: My goodness! Bent has just called on me to let me know that Miss Paddletale and that there French gal are towing Old Crone's wattle hut back to shore, and are in need of emergency refreshments for Old Crone, herself, and that silly nitwit, GnomeDome. Guess I'll grab a bucket o' mint juleps and a platter of my Famous DownHome Fuu-uuuuudge, and head on down to the river bank. I don't know what's going on, but apparently Old Crone had a close call...something about being battered around a bit yesterday and then having a run-in with a deadly legless one (Miss Kate don't like fer me to call 'em by other names...too creepy for her taste!) And speaking of Miss Kate, hope she'll show up with a couple of her toasty warm quilts for this crew. They'll most likely need all the comfort they can get.
: I'm off to do good deeds...which reminds me, wonder if Polly Ann will be there, too. She does SEW like to spread goodness and cheer everywhere she goes.
: Yours Most Hurriedly,
: Miss Marcia
I guess this means we got to rebuild that gol-durned wattle hut again. Bout this time, I could build one in my sleep. Glad the Old Crone and Miss Paddletale and Miss Jeanne and The Gnome all safe again, though, I suppose some the worse for wear. Looks like Miss Paddletale's done gone and lost all her feathers again. Seems to be no way we can keep that duck decent! I could stand mebbe one week around here without trippin' over a naked duck!
Where's those mint juleps? The refugees from the river aren't the only ones could benefit from one of your magic concoctions right now. *Grumblin' and mutterin' to himself*
