BUDDY: Our friends Frankie and Ernie have been offline (for the most part) while their typist lazed around for the summer
PERCY: No, Buddy is kidding. Their typist mom and their dad were actually working hard to downsize their possessions, pack up what's left, and move to Pencil Vane E Ah to be closer to family.
CYNDI: We have been waiting for them to return to blogging. We understand they moved Tuesday and today is supposed to be the big return day.
MERCI: So we would like to ... uh, what's that? Micah, do you see what I see?
MICAH: Yes. Guys, get your nose out of the goodies box. Listen to me! R-U-N!
CYNDI: Eeeeeeeeeek! We're running! Where do we go?
RUSTY: Oh, no. We heard a rumor that Frankie and Ernie's mom allowed some of her snow freaks to escape while she was packing them!
CYNDI: Frankie and Ernie are terrified of their mom's snow freaks. They wreak havoc wherever they appear. (The snow freaks, not Frankie and Ernie.)
PERCY: Guys, behind you! Look behind you! We're being invaded. R-U-N for your lives!
MARCUS: *waves paw* Hey, Percy. Do you want to come outside to play with us?
RUSTY: Turn around! Snow freaks! Snow freaks behind you.
SAM: No, we're not snow freaks. We don't like snow, remember?
MICAH: You nincompoops, TURN AROUND!
MERCI: Help! Mrs. Frankie and Ernie's Mom, helllllllp!
SAM: Oh, no, they're in back of us and in front of us. Where do we hide?
MERCI: Cyndi, push the screen door open and let us in!
Whispers heard from a secret hiding place.
MICAH: *low groan* Sam, get off of my paw. You weigh a ton.
SAM: Sorry, Micah. Someone pushed me.
CYNDI: Rusty, get your butt out of my face. Your long fur tickles my nose.
BUDDY: Will you all be quiet! They'll hear us.
PERCY: We're doing the best we can. It's very cramped in here.
MARCUS: It sure is. And dark. Pitch black. I'm not sure if I'm facing one of you or a wall.
RUSTY: Does anyone have a match?
MERCI: We're hiding in a tiny closet from renegade snow freaks. There's barely room to breathe and you want a match?
Along with a host of your other friends, we would like to welcome you back to blogging, Frankie and Ernie
. We recently read you already met a number of friendly canine neighbors and some humans too before you moved. And you'll be getting a new fence for your yard to keep you safe. We hope you will all love your new life in Pencil Vane E Ah. Be blessed and happy!
PS -- And please, please, please send your Mom to collect her snow freaks ASAP so we can come out of the closet! Cyndi has to pee.

. We used the Craquelure Filter in Photoshop Elements. It is supposed to make a painting look old, but you know Jan, she can't read, so she used it anyway to give the picture a different effect.
