I belong to a postcard exchange group called postcrossing.com. Yesterday I pulled the name of a man who asked people, if they felt like it, to send a card to his nephew who has Down's Syndrome. The nephew can't read or write but loves the pictures and his family reads cards to him and he keeps them all. I sent him a card of two horses -- it is a photo my mother took and I make cards of her photos to send around the world. I think he will enjoy it.
Meanwhile, Chayra the hamster has morphed into some sort of muffin bat. Lift-off appears impossible. Once again, she seeks but finds only the sweet fragrance.
