The fog has finally lifted and the two navigators of the LED ZEPPLIN have taken off their night goggles and with the help of their compasses, hope to find their way back to NOWHERE...but wait, like all good blimps, their dirigible has an important advertisment attached to it..."Let's make a couple of turns around the countryside old man, before we land this thing...we need to advertise our new brand of tea!"

I was wondering where you two were! I am so glad you have made it out of the fog.. We were worried down her... What a great blimp ! Love the name! Now that's the way to advertise..
Have you seen Bebe and TJ?
As you make a couple of turns around the countryside please watch for them. Safe landing old man..

Dearest Anita
What a fantastic drawing!!! I love it.

Thank you dear Penny! You know, I believe that Rattus and Tea bumped into Bebe and TJ a few miles back, and Bebe was in the pilot's seat! We must wait and see what will become of Bebe and now that she has her own set of wings!!! In the meantime, DRINK PG TIPS! AND SMACK YOUR LIPS!

Angelsdoor * Penny said...

Oh NO! in the pilot's seat!!! oh my little Bebe.. What will she do? I hope she does not try any tricks.. In the meantime...

PG Tips,
so good it tickles the ribs
A cup in the morn
A cup in the eve
Pg Tips, The only Tea for me!!

Oh Bebe is just fine...she has attempted to avoid the temptation to do any aviation acrobatics, but she is picking up speed! But just sit back, watch the air show and take a

cup in the morn
cup at noon
hot buttered toast
it will make you swoon.....

Ah, dearest Anita, your illustration brilliantly captures our magnificent physical forms and jovial adventures.

Now, since we are chiming in on possible advertising for my favorite tea in the wide world, I humbly submit the following:

England's PG Tips: The Tea That Outlasted The Empire.

Too political? How about:

PG Tips: Only Fools Don't Like It. You're Not A Fool, Are You?

Too rude: How about:

PG Tips: God's Favorite Tea. Shouldn't It Be Yours?

Too bombastic? How about:

PG Tips: God's Favorite Tea. Anything Else Is Heresy.


Any one of the above conveys my sentiments.

Your humble servant,

Well Sir Rattus of Madison Ave....

We shall have a power lunch and then several power breakfasts and our people will gather with your people and then decide upon the slogan during a power dinner. Then and only then will we have the wherewithall to submit your entries.

The Green Man

I can almost see this illustration animated. I love the music for this adventure too. I was in the library yesterday getting chandelier inspiration and came across HUGE books about castles and thought of you.

Your illustration is lovely.

Rattus Scribus said...

Hmmm...Let's see. SEVERAL power breakfasts, dinner....

Yeah, I think I can do that.
