The Mouse's Birthday

See this beautiful baby, chewing on the foot of the Puffalump mouse?

Well, a year or so after this picture was taken, we learned that the mouse's name is Ning Ning. Great name for a blue eyed mouse, right? Anyway, he's been hauled around everywhere, had many baths, been forced to eat stuffing while that baby was not home, and been a faithful, loyal friend.

Today the baby is 21 years old. And so we celebrate Ning Ning the mouse's birthday at the same time.


Poor Ning Ning has been so well loved that about a decade ago, I had to make him a new "suit", by cutting up one of Dad's worn out Oxford cloth dress shirts. Well, at Easter I learned that Ning Ning's suit was also worn out. So, for Ning Ning's birthday, he's getting a new suit.

Of course, Ning Ning and his girl are taking a summer class in West Virginia, so he's not here to try on his new suit. But I think he'll be thrilled when they get here tonight, don't you?

Have a nice weekend, everyone. Try to stay cool!

How nice that Ning Ning is getting such a lovely birthday gift. I wish my Mom had kept my teddy.

Ok, you made me tear up a little. I love looking at pictures of your children when they were babies, they are all so beautiful, then and now. I am so glad Ning Ning has survived! Ning Ning is so luck to have a personal tailor!

OH - our girls must be twins! The Princess had a puffalump too! When we was in headstart a dog stole it and ran off - the entire school teachers, all the kids the bus driver everyone chased the dog to get Puffy back. On year she even dressed up as Puffy for Halloween. I've never thought to make him clothes - although I have fed him stuffing and done many "surgeries". g

What a lovely little gift you have made for Ning Ning. And how nice that the "friendship" has lived on. I suspect that our Sweet Girl will still have her Bear Blanket when she is 21.

This will not truly have success, I consider so.
