a message from Mini - in her own words
« on: December 10, 2007, 07:58:10 AM »
I take different medicines.  My different medicines are the yucky medicine and the pills.  There are some other people here from all over the world who are like me. People even from Texas! Do you have to take yucky medicine, too?  Does your mommy put milk in your meds so they taste better?  My mommy does.  I hope you all get better and can come to my birthday party which is in August (date deleted by mum...sorry).  I will be 8 years old.  Thank you.  Goodbye.

(Mini's exact words typed by mum)

Tell mini, that yes we have to take yucky medicines , most of us don't have a wonderful mommy to mix them with milk.  But I do it for my little boy when he has to take medicine.     Hope she has a great birthday party.                 What a sweet message.    Cristy

Hi Mini!

I live on a big Rock in the middle of the Irish Sea. I get to fly on an airplane to see my special doctor, because we don't have any special doctors here on the Rock.

"The Rock" is my silly name for where I live - it's really called the Isle of Man. (we have girls and women here too ;) )

I've heard you're a really good dancer - maybe you can teach me some steps one day.

Hugs,
Ann

Hi doggy man.  My favorite subject in school is math.  Maybe one day you can meet me and I can teach you how to dance.  The Isle of Man is a funny name for your house.  I don't get to ride in an airplane, but my paw-paw can fly them.  And helicopters, too.  I like to ride on roller coasters.  My mom has to drive me to Dr. Muffin's (her nickname for her PID) office in our truck.  My mom said I can't tell you my phone number.  My mom is my teacher of homeschool.  And, my dad, too.  We clean up our rooms all by ourselves.  Sometimes, dad helps us.  He doesn't like to. And I live in WV mountains where we have boys and girls, too. That's it. Thank you.  Good bye.

Hi Mini. My dog's name is Sam The Hot Dog. He said he would love to play catch with you. Sam wants to know if you have any pets at home? Sam can count to fifty.

How can our dog count to 50?  That is impossible for a dog and a cat.  No animals can do that.  That is just crazy.  And I do not have pets at home.  Someday you can see my dance class.  Maybe I can teach you some of it.  And me and my sister has a bunkbed.  My little sister and brother just have regular beds.  And only the dog that I have is my stuffed animal Lacey.  Lacey is the only dog that can count and she can count to 15.  I have more stuffed animals.  I love animals.  Someone is sending me a teddy bear from Germany.  I have to go do my work - dad says.  Oh, and thank you.

Sam is very, very, smart, just like you. I would love to see your dance class. I bet you are the best dancer in the whole class. Maybe you can teach me the Hokey-Pokey. Do you know that dance? Sam wanted me to send a picture to his new friend. Now do what your Dad says and finish your school work. ;)

From Sam.

Hi Mini,

My house isn't called the Isle of Man, it just has a number. The country I live in is called the Isle of Man. It's an island. Maybe you can learn more about it at your homeschool.

Do you have the top bunk or the bottom bunk? I like the top, but when you have the bottom you can hang blankets all around and make your own bed-tent. Ever try that? It's fun.

We can't have your phone number, but we can write to each other on the computer when your mom helps you. ;)

Hugs,
Ann

Hi Mini:

Wow, you like math?  I just had to take a math class (algebra actually) where I go to college at.  It was really hard!  I think that's great that you like math, though.  I'm sure it will help you as you get older.  I live in Indiana, right by the border of Michigan.  It is very cold here right now and we've been having freezing rain, which I don't like at all.  I think it's neat that we're getting to hear from you, with your mom's help.  Keep in touch with us, sweetie~
Peace-

Hi, Mini!

I'm Tim and I live in the Georgia mountains.  I love dogs and kids, and I am awful at math.  Just awful.  I also take yucky medicine with milk.  Chocolate milk, to be specific.  I love chocolate milk.  I'm also glad that you and your Mom are on here so we can hear about your dancing.

Hi Mini. Mum tells us you are a sweet young girl, full of sugar and spice.
Some of the meds are gross, yes! I take mine with fruit juice sometimes just to get'em down my throat.  I also like animals--they're great to have around. I have several kinds of animals on a small farm in Ohio. Three pygmy goats (small goats), nine llamas, six dogs, and two cats and one pot bellied pig named Georgie! Georgie is a really funny guy and smarter than the average pig. You ought to hear the noises he makes when I give him sweet peas to eat. Funny stuff.
Check out the picture of a young llama and then one of Georgie below.
Hope you have a great day, today, Mini.

hey chickpea  :)

My name is Kate, and I live in England - part of a bigger island, kinda next door to the one that Ann lives on.  I take my meds with milk sometimes, usually just with boring old water though - but I do have a special cup I like to use, with a bendy-twirly straw.

How was school today? Maths used to be one of my favourite subjects too - I also liked art, & learning about different parts of the world and the people who live there.

Sounds like you were the star of your dance recital the other night! I used to do ballet and modern dance, a long time ago. I don't think I ever had a tambourine though - just a floaty scarf to wave around (which always made me feel a bit silly)

Say hello to Lacey for me  :)

Hi Mini----

It is good to hear from you. Your Mommy is very proud of you and talks about you a lot. I think you are a very brave and smart little girl. Your Mommy says you did very well at your dance performance. I use to take ballet when I was smaller and could actually stand on my toes!!!! I know what you mean about the medicine being yucky. The pill I take is too big and I always have to cut it in half. I hope to hear more from you...

Hi Mini,

I have to take pills every day and they aren't yucky but sometimes they make me feel yucky.  That doesn't happen very much, though , so I don't mind taking them.

I live in Austin, which is the capital of Texas.  It's a city, but my dad has a small ranch that is not far away.  He has horses and cattle, and there are wild pigs that live around there, too. Sometimes they come into the yard and tear up all the grass so my dad had to put a different kind of fence up to keep them out.

Here's a picture of my dad's horse Red Texas.


Cheers,
Creighton

Hey Mini!

My name's Matty and I live in Australia, on the other side of the planet. I don't like my medicines either. Your mummy tells us lots about you especially how well you danced the other day.

We have lots of interesting animals in Australia. Here's a picture of one called a wombat:


He's just a baby and lives in a pouch on his mummy's belly.

I hope you have a wonderful Christmas.

Hi princess, oops I mean queen..we do have another queen here so I hope she won't get mad at us for stealing her name.. :D

My name is Jan and I live way over the other side of the world in New Zealand..can you imagine that while you are having your winter snow we are having our summer and it's getting really hot here now..so at Christmas we have BBQ's out in the back yard or on the beach...how strange is that.

I have posted you a photo of couple of the animals that I have on my little farm, I hope you like them...the Alpaca is called Carlos and the goatis called Jenni, we have 7 Alpacas, 6 goats, 7 sheep 11 chickens and two dogs.

Thank you for inviting us to your to your birthday party, it's a shame I live so far away from everyone..

Give mummy a big hug for me, you are so lucky to have each other.

Big hugs to you Mini
Love Jan :-*

Hello!  It's nice to talk to you and I love Doxa Dance.  I love the animals that you let me look at.  I love your horse, your chickens, and the llama, and the goat and the baby fat pig, and the baby mouse thingy (wambat).  I love unicorms but they aren't real, I know that. Everyday in the morning I have to do school like my big brother.  Only,he goes to school and I have homeschool.  I used to go to school but now I have homeschool.  I sleep on the top of the bunkbed and my sister sleeps on the bottom.  My yucky medicine isn't my pill medicine.  My yucky medicine is liquid.  They are called zerit and kaletra.  They get mixed together and then mommy puts milk in it.  My pills are called susteva and I take that and my fish oil with my juice or sometimes my tea.  Now I have to go to bed because my dad says.  Mom said I could write and tell you all good night and look at the pictures you sent me.  Maybe I will draw you a picture and my mom will send it to you.  I'll look on my map tomorrow and see where you are and you can look on your map and see where I am.  Now daddy says I really have to go to bed.  Hope you will write back to me - this is really fun. Thank you and goodbye.

Hehehehe. He does look like a mouse, doesn't he? :)

Actually he's not a mouse. He's a marsupial. Marsupials are found only in Australia, Papua New Guinea and North America. You might be familiar with his cousins, the opossums.

When he grows up, he'll look something like a badger.

Hi Mini !

I live in Michigan, our state is shaped like a giant mitten.  It's getting quite cold here now, time to wear our mittens.  We gets lots of snow here in the winter, the boys and girls like to build snowmen. 
I have been through the mountains of WV a few times, it's just beautiful!  Do you get any snow there?
I also like to dance..in my livingroom!  :)  Dancing makes me feel good!

Here's a picture of my dog Buddy, he is a big sweetheart!  He loves to cuddle  :)  Don't let him fool you, he does not sleep in his doggie bed, he sleeps with me.  We use his bed for a toybox  ;D

Hope you have a wonderful day Mini !

Hi again, Mini. So glad you are enjoying the messages and pictures that the different folks are sending to you. It is interesting to learn about all the people, animals and places that are in your messages, isn't it?
You mum wrote us about Dance night. She was bragging about how well you danced. That is swell !.
I hope you have a nice day, Mini.
Are you really going to draw a picture to send to us? That would be so neat to see.

Good morning Mini:

I live in the northern part of Indiana.  I have one cat named Poppy that I adopted from a local animal shelter.  I've had her almost two years.  I would send a picture, but alas, I don't have a digital camera.  And I don't know how to use my scanner to put the picture on here.   We are getting freezing rain right now, which makes it really yucky to drive around in.  A lot of slipping and sliding.  I hope you're having pretty good weather where you're at.  Are you getting excited for Christmas?  Have a good day, sweetie.
Peace-

Hi Mini this is Sam the Hot Dog here. I'm getting my dad to type for me like your mom types for you. My dad put my Christmas stocking up for me on the fireplace. It is red and green and says Have A Dog Gone Good Christmas on it. I hope Santa fills it with bones because I have been a good boy this year. Except when Daddy leaves his socks on the floor and I chew holes in them. ;D Have you been good? Do you chew holes in your daddy's socks? My dad is nice. He lets me stick my head out the car window when we drive to Grandpa's.

I have a joke for you to ask your dad.

Dad, how do you catch a squirrel?

Climb up in a tree and act like a nut!

That's all from me right now. I'll talk to you later. Here's a picture of my Christmas stocking.

Your friend,
Sam

Good morning! I just woke up and mommy read me your letters. I love your dog. I am excited that Christmas is coming up.  We put up our christmas tree and we put up our stockings.  Dad said someday when it's Christmas time, we can make cookies - but he said "maybe". For Christmas, I want some boy Barbie dolls because i already have girls, and I want banoculars and a telescope.  I like to play with my toys but sometimes we don't take care of them.  We torture them and break them .(mom says, "torture"? ???)  I hope you all have a really good Christmas.  Mom needs to teach me how to do the computer so I can write my letters myself.  Thank you and bye!

Dear Sam,
I don't chew on my dad's sock.  I'm a human being, not a dog.  And, his socks are really nasty.  His feet stink really bad.  Make sure you write a letter to Santa so you can get what you want.  I wrote a letter and my mom mailed it for us.  I had a dog named Shelby Dog but she ran away when i was little.

Hi mini,

I told you about my dog Lola.

She is such a sweety. She  loves fresh meat and fish.
And when i drop one of my pills she sniffs at it and then runs away..;she  does not like my pills at all :D :D :D :D

Lola can do all sort of tricks like roll-over, sit, speak.. I bet you woul love to play ball with her. She pushes the ball away with her snout and I have  to catch it.. just like real football..

I hope you are having fun preparing for Christmas.. and when daddy's feet smell bad squueze your nose and tell him.. ;D ;D ;D

big hug from Belgium.
Belgium lays in Europe and has 10.000.000 people living in it.
It is very rainy now and ocld.. We don(t have snow that much, but not enough sunshine either.
Big doggy kiss and lick form Lola and me

Dear Sam and Lola and all the people,
We know that you can do tricks.  What do you want for Christmas? It snows a lot here.  Lola, can you count to 50 like Sam?  Or just to 15 like Lacey dog? 

They are going to take a picture of my brain (mom edits: MRI) and give me gas to sleep.  And put in a IVS (I.V.) when I'm asleep.  I can't eat anything and I think I'm gonna starve all the way to death.  Do you know what your brain looks like?

School was fine.  But I had a little trouble with my math.  I like to color and drawed a picture that I was having a snowball fight and going sledding.  I read about fish in the ocean.  I didn't do my alphabetical order. (mom says, "whoops!") I like when it snows but it is only raining.  And even when it snows and other schools are closed, mom says our school isn't gonna close. 

That's all .  I just had my nap.  Make sure you write a note back (mom says, "told you she was a queen!")

Hi Mini this is Sam. I like snow too, but it is very warm here today. It is so warm that I had to help my dad mow the backyard. Sometimes he lets the grass grow and gets high enough to tickle my tummy. Wow you sound very brave. I have only had the outside of me photographed, never the inside. I wonder what our brains do look like? I bet they look like gummy worms. ;D I don't know what I want for Christmas. I better hurry and make up my mind so I can send my letter to Santa. Tell your Mommy that if it snows homeschoolers get to go out and make a snowman. That's all for me right now. Here's a picture of me in the hat I will wear for your birthday. Write me soon.

love,
Sam

Hi Mini my name is Dan & I live in Jackson TN.  I have a Minature Schanuzer, his name is Felix. He just became the daddy to 5 gorgeous little schnauzer pups on Nov.14th.  So, you like to dance,. What else do you like to do? I have to take yucky medicene everyday too. Sometimes it makes my stomach upset, but I know it is keeping me well so I take it everyday. Your a brave little girl  and I am glad I have had the chance to  talk to you online. What do you want Santa Clause to bring you for Christmas? Hopefully one day you can have your own little doggie to cuddle with and give hugs and kisses to.

 Here is a photo of my new puppies.

Hugs,

Dan

Felix and his baby puppies send you doggie kisses.

Dear Dan, Sam, and Felix,
It hasnt' been snowing that much in WV.  For Christmas, i want Santa to bring me a trampoline, banoculars, and a telescope.  And boy Barbies.  And girl Barbies because my brothers broke the arms off my other Barbies.  And, I want some Barbie clothes and I want a toy puppy.  I also want my own computer to type to you on.  I want a mirror and a guittar, no a keyboard, it's easier to play the keyboard and sing in the microphone. I need an alarm clock that rings because I never know when it's morning 'cuz my eyes are closed.

My room is yellow and it has pink curtains.  It has a toy kitchen and my bunkbed.  It has my blue blocks. It has a purple carpet floor. (mom says, it's NOT purple) Right now it's messy a lot and we never clean it up.  I was supposed to clean it up today, but I didn't so i can't watch quiet time.

Good night, I have to go clean my room or go to bed. Then at 7 o'clock I have to take my meds and brush my teeth and eat my vitamen and go to sleep.

Sweet dreams sweetie. You better write a letter to Santa Clause to make sure he knows what you want for Christmas!

I don't like to clean my room either.

hugs,

Dan

Hi Mini
Math was very hard for me, but i use a lot of math at my job. learn all the math you can, it will help you when you grow up.
I'm Nadine's husband, and Buddy the dog sleeps with us all the time. he loves kids. he would sit up and beg you to pet him. he is a silly doggie.
If i have a hard time with a math problem maybe you can help me with it.
I'm going to try milk tonight with my pills. i hope it helps.

When I grow up, I want to be a woman that looks through a telescope, and a farmer, and even a mom.  And, I'm gonna be a policeman and a fire fighter.  I can be all these things, because on each day i wll do a different job.  What do you want to be when you grow up?  If you are already growed up, what do you do on your job?  That's it.  Thank-you.

Hi Mini:

Well, I'm grown up, but right now I don't work because I'm in college.  I just got done taking a math course (algebra, yuck!) and I got an "A" in it.  I don't know how I did it, math for me is very hard.

I already baked some Christmas cookies and some fudge.  Are you going to bake cookies also?

I'm going to bake Christmas cookies and we already decorated our house.  I am a diabetic and can't have sugar so I have to make cookies with Splenda. Mom got me candy canes made with Splenda, too. You made a A in math that's good for you!  I had trouble with math yesterday but I finished it.  It's raining today and windy.  I'm going shopping but I don't know what for.  Mom has to buy more art paper.  Dad is on his way home so I have to get on my raincoat to go shopping.  I'll talk to you later.

Mini, I'm a diabetic also and let me tell you, the things that are made with Splenda are yummy!  I've had peach cobbler made with the brown sugar Splenda has which was really good.  I've got to go out today too.  My daughter, who lives in the state of Washington, wants me to mail her some of the cookies and fudge I made.  I also have to go get some blood taken out of my arm for a test called a phenotype.  That's where they draw blood, and use all the different medicines against the HIV and see which ones go past the medicine.  (Sorry, I don't know how to make it easier to understand).  That way, the doctor will know which medicines to put me on next.  I hope you have a good time shopping!

Hi Mini it's Sam again. My job is to guard the house when my daddy goes to work. My daddy says part of my job description (I don't know what that means) is not to bark at the postman. I also like to play catch. Would you play catch with me?

your friend,
Sam

I know the medicine tastes kinda nasty, but I have to take it.  Next fall, I'm going to play football. Dr. Muffin said I can if my bloodwork in May is good.  I want to learn to swim in the deep water.  I can jump off the diving board with my lifevest on but I can't jump off the diving board in the deep water without it or I will drown.   Someday, mom is going to teach me how to sew and do that hooking (mom screams, "CROCHETING!").  I have to take my bloodwork,too.  They take a needle and poke it into my arm right in the middle.  They don't put me to sleep but I don't say "ow!" or cry.  Then I get to pick a prize.  And I like pizza!  And I like cheetoes and bananas. I like icecream and brownies and i like cookies and jello and cake. What do you like to eat?

We went shopping today and got art paper and crayons.  I was looking in the store then we ate at Ryans.  I walked with mom in the craft store. We went into the game place. Now daddy has to go fix our lights. My favorite colors are pink, red, and yellow.  What are your favorite colors?
Have a really good dinner.  I don't know what we are having yet.

Hi Mini

My name is Pete.  I live in NJ but work in New York City right in Times Square.  My building is next to the one where the ball drops on New Years Eve!  There are so many people and so many lights. 

I don't have to take yucky medicine yet, but when I do I hope I will be as brave as you.   

I have a niece who is 6 years old.   This weekend we are going to see "How the Grinch Stole Christmas" on Broadway.  It is a musical based on the cartoon.   Have you ever seen the cartoon?  It is one of my favorites.

I also have a cat named Stewie.  He is 9months old and almost full grown.  I got him when he was very tiny.  I will send you pictures when I get home.

I hope you have a nice Christmas.  You are a very lucky girl to have a mommy and daddy that love you so much :)  Everyone on the message board loves you too.

Talk to you later
Pete

Hi Mini,

My name is Little Steve because I am really short. I live in Australia adn ot very far from Matty.

I like to swim too. When I was young my mummy used to make me wear a life vest too because I could not swim very well. Now that I am older I can swim a long way. Last year I did a really long swim and swam one and half miles in the ocean. It was very, very scary but I made it to the end.

You are really lucky because you get to play in the snow. It never snows where I live. I've never seen snow.

Little Steve

Steve, it's a good thing you didn't get eaten by a shark!  That would've been bad and you wouldn't have won the race that way.  Did you wear a diving suit?  My mom can not let us go in the ocean, I mean the deep side where the sharks are.  There are different kinds of animals in the ocean and all kinds of fish like puffer fish, electric fish, and poison fish.  If anyone steps on the poison fish, or rubs him, or touches it, they die.  I saw it on Discovery channel.  There are big fish, little fish, skinny fish,and fat fish.  Just like people.

Dear Lola, Sam, and Buddy,
My nana and paw-paw have 2 dogs.  She used to have more, but the black dogs died.  She has a new dog named Ginger.  Her other white dog's name is Kandi.  She has a cat named Sugar, too.  And we have lots of deer but we can't feed them or keep them.  They live in the woods.  And, guess what, I keep toys in my bed, too.  My brother's birthday is coming up on Sunday.  We are having his party on Saturday.  Mom's making breaksfast for the party at supper time.  We are going to sing Christmas songs to old people on tomorrow night.  We were supposed to go before but it was raining.  I have to go have school.

Bye and thank you!

Good morning to Mini from Sam. What is your favorite Christmas song? My favorite Christmas song is Silent Night or Frosty the Snowman.

How old will your brother be on his birthday? He is lucky to have a birthday so close to Christmas.

I keep my toys in my bed too. That way if I wake up in the night I can play with them. I like to bury a stuffed toy I have in the blankets. I pretend I am digging a hole. My favorite blanket was sent to me by my Aunt Kate all the way from England. The same Kate that gave you the marshmallow recipe. Kate is especially nice to dogs and children. I like her very much. I will show you a picture of me on Kate's blanket. That's all from me.

your friend,
Sam

Hey, Mini! 

It's Tim.  Guess what?  We've got lots of deer here, too.  They come through the yard a lot.  We sometimes have bears, too.  I think I may have a new black dog now.  He came to my porch a few days ago and has stayed.  I am glad he may keep the bears away, but I wish I could still see the deer.  His barking may keep them away, too.  It's OK, though because he is sweet and likes to run around the yard a lot.

I don't have a picture of him yet, but I will try to get one soon.
