an end and a beginning


little bunnie fu fu
got up on
Easter Morning
and put on her new dress
that the lady had made for her


look how happy fu fu is
!!
with her finely stitched dress
that has lace cap sleeves




and a beautiful picot edge

fu fu felt so much better when she was well dressed
and not hanging around in her strangely made knicker shorts
she is after all
a prim and proper little bunnie
and there is nothing like something new
to make a little bunnie feel good about things
she jumped up and down and squealed a little bunnie squeal
and thanked the lady profusely
for she is also a very polite little bunnie
after all that had happened in such a short time
fu had been feeling a little
down
depressed
verklempt
blue
sapped
beat
and
all wrung out
but now things were looking up
and it felt
good

the lady had shown her all the things that had come in over the
machine that knows all
and the thing that shows all



there was a whole collage of all that had happened
on the other side of the
big pond
and it all looked so
...
as it should

Henri had finally
f i n a l l y
found his way back to
Auntie's Beautiful English Country Garden
and when he'd got off the bus
there
t h e r e
was
JOE
who had also managed to find his way back
the two cousins greeted each other with much relief and joy
and when they had hurried up to Aunties house
they found that she was in fact out
but there
waiting for them
was a little bunnie girl called
Sophie
JOE's new little sister
what a surprise
she let them in and the cousins caught up on all the adventures they had had
over a good strong pot of
coffee
coffee is a good thing to talk over
and
they had much to talk about
.....



the pictures showed Henri making himself at home
choosing his room for the night
the one with the beautiful old rocking chair
that made him feel like he was being rocked by the ocean
for a sailor never really truly gets back his land legs
not after being on so many adventures and quests
as our world travelling marine type
had been on
and when Auntie came home
she was so very
very very very
happy to see her
JOE
and meet his third cousin twice removed
she made them a big hedgehog chocolate cake
and in honour of Henri's nautical background
some pirate cakes
that he thought most appropriate
for a mariner
he could put one in his finely stitched duffel bag and it wouldn't get all sticky

Henri asked Auntie if she still had the goat he had seen in a photo he had found
while looking at her albums
and she said
no she didn't
goats who eat little girl's dresses aren't invited to stay
!!
and then Auntie  told
JOE
that he was going to live with a new family
who would love him as much as she did
and she thought it would be good for
JOE
to grow up with a boy and learn all the things that boys and their toys learn
to be good and solid citizens of the world
and he and his new little sister
Sophie
would live a happy ever after life
and have all the things they would ever ever need
she would miss him dreadfully
but it was best
and
best is always
best
fu fu looked at the lady and asked
is it really
is best always
best
and the lady said
yes fu fu
JOE
and his new little sister
will have a wonderful life
growing up with the children
and you won't have to worry about him anymore
he will be where he should be
and he will be loved for a long
long long
time
just as you will be

and then
the lady said
I have a little surprise for you
little bunnie fu fu
there are some new little members of the
desktop gang
who would very much like to come and stay with you
here on the desk top
and be with
you
and
poppy
and
little joe
and
blue
and because you collected all those clouds with silver linings
they are such a happy bunch
alway smiling and sunny
and
very very very
just what you need types
...
would you like to meet them
and
little bunnie fu fu
said in her
quiet soft way

WOULD I
OH yes PLEASE


well let me introduce you to
Lilly
the lamb
.....
she is made from the softest of  merino wools
and will keep you company always




and let me introduce you to
Emily
who is made of the finest wool too
and she can't wait to get to know you and be your very
very very
best friend

and fu fu noticed
how well dressed Emily was
and that she had some very striking stockings and little tiny shoes on her rather big feet
but fu didn't say that she just thought it
for she is very polite and would never want to hurt some bunnies feelings
fu fu looked at the lady and asked
quietly
so
I won't be seeing
JOE
any more
and the lady said
no
not for  while
but maybe once in a while we'll get to see him and see how he's doing
but you have to know that he will be alright and safe
and the most important of all
he will be loved



and her new little friends put their little tiny lamb and bunnie arms around
fu
and said
we'll be here with you and we'll all grow up and learn all the things we can
and when we see
JOE
he'll know that you are alright and happy and safe
and
most important of all
loved
.....
and fu fu knew that all would be well
JOE
would be well
and
Henri would be well
and on his way soon
to new adventures and quests
and he would send word
when he could
by the thing that knows all
or
magic shells
or carrier pigeon
or
one of his new travel agents

the birds who had carried him so far
to find his long lost
but now found and safe
third cousin twice removed
JOE
fu fu's bun across the big pond

and
although things had turned out for the
best
she would always think of him in the quiet times
and remember the first time she ever saw him

on the thing that knows all

and the thing that shows all



will any of us ever forget
I don't think so
: >  : > : >

au revoir my bun
♥♥♥
whispered fu fu
till we see you again
♥♥♥♥




 and fu fu returned to her new companions
and they sat on the flower carpet
and made plans for the future
a future full of
happy ever afters
......................
and little joe
asked
what does one have to do
to get some chocolate
because you know
it is
EASTER
the day of
all things bunnie
and
more sweets than any
creature could ever
ever ever
need
.......
and with that
they all climbed off the desktop
and went in search of
something
chocolate
........................................................

and the desktop gang
would like to wish
all fu fu fans
a very
Happy Easter

Happy Spring

Happy Happy
....................................

EVERYTHING
