Dear mom, (Leigh to most of you)
I know how you worry when I travel, so I'm just checking in to let you know I arrived safe and sound.
First thing when I got here, Miss Keetha undid my seat belt and got me out of my little deluxe nutcrackermobile.
Then she smothered my face with kisses. If you'd have warned me about that part, I never woulda come here! Is she a little weird or what?
Next it was off to meet and greet:
First I met the BIG CHEESE Nutcracker King. I felt a little small and intimidated next to him. He never even cracked (oh, that's a pun!) a smile!
But when I met these little princes I felt pretty big in my britches!!!
Miss Keetha has a whole Toyland here, mom! She says these are for the grans. I just have one question, what are "grans?"
Hey, is it bad luck to have a black cat sniff your head? This one's name is Gomer and I wasn't sure that I liked him much!
But this Christmas Cat was real sweet and quiet. She didn't make one sound.
I think maybe Miss Keetha's running a game preserve around here!!! Just look at all these black bears. One of them, who called herself Brunhilda, was pretty bossy!!
Do you have ANY IDEA how cold it is up here, mom???? I'm NOT in Alabama any more, Toto!!!
You did not PREPARE me for standing around in the snow! You think this little coat you gave me is warm enough for this????? Better think again!
Miss Keetha saw that I was freezing my Alabama blood to death out in the snow bank, so she brought me in and let me warm up wrapped in her leopard snuggie. She even let me have the remote and the "Turd Furgeson" pillow for my head.
Then it was time for me to take my place on guard duty in the front hall. Miss Keetha said, "Yo Bob! Break's over!" and she made me go to work.
And that's where I still am. Can you see me, mom??? Third up from the bottom. I'll try my hardest, in my new home, to make you proud!!!
