I thought, "Eh, we might have a chance." I soon forgot when the drawing would be and was off visiting a friend when Cora text-messaged me. Then I was confused by Cora's text message that said I had "Won the Lemon." I was wracking my brain all the way home. Then Cora enlightened me. I thought "Cool!"
Today, after a long day
So, I went in to the local hardware store and purchased another. This is Dog Door #3. I even measured it. I brought it home and noted that it seemed slightly smaller than the old one. I decided to try to smoosh Gypsy through it first...she could get her head and shoulders through it, but not her legs. CRAP! I packaged everything up, including Chloe and headed back to the store, explaining to Cora that the size was right but the dog was not. I went to the store and returned the small one and then discovered the next size up was $20.00 more! Holy CRAP! That FAT DOG is getting expensive!
On the way home the second time I realized I had forgotten to stop for the mail today and so stopped. I left a million dollars in the car (I saw a commercial saying "You wouldn't leave a million dollars in your car, don't leave your children." I hate that commercial and I WOULD leave a million dollars in my car since the empty water bottles and other garbage would camouflage it quite nicely!).
I got to the box and there was a key, which meant there was something big that wouldn't fit our box! So I unlocked the large parcel box and discovered a little bit of happiness! By the weight of it, I thought for sure they had packed it with rocks. When I got it home and Cora and Chloe and I unwrapped it we were delighted to find not one tiny lemon, but TWO HUGE (as in 5X7 inch monsters!) PONDEROSA LEMONS!! Did I mention they were HUMONGOUS!!!? Ginormous! GIANT! GIGANTIC! GRANDE!
