Things to Buy, Places to Go, Friends to Invite



Rattus: GOOD GOD Old man....look where you are going....we need to get to the cheese shop SAFELY before it closes! We must get the cheese...

TEA: Oh, what a lovely day it is...Thank heavens for Gretta and her extra tin of Petrol; now we can cruise the village and the countryside before the party begins.....

ONE HOUR LATER



RATTUS: Splendid choice, hey?

TEA: Magnificent. Wit's End is the perfect cottage for inviting friends, making merry, and living large on the cheap old thing. That Bebe is quite the worker, isn't she?

RATTUS: Are the others coming? Did you send the invitations, sir?

TEA: Here...here is one more invitation left....look...

HELLO EVERYONE,
I JUST FOUND MY WAY TO NOWHERE LAND.
I TOOK THE TIME IF IT IS OKAY TO PEEK INSIDE THE ADORABLE COTTAGE. I DIDN'T DISTURB A THING AND I HID BEHIND THE WILLOW TREE WHEN THE GANG CAME NEAR. I DID NOT WANT TO INTRUDE, BUT ENJOYED READING ALL ABOUT THEM.
I LOVE YOUR BLOG. IMAGINATION IS SO VERY IMPORTANT AND YOUR ILLUSTRATIONS ARE ENGAGING AND IT MAKES ONE DESIRE TO GET AN INVITATION
TO TEA.
HOW LOVELY YOU ALL ARE. I KNOW THE DUCHESS AND LOVE TO SET IN HER ROSE GARDEN JUST AT SUNSET AS THE AUROMA IS SO INTOXICATING.
XOXO
SIMPLY DEBBIE

Tea Rat: Old chap, buying this cottage at Wit's End was a prime mover of an idea.

Rattus: Chomp...chomp..slurp...gulp. How true, how true.

Tea: Bebe has been invaluable in sprucing up the place for the party.

Rattus: Glurmph...crunshmpf...gulp. Indeed, indeed.

Tea: Look here, my good rat, if you keep eating this way, two things will happen: first, we'll have to make more trips in my Sidecar Motorscoot to replace all the food you keep devouring; and two, you're going to be the fattest rat in Nowhere.

Rattus: Cruunch...gransh...glumph...slurp...glulp. Quite right, quite right.

Tea: RATTUS!

Rattus: Gulp...swallup...gurnk... No doubt, no doubt.

Tea: RATTUS!

Rattus: Guullpmpf. What?

Tea: YOU'RE EATING ALL THE FOOD BEFORE THE PARTY BEGINS!

Rattus: You're point being?

Tea: Oh, Rodentia, Vole, and the saints preserve us.

The Dutchess said...

Oh Rodentia..haha..Thank you..this was so much fun..the two of you are amazing!!!

Rattus Scribus said...

This really is a lot of fun. And Anita knows I'm her biggest fan of her drawings, but let me add to what everyone else is saying about your absolutely charming drawings, my dear.

Oh, you all are amazing! What a load of talent we got going on here...this really is a hoot! Now let's scoot and continue the party! More blueberry sparkling wine, please! I think I saw Mozes and Miss M. snoozing in the garden of Wit's End!

Bramblewood Bears said...
