The Boarding House

Everyone in Lickety-Split has been very curious about the old "Muddle Mansion".  Someone has been in there fixing it up (and it badly needed it since Mr. Muddle deserted it for the 'old folks home').  Who bought it?  What do you think they're going to do with it? Isn't it looking lovely these days? The questions have been bouncing all over town.

The other day an ad appeared in the back of the Lickety-Split Tribune - complete with picture.  It created quite a stir among the 'proper' ladies around town.

Announcing The Opening
"The Muddle House"
We provide rooming for misfits 
and free spirits.
For a small rent you will have a
private room with bath.
A hot breakfast will be provided every morning.
Only the whimsical need apply.

Now what do you think they mean by that????

"I have fallen in love with the imagination.  And if you fall in love with the imagination, you understand that it is a free spirit.  It will go anywhere, and it can do anything." - Alice Walker



  1. Oh my...I not only want to move into the Muddle House, I also want to move into your imagination, Penny!

  2. Oh my gosh, this Alice Walker quote is so amazingly appropriate for this post.

    You had better watch out. All your characters might be applying, but then what a wonderful place this would be for you to visit. I heard a whisper that your girls are talking about a stray dog or cat to befriend. Have you heard about it yet?
