Henri Gets Mail
A few weeks had gone by and I was still unpacking as well receiving items for the house. As Sentry, Henri watched for the post as well as inspecting deliveries of my online purchases. Although Henri was adept at using the computer, he appeared to be very interested in receiving snail mail.
He usually hid behind the curtain when the mail was delivered and waited for me to retrieve it. One day he uncharacteristically raced outside and grabbed the mail. All bills for me but he was ecstatic as he had received an envelope as well.
“J’ai finalement reçu une lettre de mon cousin Bertrand!”
(I have finally received a letter from my cousin Bertrand!) he exclaimed, waving the letter in the air.
“How nice! Where does he live?”
“Évidemment; Nome, Alaska.”
I should have known. 😉
