Did someone say Birthday cake?


Dear Rattus,

I have baked you a special cake for your Birthday,  I hope everyone will join the fun..! You sir, may have two pieces of cake...  Now remember, no fighting with Tea Rat over who gest how big of piece, who get the last piece,  you see where I am going with this right?

Because Mum's card for you did not arrive,  I suggested that we bake you a cake and have a party.
Love,
Bebe


Dear Ruben,
Happy birthday dear friend... I hope you enjoy!
Your friend always,
Penny

TEA RAT: RATTUS OLD THING...you are going to drop, you are just going to gasp when you see your dream girl here...just for YOU on the cake!

RATTUS: Good glory old thing, are my eyes deceiving me, or is this real? Bebe, popping out of a cake?

TEA RAT: And to see the DIVINE MISS M., Mr. C. and THE DUTCHESS, all in one swoop? This is divine!

DUTCHESS DEAR! YOU'RE HERE!

PENNY! You put on the best party! Rattus/Ruben is on his way...he is typing as I type! THANK YOU!

Thank you Penny; your drawing is as endearing and perfect as the first day we met. You continue to enchant us with the magic behind all the art you make, and your thoughtfulness. We adore you so! Now, someone turn up the music and let's see Bebe kick up those gams! WOO HOO!

Dearest Bebe, Miss Moussie and all my Nowhere friends.

I am touched by your kindness in your remembrance of my birthday. Tea Rat keeps trying to press me to reveal my age, and refuses to believe me when I tell him that...if you look at me from a certain angle, from a distance of no less than 20 meters, with the lights off on a moonless night, and your eyes heavily bandaged after major eye surgery, I am 21 years old.

Anyway, I think he believes me not. In any case, unlike my sweet Bebe, who has kindly put but 6 candles and her gorgeous self on my birthday cake, Tea Rat on the other hand has put so many candles on another cake that if he lights but one candle, the others will ignite simultaneously.

And so, come one, come all to my birthday party, and BYOE (bring your own extinguisher). I remain

yours truly,
Rattus

TEA RAT: you know old man, from a certain angle, from a distance of no less than 20 meters, with the lights off on a moonless night, and one's eyes heavily bandaged after major eye surgery, the imagination, and I mean a GOOD IMAGINATION, anyone can look 21 years old! But this is what I love about you, son...this is what keeps us rats YOUNG, to believe and keep going. JOIN ME EVERYONE, as I lift my tea cup to RATTUS, RATTUS, three cheers for RATTUS and all our Nowhere friends.

Dear Rattus,
You will always be young to me!
Happy birthday dear friend

Bebe

p.s. Let's party Tea Rat and friends!

Ruben Rivera said...

Tea Rat: Three cheers for Rattus' birthday. Hip hip, hooray. Hip hip, hooray. Hip hip, hooray.

Rattus: OK, son, leave my hips out of it.

Ruben Rivera said...

Whoever said that friendship cannot be real across the digital frontier does not know anything about Nowhere. Thank you again, dearest friends.

Rattus.

Castles Crowns and Cottages said...

TEA RAT: Did some one say hips? HIPS BE DA@*#$! teehee.... Let us eat cake for tomorrow we...er...uhm....how does that go again?

RATTUS: You are mixing up your expressions here son, but no matter. It's my birthday and I deserve to shake my hips today, dance with Bebe on the cake and eat all I want. So there.

Ruben Rivera said...

Tea Rat: OK, son, slow down on the cake and beer. You know how you get when you eat and drink too much.

Rattus: Nonsense. It's my 21st birthday. Besides you're the one promoting the "eat, drink and be merry" philosophy.

Tea Rat: Rattus, slow down. I'll say no more.

Rattus: You haven't (hic) said anything (hic).

Tea Rat: And that's all I'm gonna say.

Rattus: Sensenon (hic hic). I know how to (hic) hold my (hic) my bake and ceer (hic hic hic). ♪ ♫ Oh, I'll take you home ♪ ♫ again Kathleen ♪ ♫...

Tea Rat: Here we go.

Rattus: ...♪ ♫ Across the ocean wild and wide ♪ ♫ to where you heart ♪ ♫ has ever been ♪ ♫ Since you were first my bonnie bride. ♪ ♫

Tea Rat: Now you've done it.

Rattus: ♪ ♫ The roses all have left your cheek. ♪ ♫ I've watch them fade away and die. ♪ ♫ Your voice is sad when e'er you speak. ♪ ♫ And tears dedim your loving eyes. ♪ ♫

Tea Rat: You go, rat.

Rattus: ♪ ♫ Oh! I will take you back, Kathleen. ♪ ♫ To where your heart will feel no pain. ♪ ♫

Bebe: Ah..hurummph, hurumph! Excuse me, but who pray tell is this Kathleen? Did you say "bonnie bride"?

Tea Rat: Hoo boy. Rattus, are you in trouble.

Rattus: ONE MORE TIME: ♪ ♫ Oh, I'll take you home ♪ ♫ again Kathleen ♪ ♫...

Castles Crowns and Cottages said...

TEA RAT: I need a couple of bouncers; Rattus is a rather large rat and I can't manage carrying him out! MOZES, WHERE ARE YOU? Rattus, it's time beddy-bye time.. FAIRE DO DO, don't let the bed bugs bite and all that...come on now, just put your arm over my shoulder!

Angelsdoor * Penny said...

KATHLEEN you say? No, no Rattus.. The song goes.....
I'll take you home again Bebe!!
I want to know who in the sam hill is that Kathleen?
Bebe

Rattus: You are absolutely right, Bebe. Please forgive me. I was a little tipsy. Let me get the words right.

TEA RAT: Good for you son; you have fessed up, you have redeemed yourself on this, your 21st birthday. Now, let's carry on with the celebration and get something in our bellies to eat!

Angelsdoor * Penny said...

Now that is what my little ears wanted to hear! Thank you Rattus!

Ok Tea Rat, lets go find the food. Do I smell cheese?
Bebe

Castles Crowns and Cottages said...

TEA RAT: Yes little Bebe, party animal extraordinaire, you do smell cheese! I'm making a cheese fondue and all you need to do is get your little stick,spear a chunk of bread and dip away...mmmmmmmmm! Let's close the curtain of a very fun day together, as we rest with our feet up on a comfortable ottoman and dream of another lovely day in Nowhere.How we love this drawing of you!

Jeri Landers said...

Happy Birthday Ruben, from all the little rats and mice in the Hollow! Be sure to indulge yourself, just as we would do...IF it were our birthdays.... Much mirth and cake, on this, your day! From Dimity Doormouse and friend in Hopalong Hollow.

Castles Crowns and Cottages said...

TEA RAT: DDM and JERI LANDERS! Oh, Rattus is still asleep (too much wine from the region of Nowhere!) but today is his BIG BDAY and we just may go out for a slice of CHEESECAKE...every civilized rat's favorite!

THANK YOU FOR COMING and thank you again my precious Bebe and Penny for throwing such a dandy party....who has their own special little miss to dance on their birthday cake?

XOXOX

Jeanie said...
