Early last week Maxwell dropped his favorite red ball in the pond. Bruce tried his best to rake it out, but it was gone. I quickly bee lined it to the closest store, and bought him another, but no, even though it was the same color red, it was not like his beloved red ball. He made do, but voiced his opposition and disappointment. The ball just did not bounce right or have the appropriate weight. It smelled funny. I went online to look for a red ball just like the one we purchased in Richmond. Yes! I found a place to purchase one just like the red ball he dropped in the pond. We proceeded to buy two. They came in the mail today. Maxwell is very well pleased. We even tested him by throwing the other ball, by sly substitution. But when he caught up to and grabbed it, he dropped it in disgust, and came back for the real McCoy.
