: My Dear Miss Katie of Arbroath, Welcome to Mohicanland! It just so happens there is a
: vacant cabin right across the street from my Famous Downhome Kitchen, and just enough
: downwind to allow the smell of my Famous Downhome Fuu-uuuudge to waft thataway! I
: would be enchanted to have you as a neighbor, and have a nice welcoming tea party
: planned in your honor. We will have some lovely Scotch eggs, and scones, and I'll drizzle the
: grits 'n' grease with some nice butterscotch topping...but we won't be havin' no steenking
: haggis!! Sorry. There's a limit to even Miss Marcia's hospitality, doncha know! But other
: than that, I hope you will come and enjoy getting to know your fellow Mohicanlanders over
: a nice cuppa tea. And I'll be certain to wear my tartan apron...how's that?
> Well, thankee right kindly, Miss Marcia! That cabin will do very nicely, doncha know! Sounds like just the place to set up my 'establishment'! Katie's Quilts - Quilts is the name, bed covers is my game!! So - I shall be looking for some of Simon Girty's *used* eagle feathers to 'do' my duvets!
And I thank y' right kindly for your gracious invite to the welcoming tea party bein' held in ma honour!! I declare living downwind of your Famous Downhome Fuu-uuuudge sounds mighty - interesting!! But no haggis, indeed!! I could never catch any o' the dang rascals either!! Fu-uuuudge will do nicely, ma'am!!
I look forward to acceptin' your hospitality!
Your grateful new neighbour,
: PS...how does one pronounce ceilidh? And is it something where one might be encouraged
: to dance the Mohicanland Limbo? ;o)
> The 'Limbo'? Why, yes Ma'am, it goes very nicely to a little known tune called 'The Gael'!! It's a right catchy li'l tune and I'll soon have y'all hummin' it!
