Hi. It's me, Raj, the pretty one. I don't mind being called pretty. But Edwin does, so don't ever do it. (Mom told me to say that.)
Today has been an EPIC Newsday!
1. The SUN came out.
2. YumYum taught us how to jump so now both Taj and I take turns perched high atop our "Pigloo" and view the world through new eyes. We play "King of the Castle" and Taj sits up there more than I do, but we are learning a lot from YumYum.
We think there are things mom does not want us to learn from YumYum and we hope to learn those, too.
3. We GET TO MOVE MAY 1ST!!!! At least mom and us and a futon. The rest of the stuff not packed enough, so it may not make it until the following weekend but WHO CARES?! WE HAPPY, HAPPY, EVEN MOM, TOO who had the saddest birthday ever yesterday but today is Earth Day and the Sun is Out and We Get To Move in on May 1 AND...
4. Our neighbor and award-winning novelist, Janey Bennett, took mom to the Lion's Club this morning and they outfitted mom
with a little, itty-bitty (but heavy, 35 lb.) wheelchair and took the "foot part" off so she can kind of run/shuffle in it without
worrying about falling down anymore! It's pretty hard to get it in and out of the car, but we may be able to purchase a lighter
one, soon. So,
5. SUN OUT!
WE HIGH ON PIGLOO PERCH!
WE MOVE MAY 1ST!
MOM CAN RUN AROUND IN HER WHEELCHAIR NOW WITHOUT FALLING!
SHE REALLY WANTS ONE OF THOSE WAY COOL, TRICKED-OUT BIKES THE PARALYMPICS ATHLETES RIDE...
BUT WE IS ALL HAPPY
WITH WHAT WE HAVE:
OUR INDEPENDENCE, A NEW PLACE IN THE SUN, AND A VIEW FROM ATOP OUR PIGLOO!
THIS IS TOO BEAUTIFUL DAY TO LET IT GET AWAY.
the pretty one, Raj Mahal
