A new friend in minneapolis
Angelo: It's great to make a new friend! Here's a letter we just received from Minneapolis, USA.
Hello Adam, Angelo, and Simon!
My name is Benjamin Roy and I have come to live with Sasha, Anthony, Giancarlo, and the others now. They told me I should write to you all and introduce myself as I am now part of the family. I can't tell you how happy I am to be here...I was stuck in a box for 30 years when my guardian Mr. Archibald Hetherington Nastyface found my only relative, Daddy John. Mr. Nastyface arranged for me to be sent to Daddy John and here I am!
|The first day in my new home.|
Daddy John has been so kind to me, he's been working very hard to get me some new clothes right away--it was such a relief to get out of that school uniform!
|Finally, some new clothes!|
Daddy Steve and my new brothers have all been very welcoming. So far, Pete Dakota and I have hit it off the best. We like to play hide-and-seek out in the backyard and just talk about a lot of different things. I am a very quiet person by nature, so it has been quite an adjustment to all of a sudden having a large family! Daddy John now and then will let me sit by myself for a little while, just to acclimate and hear myself think--the other boys can get so noisy!
|Exploring the back yard of my new home.|
I like to read a lot and just finished the new Harry Potter play. I also like to listen to music (my favorite band is Erasure--and that's Daddy John's favorite, too!) and my job at home is to help with the dishes after dinner. I think I will like it here very much.
Daddy John likes to call me "BR" for short and sometimes he calls me "BR-549." He says it is a reference to an old television program called Hee-Haw he watched as a little boy. Do you know that show? I don't and sometimes I don't understand Daddy John's jokes. He says that's okay; he says a lot of people don't get his sense of humor but he doesn't care as long as Daddy Steve and I still let him live with us and give hugs all around. And I do!
|On the front porch and happy to be home.|
Here are some pictures of me. I hope you all are having a good winter! BR
Angelo: It's been a long time since I came to live with Papa but this story brought back those good memories. I hope that some of the other boy dolls we know will write to us and send photos, too.
