A Surprise For Us!

Greetings to all!  It's me, Maggie.  So there we were last week, tethered to Mom, enduring Day 792 of the bathroom remodel, when one of the guys came into the kitchen and announced that our mom had a package.  As he handed it to her, we got VERY interested and thought it just might be for us!

It was from some friends!  Yeah!  So last week, a long-time friend of Mom's and his wife (let's call them Mr. and Mrs. A) were coming through our area.  They came to the house so we could all meet!  It was so nice of them to stop to see us -- we had a great visit!

As if the visit wasn't enough of a treat ... he followed up with this surprise!  A package!  And not just any package ... it was for Cam and me!

"How nice is this?!?  Our favorite treats and some Christmas scarves!!!"
"This is SO very thoughtful!!!"

The scarves are very festive and the treats!  They aren't just any treats -- they're our very favorite!  I had to wonder ... how did he know they're our faves?!?  I think the answer is in this note he enclosed. Check it out:

Close up!

Great Dane in the morning!  He's a close friend of Santa's?!?!  That's got to be how he knew!!!

"Wait ... I was good while they were here, wasn't I?"
"I'm pretty sure I was ..." 

I'm sure he'll send a good report in on Cam -- I mean he refers to her as "most saintly".  And I know I showed them a good time!  That's gotta count for something, right?!!?

Thank you for the wonderful surprise, Mr. and Mrs. A!!!  We enjoyed meeting you both so very much.  We're already enjoying the treats - and we'll be sure to pose VERY sweetly in the scarves nearer to Christmastime!  And if you're ever in Kansas again, our door is always open!  Figuratively speaking, of course!  I mean ... we ARE Siberian Huskies!

Yours sincerely,
Margaret Thatcher
