Hi! Hi! Happy Monday, everybuddy! Did you have a very good weekend? I hope so!
Okay, now remember, girls – you have ONE WEEK to sends me and Preacher Puddles your Respond So Very Prontos for THE bachelorette pawty event of the season.
Now, I’m gonna turn the bloggie over to Cap’n Ripley cuz he has a special message for Madi. (Oh, gosh…I just can’t stand it! He’s SO smitten!)
Dearest Madi of Me Heart,
Yer missive arrived by post Monday last. When me mum presented it to me, I thought me heart would stop and I set about to open it.
But alas! Despite me many abilities, I was unable to open yer letter due to the cursed lack of opposable thumbs. Right away, I ordered me mum to put her digits to good use. Arrrrr! Yer card was the most beautiful sight I ever beheld. The way ye directed yer ma to make the card – why, I am agog at yer talents.
And yer words – yer melodious words – were like a salve to me soul.
Knowin’ that I was touching something that you had touched with yer delicate paw – avast! Twas almost more than me poor heart could take.
Yer card alone woulda been enough to keep me afloat fer a hundred years. But no, yer kindness did not stop with that. When I saw what you had included as a gift fer me, I was overcome with a wave of love greater than any wave stirred by the ocean.
Lastly, I must extend my sincerest apologies fer takin’ so long to properly thank ye for me card and gift. Ye see, they mean the whole ocean to me and I have been somewhat, er, protective of them.
Thanks to you, me darlin’, from the bottom of me humble heart. And please extend me thanks to yer lovely ma, too. I will treasure it to the end of me days.
