: : : ~~~~~~~~~~~~
: : : SHE!!
: : : Where have you been? Thought we may have lost you to the Hurons! You seem sorta funny..have you been adding those funny mushrooms to your venison stew again?
: : : ..Jeri
: : Did somebody mention MUSHROOMS??????? Where! Lemme at'em!!!
: : GnomeDome
: puff puff puff puff
: Danged wet wood! Can't get a good smoke signal goin' for love nor money!
: puff puff PLUUUUUUUUUUME!
: Ah, there it goes. Better signal now. Hurons and mushrooms? Sartain it was a passel o' both. Strippin' bark off birch tree to write whole story. Got fri'ndly Indian to send it by. Look for Ottawa Runner soon.
: puff puff . . .She . . .pfffffffft
Howdy do, 'She'! T'is grand to hear from you!!
Good grief, girl, we've been worried about you!! T'is many days since we last had word of your trek North and fear'd you'd fallen foul of those damned Mingoes that hang around the George Road!!
So - they weren't Mingoes, they were Huron?!! That would tally with the news that come in by some trappers, who were re-equipping down to the French Trader's. Seems there are Huron 'splinter' groups harrying and harrassing honest folks going about their own business!!
Take care, 'She'! Hope to hear from that Ottawa runner soon! (Hey, your 'troubles' wouldn't have anything to do with Hector, would they?? He DOES have a knack for getting into a pickle!!)
Be talkin' soon, 'She'... and - stay clear o' them mushrooms...
*Puff Puff Puff Puff - how do you spell mushrooms?? Who's the Blanket Operator here?? Oh for crying out loud!! M-u-s-h-r-o... *
