Brooklyn and he is my prize from a contest which Ann held at her blog.
I think Jim is very handsome. Sporran agrees. Of course, we are not allowed to play with Jim. The secretary says we might play a “bit too rough” so she will put him in the cabinet with her books.
Spoil-sport! That’s what she is! But we’d like to say a very big thank you to Ann for sending Jim all the way to Australia. We’ll make sure The Secretary takes good care of him.
Yes. We certainly wouldn’t let her leave him outside in a Big Storm!
