Leo and Alice Sitting in a Tree.

Leo, " I've been lying around these days, thinking about nothing except Alice. You remember, she was the lead singer for , The Rock Cats. They performed at Lewis' birthday party. Anyhoo, we sort of had a romantic interlude that evening and I haven't seen her since. She's touring right now with the band."

Leo, " I guess I've been moping. LP says eighteen pounds of moping is far too much moping and I need to snap out of it ! "

Leo, " She's right . I need to DO something ! "

Leo , " I know. I'll write a poem ! "

Leo, " O.k. Here goes :  Roses are red ,
                                      Violets are blue ,
                                       Alice, you ' re a cat with rythm ,
                                       and I really dig you. "

Leo, " No, even I can hear how juvenile that sounds. I need to put true feeling into it. Let's see.

                                                Warm , damp bedding
                                                 cast aside
                                                 we have lain here
                                                 solely aware
                                                 of the other's
                                                 absence. "

Leo, " Well now that might be a little too forward. I wouldn't want to scare her away..."

Leo, " I'll just sleep on it for now."

Have a madcap Monday!
See you tomorrow.
the critters in The Cottage.
