Ronkonkoma, New York, USA - 31st May 2013

By: Grandma

Dear Mum,
Today I had a great treat -- I went to a restaurant for sushi! I remember having sushi once before, but this time I also learned to use chop sticks. They are not so easy for a little mouse like me, but with some help I managed to balance them under my armpits, and get the food moved close enough to the edge of the plate to get closer to my mouth. My hosts were infinitely patient, but the waitress appeared to be afraid of me. Maybe she is afraid of mice. She walked rapidly away from us as soon as she spotted me on the table.

Soon you will have a visit from Lamikins. She finally got into her envelope for the long trip, and Grandma took her to the post office. I think she was afraid, since it is her first trip. I reassured her that it is perfectly safe. She says to tell you she is looking forward to meeting you.

I think I will be ready to come home soon. But first my hosts will take me to see a courthouse!

Love and kisses,
Dottie mouse

Ronkonkoma, New York, USA - 5th June 2013

By: Grandma

Hello Mum,
It is a beautiful spring season here in Ronkonkoma. The flowers are blooming, so I took a walk around to smell the wonderful spring fragrance and see the bright colors. I love sitting on the fence in the sunlight. The Rhododendron bush is behind me.

Afterwards, I enjoyed a treat with my friends. We had Cabot Cheddar Cheese with rye bread. Mmmmm, smells so good! This cheese is made in the state of Vermont, about four hours to the north of us here in Ronkonkoma. It is a natural aged cheese with a strong taste, but very pleasant and has a smooth texture. So delicious! :p
Love,
Dottie Mouse

Riverhead, New York, USA - 9th June 2013

By: Grandma

Dear Mum,
Today my host took me to see a quilt show and a courthouse. We drove about 30 miles to the County Center of Suffolk County on Long Island. This small town is called Riverhead, because it is situated at the head of a river. As County Center, the town has a courthouse, so I got my picture taken in front of part of it. Since it is being renovated, we could only see a small part of the courthouse. This was built in 1929, after a fire destroyed the old one. I'm glad I got to complete part of my mission, to see courthouses! I also got to participate in a class at the quilt show. I learned how to embroider with silk ribbons. You can see my sampler in the picture. I saw many beautiful quilts, and admired the prize winners.
Miss you,
Dottie Mouse

Ronkonkoma, New York, USA - 13th June 2013

By: Grandma

Dear Mum,
I just found out that I will be going to Finland! First I need to repair my summer dress, since it has lost some of its stitches. I need to do this right away, so I am ready to travel. Here you can see me sewing, and I think the sewing box is such a nice place for a little mouse like me, that I find myself compelled to jump right in. :rolleyes:

Ronkonkoma, New York, USA - 13th June 2013

By: Grandma

Dear Mum,
My host family toys gave me a going away party this afternoon. I got two cakes, and we shared them with Bootsie the cat. She is a good cat, and doesn't chase mice, so I'm not afraid. I will miss all my friends in Ronkonkoma, especially Fido the dog, and Teddy the bear, since they are close to my size and they went on adventures with me. I am whispering in Fido's ear. Should I tell you what I said? I won't tell, it's a secret! ;)
Love, Dottie Mouse

By: Grandma

Dear Mum,
Now it is time to get in my envelope. I was going to wear my sweater, but my host says it is warm and I might be too hot while traveling, so I took it off and put it in the envelope. Then I jumped in, and Fido put the postcard in with me. Now I am on my way to Finland! Hurray!
Love you,
Dottie

Hello mommy!

I'm safely in Finland now!
I met my hostmommy, who promised to take good care of me while my visit with her.
I met also some other toyvoyagers: Kurnau, Nyankororin, Phillip, Nayeli, Santa Bear and Ronya. They all said welcome to me. :)

https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-c4AnbeLo6Ks/UdgQgnFZIAI/AAAAAAAAT6o/0b35izY2gac/s576/IMG_3222.JPG

I showed them the nice postcard, it was written by my last host, and she wrote it to my new host.
Everyone liked the postcard, and then they all gave me a grouphug as a welcome.

https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-4qrx5UsX8hI/UdgQgmiNBqI/AAAAAAAAT6g/Mnsw1ErwEQI/s576/IMG_3224.JPG

And mommy, I want to introduce Kurnau cat. He is my host here. Even though I am a mouse, and he is a cat, we became friends imediately, so you don't need to be worry about me at all, mom! :)

Hello mommy!

Today I had very exiting day!
Mommy, I met other toyvoyagers, and we had a TOYVOYAGER MEETING!  :D

At first, we went to eat. Yummy!  :p

https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-PBJickfQOIE/Uht88cIvAcI/AAAAAAAAVcQ/Glk2jAQv0T8/s603/IMG_3495.JPG

After eating, we went to outside and wrote some postcards... :)

https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-U5Gz61qDlaI/Uht891uN7kI/AAAAAAAAVeY/i-ichb7D3N4/s512/IMG_3501.JPG

Then we found some weird things: those wooden things with different numbers on them.
What are those things?  :o

He promised to teach us how to play it...

https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-ItgCcg9dxas/Uht_Aprn3kI/AAAAAAAAVf8/W38MrmUP4ts/s640/IMG_3509.JPG

After playing we calculated our scores...

https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-lc_3z7KSbJc/Uht9BTgbq-I/AAAAAAAAVdc/to-KOT9Xq2Y/s640/IMG_3520.JPG

It was exiting!

I was invited by a lady from California. Today I packed my things. Mommy told me that it would be rather warm in California, that I wouldn't need my jumper and skirt.

SunnyHH told me that California sounds great :)
