It was an early start today. Well before sunrise did the farm animals wake me, so I sat a while watching and listening to the maids downstairs. They are always so busy!
Ah! It looks like Mistress Martha is going to pick some fresh apples. Mmm, I am hungry and I do love apples. Do you think she would notice if I pinched one?
She noticed. She birched me for each one I took. Maybe I should ask next time?
Fare thee well.
