Today in Pen Pal: A tin cup







On August 10, Em and her friend Small Bill found a cup in the shallow waters.

He picked the cup out of the net and turned it over in his hands. Every dent and bang was greeny black, and there was a tiny crab inside.

It sure looked old, but once a thing’s been asleep in salty water for a while, it gets hard to tell its true age.

“Look,” Small Bill said, showing me the bottom of the cup. There was a bird stamped in it, a bird with hunched shoulders, perching on a key—a crow.

I really love the chance to do this--to draw, to find images and things--related to the story. I'm glad people enjoy looking at them as much as I like sharing them.

Re: anyone seen my lost word?
This happens all the time to me while typing--my fingers don't keep up, and letters (pluralizing s's mainly) and sometimes whole words get left off :-/
