Happy St. Valentine's Day!
"Little Skunk," said Cat, "I have a kiss for Little Bear. It is from his grandmother. Take it to him like a good little skunk."
Little Skunk was glad to do that. But then he saw another little skunk.
She was very pretty. He gave the kiss to her.
And she gave it back.
And he gave it back.
And then Hen came along. "Too much kissing," she said.
"But this is Little Bear's kiss, from his grandmother," said Little Skunk.
"Indeed!" said Hen. "Who has it now."
Little Skunk had it. Hen got it back. She ran to Little Bear, and she gave him the kiss.
The skunks decided to get married. They had a lovely wedding. Everyone came.

This is my traditional post on Valentine's Day. At crazyacres we have chocolate, flowers, and spaghetti, as well as a nice evening out with some friends. SO give a kiss to someone, and get one back. Have a lovely day!
