The weekend was a lot of fun. I got a call from my niece on Friday afternoon asking if I would like to go to dinner and then bowling with my brother and nieces. I jumped at the chance! We had a lot of fun bowling and it was fun to spend the evening with them. It is heartwarming to see what a great Dad my little brother is.
They have a dog, Shayna, the Golden Doodle. She is the sweetest little doggie. She thinks she is still a puppy and jumps to sit in your lap when you sit down. I was playing with her and rough housing with her when her paw slipped and she clocked me! I saw stars and thought she bloodied my nose! Thankfully, she didn’t, but she did leave a scratch on the tip of my nose!
In the mail was this lovely card from a 1:1 trade with Shanda Panda who I met through flickr. I love the dictionary behind it, the real leaf on top of it and the text at the bottom.
I also received this lovely ATC from Di Thompson for the birthday ATC swap. It is a bit late, but there was a lovely apology sticker from the Royal Mail people letting me know why. Gotta love the Brits! You get a sticker with an explanation. With the US Postal Service, you get nothing. Sometimes they send you the destroyed item in a plastic bag, sometimes you get the item very, very late, and sometimes not at all! You never get a sticker for an apology!
I think she painted it, but in this pic it looks like stitching. I love the tube beads she added, too.
