Good Day, My Dear Miss Cooper!
: My goodness, but your garden is just a sight this Spring! Never saw such a riot of color. You have such a talent for making things bright.
>Why, thank y'all ever so much! I do try to add a touch of beauty to the world wherever I can!
:Do you suppose you could spare a small bouquet to send over to the hospital for Miss Paddle Tale?
>Yes, indeed! I think maybe some squawkblossom and a bit of featherwort will do nicely. I'll cut some directly!
:I hear she got herself caught in a hollow log and had to get hauled out by the feet. Such an embarassing scene, and she's done nothing but squawk and yelp, and hasn't said a coherent thing since!
>That's what I heard. Sassy stopped by to tell me the news. Said they found Miss PT wandering in circles, spitting bits & pieces of crackers all over the place, and spluttering some nonsense about alien canoeists! Sounds like somebody spiked her water trough if y'all ask me!
:Dr. Markus Well Bee is attending her, and he's fit to be tied trying to figure out how she got herself stuffed in there -
>That IS a puzzler, isn't it? You don't suppose she really DID run into aliens, do you? Good Golly Olly! Hope I don't find any strange-acting and odd-looking creatures hanging about my Downhome Kitchen! 'Course, come to think of it, it'd be pretty difficult to find creatures any stranger looking than Old Crone, Miss PaddleTale, Dweebie Day-Lewis, and some of the other resident Mohicanlanders, so I reckon I'm safe!
:the hospital's been trying to locate Sheriff Twigg to file a report, but here it is going on noon, and nobody's seen hide nor hair of him since The Bee Holder beeheld him heading out toward Pilgrim Penny's cabin last evening. Where do you suppose that man can have got to!
>Excuuuuuse me? The Bee Holder saw Benton WHERE??? WHEN??? Are you speaking of MY Benton? I just can't imagine this! He and I have an understanding, doncha know! I'll have to check this out with Sassy! Mayhap she can shed some light on this rumor! At least, for Benton's sake, I HOPE it's only a rumor! Hmmmmph!
: Well, I must be running along. Toodleoo, dearie!
So long, yerself, Toots!
Yours Ever So Graciously,
