Ellsworth's and Winchester's Literary Society


The days are getting cooler and shorter. It's a good time to start our literary group. We'll read good books and talk about them. I can't wait.

You said I could name our club, remember? I want it to have an animal island name and a food name, just like that book you read.

The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society. That was such a great book!

Yeah, that one. Let's cook up something for the food name. Last one to the stove is a rotten egg!

Let's do this in order. Come up with the "animal island" name first. The island has to be in Virginia. That's the rule.

Sometimes, Ellsworth, you are so stuffy. All right. I'll look for an island in Virginia. Here's one--"Hogg Island."

Sounds like someplace you ought to live. You can do better than that.

Anything to get to the food part . . . spin the globe. Whee!

Winchester, this globe doesn't spin. And watch stepping all over The Writer's old National Geographic magazines. You know how persnickety she is.

I found it! "Fishbone Island!" See? This teeny little speck near Tangier Island?

That's a great name!

Now let's get to the cooking part. What do you think about Tuna Kibble Truffle Peel Pie?

I think you need to lower your sights.
