New Business Cards

Soon I will be making Petey new business cards with his blog and Facebook information. Also it will have my information to get your own Petey. I usually ask for $2.00 just for the Petey's part of the money is used to purchase more walnuts so that I can continue to keep Petey alive.

Petey's Room

This is Petey's Room! These shoe boxes have at least one or more scenes in them. Yesterday while arranging Petey's Room I could not find him on his Harley. But after searching all day last night around 10 pm I check in one of these boxes and found him. 
He was hangin out with Golfer and OSU Petey!
