Greetings to all Citizenry of Mohicanland,
I have returned from an arduous adventure tracking down She-Who-Tracks,-etc. for the second meeting of the CCCC (Cunning Clever Cooper Clan). I had the great honour of presenting to She-etc. Herself some of the King's tea, brought direct from the Island our Homeland (having paid the King's high duty for said tea, against which I hope there may some day be a great revolt). She-etc. in turn rewarded me with the results of extensive corn-grinding (and had admirably swept the floor of her cabin), and we had a fine meal together
with a cup of strong cup of tea, nice and hot
(even if it was done in a coffee pot).
Oops, there's that Trader Rhyming gene coming to the fore again.
Most unfortunately, Pilgrim Penny was not able to respond to our smoke signals, so we are going to have to reconvene in due course, as my travels are sure to take me 'round to She-etc.'s frontier cabin (assuming I have had enough successful trading to afford some means of transport and tolls, as She-etc. lives WAY WAY down the pike, which is an expensive proposition), and we hope PP will be receiving smoke signals again.
Meanwhile, the CCCC has arrived at a plan of action to amass our learnings about Cooperisms and to fill the voids, as we lack knowledge of many Cooperisms, and in time to present Mohicanites the results of our labours so that they, too, may share in the joy of more Cooperisms.
I might add that She-etc. has the most extraordary understanding of Le Longue Carabine, that one wonders how much longer he can avoid falling into her clutches. She-etc. quite amazes me.
So, my friends, adieu,
Post a Followup
