SALLY, WHERE DO YOU ACTUALLY LIVE?
I live in the mine, deep below ground. This is my home! I love splashing about in the salt lake, sliding through the tunnels and singing songs. The echo down here is amazing! And it doesn't bother me at all that it's so dark down here, since I even have my own helmet with a miner's lamp on the front!

SALLY, HOW CAN YOU KNOW SO MUCH ABOUT THE MINE?
I know my way around because it's my home! Just like you know every nook and cranny of your room, I know all the secret passageways down here. I also know lots of stories about the olden days, since Rudi told them to me. And some of them are really exciting!

SALLY, DOESN'T IT GETTING BORING ALL ALONE INSIDE THE MOUNTAIN?
Actually, I really like it down here. But you are right, I guess. Sometimes it does get a little boring. It doesn't matter what you're doing, it's always more fun with friends. That's why I would be thrilled if you would come and visit me, so that we can enjoy a few exciting adventures together.

SALLY, DON'T YOU EVER GET COLD DOWN HERE?
Not really. My thick down jacket protects me nicely from the cold - just like your winter jacket. Plus I add a special oil that protects me from the moisture, so the water droplets simply roll off my back.. quite practical, right?
