Gardening at Witzend

A VOICE FROM THE GARDEN OF WITZEND: Mi Lord! Mi LORD! 

RATTUS: Who in the blazes is yelling from the garden at this hour?



TEA RAT: Well that's Mr. Philpotts....

RATTUS: And who, pray tell, is Mr. Philpotts?

TEA RAT: Well, he's our new gardener of course, since you have taken to sitting in the garden rather than weeding it!

RATTUS: Our new gardener, of course, well forgive me, I should have known we had a gardener...

MR. PHILPOTTS: Mi Lord! Mi Lord! I've found something!

RATTUS: MI LORD?

TEA RAT: Well, you know, one has to demonstrate to the help who's in charge and all that....

RATTUS: Right. (Rattus roles his eyes)



TEA RAT: Yes Philpotts, what have you found? CRIKEY! RATTUS, COME STRAIGHT AWAY! Oh I don't believe it, could it be?

Mr. Philpotts: It looks like an airplane, Mi Lord, like the poot-poots of old Nowhere!



TEA RAT: RATTUS, COME AT ONCE!

RATTUS: Yes, MI LORD!(eyes roll WAY back)



RATTUS: I don't believe it. I thought we crashed that contraption years ago...



TEA RAT: She's a splendid vessel!

RATTUS: SHE HAS TWO OF HER PROPELLER WINGS MISSING, AND HER TWO FRONT WHEELS! You wouldn't be able to stay in the air or land properly. Give it up, son.



TEA RAT: But look, her back wheel is still intact....can't we call on Mozes to go into his tool shed and fix her up?

RATTUS: Give it up

TEA RAT: But how will we get around for more summer magic fun? Bonie went back to Italy, and how are we ever going to transport ourselves beyond our imaginations?



Suddenly, Rattus feels a snort of hot air over his shoulder...

RATTUS: Tea Rat, come quickly!



RATTUS: TEA RAT! HELP!



TEA RAT: Whoah....whoah big feller....Rattus....shhhhhh....stay still...



TEA RAT (in a whisper): Rattus....my wishes have been answered...meet our new mode of transportation, our new friend...

Hello there...  My name is Bebe... Welcome to Nowhere...  Who would you be?

AND 

HERE I AM dearest Dutchess:


Tea Rat: 

If you are wondering what happened to my beautiful rat-brown fur and my neon green boots, I'll tell ya, it takes a lot of energy to exude aqua blue
to become a fantastic butterfly! As you can see, I am not done with my colors. I plan to add purple polka dots and black trim!

I'm ready to play. Let's fly away on the wings of the travelin' sun. Come on Rattus, how about you. What's in your bag of tricks?

Enter Peter Rabbit

Tea Rat: Where is my lead man? WHERE'S MY STAGE MANAGER?

Rattus: Take it easy son, we're not making a western here; he was just waiting for your cue.

Tea Rat: Where's my narrator?

Rattus: Just click on the music son, and everything is ready at your command!

Tea Rat: A C T I O N!


 And Peter ran straight away into an obliging garden

and "borrowed" a cart




and loaded up his chocolate eggs 

and one special egg of gold

for one lucky child at heart.



His steed couldn't keep up with his enthusiasms-

enthusiasms...



then a few steps up the path, there it was. The book of

Peter Rabbit's Easter.



TADAH!




Tea Rat: NO NO NO! Do it again. This time, put more feeling into the reading and...

Rattus: (please excuse Tea Rat everyone; he's been snacking on marshmallow chicks all afternoon, and they're loaded with sugar!)

HAPPY SPRING!

Bebe's flower sale. Happy spring!

Follow the road to Nowhere and pick your favorite flowers... It's the first day of spring.. The birds  are singing, the sun is warm,  it is a beautiful day..  
Love,
Bebe

Rattus:

I say old man, are you catching a cold?



Tea Rat:

No...I think I shall cry...


because 

that woman who draws us

is celebrating her 33rd wedding anniversary this weekend!
 


Rattus:

Whatever shall we do to help celebrate?

Tea Rat:

Hmmmmm....




It's impossible even for me 

story-telling rat extraordinaire,

to tell the story

of such a remarkable journey, compadre.

Meet me in Nowhere for the Halloween Party! Love Bebe


Please take a seat... Off we go, up the hill, to the Castle of Butter.
It is going to be a marvelous Haloween Costume party!
There is plenty of room for everyone.
Miss Moussie,  Tea Rat , Rattus,  Dimity Doormouse and all our Nowhere friends.
It is quite a long ride up the hill, so bring snacks of your choice.
I will be waiting
love,
Bebe
  


It takes a lot of muscle to get up that hill, so my friends,
Jock, Inky, Dinky and Do came along to help.

 
 
Get in line, Miss Moussie, Tea Rat and Rattus..  You wanted to bob for apples Tea Rat, so here we go...... for the Apple Bobbing Contest.
Don't fall in!
 
 
 
 
TEA RAT:

HI -OH SILVER! It's the Lone Rat and his trusty steed, 

SILVER!

Tea Rat:

Rattus old man, where are you - we are 
approaching the Castle of Butter. 

RATTUS:

(Rustling noise)

I'm CAUGHT on this shrubery along the path and I can't...

TEA RAT:

Oh chappy, you must be careful to not 
get your costume caught on things. We want to present
properly!

RATTUS: 

Are you positive, absolutely POSITIVE that no one will
recognize me?

TEA RAT: 

I am POSITIVE! You are so well-disguised old man, no a single
inhabitant of Nowhere will know who you are.

RATTUS: 

This frock is itching me....how long must I masquerade in this and I'm caught up again on the brambles here.....


TEA RAT:

SHHHHH! Let the masquerade BEGIN!
