Tallyho!

Yep, it’s us. We’re still here. Because we haven’t done a “letter” post lately, it seemed like the perfect TIME to do “T!” (TLC agreed—TOTALLY.) And it's Thursday!

Fasten your seatbelts, we’re about to TAKEOFF:

DO BE: Trusting; THOUGHTFUL; TACTFUL; THANKFUL; Tranquil; TANTALIZING; Terrific; a Trendsetter; TRIUMPHANT; Tactical; TENTATIVE (that’s not always a bad thing, you know); TIDY and Thrifty!

DON’T BE: TYPICAL; a Thug; Tacky; TERRIBLE (especially to yourself); a Tattletale (no one likes that!); TWERPY (is that a 60s kind o’ word?); Tardy (for the party!); TAUDRY; TIMID; Thickheaded; TIPSY (unless you have a designated driver) or in a Tizzy; Tedious; THREATENING; TWO-FACED; a TOOT; or a Two-Timer. Or TYRANNIC.

Don’t have: A TEMPER.

While you’re wearing your TIARA: TWIRL! Twinkle! Wear TAFFETA! Watch the TELLY! Play Tiddlywinks and jump on a TRAMPOLINE! Twiddle and TWIST (but don’t shout!) Pick TULIPS and paint your TOENAILS Teal! Have a Tete-a-Tete with someone from TEXAS (maybe a TYCOON? Or us? We’re not TYCOONS. Just being real.)!

Plan a trip to: Thailand; TIBET; Tahiti (our first choice!); TUNISIA; Tanzania; Topeka; TALLAHASSEE; Turkey; TONGA; TOBAGO; or Tasmania (look out for that devil!). Go by TRAIN to some TOWN that has no TRAFFIC and ride a TROLLEY.

Use a Tablespoon of TARAGON, Thyme and Tabasco in your TACOS and Tamales. Use wheat TORTILLAS (healthier, of course!)! TASTE Tapioca; TOMATOES (extremely good for you!); Taffy; and TAGALONGS (Girl Scouts Everywhere will love you!).

Watch out for: TYPHOONS; Tornadoes; TERMITES; TOXIC Takeovers; TUMBLES; Turtles (ELC’s word for slow peeps); TELETHONS; Tigers (that are loose); TARANTULAS (Who cares if they can’t really hurt you—seriously? They are TREMENDOUSLY TROUBLING!); Ticklers (unless you don’t mind being Tampered with); TANTRUMS (of which Little Leighton shall have none); Tiny THESPIANS (they can make you TIRED); and THIRSTY, Tequila-drinkin’ THIEVES (work with us, okay?)!

Don’t read TABLOIDS. Do do TAICHI. Don’t get in a TAILSPIN. Buy a new TEAPOT. Learn new TECHNOLOGY. Notice TEXTURE. Enjoy a THUNDERSTORM. Be TOGETHER Tonight with Thous Truly TREASURED darlin’ (sorry—brain can’t pull a “t” word for that…getting TIRED!).

Learn how to play a: Trombone; TUBA; Tambourine; TRIANGLE (remember those from kindergarten?); or TRUMPET. You might get a TROPHY!

TOMORROW…Don’t suck your THUMB. THRIVE. Think! TACKLE Tough TRANSITIONS. Wear TURQUOISE or TOPAZ. Don’t listen to Trashy TRIVIA. Be a TRAILBLAZER. Read about a THOROUGHBRED. Give a TISSUE to someone in TEARS (you get the broader meaning, right?). Start a TRADITION. Avoid TRAGEDY. Suck in your TUMMY. Read all one Trillion TWILIGHT books (Tee hee hee!).

That’s That! TOUCHE! Tada!

And Ta-Ta. . . for now. . .

What would we do without you, Ms. Autumn, to encourage us?

We don't know. We just don't know.

THANK YOU!!!
ELC and TLC (and Little Leighton!)
