The keys were in the engine...after much thought and a hmm and a haw she crawled in the front seat and squished her tush the best she could and stepped on the gas! Full speed ahead to Nowhere. She'd explain later to the owner and she would gladly buy the Poot-Scoot, some other day. Off she went bumping over hills and dales to find Mozes and Tea and Rattus and the rest of the gang. She wondered how in the world Mozes was going to fit...near impossible but Bebe could sleep in the back for sure while Gretta drove...tee hee...it even had a radio! She sang at the top of her lungs..."Five foot two, eyes a blue...

Gretta buys a Poot-Scoot
It seems as though the merry band of travelers have gone hither and dither and there but nowhere near Nowhere. Gretta was so full of Blueberry Pie she decided to take a stroll. It seemed as though she might be going in circles but she had no idea. Bebe was so full of pie she had crawled in a overstuffed chair and fell asleep in the cafe. Gretta decided to get a move on through the thick grass. My oh my...what do I hear? Something is going kaput, pow and a big bang...sounds like an engine. Is that by chance the Poot-Poot? Gretta fell in love at first sight with the pink machine making all the racket. It may have seen better days but better days had arrived for Gretta. A sign on the seat said "FOR SALE, TAKE IT OR LEAVE IT." Now Gretta gets easily confused, did it mean it was for sale? Should she buy it, take it or leave it? After all her paws were sore from traveling to Nowhere and all the pie had made strolling a bit hard...especially keeping up with rats, mice and bears and rabbits and raccoons.
