The Professor, the Physicist and the Palaeontologist arrive

It was almost a month after the P Party
The Playground had been dismantled, the string of Party lights taken down, the Pogo stick brought inside and the REAL Pony hired for Pony rides had been returned despite wails of protest from Sprite.

One evening I found two elderly gentlemen and a young lady wandering in the garden.
“We were just enjoying Peripatetic Perambulations around your Pleasant Property with Pauses for Pondering Philosophical Problems. We are here in response to your kind invitation to the P Party”

One of the elderly gentlemen pulled a pile of papers from his pocket and began to unfold them and tried to smooth out the creases.
“There’s yours, Patrick!” he said and handed over an invitation addressed to

The rest of his papers fluttered to the ground and the young lady and I bent to pick them up for him. I picked up an invitation addressed to ‘Physicist’.
“I guess this is your invitation,” I said.

“No, that’s my invitation” said the young lady. “I’m Paula the Physicist. This is Pa Peter, my Paternal grandfather, he is a Professor and a Poet of Prominence”

“I do have an invitation to ‘Professor’ and I will be Presenting a Paper and hosting a Poets’ Corner at this Prestigious P Party. It must be in with those papers somewhere” he said. I could see he was becoming rather agitated.

“Here’s your invitation Pa” said Paula
She read the invitation as she handed it over. Obviously it was the first time she had seen it. “Oh dear, we seem to have come on the wrong day! I’m sorry about that!”
“Pa is a bit vague at times – a bit Push on the Pull door of the Gifted Institute if you know what I mean” she said

“Don’t worry”, I said “Come in and meet Sprite”
“I have a Pterodactyl poster for her” said the Palaeontologist.

In the P Party Garden

Here we see the Playground, Pool, Pogo stick and the REAL Pony for Pony rides. The Policemen are Patrolling the Perimeters on Push bikes and Pennyfarthings and the Parachutist, Petra Polona the Polish Pole Vaulter and Aviatrix Amelia Earhart are arriving.
PC PC PC was not going to let Amelia Earthart enter until Sprite said she wanted her to be Present and introduced her as Pamela Pearhart Plane Pilot.


I was looking at some of my photos and Sprite’s Memory Elephant produced some of the pictorial memories recorded in the role of Photographer Pachyderm at Sprite’s P Party. The giraffe (a friend of Starjump Starfish) helped to unravel the pictures from the PhotoCollage ball and passed them up to the Twitter Birds who attached them to a display banner.
