Welcome to Japan, Penny. I hope that you enjoy your stay with the children. What state do you come from in Australia? From Peter in Tokyo, Japan (a teacher of St. Mary's International School)

To Peter, Hello Peter, There are six states and two territories in Australia. How was Penny when you got her? Was she fine or ill? Did the children like her? Australia is a beautiful country. Queensland is the best of them all in Australia. Penny comes from Tarampa, which is in Queensland. It's starting to get hot here. How's the weather there? From Monique(9), Jennifer(6) and Joel(8) of Tarampa in Australia. P.S. I hope your school and country is beautiful. October 6th, 1998


How about your first visit to Japan? Please visit Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum to learn about Global peace. Enjoy your stay in Japan. From Tadashi of Kodomo Eigo in Hiroshima, Japan (15 years old) September 21st

I was very happy with Penny. Have a good trip to Germany! From Kazue in Hiroshima, Japan (a teacher of Kodomo Eigo) October 2nd


I HAVE TO GO LOOK AT THE POSSUM--- HE CAME TO EAT THE SUNFLOWER SEEDS. THAT ARE DOWN ON THE BENCH. I GAVE HIM A CUT UP APPLE. ONE OF THE OLD SOUR ONES FROM MEIJER (a large grocery store chain). A BIG GRAY CAT COMES TO CHECK OUT THE TABLE NOW. HE LIKES CINDY (our old family dog, a Labrador retriever, who has recently passed on) FOOD. I DON'T HAVE MUCH LEFT. DAD PUT IT IN THE FEEDER THIS SUMMER AND PROBABLY THE COONS (raccoons, like I said they live all over the place on the eastern side of the USA) AND POSSUMS ATE IT. I GUESS I ALWAYS NEED A PET OF SOME KIND. WILD ONES ARE EASIEST. THEY DON'T NEED WATCHING WHEN WE GO AWAY LIKE WE ARE THIS WEEKEND, TO SYCAMORE (my aunt and uncle used to live there. They still like to visit in October for the Pumpkin Festival). I HOPE IT WAITS TO SNOW WHEN THE LEAVES ARE OFF THE TREES THIS YEAR (this is the time of year people travel around the state just to see the trees change color before winter). WE MAY GET A LITTLE THIS WEEK, WE'RE TOLD. From mother of Michael October 20th
