A Journey Through

What is that racket.

Oh it is Snooples playing Dad's maracas and singing COPA CABANA into the window fan.

A Journey Through Ben's

Now what.

Nini's bread dough mixer. I can see Ninis poofy chef's hat moving back and forth in the kitchen.

I hope that Nini is making Lamb Tarts.

Guess what. Mom and Dad want a beagle. They are training Snooples to be a beagle. Snooples drinks out of the toilet ok, but she is having difficulty learning the proper way to drag rotted road kills into the yard.

She is practicing on rotted deer's legs but she gets confused.

This is hard on Snooples.

A Pen Pal Can Be Somewhat

You Ought to Try Writing to a

Pen Pals

6th Grade Thesis
By Gracie De LaRue

Having a pen pal is like you are writing to yourself if you lived way the heck over somewheres that you wouldn't be caught dead in.

But there you are anyways, and it is kind of interesting.

Also you do not have to put up with inconveniences such as starvation.

One bad thing is you don't know who the hell it is you are writing to it could be a wart hog

Dear Muffin,

Thanks in advance,

Dear Muffin,

I am going bat nuts.

Last night I was up until 3 a.m. writing my 6th grade thesis on Wok Cookery and then his morning I got woken early to the noise of soosaphones.

Snooples and Chessie were clumping in the parlor to Soosa marches on the phonograph. Ninis collection of antique potato peelers were scattered all over the floor.

Potatoes were stacked like cannonballs in the kitchen. There were some little piles of potato bits.

Snooples and Chessie had gotten into the potato bin. They had sorted out 8 little round potatoes. They had hollowed out those little potatoes. They had made shoes out of them.

They were clumping around in potato shoes.

This is the kind of life I have.

Your Friend,

Dearest Gracie,

Please explain what is the diarreah. I will send healing herbs!

It shall be good practice for when I become a large animal veterinarian, which is my greatest dream.

All My Very Best,



May 18, 2002

Dear Muffin,

If you want to be a large animal veteranarian you ought to talk to my big brother Charlie. He is a large animal veteranarian. He specializes in Beef Cattles.

Also he plays electric bass and upright bass and practically any kind of bass you throw at him.

You may have heard of his band it was called THE BEAT. He doesn't show up in any of the photos on account of he is only 1 foot tall.

Yours Truly,


P.S. Nevermind about the diarreah. Ben seems to have gotten past this.

Dear Muffin,

Today while Mom and Dad were away buying lumber we all made potato shoes! We are going to wear them to school tomorrow!

Bens potato shoes have sprouts at the toes. Pias are knee-high baking potato go go boots.

Ninis however are the best because they are very long and pointy on account of Nini used yams.

My potato shoes are perfect balls.

Anyways, you might want to try some potato shoes.

Gotta go,
