Buttercup Needs to Visit Someone in Warmer Climates

Dahlins, Buttercup has just returned from a trip to Florida where I spent a wonderful week with my studly muffin, Bill. Buttercup would have stayed longer in the warm climate but Bill was in the process of moving to Mississippi and Buttercup just does not do heavy lifting or packing of boxes. That would mean Buttercup would have to do a four-letter word that begins with “W” and ends with a “K”. Ewwww!

So Buttercup just needs to go visit more friends in warmer climates. This Iowa weather sucks! It’s either snow and below freezing temps or ice and below freezing temps or, well, you get the idea. Buttercup does not like it at all.

Buttercup has a plan though. I think I will just knock out a wall in Ms. Rivers’ house and add a fireplace where I could lounge on a bear skin rug and drink champagne all day and stay toasty warm.

The first problem Buttercup has run into is I need stones to build it with. Anybody have any stones for Buttercup’s fireplace? Then, of course, there’s the money problem. Seems everybody I’ve talked to wants money to build fireplaces. I offered them a tryst with a duck but most of them just gave me a funny look. Yes, dahlin, I did say “most”. There was this one fellow who seemed to get all excited.

Anyway, Buttercup’s going to go find “Fangs” and see if he’ll knock down a wall for me. Toodles.
