Hopefully Trouble will be back to making trouble real soon.
Meanwhile, Back on the Nile
Puckmosis: It’s always good to see you, Kat-Mandu!
Ora Z: How do you like being a Papyrus Cat?
Kat-Mandu: It’s a great job. I get to deliver gifts, good news, and scrolls from all over. Of course, I have to deliver the good news and the bad.
Ora Z: Can’t you just shred the bad news?
Kat: No. Unfortunately, people need both the good and the bad.
Melpomene Bee: That’s like what I do. I represent the Muse of Tragedy. But my message is that tragedy and comedy are necessary to have a full life. And there’s always honey to sweeten things.
Puck: I like your Xanadu honey, Mel. It’s sweet and yet has a touch of salt as well. Very complex.
Mel: I always like to keep finding ways to improve. I’m just on the way to see Trevor about some exciting new flower varieties.
Kat: Great! Let us know how you make out.
Mel: At least I’ll do better than my sister Thalia. She tried to make honey from space time anemone nectar.
Puck: Oooh…How did that turn out?
Mel: No one knows. We can’t find the honey.
Glad she had some food. Hope she turns the corner soon.
Parasites looking for Trouble? Well you got more than you bargained for!
On Christmas Eve Night
Saint Nicholas: Ready to beam in, Scotty. Energize!
Sending all the good thoughts to you and your orange crush.
Sending purrayers and Power of the Paw that she will be found safe and sound.
Jingidey Jing! You nailed it!
My mom and dad had a golden blonde Cocker Spaniel who was the cutest, sweetest dog ever. Fourteen years was not nearly enough. Enjoy playing with Kerry, Teddy, and Corky until we meet again, Sunny.
Ora Z: I wonder if there is really a Papyrus Cat.
Puckmosis: There is. You’ve met Kat-Mandu.
Ora Z: Yes, but how does he deliver all the papyrus in Egypt.
Puck: Actually, he is only one of many Papyrus Cats. They deliver all the scrolls and packages throughout Egypt. And beyond.
Ora Z: How do they get around?
Puck: They use camels, horses, whatever they need. In Italia they sometimes use donkeys.
Ora Z: Maybe they could launch the papyri. Like Wally and Iron Glove’s potato launcher.
Puck: Uh, that would require some careful planning.
Lupinium: Oh, a little chaos can be a good thing.
Puck: Around here there’s no such thing as a little chaos.
