Snicker Wednesday....A Postal Story

Several weeks ago, Frankie and Ernie emailed to say they were sending a pretend 'rock' for Bella.
We were on the look out for it.

Then a large (Chewy box) arrived and we opened it.
That was Roxy's Easter parcel.

We emailed F n E to say it arrived, and they said 
there was another on the way for Roxy for Easter.
(Are you following this?)

The original package hadn't arrived.
Yesterday, we found it in our letter box
with a sticker on it!

 Inside was a leaflet stating....
 And it contained a letter to explain that the plastic 'rock' would float, so maybe Bella 
play with it at the river instead of real rocks.
They felt sorry that she had to wait for someone to throw
rocks for her.
 They said it would float, and it does.
 We'll try it out on Saturday in the river, in a calm part where
 the current won't take it.

Bella checked it out.
We're not sure what the result will be as Bella
is very particular about the size of rock and
where it lands, but we'll let you know.
Thanks guys!
(We think our name might be on record
 on the Customs computers.)


  1. Australia Customs are very strict. They confiscate anything that looks the slightest bit 'suspicious'.


  2. I bet your are on the list, the one that says open these there's great fun thingys inside!
    Oh wow Bella can't wait to see how you get on wiv your new 'rock'

  3. We can't wait for Saturday to see how Bella likes her new blue rock!

  4. OMCs I bet the custom folks get a kick out of packages for you all from FnE. At least Frankie a Judge and Ernie the Attorney can defend themselves should the need arise!!
    They know it will be full of fun so they are jealous and open them JUST because they can!! Have fun Bella!!
    Hugs madi your bfff

  5. Lol that's so funny the Rock was inspected!!

  6. how cool is that - it might take a few goes before she gets to like it - but hopefully it will work :)

  7. Glad the rock made it past inspection by the government. But the true test will be does it pass Bella's inspection!

  8. OMD OMD THIS is SOOOOOO funny... your Postal Peeps look at EVERYTHINGY... and sometimes they even TAKE your Stuffs... like they did with the Greenies and Snacks that I (Roxy's Ernie) sent fur Easter. {{SIGH}} Well, it was the THOUGHT that COUNTS... RIGHT?
    Hope the ROCK makes a HIT... and a real Splash at the River.....

  9. wow that rock rocks!!!! please keep me informed if you liked to play with it at the river :o)is there a reason that all parcels have to pass an inspection? or is that common?

  10. That's really cool. Don't eat it!!!

  11. BOL!!! Too funny that they quarantined a float-y rock!! We can't wait to see how Bella likes playing with it in the river!
    Dory, Jakey, Arty & Bilbo

  12. BOL gotta love customs. I didn't realize Bella is so picky about her rocks, that's hilarious.

    Aroo to you,

  13. Yup, you officially are recorded as having rocks in your head.

  14. Maybe they thought is was an alien rock??
    Hope Bella has fun with it
    Mr Bailey, Hazel & Mabel

  15. OMD, I thought fur a second that the custom peeps were gonna STEAL your fake rockie too!!! Phew! I am so glads SOMETHINGS made it through those peeps hands...I can't waits to see if Bella approves at the river!!

  16. Oh my gosh, we are a little worried about a small envelope we just sent off to Princess Leah and the inspectors keeping it also.....that is a pretty cool rock though. stella rose

  17. It is good to know the officials are on top of keeping the toxic rocks out of the country. We are glad yours got through. Enjoy.

  18. Whew, it would really be worrisome if that plastic rock didn't pass inspection:)

    Hope it works for Bella.

    The birthday post actually showed up this morning in Feedly, a wee bit behind schedule:)

  19. Sometimes I don't think customs offishuls got enuf work to do.

  20. I'm sure you feel safer knowing that they inspect every rock that comes into the country ;) What a great idea. I hope it works for Bella!

  21. I hope you have lots of fun with your rock!!

  22. Glad to see that this one passed customs.

  23. I've no doubt they have a special inspector for your packages! I can't wait to see just how that rock does!

  24. Bella might also be 'particular ' when it comes to rock colours. Whatever happens you can b sure Dui will have hours of fun with it.

  25. I hope your name is not on record at the Customs computers!
    We don't want them messing with Easter!
