A couple of faces have come and gone since the first of the year. First there was Grace.
Grace came to be in stages. First there was the head,
then the body. I quickly snapped this photo when I was passing by my work table one day. When I came across it, I found it amusing. I don’t know why. Perhaps I am easily amused.
Here’s Grace before she went on her journey westward. I rather like to think she was saying “Are you done yet? Can I please go now?”
Next there was Otis. Otis was requested as Sebastian’s country cousin. He sports a gingham patch on his tummy and wears a little tiny basket charm necklace.
I noticed in this photo that Sebastian seems to be giving him advice before he headed out to his new home. “And that there is the camera. Always look at the camera when you’re having your picture taken. And sit up nice and straight – no slouchies. Do as I say not as I do. You’ll be fine Otis – just keep the “y’alls” and the “yeps” to a minimum.”
“Remember, we’re family and families stick together. If you ever need anything, just give me a call. I know exactly how to brush crumbs under the rug and how to hide chocolate papers.”
That’s Sebastian for you. Giving invaluable advice to newbies.
