Miss Mistony Calls

Just Heard from Erik:

Hello Greg,
Madelaine has now finished more her pictures, so what happened next was Miss Mistony (Madelaine teacher and Good friend for me) come over and looks after Little Grappa, who is happy because Miss Mistony also bring pet Zuigi.
I drove fast in seed convertible to city where is my office in Sky Vine Mainstem. I should have try work out what is making bad vibration on Sky Vine, but I was all time thinking about Miss Mistony, she look  today very nice.

Sky Vine

After not hearing from Erik and the Butternut Ponka's for a few days I received the following email:

Hello Greg, sorry have not speak for time but strange things have happening on Pumpkin Planet. I think my english is not pleasantly excellent, so Madelaine is done pictures to show what has going on. First is picture of me on the Sky Vine (it is like earth internet only. . . alive).
Little Grappa is not enough seeds old to go on Sky Vine but when he does it will make him not so naughty, we hope. Next pic is me working at home (I am Sky Vine Security Officer) and I am feeling the bad vibrations.
Now have to go Sky Vine mainstem in city because looks like trouble, will send pictures soon.

I am looking forward to the next installment, but I hope they are not in any danger.

Jack be Little

The first seeds of my Pumpkin Planet Story have been dispersed and it is clear that, as expected some have fallen on stoney ground. The most positive feedback so far has come from the Pumpkin People themselves, who have been most encouraging.
My last entry shows the first contact I received from Pumpkin Planet. Since then I have enjoyed a regular correspondence with the Butternut Ponka family who seem not only genuine but very pleasant and helpful people. They provide me with lots of detailed info about their lives and in turn I tell them about Earth, which mostly consists of answering questions from Little Grappa.
His obsession with Jack be Little pumpkins inspired me to produce the above picture showing the Pumpkin people eating a typical meal carved out of their living homes. Big Erik has assured me that no structural damage is caused by this practice as the walls quickly grow back. Apparently the ceilings are particularly tasty and nourishing.

Butternut Ponkas?

I was just about to post an update on the progress of 'Pumpkin Planet' when I received this image attached to the following email:-

Hi Greg, 
we are people of Butternut Ponka family calling all the way from Pumpkin Planet. Yes, we are sorry but you did not invent us, the Pumpkin People are exsisting already! and have been watching earth for many seeds(years).
We hope you like the picture. It shows me, Big Erik with Little Grappa on my shoulder and Madelaine at my side, they are my brother and sister. Madelaine is very much the earth watcher, she has herself a telescope and the wonderful Miss Mistony is teaching her good english. Little Grappa also likes earth but he does not speak greatly, being only 4 seeds old, except when he heard you have an earth pumpkin called Jack be little, then he went a bit crazy with excitement. Now he has pestering me to ask if he and Madelaine can contact you to ask about Jack be little, and send you some more pictures. I said you are probably busy doing your own pictures, but if you have a time I know they would be pleased to hear from you.
Best Wishes
Madelaine, Little Grappa, Butternut Pupkin and Big Erik

ps. we do not yet have MSN or Facebook on Pumpkin Planet 

I do not know what to make of this. Surely it must be a hoax. Who ever it is seems to have mastered my style of drawing embarrassingly well. There again if it is genuine then its a great honour as well as being an amazing opportunity!
