“A wise old owl lived in an oak;
The more he saw the less he spoke;
The less he spoke the more he heard...
Why can't we all be like that bird?”

Knock, knock!! Anybody in here? I have an echo this morning. While I'm typing this up, I guess all are safely tucked in their beds asnooze. Well, instead of pounding and banging away on pots and pans to disturb you, I won't even consider yelling at the top of my lungs either. I'll just politely say:

LOOK WHAT I GOT IN THE MAIL!!!


shhhh-h-h-h-h-h!!
Sorry, but I got excited.

A while ago, I left a comment in Pea's Polka Dot Giveaway, and she drew my name. Yesterday afternoon the package came. Well, it came to us via our neighbor's ....he signed for it, and then when we came home from going out to lunch, he brought it out and handed it over to me when I was at the mailbox getting the rest of the mail. What fun lay in store. Some really cool dotty things. Fun things....





The huge box containing all the polkie-dot goodies!! "Open, Open, Open!!!"









Lovely card inside!!








Plates, glasses, scissors, socks, notepad, coasters, shoestrings
And then....







....yep, you guessed it!
The cats couldn't leave well enough alone...they both hear paper and see boxes...in they go!!! They both wanted to share this KODAK blog moment!



Pea? I thank you from the bottom of my heart. They WILL come into use soon. All such a fun, fantastic idea for a giveaway. I thank you, and the kitties thank you!!!

FLASH 55



He dons his cape!
There's only one matchless hero in this act...
Superik to the rescue---look out below!

The world citizens'll witness his heroism today.
Below, the enemy awaits in hiding...
Mission Impossible becomes MISSION-POSSIBLE!!

Like the caped crusader, my young son, back in time, jumps from his bed, crawls under to save all; PLAY.

  12. When they were little, my kids would build forts and wear capes out of towels and play in the boxes before the cats could.

    Love this 55!

  13. I wonder why little boys ( and not so girls) do like capes so much... I usualy find towels around the house which have been used with that purpose...
    Nice 55
