Cool Re: Tiptoe

hmmm ... I know she came back to me for a visit and then I sent her on a surprise visit to Sheila's ... just Tippy, not her huge steamer trunk. I thought Sheila sent her on to someone who wasn't doing well and needed some cheering up, but I can't remember who it was.

Re: Tiptoe

I think Patb sent her to Chrisy, but not sure if that was before you sent her to Sheila.
