The Secretary travels homeward and back

The Secretary travels
Originally uploaded by FranSb.
After her long talk with the Great White Owl, the Secretary knew that she must go to her childhood home for a time before the meeting with Baba. When she called for a team, Mehitabel refused point blank to wear those ear wings again but the twins, Bebe and Deneba volunteered as one to pull the light cutter as it was also provided with a large set of #2 special new-model drive wings and the little team were proud of their reputations for being ultra modern high flyers. The Secretary put on the magic dark-for-snow glasses, her big fur mittens and her thinking-this-is-fine cap. They flew north to the end-of-the-line at le Pas for a visit with the Secretary's old classmates and back again without too much trouble although even the most patient donkeys were a bit miffed when they had to thaw their morning tea but the Sec. had some mintys in her big satchell which made the twins happy. The Sec. was very glad she had found the old china footwarmer and had it under the big dooner. I hope everyone will wait for us at Baba's and will appreciate the ice blocks we are bringing back. Yours as always, The Secretary of the Donkeys' Union

This is very lovely Fran. Maybe at Christmas we will have donkeys pulling the sleigh.

Does one have to be our age to remember china footwarmers to put in the bed when winter is here...Lois
