Retiring Update

30 Apr

So, Mavis and I had a heart to heart about the retiring thing.  She says it’s because she feels like she’s past her prime.  It’s also because she hasn’t been performing as often as she used to, and Gertrude is getting old.  In February, Mavis will be a wopping 104 years!  Gertrude will be 15 in September.  That’s ancient for a hippo!  I was able to convince Mave that she’s only as old as her mind thinks she is.  If she continues to “think” young, then she will feel young.  Besides, she does not look 104 years old!  After our discussion, she seemed in much higher spirits.  Mavis loves her job, folks.  You know she won’t retire until she kicks the bucket!  Love, Juniper
