Come, come, Sam. Would you like to be put up on a bench and poked and prodded in your most intimate places by six strangers all weekend?
Those whose homes are graced by the Turkish Van know them to be both lovely and loving. For those who have not met him yet, and of course you have, Sam, here
, and here
are photos of how our lovely Samwise takes to the bench. To extend to our Sam, Sam, the honors to which he has been endowed, his full name is Grand Champion, Grand Premier, Caravanserai Samwise. One does not earn both his GC and GP without showing well.
Samwise has been joined here on the beach by his half-sister, Galadriel
"), who is herself a Grand Champion. Poor Molly had to quickly evacuate her new home with Samwise and the rest of her family just two days after her arrival, thanks to hurricane Rita. She was not even allowed back into her new hometown by the authorities until two weeks had elapsed, basic utilities like water and electricity had been restored, and her home had been repaired.
She became a well-traveled cat all around the state of Texas in her efforts to keep ahead of Rita, but she is now back home, frustrated as the seagulls taunt her while she sits on her perch at a window overlooking the Gulf of Mexico.
Nice chatting with you again, Sam. As I am sure you knew already, we do love our Vans.
Now those Persians....
Keep well way down there, Sam.
