Golf Ball Mail

Writing the letter

Do you wonder how the Queen of Scotland ended up with her Sea Turtle pet?  Well, Anthea wrapped a present for the Queen…

Posting the letter

…and took the parcel to the Golf Ball Mail service.

Golf Ball

The package was placed in the bucket, and then the engineer started the ball rolling.

Tipping

The ball tipped the flipflop…

.

.

Whoosh!

…which sent the bucket flying down…

    • Making the machine was very entertaining, and the Hittys were extremely glad to be the beneficiaries of such fun! It all started with clothespin arches…and ended up with mail-order turtles!

  1. I didn’t even know there was a Queen of Scotland, much less how she got her sea turtle! Lovely plaids, too.

    • Aurelia has claimed this outfit – made by one of my kind and talented Hitty friends. I didn’t find out that she was the Queen of Scotland until young human came to visit (though it ought to have been obvious from her plaids, jewels, and demeanour)!

  2. And now we know…thank you youngest human of the QH human family. I am so happy to know about this detail and especially how the mail got to the regal Queen of Scotland. It is an extraordinarily creative way to receive mail.

    • It was a lot of fun – young human is a little engineer, fascinated by concepts like weight, momentum, balance and speed – she will fast outstrip my ability to explain them I think, but we can also just have fun like we did here! She LOVES the Scottish Queen outfit!

  3. The country Hittys are quite impressed with the Queen of Scotland’s mail service!! great story and what a fine home the sea turtle will have. Turtle Royalty!!
