Meanwhile, Back on the Nile
Sophititi: I’m taking these sculptures to the marketplace for the annual Shopping Monday sale. Want to come?
Maat-Tilda: Be right with you. I have my tapestries all ready for sale.
Sophititi: Have you seen any of the Royal Procurers around lately?
Maat-Tilda: I think they’re taking a much-need holiday after procuring so much for the annual Feast of Gratitude.
At the Marketplace
Alice-Ata: Remember, we’re just looking around enjoying the sights of the Marketplace. Although if something takes your fancy, that can’t be helped.
Ta-Natash: Violet-Ifa will go visit the cheese booths. Just to see what varieties are available.
Agnes-Ata: I’ll go and check out the herbs and You-Know-Whats.
Alice-Ata: And I’ll check out the art supplies for our Artisan Team. Remember: We’re just looking.
Praying for luck and grace.
Happy Birthday, Georgia. May your day be filled with purrs and joy.
Herman’s Hermits, The Carpenters, and others: There’s a Kind of Hush
There’s a kind of hush
All throughout the house
I can hear the sound of quiet I love!
Everyone else is asleep
And I can just relax alone
I can just relax
And I’m feeling good
With the house to myself.
So listen very carefully,AnIt’s morning now and we all can see
No time to daydream
There’s adventure and mischief to be had,
Let’s pull down the shower curtain,
I’ll be glad to have help!
It’ll be such fun!
All throughout the house at night
All throughout the house,
But it’s morning now, and here is Lupin!
Thomios: Time to make leftover soup.
Sue Chef: Is the soup leftover, or is it made from leftovers?
Thomios: Both, actually. Will you help me with the broth?
Sue Chef: Glad to. Can we add spice plural yet?
Thomios: No. But we can work around that. Just add one spice at a time.
Sue Chef: Do we have enough seasoning for the broth?
Thomios: I think so. I heard giggling in the pantry this morning.
Beatrixia: Did you bring the flowers?
Trevor-Hotep: Yep, fresh from the Puppy Hill Daisy Farm!
Thomios: I have some new desserts created by Patty. A lovely combination of chocolate and peppermint!
Puckmosis: The music will be provided by a young piano prodigy named Schroeder.
Elvis-Anum: Do we even have pianos?
Puckmosis: Yes. I’m not sure how we got it.
Agnes-Ata: We’ll never tell!
Lupinium: And for the opening ceremony, I’m going to kick the football!
Bea: Wow! He did it, even though Lucy took away the football!
Lupinium: I wouldn’t let a little thing like that stop me.
Lucy: I’m alright!
Queen Catshepsut the Golden: I declare the celebration open. Happy 100th, Charles Schulz!
Thomios: Who will volunteer for cleanup before the After-feast nap?
Ora Z: I’ll gather up the dishes in no time flat.
Beatrixia: I’ll go to the closet and get out the mats.
Puckmosis: I’ll wrap up the leftovers fast as can be.
Elvis-Anum: And I’ll put the dishes away with dignity.
Lupinium: Iggy and I will dust and we’ll sweep.
Floofnet: Then we’ll be ready for the after-feast sleep!
There are those who have transformed into more ursine creatures.
Happy Thanksgiving, may the Good Lord be blessing you and your family, one and all!
Queen Catshepsut the Golden: As your queen, I hereby declare the Feast of Gratitude has commenced!
All: Nommy, Nom, Nom!
The Queen: Serfig-Aro, will you give thanks??
Serfig-Aro: Gladly, Your Majesty.
Gracious Cat, Thank You for this bountiful feast. May we be truly grateful for this and all your blessings. Amen
Thomios: This year we have a special treat. Thanks to you, Fresh and Salty Water Cat and our new friend Iggy Shipwright, we have Diem Carp kibble pie prepared by my Great (In more ways than one) Uncle Floof! Thank you, all.
Beatrixia: And thank you, Royal Procurers, for your delicious cheese tray, the source of which we know not.
Alice-Ata: As always, we’ll never tell.
Floofnet the Joyous: And for dessert, we have Chocolate Everything, as well as a variety of desserts for those not in the chocolate mood (It happens).
All: Happy Thanksgiving to one and all!
