Recipient Seeks Bond Giver

I posted recently on our private blog about Zelda that we had received a gift bond for her. No one has come forward to claim it. So I thought I'd ask on this blog if any of you sent a bond to Zelda. We'd like to properly thank you.

If you're the giver, please send me a private e-mail with the last four digits of your social security number (which appear on the bond).

Thanks in advance!

New Bunnies

Nothing beats new bunnies.

Bunny slippers, that is. They arrived today from Runaway Rabbit. I was so excited to rip open the package and walk around in them for a little while this afternoon.

As I put on my slippers this evening, I realized that I have been wearing bunny slippers for 15-1/2 years. I have my friends Tammy and Denise to thank for giving me my first pair following a surgery I had. I fell in love with them - the slippers, that is. Oh, and I just got a warm fuzzy feeling remembering the nightgown they gave me to go with the slippers. It said "Princess of Quite Alot." Gosh, I loved that nightgown.

But I digress. Tonight, I put on my jammies and then slipped on my new bunnies. I was so excited that I had to take a picture. Check these out:

Beautiful, huh? I just can't figure out why it took me so long to order a new pair. My old pair was so very sad. The feet were completely flattened and the dirt wouldn't even wash out anymore. They were so sad that I had to take a picture to share.

The bummer is that this picture doesn't capture the really flattened, dirty nature of these slippers. However, I had already happily thrown them in the garbage by the time I downloaded the pictures. So, it was too late to take any additional pictures.

Maybe I should be relieved that I can't embarrass myself further by showing you just how awful my everyday slippers were. Yes, I wore these every day. Every day for the past two - or is it three? - years.

I've just promised myself to buy the replacement pair to these fluffy new bunnies a little sooner next time. I promise.
