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!

Love,
Bebe

March 6 1982

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:

get your costume caught on things. We want to present
properly!

RATTUS: 

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

inhabitant of Nowhere will know who you are.

Urrrgh...buzz

urrrgh...buzz...urrrgh...buzz...urrrgh...buzz...urrrgh...buzz...
urrrgh...buzz...urrrgh...buzz...urrrgh...buzz...urrrgh...buzz...

A persistent buzzing caused me such a horrid fitful sleep,
and no amount of counting sheep would let me sleep a peep.

I trudged out to the kitchen (I think) to fetch a spot of tea.
But I couldn't shake the feeling that something followed me.



So I turned and saw through sleepy eyes right smack in front of me:
the biggest bee you've ever seen. I'm sure you would agree.


You will think that I was dreaming, what I saw was just a cat.
But I swear my upon my life, it was no such thing as that.

The noise I made awoke the town and they all rushed to see
what in the name of heaven caused a fuss to that degree.

But when they barged into my bed, the bee had simply vanished
and it was all that I could do to keep from being banished.

Since that day I've kept away that whole insane affair.
But if you hear a buzz at night, I hope you will bee-ware.


For when at bed you cannot sleep and turn around to see
that following you around night is your own sleepless bee.

RATTUS 
(yelling from the other side of the cottage):

TEA RAT! Your mobile was ringing; someone left a message...something about, "I followed your detailed instructions and wrote what you wanted and did you get the pin-up?"

What has he done now...
