Ahaaa, I am the Grey Ghost, the mystery wrapped in the enigma known as The Scarlet Manuka.... The World Will Never Know Who I Am!!! I may also be just a tiny bit of a wiseacre but you already knew that ;) ... but back to the riddle...

Because that's the only kind of trip the squares in the Establishment would let it take, man!

She likes to eat bugs and I cleaned cages so there were no bugs to eat!

She hated the Gregorian calendar and hoped they were using the lunar calendar.

Because I finally found a vendor to sell me tiny sombreros. I doubt I could finish all by Halloween considering my schedule this week. But thanks!

(Oh yeah, she's throwing in some mustaches and lips because I sent my gang's pic.)

Well when I was your age, and a grown-up said the chicken had crossed the road, I didn’t ask why, the very fact that a grown-up had said so was good enough for me!
