Tommee Tiger's Travel Log
July 2007Strypes met a monkey named George at the Hannaford at Delaware Plaza.  Together they were purchased by Miss Miller and taken to her home in Clarksville.  Strypes was renamed Tommee Tiger because being a mascot for the St. Thomas second graders is such an important job!

August 2007Tommee Tiger spent two weeks in York Beach, Maine at the ocean with Miss Miller's family.  He enjoyed playing in the sand with his friends Curious George and Skye the Eagle.  They all helped Miss Miller and her father make a sand castle.    A little girl named Madison, from Florida, came over to join in the fun!  She brought her Little Mermaid.

Here are his travel photographs.  If you "click" on them, they become larger!
