Re: Annie Potts
This is a wonderful, entertaining story, Jacky.
Annie's venture into the bushes to clip some
of her grumpy neighbor's lilacs makes for a good story.
She's been stealing her neighbor's lilacs for years.
Her furtive gains were her pride and joy. This lily bush
produced the most beautiful, pungent flowers.
Alas, this year, Annie found the lilac bushes had grown
so tall, she'd need a ladder to reach them.
Unfortunately, a heavy rainfall made it impossible for
her to stand on the rocky ladder sitting on muddy
turf. This meant Annie would have to give up this
year's carefully plotted thievery.
Not so fast. All was not lost.
The neighbor with the lilac bushes
surprised Annie with the delivery of a
large vase of lilacs to Annie's front door
with a note to let her know
he's been enjoying "the show" every year
and felt compelled to give her the
flowers she couldn't reach on her own.
Bravo, Jacky !! You are a fine story teller !
I look forward to reading more.
