I’m sorry I wasn’t here last week. We had a birthday party for Kevin’s official birthday. He was six years old. He had cake with six candles on it, and six pieces of strawberry. He said it was very nice, and when Mummy took the candles away he asked her to share his cake with us. I didn’t like the strawberry thing. I didn’t like it when Mummy gave it to us earlier in the summer, and I still don’t like it. Mummy gives us lots of strange things I never had at my old home, and not enough cabbage, in my opinion. She tried something new this week, called corn cob husks, which the others loved but I thought they were boring. We only get these in September, apparently. Kevin tells me these things. He says he’s trying to pass on the wisdom of those who have passed it to him. Sometimes I wonder if he’s making it up, but he seems to eat all his corn husks and a lot of the fruit, too.
Anyway, here are some pictures of Kevin and his cake, and also a funny animal which was on the leaf above Kevin’s run. It’s called an Elephant Hawk Moth Caterpillar. It was nearly as big as me. Well, no, but it was the size of Mummy’s fingers.
