O I love it! Mari and Merry :). Again, I love your characterizations, and I love your Bell! She's a jewel! Poor Marigold, and how gallant of Merry to try and help her as he did. And what a lovely party-much bigger than planned, I'll warrant! :)
God bless,

Hehehe! What a wonderful and funny story! I read parts of it a few weeks ago thanks to emails I got from Dreamflower but only managed to read the rest now. What a team they make, mari and Merry, lol! Well done. :D

Ah, dear--what a thing to happen on her birthday! Love the barrow and the Gaffer's familiar sentiments. Lovely!

Bravo! Bravo!! Bravisimo!!!

This was a wonderful story :) I love Mari and Merry's initial discomfort with, well, everthing it seemed, to then just doing what needed to be done and laughing over it all.

The anxiety and horror you painted for the family and the searchers was also spot on!


Author Reply: Thank you! It was so nice to write a story that was more comfort and comedy than angst!

I really enjoyed this sweet, humorous, tale of the misadventures of Mari & Merry. Their characters were so wonderful to read; I especially enjoyed Marigold's practicality and throwing some propriety to the wind.

I just love how Merry was rolled up The Hill in a wheelbarrow at the end! LOL!!

P.S. You've also inspired me with a chapter title for an upcoming series of mine.

Author Reply: A chapter title for an upcoming series? But now you have me curious! Are you going to let me know when I can read it?

This is lovely and so sweet. If this is a product of a heatwave then long may it continue. Oh, oh, only joking........ really I am hating every minute of it!

Author Reply: Oh, I hate heatwaves too. Now we're back to "normal" summer temperatures. Normally a little too warm for my blood, but twenty degrees cooler than the unbearable heat we had a little while ago, so who am I to complain?

Actually, I have a little more writing time than I had before, and hope to continue at least until the school year gears up again. Will keep pegging away just so long as the Muse keeps whispering.

(And so long as people keep giving me feedback, so that I don't have the feeling I'm just talking to myself. You know what they say about people who talk to themselves! Amazing how motivating such a thing can be. I thank you, once more, for yours.)

What fun to see this here, all in one piece! It was delightful to read it bit by bit on LJ, but it flows much better as one long story!

It so makes me grin! Merry is just so lovely in it, and so is little Marigold!

Author Reply: Yes, and now that it's finished I can start working on *your* belated birthday present, and then Bodkin's, and gotta squeeze Dana's (which promises to be delightful, if there's anything in the grin that comes over my face all unknowing whenever I think of it) in somewhere.
