AUTHOR DAVIS AUJOURD'HUI GIVES INTERVIEW



I recently had another wonderful opportunity to talk about my hilarious series. It was a joy to talk about my wayward nun who loves her bourbon and her Marlboros. Along with the Reverend Mother, a reformed prostitute, and the convent's chef, a gay cowboy who is a self-described sex maniac, I had the chance to talk about my other deliciously dysfunctional characters of Bucksnort, Wisconsin.

While the interview focused on my newest book in the series, "Babes in Bucksnort", I was able to talk about my motivation behind developing the series. Years ago, I entertained a colleague by leaving voice mails doing impressions of my delightful characters. She loved it and would burst out into cascades of laughter. Once I retired, I thought that I could write a book. That led to "The Misadventures of Sister Mary Olga Fortitude" which was soon followed by Babes and a host of other books waiting to be published.

Listeners of the interview will find out how the books will entertain them if they have an open mind. While the books speak to a few specific audiences, it has been highly reviewed by a cross section of diverse readers who have said they couldn't wait for more. Fortunately, they won't have to wait long for the other books to be published.

I spoke of a few zany scenarios from my book. There's the story of Baby Burpee and Junior Rathbone who get married by reenacting their first meeting on the shores of the mighty Mississippi. There, in nothing but their birthday suits, they part the waters of the great river with their mammoth forms. This almost catapults the preacher off the swimming float where the ceremony is going to take place.

Then there's the story of little Fartley Dinkledorf who gets a thrashing from Lula Mae Bunsaplenty when the little pooper covers her shrubbery in a most foul manner. The little boy couldn't help it because a mischievous classmate had given him a chocolate bar that was a laxative.

The African American woman with an attitude was further unamused when her paramour gave her an ultimatum to apologize to the boy. Having first incurred a indignant caning by Fartley's great grandfather, she takes off in a huff. The question remains as to whether she will ever return to Dinkledorf Drive in Bucksnort.

I was able to talk about the nuggets of spiritual wisdom in the book, dispensed by Sister Mary Olga in her Advanced Holiness classes. While Sister Mary Olga doesn't always agree with the pope, she preaches and practices the Golden Rule – to do unto others as you would like them to do unto yourselves.

I was further able to tell how the readers might get to learn about themselves through the antics and very human aspects of my characters. It takes one to know one. Just beware of what you might find out about yourselves. Don't worry, it will help you embrace your humanity once you realize that you are only human too.

I was especially grateful to be able to talk about the opportunities for recovery for alcoholics and sex addicts who might be part of the listening audience. As is the case with my characters, many people suffer from these addictions and help is available. The bottom line is that the books will help people to look at themselves and life without taking themselves too seriously. Take your own delightful joy ride to Bucksnort and see for yourselves. You won't regret a side-splitting moment.

LULA MAE BUNSAPLENTY LEAVES WITH A DOSE OF ATTITUDE

Lula Mae Bunsaplenty is the much younger paramour of the elderly and suave Jules Jesslike Pappas. She is queen of the castle. She sashays around in a caftan, cinched up at her bountiful bosom and has used her feminine wiles to wrap Jules around her finger. Unfortunately for Lula Mae, that isn't working any more. Jules has realized that she is a manipulative gal who is only in life for herself.

Little did Lula Mae know she would be leaving Dinkledorf Drive on the day she received a mooning from little Fartley Dinkledorf. A classmate of Fartley's had played a trick on the incessantly flatulent child that cured his compulsive and most odorous behavior. Muchmore Mayhem gave Fartley a chocolate bar that turned out to be a laxative.

Fartley rushed toward home as nature called in a most insistent manner. Unfortunately, he couldn't make it that far. He ended up making a beeline around the back of Jules' home. There, he proceeded to liberally coat the shrubs just as Lula Mae was looking out her window to greet the new day.

Lula Mae wasn't amused. She hightailed it to the kitchen where she grabbed a rubber spatula. Then she pounded the earth to wallop Fartley's already abused fanny before he had a chance to pull up his pants.

Upon arriving home in a cascade of tears, Fartley told his sad tale to his parents. His normally timid father, Dinky Dinkledorf, decided to go on a rampage himself. With all of his one hundred thirty-five pounds, he was prepared to do battle with Lula Mae who was twice his size. Unfortunately for Dinky, he was no match for the likes of Lula Mae.

“Come out here, you big cow!” squeaked Dinky. “You're not going to get away with beating my boy!”

“Who y'all callin' a cow, you dinky, liddle man” she bellowed back. “Ah've a raht mahnd to paddle yo' scrawny ass too! Id's bad enuff dat yo' liddle waht trash chile shot Lula Mae da moon an mo'! Now y'all has da nuhv ta call me names! Ah'm goinna teach ya'll a lesson ya'll soons not goinna fo-git!”

That's just what Lula Mae did. What she didn't realize was that Dinky's one hundred-seven year-old grandfather, Poopsy Dinkledorf, was looking out the window at that very minute.
.
When Poopsy saw Dinky upon Lula Mae's broad lap, his paternal instincts kicked in. He decided he was going to kick ass, lady or not! For the first time in over fifteen years, that old man really moved. There wasn't a single teeter to his totter. He made tracks that nearly sizzled as he pushed his trusty cane across the pavement at a full trot. He was on a mission to save his grandson!

Lula Mae didn't see it coming. She was having too much fun dishing it out to Dinky. All of sudden, Lula Mae let out a bellow that was louder than Bessie the cow when she'd birthed her springtime calf. Poopsy had made his mark. He'd used that cane of his to give Lula Mae a thwack of her own right on her buns-aplenty.

Her normally mild-mannered man, Jules, insisted that she owed Fartley an apology. That's when she leaned forward with one of her hefty arms outstretched and her finger pointing out her displeasure. Then she started swaying with a menace as she piped up. “No one's goinna sass Lula Mae and Ah ain't givin' no apologies to NO ONE! If'n y'all ain't goinna stan' up fo' yo' womans, den Ah's clearin' out!”

Lula Mae let out a “harrumph.” Then she turned her buns-aplenty on her audience of spectators and she marched back into the house. You could hear her cursing all over the neighborhood from inside that bedroom.

Not two minutes later, she burst out through that front door carrying a large suitcase that wouldn't close since it was overflowing with clothes. She threw that suitcase into the back of her Cadillac, she plopped herself in the driver's seat, and she gave it the gas. Then she zoomed out of the driveway and she barreled down the street.

Take a journey to Bucksnort, Wisconsin, where the tales contained in "Babes in Bucksnort" will keep you in stitches of laughter from the beginning to the end. Just don't keep all the fun to yourselves. Consider entertaining your friends this Christmas with the hilarious books in the Sister Mary Olga series. There's nothing like giving the gift of joy and it will only return to you multiplied.

CREATIVE COOKING WITH AMANDA ANN ADULT


Bucksnort Wisconsin's major celebrity is a seasoned old gal named Amanda Ann Adult. She cooks with plenty of seasoning and she always does it with generous doses of vodka. She and Sister Mary Olga Fortitude are best buddies, given their mutual passion for heavenly and potable spirits.

Amanda Ann is the half-sister of Julius Jesslike Pappas. That's a story unto itself. For now, let's focus on Amanda Ann.

In her younger years, Amanda Ann was the mistress of Priscilla Bunhead's father, Boris. This created a lifetime grudge for Priscilla since she blamed Amanda Ann for her mother's death. Following her discovery of her husband's affair, Priscilla's mother wandered off the curb in a daze and was run over by the milk man. That's when Priscilla became a motherless child.

Boris Bunhead was the owner of Bucksnort's only radio station, WBUN. After starting his affair with Amanda Ann, he made a celebrity out of her. He gave Amanda Ann her own radio show which Amanda Ann dubbed, Cooking with Class.

Every day at 5PM, the local housewives and many of the gay men of Bucksnort would tune into her show for the recipe of the day. The show turned out to be a smash. One thing Amanda Ann knew how to do was to cook. She also quickly learned how to drink when Boris dumped her for Dolly Delite.

Amanda Ann got even with Dolly later, but that's another story too.

Amanda Ann became another lost soul who blamed her fate at becoming a spinster on other people and life circumstances. She became a drunk. Fortunately, for the readers of my series, her drunkenness was always spiced with plenty of humor. She also had another good drinking buddy beside Sister Mary Olga. That would be the parish priest, Father Cowberries.

Priscilla would always prepare the for the convent's annual Christmas pageant. One year in particular, things got rather out of hand. She always had a potent egg nog on hand which Father Cowberries and Sister Mary Olga enjoyed. It contained a little egg nog, some ice cream, and lots of bourbon, rum and brandy.

This particular year, Father Cowberries accidentally destroyed her dessert. After imbibing heavily on Amanda Ann's egg nog, he passed out and plunged head-first into her Yule log. When it came time to present the smashed dessert to the assembled crowd, Amanda Ann wheeled out her log, cursing all the way. She announced that Father Cowberries had already had his piece.

Take a side-splitting journey to Bucksnort where the unexpected is always to be expected. The characters are zany and the scenarios are outrageous. There's also lots of spice besides Amanda Ann's cooking. Thanks to the sexual antics of my characters, there's always a dose of dirt for Priscilla Bunhead to get her crooked nose hooked in. She dishes it out with as much panache as Amanda Ann dishes out her culinary delights.

Your travels to Bucksnort begin with "The Misadventures of Sister Mary Olga Fortitude" followed by "Babes in Bucksnort". The laughter doesn't stop there. There will be many more books in the series yet to come. Treat yourselves to lots of laughs this Christmas. My books are available through Amazon.com.

A DINLKELDORF ENCOUNTERS MAYHEM





Every once in awhile, we all encounter a form of mayhem in our lives on our ways to self-discovery. In the case of some of my characters in Bucksnort, Wisconsin, mayhem comes in different forms. First, there is the irascible Martha Mayhem. She is well-named since she is constantly looking for trouble. She is always at odds with her arch enemy, Priscilla Bunhead, the town snoop and gossip.

Priscilla wears her stringy hair in a tight little bun. Martha comes to especially hate that bun when Priscilla forms an organization called Bunheads Unite Now – BUN. She recruits vulnerable females who are looking for someone to do their thinking for them. Much to Martha's chagrin, this also includes some of her relatives. Martha later seeks revenge upon proud Prissy and beheads the bun of a shrieking Priscilla.

Mayhem is encountered in a different form when Diddles Dinkledorf and Mark Mayhem are young and horned-up teens. As they experiment with their sexualities, Mark learns that he enjoys Diddle's Dinkledorf where the sun don't shine. This becomes a life-long passion for the two later aging men who maintain that they are straight. It takes them nearly a lifetime to come to accept that they are gay.

Oh, it all starts out innocently enough. Their trysts take place in the abandoned outhouse of Sister Mary Olga's parents, Platitude and Fullove Fortitude. When the young Mary Olga catches them in the act, she acquires a secret knowledge that she later holds over Diddles' head in order to blackmail him.

Diddles works as a craftsman at the convent where Mary Olga subsequently becomes a nun. She has him fashion a custom-made crucifix that is hollow and contains a flip-top. Given her passion for having secret nips of Old Granddad bourbon, she now has a ready flask for her heavenly spirits.

The older Sister Mary Olga finally decides to blow Mark's cover, thinking she should do her duty to inform Mark's wife that she is married to a closet case. Marjorine Mayhem doesn't turn out to appreciate this knowledge. Seeking comfort, it ends up driving her into the arms of her sister-in-law, Martha. That's when Mayhem encounters Mayhem in a different form of the love that dares to speak its name. The two women discover that they too are gay once they indulge in a passionate kiss.

Life often mimics fiction and can even be stranger than it. Many of the characters in Bucksnort come to embrace their God-given sexualities as they learn to appreciate the diversity of life. Yes, life is indeed a journey full of differing self-discoveries.

You probably won't discover that you are gay unless you already possess those secret fantasies. Irregardless, you may come to embrace some of your own secret behaviors as you come to the understanding of those things within yourselves that need healing. My characters will help you make these discoveries in the most humorous ways.

Learn to accept all of yourselves as you make the journey to fuller self-discovery. Just try not to judge yourselves too harshly. The point is to not take yourselves too seriously. Just come to accept that you are human and that both you and life are good. In the meantime, laugh yourselves silly as you embark on your journeys to Bucksnort!

A CONVERSATION BETWEEN SISTER MARY OLGA & PRISCILLA BUNHEAD


Sister Mary Olga:

“Just wait one minute while I have a deliciously holy snort of bourbon and light up a Marlboro. Oh? What's that?... I'm on the radio!... Goodness Gravy! Forgive me, my dears. This is Sister Mary Olga Fortitude coming to you. Now! I've heard that some of you are interested in hearing about my misadventures. That's all well and good as long as you don't spread any malicious gossip. After all, there's nothing very holy about that!

Suffice it to say that life is happening in the sleepy little hamlet of Bucksnort, Wisconsin in just the same manner as everywhere else. It's just that most of you tend to keep your untidy little secrets to yourself. Ahem! Excuse me for just a moment while I have another refreshing drink of what I prefer to call heavenly spirits. Ah! That's much better!

Well! Thanks to a busybody named Priscilla Bunhead, nobody's business in the Snortlands of Wisconsin remains their own for very long. Priscilla is the president of an organization called BUN. That stands for Bunheads Unite Now. Why, she's recruited the most vulnerable female souls of Bucksnort who prefer to have someone else do their thinking for them. Just like Priscilla, her fellow bunheads all wear their hair in little buns at the back of their heads. This only serves to squeeze their little brains so tightly that they couldn't think for themselves even if they wanted to.”

(Suddenly there is a shrill voice in the background.)

Priscilla Bunhead:

“Just wait one damn moment, you sanctimonious sister! We bunheads happen to practice human decency, contrary to the likes of you and that former whore of your reverend mother, not to mention the perverts on Dinkledorf Drive. How would you like to live next to a half-Negro bastard like Jules Jesslike Pappas and his fat floozy, Lula Mae Bunsaplenty, while I have a couple of lesbos living on the other side of my unhappy home?

To make matters even worse, I think there's a homo or two on the block! Then there's that 105 year-old peeping Tom, Poopsy Dinkledorf, who lives across the street! The only comfort I have about this revolting situation is that I know they're all going straight to hell when they die. In the meantime, I'll get my satisfaction by doing everything in my power to make their lives as miserable as possible! Maybe that will convince them to get the hell out of Bucksnort!”

Sister Mary Olga:

“Ahem! (followed by a whisper to the audience) - Hang on folks while I just have another little snort to calm my nerves. - It seems to me that you could benefit from one of my classes in Advanced Holiness. After all, as the good book says, 'Judge not, lest ye be judged.'”

Priscilla Bunhead:

“I'll be damned if I'll ever set my foot on the grounds of a Catholic convent! I happen to be a good Baptist so don't think that you're going to preach to me! After all, since you're always siding with the perverts, you'll also be going straight to hell. I just hope the readers of your books don't get suckered in by your so-called lessons in holiness. As the saying goes, 'Beware of wolves in sheep's clothing!'”

Sister Mary Olga:

“Now, now, my dear! Just be careful when you cast a judgment. After all, we're all only looking into a mirror at ourselves whenever we do that.”

Priscilla Bunhead:

“Poppycock, Mary Olga! I'm just here to let your listeners know that, if they read your books, they'll probably go straight to hell too. Quite frankly, I don't give a damn! They'll only have themselves to blame. At least I've done them the favor of warning them.”

Sister Mary Olga:

“Ahem! I'm sure you think you're doing them a kindness. Perhaps it would be better if you let them judge that for themselves. After all, all of God's children deserve a chance to have a good laugh and, (as Sister Mary Olga lets go of a belly laugh) God forgive me, you've just done that for me. Bless you, my dear.”

Priscilla Bunhead:

“You'd better wake up and smell the coffee before it's too late! As for me, I'm getting the hell out of here because your homo cowboy chef is coming this way with a tray of cookies. If you know what's good for you, I wouldn't eat one of those. After all, you never know where his hands might have been!” (sound of running footsteps)

Sister Mary Olga:

“Sigh! Hi Randy!”

Randy Cowboy:

“Hey, Sister, who was that?”

Sister Mary Olga:

“Honey, you don't want to know! When I used to believe in them, I might have called her a demon. Instead I realize she's just a scared little girl. Now! Let's change to a gayer note and let me have one of those cookies! They look scrumptious!”

MEET THE DINKLEDORFS




Poopsy Dinkledorf is the patriarch of the Dinkledorf clan. He happens to be the second oldest man alive in the state of Wisconsin. He is also a mischievous soul who lives on a street bearing his name in the fictional town of Bucksnort.
Poopsy is the widower of Daisy Dinkledorf who used to club him over the head with a cast iron frying pan whenever he came home from a night of philandering. He'd had a penchant for the best little whorehouse on the prairie, located across the state line in Orangutan, Iowa. A young raven-haired beauty by the name of Carmen Burana had captivated him by her feminine wiles and her tricks of the trade.

By the time he'd become an old man, Carmen Burana had become the Reverend Mother at Have A Heart convent in Bucksnort. While Poopsy hadn't lost his interest in sex, he basically became a relatively harmless, dirty old man. Of course, he became a pest to his female neighbors when he would peer into their windows hoping to get a look at their breasts and any sexual activity that might be going on within the confines of their bedrooms.

Poopsy's only surviving son is Diddles Dinkledorf who bore a lifelong secret of shame over an ongoing affair with his childhood buddy, Mark Mayhem. As young boys, Mary Olga Fortitude caught Diddles diddling Mark in the outhouse located behind her family home. Even after they both had married, they carried on their clandestine activities.

By the time that Mary Olga became a nun, this gave her an advantage over Diddles who happened to work at the same convent in which she lived. She blackmailed Diddles into protecting her own secret vices – her penchant for bourbon and her Marlboros which she referred to as her prayer sticks.

One of the youngest Dinkledorfs is Diddles' grandson, Fartley. Fartley more than lives up to his name. Much to Sister Mary Olga's consternation, he is constantly interrupting her class in a most explosive manner. He takes a perverse pleasure in passing gas. You can find out how he was cured of this habit if you read my July 2010 blog entry entitled, “Fartley Dinkledorf's Fuming Fiasco.”
Come join the entire cast of deliciously-named, diverse and zany characters when you take a trip to Bucksnort, Wisconsin. Both of the available books are self-contained, though you may want to start at the beginning by reading The Misadventures of Sister Mary Olga Fortitude first. The beauty of ordering both books at the same time is that you'll receive free shipping and handling on www.Amazon.com.
Don't forget. Christmas is coming and now is the perfect time to begin your shopping. There is nothing better than sharing joy with a friend. Consider giving the gifts of laughter contained within the outrageously funny books in the Sister Mary Olga series.
~~If you are looking for a light funny satire, these two books are for you. Kick back and have a good laugh. We all need it!!!

Do You Just Follow or Do You Shine with Individuality?

Have you ever been in a room with a few friends or a part of a group that believed something that you didn’t agree with? You felt like the world was against you. It’s an uncomfortable and disheartening feeling. It was one of those pivotal moments in life where you either stood up for your opinion and be heard, even if it means that you disagree with the majority, or just go along with the crowd.

In my second installment of the Sister Mary Olga series, "Babes in Bucksnort", there is an underground movement a foot. Reverend Billy-Bob Blunthead and his wife Pinky Poo are about to garner sympathy from the masses at his parish. They are a team that will definitely cause a hilarious theatrical stir for the entire town that you don’t want to miss. Their message is simple… Rid the town of Bucksnort of the homosexual menace that is upon them and no one is safe! Watch your neighbors carefully!

Sister Mary Olga has been witness to the underlying tension of the community. She offers this wisdom to her Advance Holiness class that she would like to share with you:

“I would caution you to take care with your personal testimonies of grace. Not everyone has the same beliefs. We must treat every person with respect even though we may think that we know a better way. All religious beliefs can be valid. God only knows that I’ve had some challenges with regard to that within my own Christian faith. Some of our so-called Christians have forgotten the message of love and forgiveness that Jesus has brought upon us. Perhaps that would be a good place to start.”

Sister Mary Olga always seems to bring problems and conflicts into perspective by focusing on the goodness behind the intentions of all involved. Even though there is seriousness about the disagreement between the townspeople, there is also honesty and humor that stays true to each individual of Bucksnort.

What happens with Sister Mary Olga and the cast of wily, fun loving individuals of Bucksnort may surprise you. Start reading the side splitting, hilarious saga today to find out what happens with your favorite characters.

Sequel to "The Sister of Mary Olga Fortitude" is published and That Would Be "Babes in Bucksnort"


Fans of "The Misadventures of Sister Mary Olga Fortitude" have said, “We couldn't put it down! When it was all over, we wanted more. We can't wait for the next book in the series!”

Fortunately, you won't have to wait long. The sequel to Misadventures is out. Whether or not you've read Misadventures, you'll be able to dive into the deliciously zany new tales without missing a beat.. Of course, you'll undoubtedly want to back up and read the first book, so that you can find out what outrageous stories have come before. Let me tell you a little bit about the new book.

"Babes in Bucksnort" is the sequel to the highly praised "The Misadventures of Sister Mary Olga Fortitude". Once again the unconventional bourbon-swilling, chain-smoking nun will spin outrageously funny new tales about the residents of Bucksnort, Wisconsin while she tests the will of a reformed prostitute who just happens to be her Reverend Mother.

Unfortunately there is trouble brewing in the Snortlands. The nasty and notorious town busybody, Priscilla Bunhead, goes on a crusade to stamp out what she calls the gay menace. That's when she convinces her millionaire friend, Mildred Mayflower, to give away her fortune in order to bring the Reverend Billy-Bob Blunthead and his Born Again or Burn Forever Disciples for Jesus to town to do the job. It will be an uphill climb for them as the closet doors of many gay people in the Snortlands burst open.

Billy-Bob and his wife, Pinky Poo, will have another battle on their hands when Dimples Dufus, the heiress to the Mayflower fortune, arrives on the scene. They'll also have to reckon with a mysterious woman who channels an entity who challenges the hateful and hypocritical agenda of this spokesman for Jesus.

In between the laughs, Sister Mary Olga continues to dispense nuggets of spiritual wisdom during her classes in Beginner's and Advanced Holiness. Just don't take seats near the flatulent child named Fartley Dinkledorf or his lecherous one-hundred five year-old grandfather, Poopsy. The bottom line is that everyone is welcome in Sister Mary Olga's classes. Join the diverse cast of characters for a joy-ride that will tickle your funny bone until it aches.

Look for "Babes in Bucksnort" through Amazon.com. In the meantime, I am polishing up the next books in the series. Sister Mary Olga promises to be with you for one home run after another.

Opposites Attract for Outrageous Laughter


What makes you laugh? Who makes you laugh the hardest? What was the funniest episode in your life that you can remember? Do opposites really attract?

Laughter is one of those free and extremely contagious emotions that actually has so many mental and physical benefits. It can improve your mood, body, and life. It lifts the spirit within us and our projected outcome becomes more positive and clearer than ever before.

Have you ever noticed that some of the funniest movies, comedians, and situation comedies that make us laugh is when there is a contrast between the main characters?

The Odd Couple springs to mind, along with other splendid classics of Laurel & Hardy and Abbott & Costello. The modern day, popular movies have filled this wonderful niche with hilarious road and cop buddy movies.

Think about it for a minute. It has been said that “opposites attract” for relationships, but it also attracts us to laughter and a period of outrageous fun. We seem to seek out others that are different from us. It brings an interesting balance to any relationship. There’s nothing funnier than watching what two or more different characters are going to do when a silly situation bombards them. Laughs, giggles, and even a couple of quick snorts will soon emerge.

What happens with Babes in Bucksnort? This is a perfect example of what attracts people and situations together. You won’t soon forget this cast of town players that make even the simplest day-to-day activities sinfully silly.

There are plenty of Bucksnort “opposites” that attract all kinds of mischief and laughter with this zany second installment of The Misadventures of Sister Mary Olga Fortitude. Sister Mary Olga has her work cut out for her as she disperses wonderful nuggets of spiritual wisdom, while keeping the town “opposites” from bringing down Bucksnort into a mountain of silly shambles.

Author Davis Aujourd'hui makes a return visit our Podcast


Add caption

















For the second week in a row, the Writers in the Sky Podcast will welcome back a previous guest as Davis Aujourd’hui sits down with Sarah Moore.

Davis first joined the podcast to discuss the release of his book, The Misadventures of Sister Mary Olga Fortitude. He is back to talk about the next book in a series featuring Sister Mary, Babes in Bucksnort. In this latest “misadventure,” the town of Bucksnort is all worked up over some visitors who come to town to dole out their own sense of social justice and Sister Mary Olga Fortitude is right in the middle sharing her wisdom about tolerance and inclusion.

Mr. Aujourd’hui will be discussing how this new book extends on the themes of his first release and what we can expect next in the series. He also will share some of the new characters he introduces in this second installment, who have unforgettable names and outrageous behaviors just like the men and women we met in the first Sister Mary Olga book.

Title of Document: Book Review

Book Title: Babes in Bucksnort

Author: Davis Aujourd’hui

ISBN: 978-1-4327-4500-4

Publisher: OutskirtsPress.com

Genre and Target Market: fiction; humor; social commentary

Publication Date: 2010

Book Length in Pages: 202
Like the book that preceded it, The Misadventures of Sister Mary Olga Fortitude, Babes in Bucksnort follows the antics of the diverse residents who live in Bucksnort, Wisconsin as told by the hard-drinking, chain-smoking nun whose name graces the entire series. However, while the first book was intended to introduce the readers to the large cast of characters and establish Sister Mary’s belief in tolerance and unconditional love, Babes in Bucksnort now takes a more focused approach to the storyline and confronts the growing prejudice against homosexuality in the town.

Becoming increasingly concerned about the infiltration of gays and lesbians in Bucksnort, Priscilla Bunhead forms a group of like-minded citizens who are determined to chase the people who they believe to be perverts out of town. Their efforts are reinforced when Reverend Billy-Bob Blunthead brings his Born Again or Burn Forever Disciples for Jesus to Bucksnort for a large rally that is meant to galvanize the supposedly moral people to save their community. As readers will discover, Billy-Bob, Priscilla, and other dispensers of harsh judgment will face a stronger and more unified opposition than they ever expected.

In this book, Aujourd’hui continues to do an excellent job of sharing social commentary through his memorable characters. Reverend Billy-Bob immediately conjures up images of television preachers who use their claim of Christianity to make a fortune from condemning others. Lilliliver Lipstick, another new character to the series and sidekick to Priscilla Bunhead, reminds me of the weak child who stands behind the playground bully and quietly watches while her fellow students are belittled and beaten. And, of course, Sister Mary Olga is still the necessary voice of kindness and reason in the middle of a wild atmosphere. I imagine in more than one instance, readers will recognize a character in Babes in Bucksnort as an exaggerated representation of someone they know in their own lives.

As I read both published installments in the Sister Mary Olga Fortitude series, I realized that I was enjoying the content for two distinct reasons. First, Aujourd’hui creates men, women, and children with unforgettable (and descriptive!) names and even more outrageous behavior. I appreciated the sharp humor that the author employed to this end and found great entertainment value in turning each page and discovering what these characters would do next. But, I also enjoyed the important messages of love and acceptance that Aujourd’hui emphasizes, particularly through the teachings of Sister Mary herself. Once in a while, we all need mirrors placed in front of us to help us examine and rethink how we treat one another, and Davis Aujourd’hui accomplishes this through his writing. Babes in Bucksnort is a book that will make you both think and laugh, which defines a great read for me. Now, I just need to wait for book number three so that I can discover who Sister Mary will bring to task next!!!!

Sister Mary Olga Takes a Much Needed Break

To keep everything running smoothly in a roller coaster life and gently reminding students in Advanced Holiness to remember their important morals and spiritual rules to live harmoniously by, it can be hard work even for a nun. Let’s face it, there are times that everyone needs a break, even Sister Mary Olga Fortitude.

It’s no secret that Sister Mary Olga has a couple of attention-grabbing vices of her own in The Misadventures of Sister Mary Olga Fortitude, but she will be the first to tell you that she’s not perfect. Life is an ongoing wonderful journey, and at times, a difficult venture to manage. Life is God’s universe and everything is perfectly ordered.

Sister Mary Olga doesn’t always see eye to eye with authority figures, with the exception of the Almighty of course. Her story may not seem that unusual or unbelievable; however, you haven’t heard it from a Bourbon swigging and Marlboro inhaling nun! You’ll find this story and entertaining narrator of genuine heart and side-splitting humor not that hard to love, but it will leave you thirsting for more. You’ll want to grab a quick refreshment for yourself, at least from Sister Mary Olga’s point of view.

The Misadventures of Sister Mary Olga Fortitude will take you on a journey from the Have A Heart Convent and around the small town of Bucksnort, Wisconsin. This story will grab your funny bone and not let go with the many stories and anecdotes of some very unforgettable characters. Mary Sister Olga will adamantly tell you that this story is a work of fiction. Or is it? You can be the judge of that.

It all started… sixty-five years ago on February 29th, on a leap year no less, little Mary Olga was born. Her desire to join the convent overcame her at barely the tender age of a girl. She followed her dream to become a nun.

Little did Sister Mary Olga know was that she would have her work cut out for her in Bucksnort. Follow her adventure, or rather misadventure, and meet all the colorful, zany characters for yourself.

As Sister Mary Olga would say, “Take a break” and read The Misadventures of Sister Mary Olga Fortitude.

Unforgettable Fun & Laughter in Bucksnort! Book Review of "Babes in Bucksnort"


*****(5 Stars) Unforgettable Fun & Laughter in Bucksnort!, July 15, 2010


By Jennifer Chase "Author of Dead Game & Compulsion" (San Jose, CA)

This review is from: Babes in Bucksnort: Sister Mary Olga Fortitude Book 2 (Paperback)

You won't be disappointed with Babes in Bucksnort because all of the outrageous, fun-loving characters are back in book #2 at the steady direction of loveable, chain-smoking, bourbon drinking Sister Mary Olga. She has taught readers, along with her town of parishioners of course, that sometimes it's important to take a good look at ourselves in order to make a positive change.


There seems to be conflict brewing in Bucksnort due to the range of truly unforgettable characters and their diverse activities. This time, Priscilla Bunhead along with her group of town nosey busybodies with the help from Reverend Billy-Bob Blunthead are determined to run out of town who they feel are perverts and undesirables. Following, is outrageous behavior and fun filled chapters that will keep you turning the pages to find out what happens next.


Aujourdi'hui has managed to create a satire series that will definitely give you mountains of smiles and giggles, but he has also masterfully woven important teachings of kindness, forgiveness, and true acceptance. The characters are vivid and it's highly unlikely you'll forget their names any time soon. There's a delicate balance of satire and reality that I feel that Babes in Bucksnort has accomplished perfectly.


If you want a fast weekend or afternoon read that's guaranteed to make you laugh, I recommend Babes in Bucksnort. I look forward to the next installment to see what Sister Mary Olga has in store for her and the town of Bucksnort.

What Makes You Happy?


Having lunch with good friends? Taking a nice long walk on the beach at sunset? Or, helping others who are less fortunate than you?


In my new book "Babes in Bucksnort", Sister Mary Olga has some wisdom into happiness and the best life you can possibly enjoy that I’d like to share with you.

“Now! I’m here today to tell you that it’s time to wake up and repent. This is the season of Jesus’s resurrection. Now, as always, he is here among us to lead us all to a better life. All it takes is to make a change in your attitude. Then you shall find yourself back on the High Way to God.”

How many times have you asked yourself, what makes me happy?

It’s the little things in life that seem to hold the most importance and happiness to us. It can be just a time that you went for a nature walk and you noticed the earth’s beauty for the first time, watched a baby take their first steps, or laughed until you cried with an old friend.

Take the time to enjoy life, the little joys and laughter, and change your perspective on the negative things that seem to bombard us everyday.

Sister Mary Olga says, “Perhaps you’d rather listen to some of my stories about the babes in Bucksnort and learn from their successes or their mistakes. Now! Wouldn’t it be easier than taking the elevator down that deep, dark shaft to a place of despair? All it takes is to be true to yourselves. Then God shall reveal all to you. Keep the focus on yourself and let the rest of the world go its own way.”

Remember, when you sit back and laugh, don’t forget to dip your toe in the water. You never know what wonderful things will transpire from that simple gesture.

Check out Babes in Bucksnort to find out the new adventures in the town of Bucksnort and what other wisdoms that Sister Mary Olga has to share with you along the way.

Dancing to a Different Beat!


Are there true benefits of being an individual and not wanting to be just like everyone else?

The simple and most straightforward answer is to embrace all of the wonderful differences and diversities that surround you with kindness, understanding, and love. Just be yourself.
“Two things are bad for the heart -- running up stairs and running down people.”
Bernard M. Baruch

“A weed is but an unloved flower.”
Ella Wheeler Wilcox
It has been said that an emotionally healthy person feels as if they add a certain amount of value to their environment. The benefit is that other people will perceive them as being more valuable as well. Uniqueness and independence seem to go hand in hand.

In my two satire novels, The Misadventures of Sister Mary Olga Fortitude and Babes in Bucksnort, my characters are definitely individuals. They offer insight into our world today along with well-placed laughs and chuckles for an afternoon of fun entertainment.

Confidence is essential and helps you to stand out, but it’s more important to have a sense of humility and willingness to learn from yourself as well as others. Sister Mary Olga would be the first to tell you to focus on the strengths, not weaknesses of others. She would want you to increase your awareness and learn as much as you can about all the diversity and wonderful people around you.

With the positive aspect of confidence, there must a delicate balance against arrogance, jealously, and the “I” ness that it can transpire. Have the confidence to do what you want to do, but not at the price of others.

I can hear Sister Mary Olga telling you not to always go with the flow, but rather do something different. Dancing to a different beat can have many amazing gifts that will catch on to everyone one around you.

“Let us always meet each other with smile, for the smile is the beginning of love.”
Mother Teresa

“Kindness is the golden chain by which society is bound together.”

Hilarious with an oddball cast of characters - Recent Book Review of "Babes in Bucksnort"


***** ( Five Star) Reviewd By" C. J. Good, Author ""CONTENTMENT" - &... (Chicago, Illinois)


This review is for: "Babes in Bucksnort:" Sister Mary Olga Fortitude Book 2 (Paperback)
Book: "Babes in Bucksnort"
Sister Mary Olga Fortitude Book 2.
Author: Davis Aujourd'hui.

When I saw the cover art, I suspected this would be a compelling read. I took the afternoon off, settled onto my cozy couch and laughed my head off for three solid hours. A resistant group of conservative citizens, led by Priscilla Bunhead, are determined to purge the town of the undesirable (in this case, gays and lesbians). They attract the attention of an outrageous preacher, Reverend Billy-Bob Blunthead and his followers, who are on a mission to save the town from destructive influences.

I savored every page of this book, from the comical to the spiritually wise, to the lessons of compassion, kindness and love, to the tenderly poignant. It is not terribly often that I stumble upon a book that manages to convey in a truly entertaining manner, what it is like to live in small-town America, when newcomers or outsiders trigger a change in traditional values.

I felt immediate rapport with this wonderfully wacky collection of eccentric characters: Sister Mary Olga Fortitude, Fartley and Dewdrop Dinkledorf, Ralphy Mayhem, Lilliliver Lipstick, and Father Cowberries. Not to mention Priscilla Bunhead and Reverend Billy-Bob Blunthead. The oddball names alone make me giggle.

Author Davis Aujourd'hui's book was simply a pleasure to stumble upon. From the cover page to the very end, Aujourd'hui pulls the reader in and never lets go. A masterful comedian, his insight into human behavior deepens our knowledge of ourselves, even as we heartily laugh out loud.

I can not believe that any person over the age of 25 has not experienced the emotions of the colourful characters that inhabit the book. The book is well written, incredibly funny, and will probably take off like a thoroughbred at the Kentucky Derby. Makes a fabulous gift. Reviewed by: C.J.

Book Review: The Misadventures Of Sister Mary Olga Fortitude by - Author Davis Aujourd’hui



"The Misadventures Of Sister Mary Olga Fortitude" By Author Davis Aujourd'Hui
Posted on July 10th, 2010
by Simon Barrett in Book Reviews
ReviewsRead 227 times.


I read many books, they cover many genres, sometimes it is fun to dip into something truly irreverent. "The Misadventures Of Sister Mary Olga Fortitude" is one such book. I will share a little tid bit with you, Davis Aujourd’hui is a pen mane. I for one cannot understand the need for this

I have been told that The Vatican maintains one of the largest libraries of books in the world, I think the chances of them acquiring this particular tome is about the same as me winning the Powerball Lottery without buying a ticket. In Dan Brown’s blockbuster The Da Vinci code we get to meet the mad killer monk Silas. If there are any Silas’s around they probably have Davis Aujourd’hui on their hit list.

The main character in the book is Sister Mary Olga Fortitude, about the only vow she has not broken is that of celibacy, and who knows, even that might change. The good sister resides at the Have A Heart Convent in that well known town of  Bucksnort, Wisconsin. I am pretty certain I have visited several Bucksnort’s in my time.

Sister Mary Olga’s problems began as a baby, being born on February 29th certainly disadvantaged her as a young child. Maybe it was the lack of birthday parties and presents that made her seek out the solace of life in a convent?

Sister Mary Olga has good intentions but also enjoys a nip of Old Granddaddy now and then, well most of the day, every day.

I asked Diddles if it would be possible for him to create a custom crucifix for me. I advised him that it had to be an otherwise exact replica of the crucifixes created for the nuns. What I had in mind was a particularly hollow version of our suffering Lord. I asked him to create mine with a flip-top cross so that I could fill my crucifix with a little something to quench my ever-increasing thirst

A crucifix can only contain so much booze, Sister Mary Olga sought some help:

I spoke out loud to Jesus, “How will I get through the rest of the day with the tiny flask of spirits contained in your own cross of sorrow?

Salvation is found in keeping a bottle or two stashed in back of one of the toilets. This solution is one that I was introduced to on my first visit to a remote Albertan town in the early eighties. My traveling companion has insisted that we pick up some ‘travelers’, but when we checked into the motel I discovered that there was no in room fridge to keep them cool. “No Problem”, Jerry explained, “Every room has a cooler, you just have to know where to look”. With that said, he left my room, taking with him the garbage bin, he returned a couple of minutes later with a supply of ice, he then removed the top of the cistern, flushed the toilet, inserted the beer and ice, and gave me one of those ‘Told you so looks’. “these puppies will still be cold for breakfast”, with that he left to no doubt do the same thing in his room.

While Sister Mary Olga did not bother with the ice, cubicle four, always had a good a stash of what she wanted.
If you are going to be taking a nip or two, what is better than a cigarette to go with it? Her choice is Marlborough Reds, not just one or two but the whole package!

Through Sister Mary Olga’s eyes we get so see the happenings in Bucksnort. Drunken Fathers, homosexual activities, and the other ugly secrets of the town. The Reverend Mother is a former prostitute and the convent’s chef is a gay cowboy.

Misadventures is irreverent, but the author means no harm, it is a fun read, and should be taken that way. I chuckled my way through the entire book. It is far to easy to take offence when humour is pointed at the church, don’t do that. This is a light hearted romp.

To order your copy of The Misadventures Of Sister Mary Olga Fortitude use this Amazon Link!

The author has a new book out, and that is next in my review pile. He has also agreed to an interview, I can’t wait!

SUCH GOOD SISTERS-IN-LAW


Once upon a time, in the sleepy little village of Bucksnort, Wisconsin, there lived a family named Mayhem. The elder sister, Martha, lived up to her last name. The other sisters were more demure. They will not be the subject of this article.

Martha also had a brother named Mark Mayhem who liked to diddle on the side with his good buddy, Diddles Dinkledorf. Ever since they had been teens, the two of them would furtively sneak away and Diddles would perform the the unmentionable upon Mark. Of course, neither of them admitted to being homosexuals. They were both married men.

Mark eventually married a shy, but lovely lady named Marjorine Butterworth. She had cornflower blue eyes and lovely brown hair that fell in soft curls around her face. They lived happily for many years until Marjorine felt Mark pulling away from her.

She had no idea what that was about and she was too timid to confront him. It wasn't until the day that Sister Mary Olga Fortitude spilled the beans about Mark's relationship with Diddles that Marjorine saw the light. Marjorine was not pleased!

She sought solace with her sister-in-law, Martha Mayhem – the most unlikely candidate to show anyone compassion. That's when an unexpected and beautiful thing happened. The two of them fell into each others' arms. Before they knew what they were doing, they kissed passionately. It was the beginning of a previously unknown fire within each of them that kindled itself on a cold winter's day.

Marjorine left her bewildered husband and moved in with Martha. Martha became a typical butch lesbian. She came to wear her graying hair in a bristle top brush cut. She always wore jeans along with a signature flannel shirt and she frequently sported alligator cowboy boots. The unlikely couple formed a relationship that was made in heaven.

Of course, that only stirred another fire in the neighborhood. Right next door to them lived the town prude, Priscilla Bunhead. As these latent lesbians began to bloom, Priscilla began her witch hunt against gay people. It would just become a matter of time before all of the closeted gay people of the Snortlands began to nudge their closet doors open as Priscilla waged a wicked campaign. This became a case when fear brought about the unexpected in these people. They found a courage within them they had never known they had possessed.

Read about this and the unfolding tales of the Babes in Bucksnort in the book bearing that title. In this and the preceding book, The Misadventures of Sister Mary Olga Fortitude, you will encounter zany characters and outrageous scenarios that will keep you laughing in stitches. Perhaps you will begin to find the humor within your own life. If you do, my purpose within these books will be fulfilled.
Enjoy your journey to Bucksnort.

Book Review of "Babes in Bucksnort" Reviewed By Sarah Moore

Title of Document: Book Review
Book Title: Babes in Bucksnort
Author: Davis Aujourd’hui
ISBN: 978-1-4327-4500-4
Publisher: OutskirtsPress.com
Genre and Target Market: fiction; humor; social commentary
Publication Date: 2010
Book Length in Pages: 202

Now that I have been involved in the book publishing and marketing industry for several years, I am enjoying the opportunity to review subsequent works from authors whose first offering I also had the chance to read when it was released. What a pleasure it is to watch the evolution of a writer’s vision and message. This is particularly true when the author is in the midst of creating a series of books with a common theme or that is focused on a particular set of personalities. In these instances, I get to spend more time with characters I have come to love and I get a more complete sense of what the author is intending to show the readers. Such is the case with the release of the second book in the "Sister Mary Olga Fortitude series" by Davis Aujourd’hui, "Babes in Bucksnort."

Like the book that preceded it, The "Misadventures of Sister Mary Olga Fortitude", "Babes in Bucksnort" follows the antics of the diverse residents who live in Bucksnort, Wisconsin as told by the hard-drinking, chain-smoking nun whose name graces the entire series. However, while the first book was intended to introduce the readers to the large cast of characters and establish Sister Mary’s belief in tolerance and unconditional love, "Babes in Bucksnort" now takes a more focused approach to the storyline and confronts the growing prejudice against homosexuality in the town.

Becoming increasingly concerned about the infiltration of gays and lesbians in Bucksnort, Priscilla Bunhead forms a group of like-minded citizens who are determined to chase the people who they believe to be perverts out of town. Their efforts are reinforced when Reverend Billy-Bob Blunthead brings his Born Again or Burn Forever Disciples for Jesus to Bucksnort for a large rally that is meant to galvanize the supposedly moral people to save their community. As readers will discover, Billy-Bob, Priscilla, and other dispensers of harsh judgment will face a stronger and more unified opposition than they ever expected.

In this book, Aujourd’hui continues to do an excellent job of sharing social commentary through his memorable characters. Reverend Billy-Bob immediately conjures up images of television preachers who use their claim of Christianity to make a fortune from condemning others. Lilliliver Lipstick, another new character to the series and sidekick to Priscilla Bunhead, reminds me of the weak child who stands behind the playground bully and quietly watches while her fellow students are belittled and beaten. And, of course, Sister Mary Olga is still the necessary voice of kindness and reason in the middle of a wild atmosphere. I imagine in more than one instance, readers will recognize a character in "Babes in Bucksnort" as an exaggerated representation of someone they know in their own lives.

As I read both published installments in the Sister Mary Olga Fortitude series, I realized that I was enjoying the content for two distinct reasons. First, Aujourd’hui creates men, women, and children with unforgettable (and descriptive!) names and even more outrageous behavior. I appreciated the sharp humor that the author employed to this end and found great entertainment value in turning each page and discovering what these characters would do next.

But, I also enjoyed the important messages of love and acceptance that Aujourd’hui emphasizes, particularly through the teachings of Sister Mary herself. Once in a while, we all need mirrors placed in front of us to help us examine and rethink how we treat one another, and Davis Aujourd’hui accomplishes this through his writing. "Babes in Bucksnort" is a book that will make you both think and laugh, which defines a great read for me. Now, I just need to wait for book number three so that I can discover who Sister Mary will bring to task next!

Randy Cowboy Meets Sex Meets Sex Maniacs Notorious


Randy Cowboy is the convent's gay chef. While he knows how to satisfy the good sisters' appetites, Randy's own appetite for sex is ravenous. He never seems to be able to get enough!

Randy made himself a good buddy with a sexy young man with brown hair, bewitching blue eyes, and a soccer player's build when he was cruising down by the old mill stream. Unfortunately for Randy, he didn't ask Bruce Friendly for his phone number.

Back in his bungalow, Randy plaintively sought more companionship on the Internet. As his good fortune would have it, he received a reply from someone whose screen name was Heaven's Gate. As his good fortune increased, it just happened to be Bruce Friendly. That was just the first surprise. Bruce had another one up his sleeve!

Randy excitedly asked Bruce if they could have sex again. That's when Bruce began to fumble. That's also when he was going to throw Randy a curve ball.

Bruce told Randy that he was a sex maniac. Randy didn't have any problem with that. He quickly replied that he was one too.

Bruce replied, “I don't think you understand what I mean. I'm a sex maniac in recovery and I shouldn't be on the internet. I attend a twelve step meeting called Sex Maniacs Notorious.”

“Gee,” replied Randy. “I probably could use that myself. I just seem to be totally out of control when it comes to sex.”

“Well,” said Bruce. “If you're serious, you could come to one of our meetings.”

The very next day, Randy went to the Big City to attend his first meeting. He was disappointed when he didn't see Bruce. That was okay. Randy took a seat next to another handsome guy. Maybe he would find himself a fringe benefit after the meeting.

That wasn't going to happen. When Randy flashed his sexiest smile at the handsome fellow, the other guy gave Randy the cold shoulder. Randy didn't like that. He wasn't used to that sort of thing. It appeared that these sex maniacs were serious about recovery. Now, the question for Randy was if he was going to take this sex maniacs thing seriously for himself.

By Lerrgroo Laura -SoFunny!!! ***** (5 Stars)

This was really cute and a very quick read. The lead character is Sister Mary Olga Fortitude who is a whiskey lover and a Marlboro smoking nun. The author has her narrating the book in a radio broadcast format, Sister Mary speaks directly to you. I especially love the photo on the back cover, the nun reminds me of John Belushi! The book is filled with colorful characters that will have you cracking up out loud. I was fortunate enough to win a copy of this and the author autographed it as well.

Outskirts Press Announces "Babes in Bucksnort", Author Davis Aujourd'Hui

The webpage at www.outskirtspress.com/babesinbucksnort was launched simultaneously with the book's publication.

About the Book (Excerpts & Info)

Here is the first sequel to the highly praised “The Misadventures of Sister Mary Olga Fortitude.” Once again the unconventional bourbon-swilling, chain-smoking nun will spin outrageously funny new tales about the residents of Bucksnort, Wisconsin while she tests the will of a reformed prostitute who just happens to be her Reverend Mother.

Unfortunately there’s trouble brewing in the Snortlands. The nasty and notorious town busybody, Priscilla Bunhead, goes on a crusade to stamp out what she calls the gay menace. That’s when she convinces her millionaire friend, Mildred Mayflower, to give away her fortune in order to bring the Reverend Billy-Bob Blunthead and his Born Again or Burn Forever Disciples for Jesus to town to do the job. It will be an uphill climb for them as the closet doors of many gay people in the Snortlands burst open. Billy-Bob and his wife, Pinky Poo, will have another battle on their hands when Dimples Dufus, the heiress to the Mayflower fortune, arrives on the scene to reclaim her fortune.

In between the laughs, Sister Mary Olga continues to dispense nuggets of spiritual wisdom during her classes in Beginner’s and Advanced Holiness. Just don’t take seats near the flatulent child named Fartley Dinkledorf or his lecherous one-hundred five year-old grandfather, Poopsy. The bottom line is that everyone is welcome in Sister Mary Olga’s classes. Join the diverse cast of characters for a joy ride that will tickle your funny bone until it aches.

PRISCILLA BUNHEAD MEETS LILLILIVER LIPSTICK


Priscilla was the town prude and busybody. Lately, she had found ripe pickings among some of her new neighbors. They were none other than the Snatchasnitches. The most vulnerable member of that family
was none other than Lilliliver Lipstick.

Priscilla presented the Snatchasnitches with one of her famous sour cream cakes on the very day after they had moved into the neighborhood. Prissy needed all of the support she could get for her causes. She was still trying to regain ground after Sister Samantha had infiltrated one of her BUN meetings. BUN just happens to stand for Bunheads Unite Now.

Ever the good student of poor fashion, Lilliliver Lipstick was a prime candidate for a strangled bun with which to control her stringy dishwater hair. She was also a good candidate to be controlled by someone who could do her thinking for her.

Prissy rang the Snatchasnitch’s doorbell and was greeted by Abner and Lilliliver’s little Senorita. At least our little Senorita had some good sense, though she was lacking in the manners department. There before her stood a scrawny, prune-faced lady who looked as if she’d been sucking on lemons.

Senorita took one look at this woman who had about as much hair as a church mouse. Then she exclaimed, “You’re the ugliest old lady I’ve ever seen!”

Prissy nearly shoved her sour cream cake right into little Senorita’s smug face until she remembered that she was on a mission. That’s when Lilliliver Lipstick quickly appeared and said to Senorita, “Now, now, sweetie, that’s not a very nice thing to say to an old lady.”

Priscilla was still on the fence about where her cake should end up. She chose the higher road and she presented it to Lilliliver Lipstick as she said, “Welcome to Dinkledorf Drive! I wanted to be the first one to roll out the welcome mat to you. May I come in for a moment?”

Lilliliver gave Priscilla a smile that reminded Priscilla of some of the insecure girls in her former etiquette classes for young ladies. Then Lilliliver admitted Prissy to her own perfect and prissily-kept home before she offered Priscilla a perfectly-fluffed, aqua-colored arm chair.

Priscilla took in the surroundings and the chair with an approving smile. Aqua had always been her favorite color. Besides, having recently become a retired home economics teacher, she was always pleased to see a young woman who took her domestic chores seriously. Then she craftily led the conversation around to her latest campaign.

She lowered her high-strung voice into nearly a whisper when she said, “My dear, I think I should warn you about some of your new neighbors. Evil lurks in the neighborhood. Why, the house just two doors down from you is inhabited by a couple of lesbians! You must protect your little Senorita against their evil influences. You wouldn’t want her to turn out like that, now would you?”

Lilliliver shuddered at the thought as she feverishly squirmed in her own seat. Then she exclaimed, “Oh my heavens, no!”

Priscilla continued on. “I also think that you should know that we have a couple of Negroes on the block. Now, the old man, Jules Jesslike Pappas, is really a credit to his race, but he’s living in sin with a lazy, dark-skinned, good-for-nothing floozy named Lula Mae Bunsaplenty. I’d been so concerned for our neighborhood when she’d moved in. Thank goodness it hasn’t kept fine upstanding white folks like you from buying a home here!”

Lilliliver appeared disturbed. She hadn’t realized that there had been any Negroes in the neighborhood. That’s when she exclaimed, “They don’t have any boys, do they?”

“Oh no, my dear!” Prissy continued. “Jules and Lula Mae don’t have any children and I sincerely doubt that they ever will. Their relationship seems to be on the rocks. At least you won’t have to worry about your little girl being pursued by an oversexed black boy. Even so, we need to make sure that they don’t attract any other Negroes into our beautiful neighborhood!”

“Certainly not!” Lilliliver exclaimed. “I’ll be sure to warn Abner about the situation!”

Priscilla continued on as she said, “I’m afraid there’s one more neighbor on whom you’re going to have to keep an eye if you don’t want him keeping an eye on you. He’s really a pretty harmless old man named Poopsy Dinkledorf. Why, the man is over one hundred years-old, but he’s also a dirty old man and a Peeping Tom!”

Lilliliver quickly retorted, “Well, he’s not going to get a chance with me because I always keep my blinds closed!”

“That’s very wise, my dear,” replied a self-satisfied Priscilla. “Even so, I might suggest that you remain vigilant and peek out your blinds on a regular basis. You can always come running over to my house if you see anything that we should be concerned about.”

Lilliliver quickly went over to her window blinds where she parted them before she peered out in all directions. Priscilla smiled at her action. “Oh, Miss Bunhead,” Lilliliver whimpered. “I just can’t believe that we’re surrounded by perverts and Negroes! I can’t thank you enough for warning me! I feel so much more secure knowing that I’m going to have a good friend like you in order to help protect my little Senorita.”

“Well, there’s one other thing that you can do in order to help protect your little darling,” replied Priscilla who nearly spat out her last word upon remembering that perfectly wretched child. “I’ve formed a new organization called CUDDD. That stands for Citizens United for Decency on Dinkledorf Drive. We just happen to be having our first meeting tonight. I’m counting on you for your support.”

“Oh my, yes!” declared Priscilla’s newest hand puppet. “I’ll be sure to be there!”

“That’s a good girl,” purred Priscilla. “Now, it’s time for me to go!” With that said, she wormed her way out of her chair, took her leave, and she skittered across the street to her own lookout station.
