I AM SURE THE CATS AND DOGS WOULD LOVE TO HELP. I DO KNOW THEY GET TIRED OF BEING JUST A PETTING ZOO. OF COURSE THERE WILL BE HAY RIDES. EVERYONE SEEMED TO ENJOY THAT LAST YEAR. IF WE LET THE CHILDREN PET AND PLAY WITH THE ZOO FOR AWHILE THEN THEY CAN DO THE TUNNELS WITH PET FRIENDS. NOT JUST CATS AND DOGS. AND BABY DOES LOVE PULLING THE CART WITH THE CHILDREN, CAP DO YOU THINK BLOSSOM AND CHERRY WOULD LIKE TO BE PART OF THE PETTING ZOO THIS YEAR. I KNOW YOU ARE IN CHARGE OF YOUR CRITTERS. BUT THEY WILL SEE THEM FROM TIME TO TIME. THEY NEED TO KNOW THEY ARE FRIENDS NOT FOOD. OR SOMETHING TO BE FEARED. AND WHAT ABOUT FANG AND STUMP. THE ADULTS NEED TO KNOW THAT THEY WILL NOT HURT THEIR CHILDREN. IF THEY SEE THEM IN THE OPEN AREAS AROUND THEIR HOMES.
I KNOW THE FOOD WILL BE GREAT IT ALWAYS IS. AND THAT SILLY BROOM HAS BEEN GOOD ABOUT SEPARATING THE USUAL HOS ITEMS TO THEIR PROPER PLACE AND THE CANDY AND FRUITS AND FISH TO THEIRS. OUR KITCHEN THE ANIMALS AND THE MOAT. ELLIE AND BROOD MUST BE GETTING FAT ON ALL THOSE FISH. THE BROOM IS QUICK WITH THE FISH. IT IS GETTING MOST OF THEM INTO THE MOAT WHILE STILL ALIVE. THOSE NOT INTO THE COMPOST PILE.
WE WILL NEED A BIGGER PILE NOW THAT WE HAVE BLOSSOM AND CHERRY HERE. BUT THAT ONE SHOULD BE DUG CLOSER TO THEIR AREA. HOPE YOUR BOYS WILL BE ON HAND TO CLEAN UP AFTER THEM. MY GNOMES HAVE A LOT TO DO JUST MUCKING OUT THE BARN AND CLEANING UP THE CATTERY.
THAT CAN BE TABLED FOR LATER.
I KNOW RAMBLING. ONE THING SEEMS TO GET ME TO THINKING OR ANOTHER.
THE MAIN THING IS THAT OUR LOCALS GET TO KNOW YOUR CRITTERS ARE FRIENDS. AND NOT TO TRY TO HARM THEM.
As I get ready to leave for Kaley's I see the tray and note from the Cap. Well, that was nice of Cap but he's still going to pay for my costume! Hahaha
I was so happy to learn that Kaley's already had a supply of costumes in stock so I didn't have to order one. I rush back to the Tea Room to show everyone what I (Cap) bought. Isn't this a great costume?
Charlie insisted she's not really wearing a quote costume, she's just going to use her barn attire. But, I think it works perfectly!
COSTUME THERE IS NO WAY I AM WEARING ONE. CAN'T WORK WITH ALL THESE CRITTERS IN THAT STUFF. WHEN ANGEL SAYS I NEED ONE. THEN SHE LOOKS ME UP AND DOWN. SAYS THOUGHT YOU WEREN'T WEARING A COSTUME? I'M NOT I DECLARE. THEN WHAT IS THAT SHE POINTS TO MY CLOTHES.
THEN I REALIZE I HAVE ON MY OLD PATCHED OVERALLS, AND AN OLD FLANNEL.
" WHAT DO YOU EXPECT ME TO WEAR TO BATH THAT ZOO, IT IS NO LONGER SUMMER WHERE I CAN JUST WEAR MY JEANS ROLL THEM UP AND BE BARE FOOT. BABY, AND BEAU NEED A COMPLETE BATH. AND BRUSHING, AS DO THE DOGS. I KNOW THEY WILL BE A FILTHY MESS AFTER THE PARTY BUT AT LEAST THEY WILL START CLEAN".
I TURN ON MY HEEL AND HEAD OUT THE DOOR TO THE BARN. TO GET STARTED. IT WILL TAKE A COUPLE OF DAYS TO GET THEM ALL BATHED AND BRUSHED AND LOOKING GOOD.
GUESS I WILL START WITH THE CATS. AT LEAST THEY SEEM TO STAY CLEAN LONGER.
COSTUME, THESE ARE NOT A COSTUME I GRUMBLE.
oh dear Angel done it this time as I lean against the wal and listen to the two ladies.
WAIT A COTTON PICKIN MINUTE HERE SUNSHINE,,,,, DID I HEAR LOOK WHAT CAP PAID FOR????
I search my pocket rot rouh .... I search again @#$%^&*())(*&^%$#$%^& they found my card again oh craponacracker they will put me in the poor house I tell....
I call after Charlie hey Charlie nifty costume you picked out suits you to a tea and Ada who aya goin scalp??
Hum makes me thunck what I am going to wear something appropriate to my stature .
Opel suggested we have our party on Saturday the 15 I told her I think the following Saturday would be better would give everyone more time to pick out an outfit and Opel Miss Katt need help so a few of our neighbor ladies have offered to help in the kitchen and all us guys will take care of the bar and decorate and set up the games.
Angel need you to go to your office one more time,,,, oh stop mummbling it is unbecoming of a lady .
I need a few flyers for the party.... WHATTTTTTTTTTTTT MORE FLYERS????????????????/
Lol yes and these ones will have THE DATE on them and mention the games and prizes you know what to write you are a star reporter are you not SMILE*
Tell you what write out one here and we can okay it together .
I walk away as Angel glares at my back if looks could kill lol and she thinks her outfit is free LOL okie dokie
A COSTUME?!?!?! Oh No!!! I forgot about that!!! Guess I'd better start looking around for something to cobble together! PEARL! I need your search stills, dear!!!
I can't believe I'm still being sent to work on even more flyers! Whatever.....fine, here's the extra flyers with the added information you asked for. And, Cap, don't even THINK of finding another reason to make any more! You didn't mention how much to charge for the entrance fee so I took it upon myself to come up with $5, which I think is a very fair price. This is it, I'm done, I'm outta here!
I look at the flyer ..nice very nice then I notice the error..
I yell after a fleeing Angel HEY GET BACK HERE YOU MADE A MISTAKE @#$%^&*()_)(*&^%$
I SAID SATURDAY THE 23RD YOU PUT Friday THE 22 ND
NOW WERE DID SHE GET TO SO DAUMN FAST?
I hope she means the 5 buck fee if for the rides etc, I can not charge any one for food seeing it all comes from the harvest .
ANGELLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL GET BACK HERE ASAP.
Sheesh! All this work for one little flyer!! I just KNEW Cap would find SOMETHING else to go on about. **sigh** Ok, I've redone it, once again! Now, can I get back to what I was doing?!
COSTUME!!!!! MY AUNT FANNIE, THAT IS THE LAST TIME I LET SOMEONE ELSE PATCH MY OVERALLS. THEY USED WHATEVER SCRAPS OF CLOTH THEY HAD NOT THE DENIM I HAD LEFT WITH THEM. AFTER THE FESTIVITIES THEY COME OFF AND THE RIGHT ONES GET PUT ON.
BESIDES THESE PATCHES WILL NEVER LAST, TOO THIN.
NO TIME TO WORRY ABOUT THEM NOW. HAVE TO GET THE BARN AND THE ZOO IN ORDER.
Costume! Costume! I hope that cake doesn’t burn while I’m hunting…
Hmmm, I am a Katt… noooooo THAT won’t work!
I could just throw a robe over my clothes… NOPE – never mind!
Pearl and I dig deeper… sleeves too long to work around the stove, skirt’s too short, way too heavy, too boring, HELL NO – I’ll NEVER fit into that again, clothes fly everywhere as we dig into the old steamer chest, ARGH!!!!
Chirrup… what have you got there love? I forgot I had that! Thanx Pearl!!! It’s perfect:
Finally! A fun and workable costume, sigh… OMG! THE CAKE!!!
