Welcome WEBTV

kitty washing Welcome to the World of Soose. What's a "soose"? A "soose" is me. I'm Soose and this is my world.

"Dear Readers:
Soose here! I bet you thought that I had been exiled from Sooseland. Well, you couldn't be farther from the truth. As you will see, this column isn't really a column. It is an 'experiment', you might say. The columns WILL continue, but I thought you would like a change. Enjoy!
By the way, the images DO take a few minutes to load. Please be patient."

"A SIMPLE STORY"

OR

"SMILE! YOU'RE ON 'CANDID CAMERA'!"

store

Once upon a time, there was a quaint little place in the middle of nowhere.
This quaint little place was a quiet little place where no one ever thought bad
things, or did bad things. Everyone was VERY happy there.

Debbie

See? Debbie is happy.....

Mary

Mary is happy.....

Julia

Julia is happy.....

Junior

Junior is happy, too....
Everybody is happy.....

Carrla

Well...almost everybody.....
You see, Carrla just knows that something bad will happen
and then no one will be that happy for awhile.
(There's ALWAYS one in EVERY crowd.)
And just how does she know these things?
Well....

Carrla

Carrla has these dreams where a shopping cart chases
her into an ice cream freezer, then blocks the doorway
so that she can't get out.
Everytime she has one of these dreams, something
bad happens. And guess what? YEP!
She has had one of those dreams again.
Scarey, huh?
But, what bad thing could possibly happen?
This is a HAPPY place!

Melanie and Wendy

I mean, look at Melanie and Wendy. Both of them
are happy. See?

Gemma

So is Gemma.

Kathleen

Kathleen runs by and says, "I'm happy, too!"
Yes, Kathleen, we know.

Scott

Scott is so happy, he's blurred and blushing!
Poor Scott!

Frank and Debbie

Meanwhile, Debbie has discovered that something is
just not right. Two whole shelves of merchandise
have disappeared! She points this out to Frank, and
begins making a list of the missing merchandise using
an empty shelf as a desk.

Frank and Debbie

Debbie: "I just don't understand it. The stuff was here just
a minute ago!"
Frank, pointing at himself: "Well, don't look at ME. I thought my
entrance into this story would never come!"
Poor Frank!

Debbie and Scott

Debbie informs Scott of the missing merchandise.
Scott: "Well, don't tell anyone else. Keep it a secret.
We wanna get to the bottom of this mystery without
advertising it."

Nabil

Nabil reads in the newspaper: "'MERCHANDISE MYSTERIOUSLY MOVED,
details on page 6.' WOW! That is news! Two whole shelves, too! Hmmmm..."
(So much for secrecy....)

Julia

Julia has called the police in between the numerous
inquiring phone calls from the public.

Joe

In steps Joe from the police, who is in disguise
as a Miami tourist who is lost. After being told
of the two empty shelves, Joe makes a rather
startling statement: "That's not all that's missing.
Have you checked your warehouse lately?"

Joe

Sure enough, the merchandise in the warehouse
has also disappeared! Joe is very proud of himself
for making this discovery.

Carrla

Carrla: "I told ya something bad was gonna happen!"
Yes, Carrla, we know you did.

Joe

Joe has a plan.....
Joe: "I have a plan. I need an undercover volunteer.
Kathleen, you're it."

Kathleen

Kathleen: "Oh goodie! See? I can hide behind stuff
and peek around!"
(Ahem...)

Kathleen

As Kathleen tip-toes around looking for clues, a lady
needs her assistance.
Lady: "Are you sure these big Cadbury bars are fresh?"
Kathleen: "Yes ma'am, I believe they are."
Lady: "OH! By the way, I wanted some triple chocolate
nougat filled Brazilnuts but you don't seem to have any.
In fact, the merchandise on this entire shelf is missing!
When do you expect some in?"
Kathleen: "The shelf is EMPTY??? Get outta the way
and let me investigate this!"
Lady: "WELL! I NEVER!"
Kathleen sees that indeed the shelf is empty. She realizes
that some spying is needed.

Kathleen

Kathleen begins "Operation Peek-A-Boo". She pretends
to be straightening a shelf. But she is really watching for
any suspicious behavior in either human or object. There is
a microphone hidden in the feather duster.
She reports to Joe through it: "Hi, Joe. Guess who? Hehehehe...."
Joe: "Kathleen, what progress have you made?"
Kathleen: "How did you know it was me?"
Joe: "Just a wild guess."
Kathleen: "Well, I don't think anyone is on to me yet. And so far,
all the remaining merchandise is still here, except for this shelf.
OOOPS! I guess I missed THIS shelf. Hehehehe..."
Joe: "Uh,...well do the best you can."
Kathleen: "Okay Joe."
Suddenly, Kathleen hears a strange noise. She peeks around
the corner....

Gemma

.....and catches GEMMA in the act of cleaning off another shelf!
Gemma: "Oooops! I'm found out...."
I don't think Gemma is happy at all.

Frank

Frank: "I knew it was Gemma all along."
Debbie in the background: "Yeah...right, Frank."

Debbie

As Gemma is taken away, we can hear Debbie exclaim:
"HEY! Close the door! You born in a barn or something???"

Debbie

It is now time to celebrate Kathleen solving the mystery.
Debbie: "Bottoms up!"

Frank

Frank waves good-bye to Gemma.....

Mary

Mary waves good-bye to Gemma....

Kathleen

And Kathleen waves good-bye to Gemma.
Kathleen: "Notice how full the shelves are NOW?"

Kathleen

Kathleen: "I'm SO proud of myself. But I have to go to
the restroom now."
Yes Kathleen, you deserve the "break".
Happiness has been restored to this quaint little quiet
place.

Traci and Nabil

See? Tracy and Nabil are happy.
Tracy: "The next time someone tries to muscle in,
I'll give 'em what for."
Nabil: "Cool it, Tracy. You're embarrassing me, and this
whole thing has disrupted my nap time."

Melanie and Sue

Melanie and Sue are happy.

Grace

Grace is happy.

Joe and Carrla

Joe and Carrla are happy.
Joe: "This is sure to mean a promotion for me..."
Carrla: "You sure you're a cop?"

store

Yes, everything is back to normal at the
quaint little place in the middle of nowhere.....

But wait.......

Something unusual is lurking off in the distance.....
OH NO! It's too terrible....

Melanie

What possibly could happen to a nice face like this?

Melanie

The dreaded "Beaver Syndrome"!!!
I hope no one else in this happy place catches it!

THE END


XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

I would like to thank Gemma, Frank, Debbie, Carrla, Joe, Scott, Kathleen, Mary, Julia, Melanie, Nabil, Wendy, Junior, Grace, and Tracy for all being good sports and for having a terrific sense of humor. Believe me, it is GREATLY appreciated. If I have forgotten anyone, please forgive me--sooses have rotten memories.

kitty washingI would not be a "soose" if I did not recognize the wonderful talents that IACTA possesses. Thanks to them, that great looking "Soose Banner" that you can see at the top of this page is possible (and the "Soose Award", too!). Thank you IACTA for all your time and effort that you put into BOTH items. And thank you to YOU Laura of IACTA for letting your team display their talents for a "soose" ("sooses" are graphically impaired individuals)! No, I don't actually look like that little animated character!
