A Lovely Holiday Story: The Courtship of Mr. Turtle and Ms. Strawberry

For Marja: hee hee

As was his way, Mr. Turtle took his time strolling through the garden. When he came upon Ms. Strawberry, he knew she was the one.

"She was so soft and plump," he told his cousin Thomas, "and her scent was so sweet and intoxicating."

They fell in love immediately and within the month they were married.

They spent their wedding night under a sturdy Oak Tree, using lettuce leaves for their blanket, warm moss for their matress, and two grapes for their pillows.

"Do you mind?" Ms. Strawberry asked him: "I like it slow."

"No problem there." Mr. Turtle said confidently.

The End.

  7. I agree with Snowbrush completely and just wait until a candidate from Minnesota starts mentioning "the Book" and run with it about this union.

    Lovely, perfect for a Sunday morning to read with scones and latte. Wish you were here.
