HEY! I SAY HEY!! YOUR FORGOT SOMEBODY!
Don't gnomes rate around here???? We are the ones keeping things going ya know. We tend the forests and brooks and meadows and farms and homes etc. While you mortals have a span of maybe 80 years if you are lucky, we gnomes are only reaching maturity by 200 years or so.
No request for tender, fresh, wild musrooms on a silver plate?
Not even a request for some fine butt armor as protection against Doc M's penchant for mounting gnomes on stakes?
Pshaw! *kicking dirt and dust at her and pouting*
: : : Happy New Year, MohicanLand! Wow! It is so nice to see things getting closer to being back to normal on the board. My thoughts have been with all of you. I am looking forward with great anticipation to this new year. Gathering seems painfully distant. Fortunately, we still have the 'Deerslayer' discussions to look forward to, as well as, the Horseman (just got my copy!). Also, to tide me over 'til Gathering, I have 'On the Trail( wooooohooooo!)and many new, wonderful, nice, smart, informative, kind, funny, entertaining and helpful friends to email.
: : : Thank you all, especially Rich and Elaine, for making my little life alot more FUN!!
: : : BTW, Jo, I made a great trade with Sassy as she was on her way home from Bumppo's. It's a sling for throwing popcorn from the back row at Gathering. Fancy one it is, too. Black with white ribbon and silver...:)

: : That`s right! I remember you being there Dana. You were trying to get those Gathering secrets from me all night. HA! Thought the brandy was going to loosen my tongue did you? (although I felt like Billy`s little friends had walked all over my tongue with muddy boots, when I woke up.) Now back to this sling thing. Just what will you take in trade for this, um, weapon?
: : Clabert
: Well, Clabert, I appreciate the simple things in life. A canoe ride would be a fine trade as far as I'M concerned. Howsever, I'm afraid I can't trade without taking my fellow Bumppo girls into condideration. We are a loyal lot ( except for Doc Mary...we HAVE to be nice to her), and I sense a distict advantage here. If I have learned ANYTHING from Doc M, it is to press ones advantage when ever one can.
: For Miss Gaylee...Any and all gossip associated with Natty Bumppo with be delivered firstly and directly to Miss Gaylee.
: For Sassy...how about that that bottle of Old Crone's 'last batch' you 'found' at Bumppo's.
: For Jo...that nice green blanket, so she can trade for a bottom bunk at the next Gathering.
: For Danalee...one dozen croissants dipped in chocolate, then almonds, delivered on a silver tray(woo woo woo).
: Also, to be included on the silver tray (woo woo woo), one dozen croisants with ham and cheese for Rebecca.
: For Doc M... the silver tray (woo woo woo)Good luck with THIS one...
: That should do it. Deal?
: Dana S.
