MY PANDA MAILBOX SAID HE WAS ON STRIKE TODAY
So the next step was to get this petition sent as a hard copy as fast as possible to the UK Kennel Club on Xmas Eve in a record snowfall…with the few drivers what were out on the road……absolutely insane!!
WE TRIED FLOATING IT DOWNSTREAM FIRST TO SEE IF FED EX WOULD PICK IT UP AT THE OTHER END..IT GOT HUNG UP ON AN ICEBURG!
THEN WE TRIED CONVINCING THE HUMMINGBIRD THAT HE WOULD KEEP WARMER IF HE COULD ACT AS OUR CARRIER PIGEON TO TAKE THE PARCEL TO THE UK. THAT IDEA DIDN’T FLY!!
SO WE PUT ON THE PARKAS……WELL I LIED…..AFTERALL, IT’S PORTLAND OREGON….WE LAYERED RAINCOATS AND PUT ON OUR GARDENING GLOVES AND WE HEAD OUT TO THE NEAREST FED EX OFFICE
YES!!! WE MADE IT!!!!! HERE ARE ALL THE DOCUMENTS IN A NICE PRESENTATION FOLDER, STUFFED IN OUR “UNDER ONE POUND” ENVELOPE…AND 70.00 LATER WE ARE DONE WITH THIS CHAPTER OF THE PETITION……..NOW WE WAIT!!
THANK YOU ALL ONCE AGAIN FOR ALL YOUR HELP …AND A SPECIAL THANK YOU TO LOVE BANGHART AND BERNICE LEROY FOR YOUR QUICK RESPONSE IN ASSISTING ME AUTHOR THE PETITION AND LETTERS AT SUCH A SPEEDY PACE…AND VANESSA NICOLAU FOR THE VERY CRUCIAL “HEADS UP” ON THE TIME CONTSTRAINTS TO GET THINGS ROLLING QUICKLY!
