: : : : : Dear Gnome Dome,
: : : : : So, we'll keep the mushrooms, but bein' as yer providin' the meat, plus sage and onion stuffin', I guess I'll save the leeks for makin' up a pot o' my great-grandmother's famous leek sherbet for dessert, okay? Any special brand o' ale ye favor?
: : : : : She Who Tracks
: : : : Well I am kinda partial to Bass Ale, but any true ALE will do.
: : : : I don't go in for that panther pee most folks drink. Pilsner
: : : : I think they call it. Blecht!! Yuk. The meatier the better
: : : : when it comes to ale. If you feel like you have had a full meal after drinking a pint, then you have had ALE!!!
: : : : Maybe if we feed a little Taddy Porter to that dang parrot he

: : : : Gnome Dome
: : : Dear Gnome Dome,
: : : I'm more in favor o' settin' a saucer o' Miss Marcia's Mint Julep concoction beside his perch. He doesn't seem the kind of parrot who would go for the preferred refreshments o' common tavern folk, but bein' a elite kind o' bird, might could be enticed to wet his whistle in a upper-class bev'rage. Far's I know, there's no surer route to fallin' off yer perch than one o' Miss Marcia's Mint Juleps. What say ye?
: : : She Who Tracks
: : Well..........that would put Miss MMMMMarcia in collusion with us in subverting the parrot into the pot. Don't know if she would go for that, but if'n you can talk her into it, sure! Give it a rip!
: : Gnome Dome
: Dear Gnome Dome,
: Don't plan to put her in collusion with us. Was thinkin' more along the lines o' pocketin' a thimblefull of the Julep clanDEStinely whilst imbibing during one o' her afternoon teaparties on her veranda. Howsever, that would put off our dinner for a while. Depends on how much ye want green parrot as part o' the stew! Of course, this all depends on whether or not we can get Miss Marcia out o' her current fix after she gunned down half o' Mohicanland on her front porch today. Seems like nothin' ever is easy around here.
Yes....I had wondered what that was whistling over my head and through the brush behind me. Buck and ball eh? Sometimes it DOES pay to be a mere 2.5 feet tall!
