I have to say this, even though I’ve already thanked her.  It may sound corny or overly effusive, and maybe even a tad embarrassing, to one of my favorite WP peeps.

If you don’t know Dr. Meg from Meg Sorick, Writer, you should now become ashamed of yourself!  She’s a fantastic writer, a baker, an artist, has terrific taste in music, and has a terrific sense of humor.

And, she’s a wonderful person.  (And, while I’m at it, and in this kinda sappy mood, I’ll go ahead and open a can of Stuart Smalley on you, Sandra, just for shits and giggles.  And because you’re another one of my favorite peeps around here.  😃)

I’ve known Doc for nearly two years here in WP land, and I’ve thoroughly enjoyed her posts, comments, and friendship.

Over that time, she’s gotten a couple of our bottle cap pieces.  She’s sent us caps from her neck of the woods a time or two, which I greatly appreciate.  So, when she let me know the other day to be on the look-out for a box, I just assumed there’d be some caps headed our way.

Well, when I was finally able to get to the post office, I was handed over a really big box!  I was surprised, and my first thought was, “Damn Doc!  Y’all have been drinking a shit ton of beer!”

When I got home and opened it, that’s where the big surprise was.  Yeah, there were bottle caps in there alright.  These:

Oh, and a couple of stickers!  Schweeeeet:

While I’m always grateful for the caps that our friends keep for us, and I’m a stickerholic, the size of that bag of caps and five stickers was nowhere near commiserate with the girth of that box.

After reading her sweet note, and a little digging, we found the real reason for the packaging:

I was blown away.  The sketch was one Doc had done a while back, and was inspired by one of my pics.  And a mutual admiration for those donkeys, Ticky and Tacky:

There’s a third in the herd, Tombo, but he’s not as personable as these two.  Anyway, she featured the drawing in one of her posts  and I was super honored by that gesture in itself.  To receive this gift, one that required a fair bit of time, effort, and cost, was lovely.  It gave me the feels, ya’ know?

So, like I said earlier, if you haven’t stopped by to see Dr. Meg, or Sandra too, I have one question for you: Why the hell not?

“Do I Have To Talk You Into It?”

No real reason for the song insertion there.  I just like it and it seemed to fit the prose.  😃

Thanks again, my friend.  And remember, if you haven’t visited Doc or Sandra, I recommend you do it.

Thanks y’all.  You both rock!  😊

I am absolutely thrilled that you liked it so well. And I get a kick out of sending the caps knowing they go into your awesome artwork! So its a mutual admiration society! Thank you again! 😀 ❤

  3. I think you might be crazy. 😀

    Meg is the sweetest. That’s just like her to send you the picture (and everything else) — doesn’t surprise me at all. Maybe I should take up drinking and save you some caps? LOL Right now I could only offer used coffee pods… but I’m sure you have plenty of your own.

    Thanks for the kind words, Stuart. Or am I supposed to be Stuart? I still think you’re way too nice to me and I don’t know how you put up with my craziness… but I’m glad that you do. You’ve been a great friend to me. I hope I’ve been a friend to you, too. Go make yourself more cupcakes! ♥
