Thanks Tina

FOR ME???????
Yesterday, Ray and I got a package in the mail from one of his fans. I honestly can't figure out how Ray knows which packages contain something for him, but he obviously does. Because, as Gregg handed me the padded envelope, Ray snatched it from my hands and tore into it. Since I had caught a glimpse of the return address, I was reasonably sure that the gift was fiber-related and not breakable so I let him at it.
The package was one of those envelopes made out of the stuff plastic bags are made from and was pretty tough so it took Ray quite a while to get into it. To his disappointment, as soon as he did, I took the envelope from him to see what we had received. 

How do you get into this thing?
Thanks to Tina, Ray and I are both ready for next winter. As a matter of fact, we can hardly wait for the return of the cold weather so that we can wear our gifts. Even though Ray's present was labeled a toy (and he did, in fact, grab it and flap it around a bit) I thought it would look good on him. Here we are modeling our presents from Tina. 
And it's my favorite color
I think it's quite stylish.

What do you mean it's a turtle neck?
Ray and I have never met Tina but we like her a lot. We all share a passion for fiber. And when I blogged about the girl at the pet store who had abandoned her old dog, Tina got in touch with me to say that she would adopt the hound if he was still available. Although I contacted the shelter, they were not able to tell me what had happened to the old boy. 
So Tina happens to be a good person and a good knitter. What more could a blind dog ask for in a fan?
