A gift from down-under

My wife, Marjorie, is Australian. Naturally enough, so is my mother-in-law, Vicki. When Vicki found out about my tumor, she was very supportive, but let's face it, there's not much she can do from the opposite side of the world. Or so I thought.

Today, my five-year-old son, Kyle, received a package from Grandma Vicki in Australia. Inside was every five-year-old boy's dream: a Roboreptile. It's a robot that looks like a dinosaur. It's got a remote control, it makes noise, and it's got attitude. Kyle loves it and has named it "Fido".

Vicki was worried that Kyle might need a special friend while I'm busy getting Frank evicted from my colon. Now he has one.

Thank-you Vicki for all of your help.
