Well Fred, here I am again. I just noticed that you have had more than 19,000 (that is NINETEEN THOUSAND!) people looking at you in the past 5 and a half months! Wow...you are a very special little guy! Of course your little reindeer friend from Norway (oops, maybe Finland) is special also but we haven't seen too many photos of him. Perhaps he is a little shy.

And, the 19,000 are on the Forum....that doesn't include the adorable photos Joey took of you in Norway!

When, oh when, did a little monkey who LOVES Leonard Cohen achieve such an exalted status!

Don't get a big head. As the military greats were returning in their glory to Rome, there would be a slave on their chariot constantly saying "remember, you are only a monkey..oops, man".

Hi Fred,

As a BIG thank you to Mr. Cohen, DrHGuy posted the most wonderful video of Leonard's tour throughout Europe this summer, and it included a few snippets of the earlier US tour. One of them had the picture of you in Oakland sitting on the stage with the polka-dot blouse (yes, you did like those wild women ;-) ). It's been awhile since we've seen you and your cute little face made me smile! Not much longer for you to tour and then you can rest in one place for awhile; however, I hope we get to see you before the tour is over.

Miss you,
"Aunt" Di :D

Linda,

I was fortunate to talk to a number (more than 2) of people and one of them did tell me :D .
I did talk about Fred on two different occasions ;-) :D .

Kindest regards,
Mary

Photo of Ned, Fred's little brother who joined him in Columbus, Ohio
The pen next to him gives an idea of his size.
Fred is easily 3Xs larger.

And whom LC appears to be holding close to his heart (wishful thinking on my part)
Sorry for the poor quality of photo

Ohhhh... Mary, that is so sweet :D !

Leonard really IS holding him close to his heart. The little boy in the man will never die if the man remains open... and Leonard has remained open.

Your hometown has brought you many rewards, Mary :D :D :D !!!


Love,
Lizzy
