A while back, Sue and her 10 dogs organized a Winter Solstice Swap, and Thor and I decided to participate. Was it hard to convince Thor to participate? No, of course not. He sleeps through the preparations and gets the reward; life is good in Thor World.
So, last week we got a package from a Secret Santa in a mysterious, snowy place called "Chicago". It must be snowy, since Santa lives there, right?
The boys were all about helping Thor open his present. I was all about not letting Thor eat the wrapping paper. I lost.
Our presents came from a guy named "Mr. Pip"! Upon investigation, we discovered that he is a small dude, so it must have been very hard for him to drag home this giant present, suitable for someone Thor's size. I think Mr. Pip said to his mom, "OK, here's the scoop. We need something as big as me for that monster!"
It's a jute toy which appears to have a bottle or something inside it for stability. Thor liked it!
Mr. Pip's person, Kim, made me this beautiful scarf, hand dyed, hand hemmed and machine washable! She may not have a giant slobber-bombing resident in her house, but she evidently understands them!
Look at how pretty it is!
When I gave Thor back his present after photographing it, he carefully placed it with his flat fox, and his few remaining scraps of wrapping paper. A guy has to keep his stuff in order!
So, thank you Kim and Pip for these goodies, and thanks to Sue for organizing this swap!
