DARQ: Here I come, ready or not . . .
. . . and to wish you and all my blog followers a
Happy Mother’s Day!
CATHERINE: And you’re in costume?
DARQ: How else was I to give an “old-fashioned” Mother’s Day greeting? By the way, I love the dress you made for me. Jane Austin would be thrilled.
CATHERINE: I would imagine so. And the hat?
DARQ: Awesome! It makes me feel like I could live in the 1800’s.
CATHERINE: Speaking of Jane Austin, which book of hers did you like best?
DARQ: ‘Emma’ of course. Oh, and thanks for the handkerchief, pearl necklace, and the new pair of shoes that go with my dress.
CATHERINE mutters softly “you and shoes,” then she says: You’re welcome.
DARQ: Yoi, Catherine, what do you think of all these beautiful spring flowers and this mini-rose? I plucked all of them just for you.
CATHERINE: In other words, you picked my garden clean.
DARQ laughs, then says: Not quite, but are you sure these are real flowers?
CATHERINE scrutinizes the cascade of flowers: Omygosh! Some are real and some are silk — you pilfered from my seasonal silk flower supply!
DARQ: How else was I to put together so many blooms?
CATHERINE: Well, okay, you did a terrific job of blending the real and the fake. It’s hard to tell which is which.
DARQ: Thank you, and now, Catherine, let me make the official announcement:
