These guys were big, about 12 inches long. There are sturdy because Regina puts them out in her yard. She lives in an almost-country area and has raccoons hanging around her pond (her pond fish long since disappeared, they were definitely a canape for some animals' party).
They went to Regina for Christmas gifts because Regina gives Susan an hour-long massage 3 times a month. Unfortunately, it seems like every time Susan comes home from Regina, all mellowed out, a crisis of some sort has arrived on the scene. Crisis? Like I can't figure out how to make the mouse work. Why is the washer not draining? What am I going to have for lunch? So she sighs and says "Well, there goes that massage payment down the drain."
