Well, we finally made it on time for a tea party. You see, we've been lurking for some time and finally decided we had to help Zeke out so headed to Africa last week, but got scared when they said we had to go in the back door because of our colors. So we hopped on the first ride back to the states we could find.
Well, it took us to Portland, Or. where one of the girls got in some trouble trying to evade being caught. But then when we heard via the buggy-web, that Lady Lou-La-Bella had been nabbed, we knew there was a reason we were here. You see, the same thug tried to nab one of us. Oh, he was posing as a legitimate scientist and all but we saw right through that. Us country girls are pretty savvy and we always travel in groups, esp. in the big city. His story is this; he's looking for almost extinct 9 spotted ladybugs. Well, he must have flunked math cuz anyone can plainly see Lou-La-Bella is a 5 spotted Ladybug. But, never fear, we have found her and are keeping her in a safe spot till we can catch the next ride to NY, where we can all have some treats and talk about our adventures.
Hope we get there before all the tea is gone. Our human friend is esp. fond of tea.

Hey! I missed you yesterday! Whew...what a relief! I am so happy that you figured this whole thing out! As many lady bugs as have showed up, we were beginning to really sweat the rescue! Thanks to you, we can just keep right on partying(we will save you some grub and tea!) and share the reward money! We will give you a double share, you know, gotta be fair!
I gotta tell you, don't every be skeered to be late to a party or to go in the backdoor! The backdoor is where its all at! The majority of the tea potters congregate there, I don't know, has to do with the fun of it! Giggle!
Now about your card! It rocks...love that little lady bug line up and the sun flowers are to die for! Such a fun card! And you can probably send it to someone! Whoo Hoo! Thanks for coming...I will be forever counting spots on ladybugs now! Snort!
