Here we see Berenice, the daughter of unclebluebottle and Bertha Bathsheba Bluebottle-Bugosi-Coop, decked out in her finest bumblebee outfit........
Berenice was not insane, and spent her days buzzing around the garden and trying to fly.....just like her daddy.......Her favourite pastime was covering her shoes with adhesive tape and trampling all over the flower bed, in order to collect pollen for her evening meal.......
Rumour has it that she once stung the postman, but this was never confirmed........
Tomorrow I will show an early photo of Berenice with her three brothers......who were not bees.......

Rahab the Harlot from the Book of Joshua?

peterpantz

Madame-of-the-temple.....I don't have any sweat pantz.....only my sweaty pan.......

gemstone

What scripture passages are you studying and what will be the lesson of the day?

Church_Lady

Peter dear,You are welcome to come to my Bible study class on Friday but could you please wear some pantz? Even sweat pantz will do.

gemstone

On the positive side, juneeeee...she's saving two other women!

juneshone

oh here we go another fan. how does she do it?

peterpantz

Patty's told me ALL about you, madame-of-the-temple..........maybe we should get together some time?.....I'm no flash in the pan you know!......

Church_Lady

Number one hot topic? Really? Finally my talents have been recognized!

juneshone

anything for a laugh he says. You know your Ladies Circle, well he has a Gentleman's Circle whom he regales with tales of weird happenings in his love life. I hear you are the number one hot topic of ribaldry. What a perfect couple you make you deserve each other

Church_Lady

Then he's back for more. I can't help it if I am so ravishing and hot that he can't resist me..

juneshone

Come on Churchy, he's seen it all before and got the photo's

gemstone

Yes but the lisle stockings and orthopaedic shoes probably did give him pause for thought!

Church_Lady

Mr. P Squatty, I should like to make you aware of the fact that I have surveillance cameras all around my house and I have proof of what you did to my lawn! Also what were doing peeping in my bedroom window? Did you enjoy looking at my svelte and sensuous body as I undressed? You know you did.

juneshone

oh she's fast alright

lelabugosi

Hee-Hee!....Yes, I believe madam-of-the-temple to be a fast learner also, as well.......

juneshone

she's holier than thou anyway, but is that a good thing? I feel sorry for her, a while back she told me that she could never join in conversations at the Ladies Circle as nothing interesting ever happened to her. so she cast her mind around for something she had a talent for that she could entertain them with and could only come up with sexploits. It's not that she likes men that way very much but the Ladies can't get enough of her adventures now, so she feels important for the first time. They particularly like the bad sex stories and they always ask for more Pee Squirt tales because laughter is the best medicine. this is her story of course...........

patsquire

Churchy, my theory on those dead spots goes like this: whenever you toss a little Holy Water on your lawn to water it, the Lord expresses His displeasure by killing that patch of grass. The question is, is He mad at the misuse of the Holy Water, or just generally P-O'd at your holier-than-thou attitude!

lelabugosi

He's probably doing exactly that on his pink bike.......

juneshone

so there, you never got over the excitement of squat'n'pot, I would keep away from Churchlady's lawn or you might be reliving the past too vividly.

patsquire

Actually, I was squatting when I got shot!

2/2/69. NVA machine gunner in a bunker, shooting bursts at my men, me looking for him using a tactic called snoopin' 'n poopin' - - dashing forward a couple steps and dropping into a deep squat, looking around, and doing it again, etc. On my last dash I squatted down right in front of the bunker, about 5 yards away.

And that's when the REAL excitement began!

juneshone

got it in one CL, are you sorry you shot next door's cat now?

lelabugosi

(hee-hee!)..............

Church_Lady

So that explains the the dead brown spots on my front lawn!

juneshone

what, like he squats to squirt? I'll believe it

jignut

Could we call him Squat Squirt? It has a nice ring to it. I think it quite fitting for someone who rides a pink bicycle!

Plumpossum

Perfect!

Elfie

Squat Pire!! - it does "taste" good!!

juneshone

oh Squat Pire you got left out so here is anew name for you, like it?

patsquire

You see, zzaashannie, names here in Bugosiland are rendered as spoonerisms. Our host, lelabugosi was actually born Bela Lugosi, jr. sr. I myself, NOT PARTAKING of the Tadpole Wine, appear in clear text as it were, so to speak, that is to say meaningwise. But outsiders such as Shook Brields or Tustin Jimberlake or literary giants like Kephen Sting, Pames Jatterson and Peatrix Botter get the Spooner treatment.

lelabugosi

thingy-annie.......Doald Rahl (for that was his name) once lived next door to the Bluebottles, and he was always peering over the garden fence............he must have based his character on Berenice........

Ah I think this child is like the one in the Roald Dahl Tales of the Unexpected from the 1970s. Inone story the parents fed their baby on royal jelly and she turned into a bumle bee

bzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

bzzzzzzzzzzz bzzzzzzzzzzz

bzzzzzz

I can almost here the theme music playing now!

Elfie

OHHHHHHHH!! Indeed, I like this much better than those ears!!

gemstone

lela's short little legs and cute little knees in his postman's disguise

Elfie

Oh my, what is being reveiled right now??? - a great historical question really - those knees??????

gemstone

Everybody recognizes those cute little knees!

lelabugosi

Fear not, Mr.Le-Squirt........we won't!........
precious-pebble....you may have a point there........I am glad you are not on 'the other side' so to speak, in a manner, after a fashion, sort of.......Did you really recognise me?......

gemstone

So, you're saying the suffering that YOU thrust upon US is unimportant.

I won't feel sorry for you but I will feel sorry for all the rest of us!

patsquire

"...it's not that I don't suffer, it's that I know the unimportance of suffering....Don't feel sorry for me." - John Galt - Atlas Shrugged, Ayn Rand.

gemstone

Just caught a glimpse of your profile picture, lela. Considering that you originally, at first, supposedly disguised yourself to escape from an unruly gang of thugs, I think you really have to rethink your disguise, or go to an advanced school of disguise...especially when you label one ear "L" and the other ear "B"...just saying

lelabugosi

True, nobody took the slightest bit of notice........(apart from david-numbers, sort of).......just as it should be.......

patsquire

You see? I try to refocus the madding crowd on the ISSUE AT HAND but everybody wanders off to La-La Land, to Wonderland, to I-don't-know-where (and they-don't-know-where). Have another sip of Tadpole Wine, folks. You might as well, because I love you all, and lelabug loves you all, and everybody loves everybody, and if it all ends at the D.O.L.L.S. House.........well..........too bad!

lelabugosi

Madness is all in the mind........
Where are we?......

juneshone

sorry about the question marks, after all there is no question about it

jignut

Yes, we are all mad here.......wouldn't have it any other way.

juneshone

Here's a nice bit from Alice, reminds me of our present situation

?But I don?t want to go among mad people," Alice remarked.
"Oh, you can?t help that," said the Cat: "we?re all mad here. I?m mad. You?re mad."
"How do you know I?m mad?" said Alice.
"You must be," said the Cat, or you wouldn?t have come here.?

Tatinha

My favourite was 'Jabberwocky', in Portuguese, Jaguadarte 'as lesmolisas tolvas roldavam e relviam os gramilvos. Estavam minsicais as pintalouvas os momirratos davam grilvos' and the tail poem.

juneshone

Shoes, ships, sealing wax. no just a Doctor Hook song, 'Couple More Years'

david06520

Cabbages??
Kings??

jignut

Alice in Wonderland was my favorite too,Tatinha. I still have the book that was my mother's copy that she gave to me. It was printed in 1917. I love the illustrations. I still like to read the poems in it. My favorite is the Walrus and the Carpenter.

Tatinha

June, you really a British lady! Only a British could write Alice in Wonderland (one of my favourites) or Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds.

Elfie

Just here!!

juneshone

yes I've been to somewhere and found it was nowhere at all

patsquire

Hee-hee. "Civil litigation" is a term of art in the law, not a descriptive or adjectival usage!

Hee-hee, gemmy!

gemstone

I didn't realize that there-there were ANY civil lawyers of any variety anywhere.

patsquire

A well deserved *chuckle* David.

I've been there, but they're right, there is no there, there. And I'll tell you something I learned after decades of searching: there are no good civil litigation lawyers there, either.

david06520

*chuckle*

Plumpossum

But there's no there, there.

david06520

there there


there


there

patsquire

OK, I've been hinting around, pussyfooting, dissembling all day and not ONE SINGLE BUGOSIITE has caught on or chimed in. Sometimes LIKE TODAY I think the old Bugsilanders were a lot more WITH IT and today's population is a bunch of NICE FOLKS!

And some of you, like Dogdaze and octomom, know that NICE FOLKS get under my skin!

What I'm saying is, this evil little Ugly Duckling, who sticks out like a sore thumb from her peers in this photo, is DESCENDED (and boy, do I mean that) from a long line of Bugosis, each and every one of whom has the pure essence of bilious evil, the foul stench of depravity and ruinous corruption coursing through his, her and its veins, and all of whom bleed chartreuse instead of red when nicked.

Those are not beautiful, perfectly formed wings! Look! They are faded, stained, crumpled and deformed. How did they get that way? Through carelessness and misuse, through negligence and abuse. Her raggedy outfit is a mess, her socks are a disgrace, her shoes unshined and scuffed.

She sports not a halo, but a set of Devil's horns. And finally, again, those eyes! Those evil, heinous death-ray eyes. UGH!

It must be the Tadpole Wine. I have railed against it long and hard, but I confess it must be a losing battle. More and more each day, the world falls under lelabug's thrall, as the plague of Taploe Wine Consumption spreads farther and wider.

Oh, woe is the world. Woe. Sob. (s h u d d e r . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .)

david06520

eeek now they's forgs.

lelabugosi

tads......................bzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz..............(Eeek! It's catching!).........._....

Plumpossum

What did they useta be?

david06520

[[on an unrelated note I am happy to report that I heard the first spring peepers peeping down by the creek tonight as I came home from rehearsal - the tadpoles are not what they useta be]

unclebluebottle

BzzzzzzzzzzzPHTZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ!!..............

Surreal_Heidi

What happened to her wings? They look crumpled and dirty. Obviously, her parents were neglectful and never taught her to look after herself properly, and practice good grooming. Since her mother is insane, her father takes all the blame for being neglectful of her education! Uncle Bluebottle should be ashamed of himself!!!

Elfie

Perhaps he said silly things about her outfit!! He really shouldn't have!!!

lelabugosi

That could well be part of the colony, precious-pebble!.....(I believe she is still in France)....
thousands-of-cakes........she probably bit the postman AND stung him!......

gemstone

Froglet just posted what looks like a family picnic for Berenice...or this might be her colony in France.

cakes1947

That's quite the outfit!! She probably bit the postman, not stung him!! Fun puzzle....thanks Lela!! :)))
(time, 1:43)

gemstone

So, is this little honey now a Bee girl in France? I imagine it's more legal there...although probably not as legal as in Amsterdam.

lelabugosi

Well, that is some comment.....coming from an overweight, middle-aged man riding a little girl's pink bike!...........(The LeSquirt family are INSANE!)......
Tatty-from-Brazil-nut...........Berenice is very fertile........
david-many-numbers......her wings and my ears are related in a relative way.........(Yes, her wings are elegant and perfectly formed).......

Elfie

Oh patsquire, she is a beeeezy bumblebee!! No time to be evil!! - and why should she??

patsquire

As nice as everyone is being to this little girl, doesn't she . . . I mean isn't she . . . hasn't she got a sort of evil glint in her eyes? Doesn't she look like she'd gladly shoot death rays out of her eyes if she could? I mean, that stare, that pose! And she's a Bugosi, you know, and evil flows in the veins of the whole Bugosi clan!

Elfie

SO good news!! Wish her all well and a nice beehaviour from anybody!! Dear UB you must be proud!!

Tatinha

I imagine that Berenice is a crucial member of this large family then. When I say large I mean that. A queen bee lays 2000 eggs a day!

lelabugosi

Evening all!......
When she turned 18, Berenice flew off to France to form an art colony on the riviera.........At first unclebluebottle was devastated, believing she had formed an ANT colony, but upon being reassured, he became resigned to the fact that his little princess had now become a queen........and was happy that she was now a busy Bee......

david06520

It seems to me that her wings and your ears are related somehow, perhaps, perchance.

Elfie

Ohhhh, isn't she the perfect beeing!! You must bee very happy UB!! Where is she now??

teamac

She is a little darling, and I hate to say this as I think Children are beautiful creatures and gifts from God...but perhaps, possibly, perchance and maybe... the girls are in the back ground ...because the could not compare to little Berenice.

unclebluebottle

Aaah, my little Bee........she would never hurt a fly!..........bzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz........zzzzz.....

grannygoatlady

Yes, I can see how Uncle BB and BBBBC would be very proud of young BBB.....such pretty blond curls, such exquisite form, such magnificent wing-spread, such a flair for attire......such bony knees and saggy socks....eeeek

patsquire

Oh, no! I had not noticed the girls in the background until I solved the puzzle, and I hate to say it but they all look like the perfect little white-swan-children of the fairy tale, which makes sweet little Berenice the Ugly Duckling!!! Oh, my, my, my.

juneshone

she is so pretty, flap your wings and fly little girl bzzzzzzzzzzzzz
