So, Flat Richie has sent me a few holiday postcards 😉. Not quite – but finally, after a bit of a hiatus, I have some stories to tell. 😁 It’s been a good long while since Flat Richie last surfaced. From Tennessee he travelled to Oklahoma.
That’s a nice, neat straight line there on the map, and only 750 kilometers, or so.
In American terms – just a little daytrip away, right? Unfortunately Flat Richie arrived at a bad time, with lots of things going on in Jen’s life, and hence he stayed a little longer to support her. Things are still hectic, but Jen nevertheless has long sent on the parcel to the next recipient. More about the next stop on the journey in a post tomorrow. She sent me a few pictures to illustrate the update.
The next image is a selection of 5 items which I had originally picked out (I wanted the candle, the Greek soap, the Funny Knight Apron, the Ferrero Rocher candy, and a little heart ornament which I stuck to one of my plant misters to indicate that was the one that still works)… I later re-discovered the instructions and had to return the candle and the soap, since rules said up to 3 items and, well, Hubby was already grilling in the manly apron, I ate the candy immediately, and the ornament went into use straight away misting the ferns and orchids.
The third photo is a sneak peak at one of the 3 items I replaced… travelling angel wings to protect Flat Richie as he goes!
Finally, Jen enclosed an mp4 video which I turned into a gif (for less storage space on blog). In Jen’s words:
That is the type of weather Flat Richie left behind (a view from the UPS store as I dropped him off!… and I do want it to be on record that he survived 61 tornadoes across Oklahoma during his stay with me… lucky to make it out alive!) Haha…
Why, Jen, that looks like a perfectly fine Irish summer’s day to me 😂.
Anyhow, many thanks to Jen for her illustrated report. I had no doubt that Flat Richie would be in good hands with you – I just wish you had had less distraction and more opportunity to enjoy him. Here’s hoping that things will quieten down for you now and you can actually enjoy the summer a bit.
For a look at Flat Richie’s itinerary so far, look here:
Flat Richie has already left his *next* stop and is now on his way across the Atlantic once again, over to Europe. But his last stop on the North American continent (for now) will be covered in a separate post on this blog, probably tomorrow.
