Dearest Dutchess,

I was wondering if you received your TICKET TO THE NOWHERE SHOW and the strike probably has stopped progress!!!!

I did exactly the same thing yesterday!! All my cards and packaged are out and it is such a nice feeling to think about my friends and family so far away opening them! And on time this year!!
Beautiful painting!
Blessings to you and your family at Hilltop!
PS Do you remember Karen Carpenter singing this song...? She had such a lovely voice - I've missed her talent through the years.

De post komt volgende week aan de beurt.

AND GOEDEMORGEN mijn vriendin!!! Oh my sweet, winner or not, Miss M. shall receive a divine little gift ANYWAY 'cause she is....shhhhhhhhh......our favorite......but Tea Rat just can't make up his mind now since Bebe is all grown up! SO many lovely mice, so little time says he!

You are the star beyond the pond, and the star that seems light years away from me....I can only have faith and hope that I will see you one day to enjoy the LOVE of friends in a kingdom that will never, ever end, and a place where we can speak to the animals.....big hugs my dear. OH! Think of us today dear; Ruben has to go into the emergency to get checked for an unusual swelling on his nose. The nurse over the phone said to come in immediately but we are so SNOWED IN, it is going to take us hours to get dug out!

Please think of us? Your devoted vriendin, Nita

Oh, and if you get the "ticket" to the show in Nowhere, excuse me if the Dutch is not quite grammatically correct; I used GOOGLE translator to translate my idea! teeeheee....
