A fairy tale of Buttercupland...
One day the Prince of a great Kingdom grew tired of his toys of childhood. His father, the kind King, looked for a good home for the ape that had been a companion of the Prince. He left the little ape on the doorstep of a sweet Princess. Princess Buttercup had requested that her colleagues not bring in any more sweet friends, because she had run out of room on her desk to work. But when she saw the lorn foundling on her doorstep her heart opened, and she welcomed him. They all lived happily every after...
On my doorstep!
Generally, Pepe would welcome new folks to Buttercupland, but he was busy hanging out with, left to right, Opus, Elvis, Kitty Cat, Souper Bear and Screamer.
Sockette, on the left, welcomed D.K. to Buttercupland and to membership on the Blog Editorial Advisory Board.
...Except that the foundling would like a new name for his new life. We've been calling him D.K., but now that he's an editor he'd like something more dignified than the initials of a video game. Yes, he once had a career with Donkey Kong, but that's long ago and far away.
Please help name this foundling. The editorial board -- if Pepe stops climbing my office book case -- and a few of my non-furry office colleagues will choose the winning name. The winner gets a mystery prize, but it does includes some useful travel items, and don't we all need a surprise in the winter!
Please send your suggestions by next Sunday, January 27 and I will post D.K's new name on Monday, January 28. The only requirement is that naming is limited to citizens of Buttercupland, so please be a follower.
It was a glorious sixty degrees today and it's down to thirty-five already. Yikes, the winter has truly arrived. I'm going to cozy up in my striped socks and have my evening cup of tea.
Wishes for a cozy evening!
