A perfect Easterpage 1 / 3
"Hey Spot," said Fawn. "Do you know that Easter is only a few weeks away?"
"I know," said Spot. "It has come up pretty quickly."
"Do you think Grampy will come for Easter?" asked Fawn.
"Oh Fawn," said Spot. "You know that Grampy lives in Ontario and we now live in British Columbia. There is about 4,000 km difference now."
"I guess," said Fawn. "But I miss Grampy so much. I wish I could see him."
"I know you do," said Spot. "Unfortunately though the Hansen's now live here in BC and so do we. You do like living here still, don't you?"
"Yes," said Fawn. "I do. I just wish I could see Grampy."
Fawn went into the barn and he took out a pen and a piece of paper. He started writing Grampy a letter. The letter read:
I was wondering if you wanted to come visit us in British Columbia for Easter. I really miss you a lot and would love to see you. Of course, so would everyone else, but me mostly.
Grampy, you would love it out here in BC. You would love the fresh air and the mountains. You would also love the fishing out here.
Please come for Easter, Grampy. You are the only one that can make a perfect Easter.
After Fawn had written the letter, he decided that he should probably not mail it to Grampy, after all.
"Spot is right," said Fawn. "Grampy lives so far away now. What am I thinking? Grampy won't be able to come for Easter."
Fawn left the letter on the table. Later on that day, Spot found Fawn's letter and she read it. Tears came to her eyes. She got on the phone and called Grampy right away.
"Spot!" exclaimed Grampy. "I'm so happy to hear from you. How is Fawn doing?"
"Well," said Spot. "He is actually the reason I am calling."
"Oh dear," said Grampy. "I hope he isn't sick."
"No," said Spot. "It is nothing like that. He just really misses you a lot. He was hoping that you would be able to come out here for Easter."
"Easter!" exclaimed Grampy. "Gee, that is only a few weeks away. Spot, I'm sorry, but I just don't think I'm going to be able to make it."
