My brother just sent this to me. (We’re in London waiting to board our flight to Lusaka.)
Please see correspondence from Ozzy below;
Dear mom, dad, et. Al
I had quite a day yesterday. I didn’t particularly care for those British Air snobs but everything turned out well. I went to Corona California tuesday afternoon and the first thing I got to do was defecate on these peoples’ pretty lawn – everything was going well until I was startled by these tiny birds halfway through my business. They were everywhere. I was enamored by the constant dive bombing and their arrogance. I soon learned these ‘hummingbirds’ are impossible to lick so I gave up. Which was just as well because I discovered these small furry creatures staring at me through a window.
A few barks later I was welcomed into the house where these ‘cats’ resided. I immediately went to the nice sofa and watched (was I supposed to make myself at home?)
After a while this black cat came up to me and I gave it a lick which it seemed to enjoy. Since there was a nice lady watching all this it sort of implied that it would be Ok if I ‘mouthed’ the cat. That didn’t go so well because the nice lady freaked. That ended my interaction with ‘cat’ for the evening.
I found that if I do the low, throaty whine, I will get attention. This worked so well that the nice guy who took me home came out of the bedroom and stayed with me until I was sleepy. (note to self, whining does work) I slept fine after I made it clear that I am not to be ignored.
This morning we were up real early. I did my thing in their pretty lawn again, this time there were no distractions, and then went to the office where I am writing you now.
I get to spend two days at grandpas and then on Friday, I get to go back to corona which I like very much. There’s even talk of reintroducing me to the ‘cat’ again. I can’t wait…
All is well and I hope to see you soon!
