I contend that as elephants are larger they have larger yards.

<thinks that elephants may have larger yards as they have four feet and probably put all four of them in their yards>

<Experiments with pulling Speckles about on wheels. A Speckled towed is only about 2 inches long - leaving much more room in the Treehouse.>

Is worried by the more chewy bits and wonders if they took the nails off before making the jam!


Gets some elk mousse and goes and stands in the rain, dear.

<has on black socks today, and since there are 2 and they are not odd at all, keeps them on, it's a bit chilly today>

<wonders if there were cocktail olives to go with the umbrella?>

<wonders if geg will ever relent and let OB in, or if there is more to this sub-plot than I know>

<removes wheels from the speckled toad and dodges Speckles' toes and looks about for Speckled Toe Service Truck, to no avail>

<there's never a toe truck around when you want one>

Has watched Speckles drive over a line of socks.

Wonders: If Speckles is doing a line of socks will this replace cocaine as substance of favour for abuse.

considers amount of abuse when one can find only one sock so thinks there may be something in it, in a quantum way.

Tried the secret tunnel under the Brunel Memorial Tapdancing School as recommended by Egon S on the previous page but found the way blocked by thousands of pies marked with a double "s" for secret store. An unfortunate collapse of said pies led me to having to chew my way out. Still outside the perimeterfence.
Trip over large book titled "a song of fire and ice part one" .Sit down start to read.

Puts down book

Notices a distinct sound of silence coming from the tree house

Gets up and peeps through fence surrounded knothole

There is no-one and nothing is stirring not even a festive mouse

Hums bravely

enters treehouse

finds OB humming bravely

waits until OB starts humming 'Road to the Isles'

interrupts

suggests humming chorus from Aida/madam Butterfly/whatever else

exits and rides on Hummer through treehouse fence thus releasing non-sequiters into the general human experience and allowing treehouse supporters hitherto trapped outside said fence to enter.

has pie marked with an 'S' but discovers a second label with an 'SS' underneath.

exits sighing 'deeply'.

notices that rapid outpouring of non-sequiters disguises a stealth attack by their non-negative counterparts.
