BY GEORGE.....


While dancing, Mozes had lost his backpack...O dear,where could this bag be...?
Its wasn't much of a bag but all of his belongings were in it....still a bit sticky from the spilled honey but Mozes wouldn't be a real bear if he would care about that...
Aha..there is was ...a little Tea rat was using it as sofa....
Dearest Tea...said Mozes,would you be so kind to get up from your comfy seat ,you are sitting on my lunch!
Surtenly surtenly ..said Tea..and jumped up immediately...I was just resting a minute...catching my breath after all this twisting and twirling..
Mozes quickly grabbed the bag, and when doing so ...the bag opened and something fell out...unfortunately on Rattus his head...
who happened to be on the wrong place at the right time...or was it the other way around..?

-By George...Yelled Rattus...What was that....?
-Well,said Tea..its not a George....it's a book...
-Again!!...Why are they always landing on my head..and not on yours for example?
-I wasn't standing on the right place at the wrong time...like you,smiled Tea...I always know exactly where I stand!
-I could argue with you on that point..said Rattus while he was checking his head for bumps...there is a philosophy about right and wrong you know!

-Guys...guys....before we get in a very long and interesting discussion...look what we have here..and Mozes showed them his book....he opened it on the first page....and there it was....A MAP
-Last time I opened this book NOTHING was in it..the pages were blank.....and Mozes sat himself down to studie the page....if you want to do the same please click the middle of Nowhere!

O.K., this is exquisite....this map, the places, the situation!!! I am coming back later after I get myself situated here; there are many little places to examine here, but I will be watching above my head lest a giant tome fall on my head!!! BRAVO! Anita

We'll there it is! The things that can happen in Nowhere remind me of what Winston Churchill once called the Soviet Union: "a riddle wrapped in a mystery inside an enigma."

Obviously, there are two conspiracies afoot. The first is that we MUST have a book. The second is that they MUST land on my head.

I will gladly concede the first to the gods of Nowhere, if they will in future but spare my poor head the second.

Painfully yours,
Rattus

P.S., Great map, dear Dutchess

Oh now we have some direction. Tea Rat and Rattus have no excuse other than getting distracted by Santasaurs, Pink Mice and other frivolties. The two rats will be sure to have a copy of this well-detailed map for their journey to the Valentine's Ball where Tea has already signed Bebe's dance card!!! Where shall this event take place....the Cheese Cottage perhaps?

How dandy a map...I'm not sure if Gretta has learned to read or not. She is still back trying on her evening dress for the fashion show. Somehow, everyone went dancing and nobody got down the runway! She'll be running to catch up soon. Don't leave her behind. She will need someone to read the map for sure for her!

The Dutchess said...

I am sure the map can wait...come on Gretta...lets get out on that stage and strut our stuf..:)))

Just what we needed!! What a great MAP! We must not lose it Mozes.. Don't forget to put it in your backpack..
Did I hear someone say Valentine's Ball at the Cheese cottage???? What fun... Bebe loves to dance!!!

Dear Dutchess,
This map is brilliant. Now we can find our way on our journey without fear of who might be "Out There" or figuring out how we're going to out from "Under There" or getting lost in the "Middle of Nowhere." Me I think I'd like to follow the Lazy River to the pub at Rabbit Hill. "Nowhere" can you find a better ale.

Also, the pub is indoors. Not much chance indoors of getting brained by an other book from "Up There."

I agree with Rattus. Inside is much safer, especially here at the Pub of Rabbit Hill. There is always something floating around in the air...from up above the tree tops from squirrels throwing wedges of pizza and French bread and male cardinals trying to out-dominate each other, let alone flying books in the garden of Clair de Lune!

Poor Rattus and his aching head. And now a map...I forsee another exciting new adventure...
