Good Afternoon, My Dear Miss Katie,
I must make this rather brief, as I have a feelin' in my bones that there's a BAAAAAD wind a-blowin' down here in the SOUTHERN part of Mohicanland, and you know Miss Marcia always ends up hidin' under the bed when the lightning starts, so...to be brief:
yes, DO come by about 4-ish for our tea, if the bridge don't go and the creek don'r rise, as they say. We've LOTS to catch up on. For one thing, I will be most interested to hear further details about your experience down to Mervin's Meretricious Mercantile. I DO believe we are not talking about the same woman, at all. MY accoster wasn't 7' tall, nosirreeee...more like 7' WIDE, if you ask me. Sure felt like there was a lot o' HEFT behind that elbowin' & grabbin'!! So that means there's more'n one of 'em. Likely they run in pairs, doncha know!
And I want to hear more about that ole guy & his two sons, and all the troubles THEY manage to get themselves into. Scroundrels, I reckon...though I have heard tell they are pretty easy on the EYES, all three of 'em! (Not that *I*, being a genteel and RE-fined Southern lady, would LOOK, you understand!! Twouldn't be seemly, now would it?)
Anyway, I'll start on those huckleberry tarts, and get the teapot warmin', and be waitin' for you on my front porch. But DO keep watch on the weather, Dear Heart...don't want you arriving all soppy wet, or worse yet, gettin' lost or injured in a nasty storm. Be sure to bring along a parasol, and some dry slippers for your toesies! Until then,
Yours Most Graciously,
PS...I LOVE the sound of that quilt you have made for She-Who-Tracks! I just might have to avail myself of your fine stitchery services soon. I, myself, prefer the culinary arts to anything involving a needle and thread...pointy implements frighten my delicate sensibilities SO, doncha know!
