little Rafiki and me





(mug by Gary Rith and Rafiki)
Cheri's daughter has a puppy and asked if I could try to make mugs with him. To me, he looks like a brown dog with black smudges, and I think I managed to capture that much!

Captured, Gary. Well done.

She found that little puppy all starved and dying on the Indian Reservation in Arizona where Courtney is a high school teacher, and rescued him.

These mugs are for Courtney and Grant for Christmas.

Courtney, if you have found your way over here (which you might have done because of all the links on my hamster post), go away! Psych! These Rafiki mugs are NOT for you! They are for your little sister who gets everything.

That pup is "striped" and cute!!! No pit bull, just native american muttikins.

My word verification is 'chely,' which is *almost* the name of my friend and Congresswoman-elect, Chellie Pingree. Another victory for the forces of light!

Second word verification is *hille*. What is this with requiring this visitor-unfriendly business, anyway? That's why I don't leave many notes, when the WV is unreadable, especially.

THIRD WV!!! = mesere

Fourth is soric
this is getting rediculous

I'm sending the Rafiki mugs and ornaments off to Courtney today so they will get to her in time for Christmas.

I don't think she's found her way to this blog post so far . . . so I'm going to put a link to it in with the mugs and ornaments so she can come and see what we cooked up for her.

Thanks for making these gifts for my daughter, Gary. Courtney, we love you!!!
