To prove the wearers of them wise,
A fulsome goat would then, by nature,
Excel each other human creature." - Thomas D'Urfey

And The Bat Goes On ...

Well, maybe not a bat at the moment, but that little Grassy and Gone still has a couple more adventures you haven't heard about.  Remember?  I told you we weren't through with him yet.  Sorry, but I did warn you.

Anyway, after that Dinky Dunderhead finished getting his thrills in the Chemotherapy department, he decided he needed a little break.  So, off he went to the next building to visit the World's Greatest Scone Maker.  You can see him, below, waiting at the counter to place his order.



I have to tell you, the World's Greatest Scone Maker does, indeed, make the world's greatest scones.  They are like no other scone you've ever had crumbly and luscious.  Not only does the World's Greatest Scone Maker make scones, but she also makes delectable soups, salads and sandwiches.  She uses everything organic that she can and makes it all with the largest dollop of pure love added.  She is an extraordinary person.  She even has a place in her heart for the little Puny and Putrid.  Now that ought to prove her worth for sure.  Just how many folks do you think can actually tolerate the little Insipid and Idiotic?  Here she is mixing up a batch of wonderfulness.


Isn't she a doll?  Why I bet she'd even give me a few Peanuts if I were to go in there.  Come to think of it, I wonder why the Goatmother never takes me?  Some little Green and Ghastly's have all the luck.  Just look at him trying to get on their good side.  Oy.


Well, the Goatmother may be done with radiation, but I'd be willing to bet she'll be back here visiting.  You can't keep a good SconeMother down.  But even if she doesn't go back for a scone, these ladies are so wonderful, she'll likely go just to keep in touch. Like the sign says, it's 'A Little Cafe, With A Whole Lotta' Love'!

Now then, should you chance to go to The Sweet Beginnings yourself, you'll find something very extra special about the World's Greatest Scone Maker.  There's much more here than meets the eye, and if you ask her how she came to be where she is, she'll tell you this: "Sometimes you just gotta' get out of your own way and let things happen."  I think the same could be said for living life to the fullest, don't you think?   Hmmm ... a fellow philosopher.  Who knew?

"Approach love and cooking with reckless abandon." -Dalai Lama

And, life, Mr. Lama.  Approach life that way too.  And Peanuts.  (Just thought I ought to add Peanuts.  You know.  Just in case...)

I do think you should get to visit some of these fun places. Not the scary ones, but definitely the ones with tasty treats!

So, the Lil Undead is caught on camera yet again! He seems to visit interesting people and wonderful places. Why does he always wear the same outfit? I am surprised such a social chap never worries about his wardrobe, actually lack there of. Fans may begin to murmur.

Marigold, you might want to make a subtle suggestion to someone...not that I am suggesting anything. Ever.

"Sometimes you just gotta' get out of your own way and let things happen." Isn't that the truth? Great words to live by. Trying too hard is highly over-rated. Maybe, the Lil Undead's simplified attire choice is on the right path after all!

Happy Halloween, Samhain! In case I don't have power, when the night comes.

Dear J,
What can I say. I *told* you he was an idiot. Plus he's a little OCD and he has a closet full of the same things just like Mr. Monk, who is, by the way, his hero.

Dear Millie,
Your darn buttin' I should get to visit some of these places. I just KNOW the World's Greatest Scone Maker would have a nice Peanut one. I just KNOW it!

Marigold said...

Dear Auntie,
Happy Halloween, Samhain to you too! Batten down the hatches and STAY SAFE!!!! Hold onto that witchy hat especially. With all that veil you might lost it in the wind! Come to think of it, perhaps you better not wear it during the storm. On the other hand, if the wind catches you, you're welcome to come and visit. :)

"Sometimes you just gotta' get out of your own way and let things happen." What a great philosophy, are you sure you didn't come up with that one Marigold?!? :)

Marigold said...

Dear Candy,
Unfortunately I didn't. But see? I told you she was a special lady! :)

Snowcatcher said...

What an adventure this little Green Guy is having! Scary, traumatizing, socializing, and now fattening up, too??? Oh, and by the way, I think he owes you a peanut or two just for telling the tale.

Marigold said...

Dear SnowCatcher,
Trust me. I remind him of that very fact EVERY chance I get!

Kelly said...

Scones and tea. What a wonderful afternoon treat. I think you should definitely go back weekly for scones. I could see the Goatmother with you hogging the back seat. I bet goats would like scones! Peanut butter scones maybe?

Marigold said...

Dear Kelly,
Yes!!! Peanut Butter Scones. Or even just scones with Peanuts chopped up in them. Here! Here! I'd even get in the car for that. As long as there was no stopping by the vet's office.

Mrs. Micawber said...

Another missed post! (sigh)

But I found it anyway. (gloat)

The Scones sound delicious - what flavour did L.U. choose?

Marigold said...

Dear Mrs. Micawber,
That's okay. Just say the Universe at large, 'Thank you VERY much, Blogger' and then go on. Who knows? It might be as good a solution as any other way.

The L.U. had Date/Pecan. Yum!
