The Hamper Business didn't bring in much crinkly cabbage and Jemmy just about broke even after we sold off the delivery lorry. Jemmy was a bit knocked for two minutes about the staffing problems but she was right not to be disheartened for long as Aleron the chocolate coloured woolly wild Llama proved to Jemmy to be the most loyal Mafia Llama.
Jemmy had rescued Aleron the Llama from being done in due to his erratic crazy behaviour at the wildlife park and Jemmy gave him a job as Christmas Tree Plantation Security. It had been quiet for months without any attempted tree thefts and Atticus had been teaching Aleron Karma for Llamas to settle down the crazy llama mind. Atticus also patiently learnt to communicate with Aleron and discovered the poor Llama had severe toothache and an ingrowing nail. OUCH !! Now that would drive you nuts wouldn't it!? Well, Jemmy got a doctor and dentist out to Aleron and the pain and toothy torment was ended.
Aleron is so dedicated to Jemmy Jim Jams he kept his big peepers open and fluffy ears twizzling and it paid off. The thieves came back to the Christmas tree plantation with big saws and had the fright of their lives when Aleron charged out!
They legged it!! He He! I am presently tasked by Jemmy to discover who the bad bunny intruders were. I suspect it was the Morello Cherry Brothers, a rival Mafia Gang. Their ice cream business dealings were on a real slippery downer due to the sniverly cold weather so it would make sense that they turn to seasonal Christmas crime to get through the winter.
Jemmy awarded Aleron the Mafia Bunny Gold Star for the protection of Mafia Assets....
Due to the Hamper Business failing mainly caused by Lollita Piglet wolfing lots of stock Jemmy sent Gizzy and I all over the Bunny Manor dishing out the remaining food supplies to lots of little animals who in these terrible economic times were skint without a single nut in the larder!
Mrs Squirrel was particularly thrilled by the nut delivery we made today. Her fella Sammy Squirrel is still in Nutsville Jail awaiting trial for chocolate peanut thieving so she is finding life very difficult. I have assured Mrs Squirrel that Jemmy has a lawyer on the way and we have promised Mrs Squirrel that her Sammy will be home for Christmas.
I was anxious at first as she was trying on a big furry hat and Cotswold furry boots and a thick duffel coat. Jemmy had accidentally done in a branch of the Transylvanian Mafia by mistakenly supplying them with the deadly Schnappsie fuel and I was fearful of her traveling to Transylvania alone. She assured me not to worry. I caught a glimpse of her plane ticket and just between us dear readers the boss is not going to Transylvania but off to Russia on Bunny Business!
Lavinia has started evening classes and she needed someone to look after the marmalade kittens whilst she learns Advanced Rural Thrift. All of the kittens love good ol' Tatty Mudflinger, so he was the obvious choice of kitten care for the evening.
Tatty played cards with all the kittens and then they pretended to be marooned on a desert island. Tatty put a washing line across the room and put a bed sheet over it and they all got inside the tent. They all had such a giggle, Tatty then asked if they would like a story. He took the washing line down as he thought Lavinia would be cross that her sitting room had been turned into a desert island camp. Tatty put the duvet on the floor and he told them to get into the big nest and all the kittens snuggled down to listen to Tatty read "The Famous Five". Everyone fell asleep...zzzzzzZZ.
When Lavinia got home she quietly crept in to find them all snoozing. Angus opened his peepers when his Mum came in and happily said " Ooo Mum, Dad... took us to a desert island and we built a big nest! "
Lavinia was the happiest cat in the world at that moment, (Ahhhhhh) - she LOVES Tatty Mudflinger with all her heart and if you ask me dear readers I can hear wedding bells !!
Ahhhhhh (sniff) ..I'm a sappy ol mog ain't I dear friends but its so nice to be able to tell you good news!
Cheerie-pip and Ta Ta.
