Taking care of buisness

I've been so busy lavishing in my sweet birthday wishes and love, I've neglected to give back to you, my dear Invisible Friends. And you deserve it. After all, you come back day after day to read my crazy tales and give me sweet comment after comment. For a writer who spent years pouring words into the dark world of the Internet, having your support and encouragement is irreplaceable. You all inspire me every day, and I thank you for that.

So now, a sussy for you!



My dear buddy Marie at A Year of Oak Cottage gave me this great award last week! Now, it's my honor to pass it on to some of my favorite Autumn friends:

1)Prudy
2)Lore
3) Emma
4) Grace

5)Bunny
6) Tater tots and Jello
7) Marjie
8) Maria at Two Peas in their Pod
9) Katherine
10)Noble Pig

In addition, I was also tagged by Cynthia at Diary of a Glad Housewife . Instead of giving you six quirky things about me (because to be frank, I'm tired of me), I'm giving you six quirky things about the Land of the Flowered Bed! (Want to know what the Land of the Flowered Bed is? Read last Tuesday's post.)

Six Quirky things about the Land of the Flowered Bed:

1) As a exceedingly large bumblebee, Pumble loves nectar and honey. He is however, allergic to flowers, particularly daisies.

2) Cookies, when no one is watching, giggles at cuteoverload.com and watches TLC's Wedding and Baby Stories. If someone is watching, he snarls at kittens and bashes any sweet show as "sentimental dribble."

3) Before Hairy became the mayor of the Land of the Flowered Bed, he wanted to be a cowboy.

4) The seals are identical twins--a boy and a girl. They are the only twins they know.

5) The ducks in the Spa secretly pretend to look for buried treasure on the bottom of the bathtub when the other members of the Land of the Flowered Bed are sleeping. The girl duck pretends she's a mermaid while the two boy ducks pretend they are pirates.

6) Miss Moose McKinley is perpetually confused. She attributes this to her tendencies as a natural blond moose. Her fur is brown due to the poor sunlight in Alaska.



Be sure to stop by throughout the week! I'll post my artichoke cheese dip, a new Miss Pickles and several more fun whimsical tales!

Thanks again for all the birthday love. You all mean a lot to me.

I loved reading all these new things about Pumble, Cookies, Hairy, Miss Moose, the Ducks and everyone else from the LFB. And here I was thinking I knew all there was to know about them!!! Shame on me! My goodness but you are getting lots of lovely comments these days! I am so happy to see them all. It just goes to prove that I have been right all along and that you are a true literay genius of a most spectacular species of writers . . . the children's writer, and not only that but one who is also able to capture and mesmerize the adult mind on top of it all! Duckie, you ARE the best!

Lore said...

Thank you for the present Duckie and there must be something we can to for Pumble to overcome his allergies!

Kitty M said...
