I look into your future now, and what do I see…?



Happiness is being safe with your friends.

Yay! We’ve heard from Snook now that he’s arrived in Michigan. He says he’s fine and happy (although a little jet-lagged) and has already been united with Isaac and he really likes him and he’s going to be happy to work with him to help turn his frowns upside-down.

We’re waiting on a photo of Snook in his new location. For now, here he is last week saying farewell before heading for the airport – that’s him at the back, sitting in between Snerk and Ralph. It was an emotional meeting, but now as he embarks on his mission to help a most-deserving young man, the emotions are all new.

“I’m very excited,” he said, “to see what I can do to help. I’ve trained hard, and that’s just great, but now it’s time to put it all to work.”

Stay tuned.

Have you any idea how difficult it has been to get the typist to do his bit for this cause? Between some sort of illness (they never told us what it was) and the acquisition of a new pup (see rustyiam), and all the maintenance work he’s had to do here and at the ol’ community hall, it’s been worth our lives to get him to stand up to this particular responsibility.

I know, why on earth can’t I learn how to type? Wouldn’t that solve all my problems? Well, sure, but I have the fattest thumbs you’ve ever seen and try as I might I just can’t wrap them around the keyboard. Trying to get one of the smaller critters to type is equally vexing – I have to dictate one letter at a time so it takes all day! No, UJ is the best bet for getting something done. Today I managed to corner him and when we all jumped on him and held him down he agreed at last to be a bit more reliable with this. This is our only way of communicating with the outside world! If he’s not there for us, we’re basically stumped.

So I look forward to being a bit more “in your face” than I have been. I hope there’s someone out there, listening to us. We have a very important message to impart.

More very soon. Right UJ?
