Gretta Comes and Goes

Dear little Gretta with all the courage she could muster took the ticket in her paw and hopped on that magical Shooting Star and up and up she went through the midnight sky...past Jupiter and Mars and Pluto in a dash she flew past the moon and through the sky and came right back down again...Then and only then she found another ticket and it read "Ladder to Moon" and she decided that was a safer way to travel. She climbed and climbed, she saw a rat and a bear and a mouse fly by...there went Hazel and up Gretta climbed. HELLO MOON!

The moon smiled back and gave a wink, for this little hedgehog was the only hedgehog that had ever visited the moon. She made history that night at midnight. It was was quite a night! Gretta contemplated staying with the moon but he blew her a kiss and said, "You my little brave friend, belong in Nowhere but I will watch over you and your friends for all your live long days..."

Oh sweet tiny Gretta, the man in the moon would probably love to keep you for himself, but we are happy you made a safe journey, and will return to us soon. Did you know, that same ladder was used to catch a falling star once..yep, and I lassoed the star..I tried to save it in a jar for tiny Pippit, but it just wouldn't fit!..guess it's the thought that counts! xoxo ~ Hazel

Gretta babe, this is only the beginning. Get out your best dancing shoes, and keep your ticket. There will be a blast in the sky and we are all invited. Yes, you eyes did not deceive you; you did see a bear, some mice and two rats WHOOOSH by! You are on the same MILKY WAY PATH...just keep faith and keep flying...we will all get there and have one more ROMP before the seasons change and confine us back to earth. But for NOW......WE ARE IN THE STARS!!!!! TAKE OFFFFFFFFFFFF! Tea Rat
