: Dear Mr. Girty,
: Your terms are agreeable to me. I will gladly keep you up to your eyeballs in roast possum, and can easily clear a space for you in the corn crib. I have an extra blanket or two I'll leave there for your use, along with a bar of Grandma's Lye Soap, should you feel a desire to freshen up a bit. (There's a pump right outside, and the water isn't completely frozen yet...very invigorating!)
>>Wado. I am told that I need a cold shower more often than not [grin]
: You said in your last message, and I quote: "Oh no! If my Shawnee brothers find him first & he starts coughing and
: wheezing on them, they most assuredly will lift his scalp!" ...This seems a bit drastic for an asthma cure, but perhaps your Shawnee brothers know something I don't. Once lifted, if his wheezing stops, can the aforementioned scalp be plopped back down? And then, should he have subsequent attacks when he comes back to Mohicanland, do we simply lift the scalp again? Does this ventilate his sinuses? Or is it strictly a shock technique?
>>If my Shawnee brothers lift his hair, I assure you it will be a permanent "cure"
: As for wanting anything more from Miss Marcia than possum and pallet, a wise woman once said, "Be careful what you ask for...you just might get it." Let that be warning enough.
: I'll be waiting to hear any news of Dweebie that you may uncover. Your possum is strung up and waitin' for you!
: Yours Most Graciously,
: Miss Marcia
>>Wado Miss Marcia!
I do have to report that last night, as I was eluding some pesky Colonials, that I came across a busted pair of thick lense glasses, and putting my tracking skills to use, came to this conclusion, that Dweebie stumbling in the dark tripped over an exposed root, smacking his head into a tree, breaking his glasses in half, and then tumbled down the enbankment into the river.
I did not see him along the riverbanks, and as the Colonials were fast approaching had to leave in haste.
Does Dweebie know how to swim?
Since you have been so kind to me, I have presented some lavish gifts to my Shawnee brothers and asked them to keep an eye open along the riverbanks for Dweebie.
I'm sorry I couldnt bring you better news at this time.
Will be by presently for the possum [and the cold shower ;-) ]...
