Hi Again From Shell

Now things are rocking and rolling in the story! Jane tells me that she had a lot of fun with this chapter, and that as she updated it for this blog, she’s starting to understand a couple of things about my story that had puzzled her. So you may eventually see a couple of changes to earlier chapters. There will certainly be some changes for the later part of the story, but you may not get to see what those were!

Happy Fourth of July! Every year on The Island is a great fireworks show over the Inner Harbor. My cousins always go. The fireworks are launched from a barge. I can’t wait to go with them this year!

Ho ho ho, from Santa

Okay, gang — Santa here to report on the posting of the latest Leaf of our story. Well, it’s Shell’s story mostly but some of us have a few things to say and do in it too–that are very important, I might add!

Please note: I’m not scared to get on and off buses!

From Annie: 3rd Leaf is plucked

Hi everyone! Annie here. Today at my tea house I’m not serving tea, but I am serving story!

We hope you like this leaf. The flavor may be a little strange, but hopefully fun and silly too —

Interruption from Santa: Annie, that metaphor doesn’t work! You can’t have flavors that are silly!

Excuse me! This is my post and I can write what I want. I think that flavors can definitely be fun and silly, and this one is. It’s certainly weird too. But hopefully interesting weird.

I and my associate Tam (who you will eventually meet) hope you enjoy this cup of the adventure!
