Do you ever receive hand-written letters? I have a dear friend who does not use a computer, so occasionally I receive a very nice hand-written letter.
Mrs. Flattie also does not use a computer, so her correspondence is always in her very fine hand-writing.
Rephinia Flattie has accepted Mrs. Flattie's kind invitation and now it is Tuesday and Mrs. Flattie is waiting at the door to greet her visitor.
Rephinia Flattie is coming down the path and Boxy, the cat who thinks he is a dog, has run to meet her.
Trust me, unless you are Rephinia Flattie, you do not want to be met by Boxy. Rephinia and Boxy have come to an agreement after an incident involving one of Rephinia's many fine hats.
Do have another look at the Flatties.
They love bright colours, in clothing and in their home.
Mr. Flattie likes making modern sculptures which Mrs. Flattie much prefers to flowers.
Mrs. Flattie makes her lemon cake from square lemons.
They have a tradition of always wearing three large buttons (but we'll see later what the teenage Flatties have to say about that) (and Grandma Flattie is quite a rebel too).
They always wear flat shoes.
Above all else they treasure their dear friends.
Isn't this a wonderful world where we can have a friend and a home-made cake?
Boxy says "Grrrrr".
