There's the big package... Papa and Benjamin finally managed to get it over by the Christmas tree. Tonight they are out buying groceries for the holidays; first on their list is smoked salmon, followed by Leslie's favorite, pickled herring.
Mama Bear and Leslie are stringing popcorn and cranberries to decorate the tree... someone else (hiding under the couch) wants to get involved too. Leslie opens today's card from Mariko, a Japan Black Bear from the island of Kyushu. She is a cartoonist, and Leslie is an avid collector of her comics.
