JB, Bear & Chester!

They say everything is bigger in Texas and I think that's true! When my mom was in Texas last year for her niece's wedding she brought back some jelly beans that were bigger than some of the rocks we've received for the coffee table. Well, Jelly Bean, aka JB, along with Bear and Chester sent a Texas-sized package to me this week!
Since JB and Chester are inside cats, their brother Bear agreed to go on the rock hunt with their mom.
This is the first rock bear picked out for me but his mom told him it was way too big for the table and that he needed to keep looking.And so he did. After much searching, sniffing, digging and wandering, Bear found a bunch of rocks and a horseshoe!Chester was first to check the loot Bear came home with but final approval was the job of JB.
After much deliberation, JB gave the 3 middle rocks her stamp of approval so her mom packed them up and sent them off on their 1,620 mile journey to New York to become part of our table. When the package arrived it felt VERY heavy. Mom opened it up for us and read us the note.
The note said they had fun looking for the rocks and that they'd sent along some treats with the rocks. What? Wait? TREATS????? Woo hoo!!!!!!!!!!!
Look at that! Packages for all of us! Mom put the separate packages out and while she was trying to get Ziggy and me back on the porch, Libby opened hers all on her own. Something smelled irresistable to her. She was INTENT on getting to it. She let Tommy have a smell but re-claimed it fast.

Libby loved the little pillow. When I asked mom what was in it she said "cat crack." Huh? When I asked what that was she explained that it was stuffed with catnip. Evidently cats go crazy for catnip. Notice the look of pure bliss on Libby's face.
Ziggy was very cooperative, as always. He posed perfectly for mom with a big smile on his face, waiting patiently for the ok to open his present.I, on the other hand, refused to look at the camera so mom had to give up and take a picture of me surveying my gift! Wow!!!!
Ziggy and I each got a great toy plus delicious Busy Rollhides sized perfectly for each of us. While Libby and Tommy were enjoying their treats and toys, Ziggy and I each got to have one of our Rollhides.
I like to run around my treats and throw them around awhile before I settle down to eat them. When I did calm down I was totally lost in the delicious flavor and didn't even notice or care that mom was taking my picture.
The rocks have found their new home in our coffee table. Thank you JB, Bear and Chester for your additions to the table and for all the wonderful presents too!

Pedro - you're right, everything is bigger in TEXAS. My mom's bff is a Texan - they've been bff's since they were in boarding school and that is a long, long time - Anyway - back to Texas and the rocks...those are some great rocks you got, even if you didn't get the Texas sized one - and those gifts were really special.....I could send you some Tennessee rocks if you tell me where to send them.

Hi Pedro,

Nice rocks and even better gifts. I wish mom had thought to send you some tasty gifts along with the useless rocks.

Wags & wiggles,

Sweepy said...

Woof, Pedro!
Just passed by to see if our rocks got to you. Hmmm, not yet. Well, from our place San Pedro to Pedro might be a loooooong way.

We all chose one from our collection! The Post Office did not like the rocks in the mail but Keeper found a better way of sending them.

Hope they get to you in 2009!
