Near Disaster Averted
Late Sunday evening, two young ponies, Lucky and Clipper, camped out behind a
home at 165 Rainbow Lane and attempted to start a campfire as the evening turned cold. The fire
got out of control and caught the tent on fire while the ponies were inside. Fortunately, Edgar the
elephant was visiting friends nearby and heard the youngsters cries for help. He saw the flames
and quickly filled his trunk from the swimming pool at a neighbor's house and squirted down the
tent extinguishing the flames in time to save the ponies from any serious harm. The two
frightened boys were treated at Ponyland General Hospital for minor problems arising from
smoke inhalation, and released.
The annual Pony Garden Walk will be held this weekend, weather permitting.
Gardens included in this year's walk are those of Posey, Blossom, Honeysuckle, Brilliant Bloom
and Wildflower. Light refreshments will be served at each location. Donations to cover expenses
will be accepted.
Pony families who have moved into the Ponyland School District are encouraged to
contact Miss Hackney at 123-ABCD or at her office at 23 Education Place. Early knowledge of
ponies attending school will enable Miss Hackney to plan for class sizes.
I'm going to create a web site designed to preserve the MLP stories that were
written on the backs of the MLP and MLP friends packages so that others can read them. I will
need some help; I don't have the slightest idea about how to create a web site and also I need help
collecting stories for my web site. I will start on my web page as soon as I get a modem that can
handle the job. If you have any info or MLP package stories email me at
I don't think there is a first tooth Sundance. I have an ad that came in an MLP box and
only baby Lickety Split, Fifi, Bouncy, Quackers, North Star, and Tic Tac Toe are shown. Of
course, Sundance could have been in a separate series.
A surprise baby shower was given on Saturday afternoon for Minty who is
expecting her baby next month. Guests were entertained by music from Garth Hoofs.
Refreshments were served, games played, and gifts presented. Guests included Bowtie, Tickle,
Ribbon, Tic-Tac-Toe, Peppermint Crunch, Sky Dancer, and Boysenberry Pie.
You can use a toothbrush on them as long as the toothbrush is a super soft bristle variety
(kid's work best). Use some sort of handsoap; we use Dial and/or Soft Soap. Both work nicely.
Rub EXTREMELY gently with the way the flocking lays or you may run the risk of brushing it
off. Also, to get rid of pesky stains that won't come off with soap and water, you can use Goo
Gone. It is even able to be used on the symbols (of non So Soft ponies even!!) to clean the
symbols; just don't push too hard or too long. Apply directly to the bristles of the toothbrush or a
Q-tip. Q-tips work best. Gently massage area of stain for a few moments. Then rinse and
rewash-- Goo Gone will leave a film if not rinsed off but does not hurt the ponies at all-- unless
you use a whole lot of elbow grease on the symbols. We'll let you know if we think of any other
way to keep our ponies looking clean! :)
Directions: Preheat oven to 350. Mix oil, egg and vanilla in a large bowl. In a separate
bowl, stir the other contents together. Add oil egg and vanilla to the bowl with the sugar, etc.
Stir until it is well blended. The dough will be stiff. Shape dough into 1" balls and place on
ungreased cookie sheet. Bake at 350 for 11-13 minutes. For best texture, do not overbake.
Makes approximately 2-2 ½ dozen cookies.
Last night, right before a huge party Dainty was throwing in her garden to show off
her flowers, the Bushwoolies came in and destroyed her garden! They picked all the flowers
because they wanted to surprise Dainty by pulling the "weeds" out of her garden. Dainty lost her
temper at them and banned them from her garden.
Sundance has reportedly received word that her long lost brother, Butch, will be
returning to Ponyland. Although she is excited about the reunion, not all ponies share her
enthusiasm. Tex was quoted as saying, "Butch, that varmit, I thought I'd seen the last of him in
Bolivia!" but refused further comment.

Salty enlisted in the Ponyland Navy and is stationed at the Water Trough Naval

Pony-Mart is holding it's annual back-to-school sale all next week. All clothing will

You will need the wing and the stub that broke off of it. If you do not have the
original stub, don't despair; the wing can still be saved. :) You will need another stub that has
more shimmery plastic on it than the area that was broken off on the wing.
Fixing a wing with its original stub is very simple: Using super glue, trace a very
thin line of glue along the break on the wing. Gently match the stub to it, and hold it for about a
minute. You will need VERY steady hands to do this. If you aren't sure your hands are steady
enough, then DON'T DO IT because if you get super glue on the good, shimmery part of the
wing there is no way to get it off. Have someone else do it for ya. :) Let the glue set for an hour
or so... and voila! The break is stronger than it was when it was unbroken! Now, if you are using
a different stub, you will need to trim the shimmery plastic on the stub to match the break line on
the wing. After you have an EXACT match, follow the gluing directions above. Some wings are
a problem: they have a very large break spot. You will need to get ahold of some similar
shimmery cleap opalescent plastic to fill the gap. I have not yet checked but I am sure that such a
thing would be available from a craft store. I have seen a very similar shimmery flat wing; they
are on "fairies" being sold for $7 at toys r us right now. The fairy wings are comparatively very
large and would last a long time as wing repair material. :) Oh, I do wing repairs; if you do not
want to do the job yourself then send the wing to me! My repairs are dynamite, it's hard to even
see the break, unless you look closely! :)
Pink Dreams was on her way to Flutter Valley. She was going there for an
afternoon picnic with the other Flutter Ponies. After the picnic, she had to fly back to Paradise
Estate for a slumber party that some of the ponies had invited her to.
When she got to Flutter Valley, all the flutter ponies greeted her happily. "Come
over here, Pink Dreams!" called Wind Song to her friend. "See what we found!"
Pink Dreams quickly went over to Wind Song to see what she had. "Oh, it's a
kitten!" Pink Dreams shrieked happily. "Isn't she SO cute!"
"We knew you'd like her," Rosedust said. "This morning Forget-Me-Not found her
in the bushes over there." Rosedust pointed to the other side of Flutter Valley where a bunch of
berry bushes grew.
Pink Dreams smiled happily at the black and white kitten, who was playing with
Honeysuckle's curly tail.
"Well, let's get on to the picnic!" said Peach Blossom brightly. "We have tons of
food!" All the Flutter Ponies gathered around a large yellow picnic table and started digging into
the picnic baskets.
Pink Dreams had the playful kitten sitting next to her. "Hey, don't do that!"
exclaimed Tropical Breeze as the kitten tried to steal a cookie off her plate.
"We have to think of a name for her!" Wind Drifter said.
"Whitey?" Wind Song suggested.
"That's boring!" exclaimed Rosedust.
"Well, do YOU have any ideas?" Wind Song shot back.
"Come on everybody, let's not fight!" shouted Honeysuckle.
"I have a suggestion," Pink Dreams called. All the Flutter Ponies fell silent.
"What?" Rosedust asked.
"Playful," Pink Dreams answered.
"Well, what does everyone think of that?" asked Yum Yum.
"I think it's great!" called Hollywood, and everyone else agreed.
"Okay, then the kitten is now officaly named Playful!" said Rosedust.
"Oh, no!" yelled Pink Dreams. "I have to go now or I'll be late for the slumber
party! I'll see you guys tomorrow!"
"Bye, Pink Dreams!" all the Flutter Ponies shouted.
As Pink Dreams was flying away, Tropical Breeze called to her, "Wait! Take
Playful with you! You can bring her back tomorrow!"
Pink Dreams smiled as she took Playful, who settled down for a nap on her back.
"Thanks! She'll be safe with me!" Pink Dreams called to her friends as she flew out of Flutter
When Pink Dreams arrived at Paradise Estate, Pillow Talk, Night Cap, Sleepy
Head, and Sleep Tight greeted her. "You're just in time for the party to start!" said Pillow Talk.
Once upstairs in Pillow Talk's room, Pink Dreams took Playful off her back. "Look
who I brought!" she said to her friends.
"Oh, it a little kitten!" exclaimed Sleepy Head and Sleep Tight.
"What's her name? Where'd you get her?" asked Night Cap.
"Her name is Playful, and the other Flutter Ponies found her in Flutter Valley. They
let me bring her here for the party tonight," answered Pink Dreams. And Playful was the hit of
the slumber party!
