Speedy Weedy and Mosey Dawdle's last Day on the Blackboard

Elizabeth Erb of Azalia Mountain School in Asheville, North Carolina has been reading the seven 'saws' from The Seven Saws of Speedy Weedy and Mosey Dawdle to her second grade children.

She writes: "Today is the last day for the chalkboard drawing. Such sadness in the room. The children gathered round to say farewell to all of the characters. They named the lizard from the first race: Wizard Lizard!"

Goodbye Speedy Weedy Hare, Mosey Dawdle Tortoise, Roger Dodger Racoon, Hungry Coyote, Wizard Lizard and everyone else ... not forgetting the famous "yonder tree" ... nor the little pig standing on the cliff's edge!


Check out my puppetry page for shots of various shows. Here is a shot from an event at Live Oak Waldorf School in Auburn, California. As you can see, Pine Cone and Pepper Pot came disguised as two grown-up human beings pretending to be Pine Cone and Pepper Pot (how devious is that!!!). One of them even went so far as pretending to be a woman! They almost had us fooled but you can tell by their cheeky looks that they are really gnomes.
