Bedtime at the Cocoon Inn in Honey Springs

Good evening. Remember I'm Camey. I was just in here starting a night time fire for you and leaving a little bedtime snack. coccon inn
It's awfully cold out there and from what I hear, you've had a big day exploring.
Why don't you put your feet up, relax and enjoy the goodies.
You deserve a good sleep.
But first, I'll join you for a little decaf. Shhh...don't tell Roxy Bloom I gave you decaf. It's just good to have to warm the bone and chit chat over. 
Did you have a good time today?
What was your favorite part?

Downtown Honey Springs

downtown
I dee-clare. . . who is crowdin' me while I get these mums in the ground. I swear y'all are tryin' to ruin my job as president of the Beautification Committee.
 
Oh, Dear. I'm sorry. I am missss-taken. I though you was someone else. Let me introduce myself. I'm Low-retta Bebe. Oh, these old pearls. Mmm. . .a good southern gal never leaves the house without her pearls or lipstick.
 
Honey, you could stand to use a swipe. But that's none of my business.
 
I'm just here minding my own business. You know more than hair is being twisted down a the Honey Comb, cause I heard you've been all over Honey Springs and that you ate a little too much of Jean Hill's Fall Mix, is that right?
gazebo 1
Hmm..you look like you could stand to gain a couple. Anyways, I've got to get these mums planted before the big festival. I heard that Roxy Bloom rented a brides costume to dress up in. You know what, I'll tell you but I'd never tell her crazy Great Aunt Maxine Bloom. She's all sort of crazy if you know what I mean. Roxy is going to scare Patrick Cane off if she don't drag him to the alter soon. She claims she's not ready to tie the knot. . .but if you ask me, there's more eligible woman than Roxy Bloom around her.
 
Don't get me wrong. She was good stock when she was a lawyer. But she turned them brains into beans. Coffee beans.
 
Well, anyways. You better get along. You can enjoy yourself here at the gazebo and enjoy the beautiful fall foliage. We just love how nature paints itself all over our little cozy town.
 
Remember, you didn't hear about gazeboRoxy's costume from me.
 
Or do you like to gossip? Because I'm just digging up some ground and I've got time to listen.

Welcome to the Bee Farm in Honey Springs

bee far
Welcome to the Bee Farm! I'm Kayla Noro. Me and my husband, Andrew, have been here a long time. We don't have no youngins' between us. These bees are our babies.
I hope y'all had a great ferry ride over and Big Bib wasn't too much of a grump. He can be that way sometimes.
Anyways, as you know, we are a little island off the main land of Honey Springs. We are a working. . .um. . .I'm sorry, I get a bit misty eyed when talking about the place.
You see, I love this farm. I love all the bees. And as you walk around and take a tour, you'll notice a few of our bee houses are vacant. The upkeep of a house costs up to $400 each and sometimes these winter months do a number on them, though we do all we can to survive.
I hate to bring it up, but if you like what you see, we are actually taking donations to help fund the Bee Farm.
There's a jar inside of the gift shop next to the register. You know Christmas is coming, so if want to gift someone a jar of honey, we are doing free shipping. So buy several jars.

bee farm 2
If you see Andrew out there, he's probably fiddlin' with some bees. Stop by and say hello. He loves to answer questions.
What is something you love to eat with honey in it?

Takin' The Ferry in Honey Springs

ferry

Come on now. I don't have all day. I've got-a fishin' line to throw in.
 
Ma'am, I'm sorry. It's gettin' late and I sometimes get a little ornery by the end of the day. I understand you're visitin' and all. I'm Big Bib.
 
I own this here marina and as you can see we're tryin' to get all the boats winterized for the boatin' folks. Just pull your car on up, but don't drive off the front. I'll have you over to the Bee Farm in no time.
 
What's that? Sorry the engine is a little rumbly. It used to purr like a kitten.
 
The Bee Farm leaving? Well, I did hear some rumblin' about it. But you know I don't tell no tales unless it involves me. Though, I do know that Roxy Bloom has been drivin' herself nuts about somethin' goin' on around here. There was a couple of out of town highfalutin' fellars with some suits on that rode the ferry over earlier.
 
But like I said, I keep to myself.
 
Enjoy the ride.
 
Have y'all ever ridin' on a car ferry before? We got them all over Kentucky.

Welcome to Hill's Orchard in Honey Springs

Hill's Orchard
Hello! Welcome to Hill's Orchard. I'm Jean Hill.
 
I hear y'all might be stopping by today. I'm busy getting ready for the hayrides for the Neewollah Festival. I'll be starting at the Cocoon Inn and using my horse drawn hay wagon to drive back here for the pumpkin patch.
 
Didn't you just love Roxy Bloom? If it weren't for her, I'm not sure the law would've figured out who killed my husband. Oh dear, I've said too much....
Why don't you gander on over to the pumpkin and get your photo taken?
pumpkin
(If you want your photo in the pumpkin, send Tonya Kappes a photo at Tonyak11.tk@gmail.com. She'll have your pumpkin to you right away to use on social media!)
 
I'll just run inside and grab a snack for you! We back shortly.

Honey Springs Boardwalk at Night

Roxy Bloom:
Y'all are still walking around? Oh, I hope you had fun! There's so many shops, it's hard to get through them all.
I was just locking up for the night. I have to be here by 4:30 a.m. to get those treats in the oven.
Don't you just the twinkling lights along the boardwalk? Those are provided by the Beautification Committee. Have you met Loretta Bebe yet?
Not sure?
Oh, you'd be sure if you did. I'm sure you'll see her downtown tomorrow. Didn't I hear you were going into downtown Honey Springs?
Don't miss out on going over to the Bee Farm across the lake while you're in town. You can catch the ferry down at the Marina. Tell Big Bib Roxy sent you.
Night! ~ Roxy Bloom

Hi do! I'm Bunny!

14520534_10209224848151855_923175272439734335_n

Hi-do! Welcome to Honey Springs.
I'm Bunny Bowowski. I work at the Bean Hive for Roxy. I'm a tad bit on the older side rather than the sunny side of life, but working there in my 70's has been good for me. I do love me some good conversation.
 
Which reminds me. I heard you're heading down to Crooked Cat Books.
 
Mmmhmmm. Now Roxy finding Alexis Roarke murdered is just hearsay because I haven't really talked to her, but I heard it from Crissy down at the Honey Comb Salon. She'd know because she and Roxy were friends twelve years ago.
 
It seems so long ago, but it ain't. Roxy hasn't been back to Honey Springs in twelve years, but the two of them, Crissy and Roxy, they picked up like no time had passed. You know, we do that in small towns.
 
Oh, yeah. The police station.
 
Anyways, Roxy's Aunt Maxi and Alexis Roarke really don't get along too well. Didn't get along, that is. In fact, they'd just had a public spat yesterday. Roxy went down to The Crooked Cat Book Store, Alexis's store, to offer what I'd call a peace offering in the form of a cup of coffee and doughnut. This is where is gets good.
 
Alexis. Dead. Murdered. Not only that, but BANNED was stamped on her forehead. You know, Alexis used that stamp on the banned books in The Crooked Cats' banned book section. Mmmhhhhmmm.
 
Now that's just hearsay. Though I do know that Roxy is down at the police station trying to get her Aunt Maxi out of some kind of hot water. After all, just a few months ago before Roxy moved back to Honey Springs, she was one of them fancy lawyers.
 
Mmmhmmmm. Nothin' like this has happened in Honey Springs. . .ever.
Now, you come on back. Remember that around these parts, the gossip is just as hot as the coffee. Toodles!
