ANOTHER SETBACK FOR SHIMY HIME.

Shimy Hime, recovering from two recent accidents, suffered another setback this morning.   Gramps #3924, flown from Athol to a hospital outside Lafayette, CA, to offer comfort to long-time friend Shimy Hime, apparently sneezed after a laughing fit without covering his nose and mouth, blowing Shimy off her sponge bed.  The sponge had been selected from a dozen sponges flown in from Tampon Springs, Florida, because of its contour, a perfect fit for Shimy’s body.
