It’s getting down to the wire in terms of Christmas shopping, so I wanted to alert you to some of the “Made in America” shopping lists I have happened upon over the last few weeks.
Indy Plush American Made Stuffed Animals
Most stuffed animals are made either in the Middle Kingdom or in some other dingy foreign locale. Not so the stuffed animals made by Indy Plush. Indy Plush is the creation of the Franceil Masi, who makes her whimsical animals in the city of my birth, Los Angeles. I can’t really say which is my favorite Indy Plush stuffed animal since I love them all, but my top three are the Indy Plush Elephant, the Indy Plush Javan Rhino, and the Indy Plush Spiny.
The Best Dog Ever
I did a post on our dog Buddy almost three years ago. Buddy was a simply amazingly loving, gentle and sweet Lab. I am very sad to report that we had to put Buddy down last night because he had gotten to the point where he could barely walk and had trouble standing up on his own. For those of you who have owned dogs and that is probably most of us, saying goodbye to your loyal friend is amazingly sad. I miss Buddy very much this morning and will continue to grieve for him over the coming days. Any prayers you could send our and Buddy’s way would be greatly appreciated.
