: Hey Bird! What is it with you? What is this "grousings" and mutterings stuff? Can't you make up your mind about what kinda bird you are? Be you parrot, grouse, green chicken or as I prefer to think of you - Gnome turkey?
: Your feathers appear to be ruffled a bit. Gee, I am sorry for that. Here, let me help groom you a bit and soothe those ruffled feathers....and perhaps give you a pin-feather trim as they seem a bit longish (hehe).
: If a Gnome had a mind to, by the way, no cage would provide you any real protection ya know. It is an illusion of safety. In fact, might be a dang good idea! That-a-way there is no danger from that enormously wicked beak of yours while we lower cage and all into the boiling cauldron. Oh my how kind of your Person to provide a lovely device with which to easily par-boil you and lift you from the roiling waters afterward.
: I did like your song though Basil *dancing a happy Gnome dance with his pot in hand - humming along with tune*
: I seem to remember that song dimly from the days when gnomes wore bell bottomed lederhosen.
: Anticipatory Gnome
My Dear Delightful Gnome -
You are displaying a genius for creative cookery! Absolutely a GENIUS! Unfortunately, I do not have a cauldron large enough to accomodate the cage as well as the green chicken,and neither of us is big enough to lower the cage in and out if I had one. So perhaps we should consider another method of bird boiling.
In addition, I think Miss Polly Anna suspects something. As you are well aware by now, she did not meet me at the chestnut grove this afternoon. Possibly it is taking her longer to carve the chicken-knapper proof cage than she had anticipated. Why don't you just pull on your little bell-bottom lederhosen and yodel your way over there to peer in her parlor window and see what she is doing with Basil? It's nearly dark, and you can slither around the house behind the bushes without being seen, as long as you are sly about it. Let me know what you find.
