It's a great story, and I decided to send the photo to my email so I could illustrate the story on my blog. I sent myself "Toy but no food" just after 8:00 pm, but it didn't arrive, even after I checked my email several times. I sent it again, calling this one "In her empty dish" so I'd know which would finally arrive in my email. The second attempt showed up almost immediately, and I downloaded it into my "images" folder.
"In her empty dish" (2nd, sent later) came at 8:20 pm, and "Toy but no food" (1st, sent earlier) didn't arrive until 2:35 am. That's six-and-a-half hours later! Was it floating in the clouds? Ooooh, but see below where I forwarded it to some friends ― and it says it was sent at 8:03 pm. What the heck?!? The in-box list still shows 2:35 am. Where did it go during those missing hours?
----- Forwarded Message -----I forgot to add that Clawdia immediately started playing with the toy when she came out of hiding. She batted it this way and that way ... chasing it around the room, into the hallway, oops! Gone again. I got online to check email and Facebook, then offered to take Clawdia for a walk before going to bed. As I slipped on my shoes, Clawdia peered under the bookcase in the hall. Aha! I felt under it and came up with the sparkly ball, and off she went, batting it happily into the living room and the bedroom. I had my shoes on, so once again I opened the door to let her walk down the hall, as she likes to do every evening. But no, she was having more fun with the toy. Then ... oops! Where'd it go? I think it's lost this time among the boxes, but I haven't been able to find it. Yet. It could be under any of several bookcases. We'll find it, eventually. In the meantime, I promised to get her more like it so she can keep having fun. This is the first toy she has ever fallen in love with.
