Who doesn’t like to get flowers?

To Peggoty’s on Sunday evening, for what turned out to be impromptu drinks and pizza with Peggoty, Barkis, Sawhorse Marilyn and Jeffrey’s dad. Striding through the snow came our new neighbor, henceforth to be known as Gorgeous George. GG presented each of Itchy Ankle’s unclaimed treasures with a bunch of tulips, and gave Mrs P. O’Rockwell roses in honor of St Valentine’s Day. Fabulous.

The Crone hurried home to put hers in water–and to show them off to Hansel and the Hottie. Bursting through the front door, flowers first, she caught the Hottie in a rare upright moment, sitting at the kitchen table, wrapped in a towel.  ” Look at these” exclaimed the Crone with a flourish ” Given to me by a real live man”.

” No way!” said the Hottie.  “Way!” said the Crone. And grinned.
