I have been such a good girl.
The sweat was beading on my brow.
My fingers were twitching.
My eyes kept returning to that spot
on the dining room table where
Lesley's package was sitting, waiting.
It had arrived on Friday
and she had emailed to say that she expected me to be
disciplined and not open it until this morning.
Now if she hadn't emailed I could have got away with it
but she had so
I had to behave.
At last, this morning, having dropped
off grunting son at his Saturday job,
I could open up my bundle of treasure.
And what treasure it all is.
Lesley researched this subject extensively
and finally settled on a
Her postcard is of Belle Starr
(don't you love her cartoon speech bubble "Yee Ha!"?).
Lesley also made a book for me.
It's of Gun 'toting Women.
There are lots more pages but this will give you the idea.........
Lesley very kindly enclosed a Ladybird book
(I am a huge fan of Ladybird books)
'The Story of the Cowboy'.
I haven't got this one and it is a real treat..........
.........as is my wonderfully camp sheriff's badge!
Finally, she also enclosed a super
stand up of
(she went and got her gun).
Funnily enough, when I took the photo of this
my camera detected that she had blinked!
thank you so much for all the time
and effort you have put into my theme.
Everything that you have created is superb.
