Mollusca Mary Shelly

Mollusca Mary Shelly

Mollusca Mary Shelly lives in the Canterbury dell
and each and every morning she rings the fairy bell…
which whispers the sweet words of farewell,
to the night stars and their magic spell.

Nanny Fern O’ Byrne

Nanny+FernNanny Fern O’ Byrne
had many a thing to learn,
like, how to use a butter churn,
or even polish a coffee urn.
For Nanny Fern O’ Byrne
had more urgent concerns…

Like, taking care of Ms. Pippa Hints.
Making extra sure that she
never, never ate too many peppermints…
or ever had any reason to wear
those grim and ghastly shin splints.
For heaven only knows!
She just might meet (ribbit) Mr. Prince.

Yes, the dear old nanny was quite uncanny.
Even though, she never stepped so much as a toe in East Miami!

Thrill-seeker Permelia Plotts!

Thrill-seeker Permelia Plotts!

Thrill-seeker Permelia Plotts is about to embark on a great adventure to Boston, however, before she goes she would like to share one of her most famous traveling tips…
Never, ever, ever forget to bring along the Sea buckthorn tea! Now, here is why… It will fight off those savage carcinogens that tend to attack when you are most vulnerable! Yes, traveling can be quite a stressful venture, and it is known to cause great vulnerability in even the hardiest people. It also helps decrease appetite. (For one never knows while traveling when one might receive a decent meal!) It contains more vitamin C than oranges, or what nots… Yes, Sea buckthorn tea gives you energy, resolves skin diseases, and may stave off those frequent trips to the lavatory due to some questionable pumpkin muffin you’ve just ingested.
Last bit of Odd and End ~ Due to Thrill-seeker Permelia Plotts’ travels, Zingertales and A Funny Bunny Picture blogs will not be posting its usual fair! However, stay tuned for she will most probably share a bit of her travel log!

Practical Reverie!

Practical Reverie!

Accountant Adella Minch lives in the Maison D’ Pear
She measuredly calls it her little castle in the air
Although, it is indeed, very much in disrepair…
Still, she can’t help thinking, if only I had a nice wingback chair.
Then, my little yardstick of a life would really be beyond compare!
