but must be remembered;

Meet the Artists


The long-awaited

Summer Concert with Bebe

Penny White from Angelsdoor

shall commence

in a few summer days.

We can't tell you a specific date

for 

summer is a timeless notion 

that exists only somewhere

in Nowhere.

Therefore

you are invited as sweet Bebe has proposed

to tumble into Nowhere

flop onto a blanket on the grass

and let your Nowhereian ear wander.

BUT! 

Before the music begins

you must

Meet the Artists:

Introducing Wink

anita pelayo rivera  - Wink by Penny White

who began his studies at the prestigious

Academy of Mus Musculus Music

This shall be his first concert on the green.

Our second guest is the three-time award winning 

pianist 

DOT

who can tickle them 88s like no one can.

anita pelayo rivera Dot by Penny White

and of course

a proper summer concert must include veteran

pianist

harpist

conductor 

(who has passed on the baton to Bebe for this event)

writer

composer

and tealogian

TEA RAT, Th.D

anita pelayo rivera Tea Rat by Penny White

whose musical abilities extend to the 

uncanny skill

of playing the classics 

with one hand clutching his tea cup.

So there you have it.

Let a few summer breezes pass

and come back to enjoy 

Bebe's Summer Concert

on the green.

Summer Concert with Bebe

Tap, tap, tap!   Ok.  Where is Tea Rat?   The concert should start soon, and I hear from a good source that Tea Rat is a divine  piano player.
There may have been a slight problem getting the piano over the hills, but I am sure he will be here shortly..  
I hope you all will come gather around and listen to the concert.
See you soon
Love,
Bebe

Renovations



Night is lifting 

and so are the memories 

of 

The Castle of Butter's past.

Tea Rat has taken it upon

HIMSELF

to look into his tool chest



and bring Butter Castle

back to its former state.

He built a new chimney


and applied the stone and brick

on his own

while Rattus repaired 

the chandeliers.



(Thank you Penny and Jeri for your suggestions!)

Wandering and Wondering


The night had fallen 

but a luminous companion in the sky

led the two travelers toward

the frozen ledge of a horizon.

There, situated as if on a looking glass

stood an abandoned timbered castle.



"I'm beginning to wonder old man, where I've seen 

this dwelling."

"Has your mind wandered away from you son, have you

forgotten the spring of your wonderings? 

This is

BUTTER CASTLE."


"But of course old man; this was our destination

the day I faced the giant, the day we met 

Bebe and Miss Moussie.

Our travels began somewhere...oh, where

were we going, please remind me."

We were going Nowhere and to our great delight

it took us 

anywhere 

we wanted to be."

**********

Wishes for a wondrous 2017

to 

Penny

The Dutchess

Jackie

Christel

Jeanie

and to all who have passed this way.

The garden is glowing




with the dancing wicks 

of 

imagination

and 

celebration.





It's in this garden

eight years ago

that I met a mouse

But this mouse

did not scurry from one end of my patch to another

but rather

from one side of the Atlantic

to this side of 

Nowhere.

Dank goede vriend

for telling us the story 

of a Big Bear and a Little Mouse

for sparking the creation of 

Tea Rat and Rattus

for entertaining Bebe and all the other characters

of our improvisation.

We have fond memories of you.

Happy Birthday

fijne verjaardag lieve zuster.

They're coming to celebrate

the beginning of a life

that taught

me

all of us...

how to dance.

We are separated only

by miles and time.

But the imagination 

truly knows no borders

therefore dearest Penny,

Welcome Spring with Bebe

Spring has arrived with the sweet scent of flowers.. Come sit with me dear friends,  and enjoy the day. Please do not startle me, as I am taking a wee nap under the tree... Maybe Miss Moussie  would bring a basket full of goodies,  and I know Tea Rat would have plenty of Raspberry Tea.. 
Rattus, do you have a butterfly net? 
Love, Bebe

Please join Bebe for a picnic in Nowhere...


shhhhhh....May I tell you a secret ?  Bebe is hosting a picnic  in Nowhere....


I wonder if this book will help me locate Bebe...




 I better get going.... That owl may just beat me to it..




 What the! This is not the zoo!  Does this mean I have to go home?



Hello my dear Nowhere friends. 
It won't be long now.. Valentines day is in a few short weeks, no?
So I have put out some luscious grapes, cheese (yum) Italian bread and must not forget the TEA....
So please sit awhile... Enjoy nature, good friends, a lots of food!




Maybe if the weather permits, even dip our tiny toes in the water. The weather in Nowhere is always beautiful!
Love and kisses
Bebe

ENTER TEA RAT:

Dearest Bebe and friends, can I, can I PLEASE 
bring my horse Neptune to the picnic?
We promise FREE rides
all day long along the banks of the creek.
