: Greetings, all! Thought I'd drop a line while Mrs. O'Reilly and I step outside to rest our eyes after readin' and mullin' over all this great intellectual stuff comin' from Mohicanland. I must admit I'm proud to be livin' amongst such intelligent folk, although I have to admit I've got to have Aunt Winnie send me my old history books so I can brush up. I've gotten a wee bit muzzy on history in recent years, what with learnin' the ways of the frontier and wenchin' techniques and Scottish songs and how to make a haggis and all the other necessities of life...but in the meantime Mrs. O'Reilly and I would like to invite any and all right over to Bumppo's. We've rearranged the tables into circles like one of those intellectual espresso-sippin' coffeehouses in old Europe and we'd be pleased if any and all would gather and carry on some discussin' there. Plenty of cider, Glenlivet, corn liquor, or just plain coffee...or whatever stimulates yer thinkin'!
: Of course there will be still room in the back for billiards, darts, or table dancin' (that's for you, Doc M...) We've already gotten a wee discussion started, although I'm afraid Dweebie, Rev. Wheelock and that Nice Huron Delivery Boy may come to blows over the finer points of Platonic discourse. Who woulda thought? Hope to see ye soon...(and oh yes, Sheriff Twigg, thanks for acceptin' the crock of marmalade and the shortbread to bail Dweebie out...)
Dear Red Haired Lass,
I am ever so glad you did not take on the lowly job as the towne crier and are blazing a trail of success at Bumppo's!
Well, these attacks of intellectualism and soap box talks... they do not last too long, and besides, makes one might thirsty.
So I shall join you at Bumppo's and keep my mouth busy sipping Glenlivet and listening to the songs of the fairy folk...
No peep shall come out of this TowneCrier forevermore!
