Cousin T: I came as quick as I could Miss Margie. Bobby Fink delivered your message to high tail it over here and bring my goo-lashes. But it hain’t rained in weeks - more likely to snow I’d say.

Margie: Slow down, Cousin T, and open your ears.
You know how folks make all these New Year's revolutions? Some say they want to diet or take a trip or whatever. You know?

Cousin T: Yeah, like for instance, mine is to quit having damn fool notions

Margie: Good. Here's my notion then. You take that hose of ours and go in the back yard and run water until the back fills up. That water should freeze real quick. We'll be ice skating in no time.Then we'll charge folks to come skate and tell them this is good exercise.

Cousin T: Them revolutions is over rated anyhow. Do you think I should cut the grass first so we get less of it sticking up through the ice?

Margie: Cousin T, you know I don't know a thing about yard work. Wait. Wouldn't a little grass sticking up be a pretty decoration?

You decide and I'll go make your fried apple pies.

Ladies, you'd better make sure your insurance policy is up to date! I see $ signs and they aren't yours as you race all the way to the bank! I doubt that you have many budding Krist Yamaguchis in your neighborhood and I think an aging Dororthy Hamill should stay off skates and simply sit and drink your tea. Maybe you could charge for tea parties by a roaring fire instead.

Don't forget to let me know when it is time for ice skating. Grammy just took out a big life insurance policy on me and she said I can do any fool thing that I want.
Maybe you should dig a big hole first. That way when it melts you'll have a swimming pool.
Happy Ice Skating.

Margie and Edna said...

Margie: RN, I see your point. Maybe I will have a tea party instead. How much would you pay for tea with the Margiedales?

Grampy, that sounds very suspicious. Are you sure Grammy hasn't met one of my Margiedales?
I think you're right about that swimming hole. I'll talk to Cousin T.

Many thanks to Cousin T(Barry) for going along with old ladies' ideas.

RNSANE said...

Oh, my goodness, tea with the Margiedales would command a hefty price! I'd have to start breaking all my piggybanks for that!

Poetic Shutterbug said...

How about we just have the Margiedales strip down and perform their shenanigans on that ice so that the "after party" consists of your special tea and us warming the Margiedales - after all, they'll be freezing their &^%$# off and will need warmth from us :0 We better do this before Edna returns.

Margie and Edna said...

Margie: Carmen & Poetic, you're both right. We must be quick before Edna returns.

Oh, my god, fixed income or not, I'd do without food for that party. I can eat black eye peas for a week!!!

Poetic Shutterbug said...

Carmen, same here. Blackeyed peas and ramen for a week. I'm there, bring on the pillows :)

RNSANE said...

Jo, where is it now that Margie and Edna live? Does Virgin America fly there? More like Crop Duster Carriers. But for an evening with the margiedales = oh, and, of course, Margie, it's worth it. And it would be nice to see you again!

Margie and Edna said...

Margie: The Margiedales have an offer you can't refuse. Stay here free and eat your meals with us in exchange for teaching the Margiedales some new dance moves.

Oh, they want to know if Jo and Carmen like mud wrestling?
