Ahhhhhh.....bellows the Tea Rat as he sips his last cup of tea for the evening. He decided to step away from all the merrymaking activity at the bonfire and has taken to his pen. These last couple of weeks in Nowhere has led to somewhere very special; he has decided to write a letter to a very dear lady, the Dutchess, who at the moment is in the land of somewhere and is truly missed. How delighted she will be to see her beloved friends again and we shall be equally thrilled to hear her sweet voice.
Dearest Dutchess, come home soon.
Oh! How about a match of bowling while we wait for the Dutchess?
Rattus Scribus ribbed his old friend Tea Rat: "Well, TR, it looks like you succeeded in stumbling upon the ball, ho..ho..ho; producing forthwith the momentous event of knocking over a solitary pin.
"My dear fellow, you will need to practice quite diligently at (what did you call it? booling?) if you are ever going to get what my city friends call, game. Do bool again. Get game. Yes, yes. And I'll have another cup of tea, there's a good fellow."
