Special Delivery of No 12


The Hitty girls are getting the hall ready for their meeting. Today a couple with their baby from South Africa are coming to speak to them about their way of life in South Africa.
Suddenly, a parcel drops from an aeroplane right in front of Kowhai Corner Hall! The aeroplane does not stop and continues flying away from the hall.

Alana quickly notifies Steve Sunshine and he arrives with Greylegs and the cart to collect the parcel. Steve tells the Hitty girls that a new boy has arrived known as number 12.  His now given name is Todd and he will rest at Steve and Stephie’s house until he has recovered and then he will be introduced to all the Hitty girls. Steve leaves the girls wondering what the new boy, Todd will look like.
Alana sees the South African family arriving and goes and to meet them. She welcomes them to the Hitty's Helping Hands meeting at Kowhai Corner Hall.

The Father  tells the Hitty girls that they live a nomadic life and  live in a tribe. They are very pleased to have been invited to speak at the meeting and are looking forward to be shown around Kowhai Tree Farm.
 After they have both spoken and Alana thanks them for speaking they have a milo or orange juice.

Hannah arrives with a plate of hokey pokey biscuits and a plate of meringues with whipped cream. The family are going to stay with Hannah and Luke.

Editor’s Note: The male doll has on his back in a circle, Made in South Africa, Johannesburg, Cat 22, Pml ----1321. I can’t see any identification on the female doll.

The Unwanted Lamb

Brian, the Vet was at the consulting rooms one morning when a farmer arrived with a lamb. The farmer tells Brian that the mother to the lamb has died and he does not have time to hand rear the lamb and asks Brian if he knows of anyone who could care for the lamb.
Brian replies that he will ring Selena Sunshine and ask if she would like to care for the lamb. Selena is delighted to receive Brian’s phone call inquiring whether she would like to care for the lamb and of course says she will care for the lamb.

Selena loves the lamb as soon as she sees it and thanks Brian for bringing it to Kowhai Tree Farm.  Selena works and stays in the city Monday to Thursday so she asks Ethel and Jill if they will bottle feed the lamb Monday to Thursday while she is working.

Ethel and Jill accept to feed the lamb and come to Kowhai Tree Farm where Selena shows them how to bottle feed the lamb and to make it comfortable in the barn. The lamb will enjoy the company of the hens.

Selena notices that one of the hens eggs have hatched. Selena rings Brenda and invites her and her five children to come and visit in the afternoon to see the new lamb and chickens. Spring is such a nice time of the year with the arrival of young animals.
