My "OCTAVIA" - the octopus latern,
on the front page of The NOW
You could have knocked me over with a feather!
Oh... yes!
If you think I am making a big deal out of it, I am.
Front page and, "good news" ?

I found out at during the Festival last night that Octavia was also on the cover of

The 24 Daily ... I know....!!!!

How thrilling she's absolutely adorable!! Cartoons anyone? Very cute!! You should feel honored after the beach wall fiasco....I miss the old wall...it's not the same down there!

Hugs Giggles

Thank you sooooooooooo much Giggles!
It means a lot to have word from town - good to know I have some friends out there...

Others have made similar comments regarding the wall.

It looks as if the Universe gave life to Octavia in exchange - I hear she will be "getting around".

Of course, I will be sending all sorts of smoke signals indicating particulars :)

Hug back to you

Raufie dearest:
You said it!

Although my name was not "disclosed", Octavia has become an easily recognized "celebrity"... :)
Widely photographed, if I may add - lol

I loved hearing the happy tones behind and around me while I was intalling them. Great, great feeling!

Lots of love and hugs my friend
