appeared high above the table with a hitherto unremarked on feather in the brim. Below the rim a whiskered nose, amused eyes, and a huge, gleaming, smile faded into view in exactly the way giant faces shouldn't if you've run out of toilet tissue.

'It's the Catterall Cat!' shouted the Madhatter excitedly. 'What do you think of that!'

'You've got my plume, you poltroon!' shouted an annoyed raccoon.

'A cat in a hat, who'd have thought of that?' asked Andrew Platt.

"We would!" said Tex, with reckless Bravado (who was sitting beside him).
The winged Caterall Cat, who'd flown all the way from Cheshire, miaowed at the peeved, plumeless raccoon:
"Miaow, miaow!" she said in explanation, while playfully pawing the plume.
"Squeak! Squeak! Squeeeeeeak!" replied Rex (aka Odysseus, aka Hanzel) with added emphasis.
Having sorted that out, they settled down around the table for coffee.
"The drinks are on me!" announced Andrew Platt, wobbling under the weight of the tall pile of filled mugs balanced on his battered bowler hat.

'Any for me?' asked the White Rabbit tremulously as he burst into the cafe and profusely apologised for being late for his date with the Mad Hatter.

"You'll get what you're given. No more. No less. That's pouring policy", advised the wobbling Andrew imperiously.
"You're so kind! It's so good to know where I stand", replied the sitting Rabbit obsequiously.

Get off my chair you pesky rabbit.' said Baba Cloânță in a slow, calm, voice.

The White rabbit turned to see who was talking and gulped. 'What's the magic word?' he trembled rebelliously.

'Stew'; growled Baba in a no nonsense tone.

"Știu!" * replied Rex (who was a Romanian Raccoon).

Meanwhile, the sun was stealthily rising over Stefan cel Mare in downtown Chișinău, where the little Lollipops were dancing round his statue to the tune, Trandafir de la Moldova.

"Uite! Zori de zi! Over yonder!" marvelled Babă telepathically in her Texan drawl, as the rosy hues of dawn rose rosily. Indeed, yet another day had begun there.

Meanwhile, back here, Mr Platt, humming a ditty**, was busying himself - tossing each mug, brimming with beverage, onto the table with a deft flick of his bowler. Mickey rose and busied himself with his squeegee, while Rex and the Rabbit busily applied their tongues to the ever-spreading steaming swamp of congealing cappuccino that was forming in consequence of Andrew's enthusiastic hospitality.

"But this one has barely begun!" grunted the runt feeling left out.

"Must go!" mused Tex, with a sense of dire urgency, slamming down his phone and cracking the glass to smithereens. "There's been a fracas back at the ranch... more specifically a shoot-out." he added with an air of feigned nonchalence, while feverishly saddling up his raccoon.

"So be it," marvelled Andrew, sullenly squeezing cold coffee out his bowler into the cracked teapot.

'Whoa there!' Cried the saddled Rex. 'You can't ride me all the way to Texas.' He desperately chittered'; 'Especially now I've caught your fever!'

"We can't let you go Tex." Said Reckless Bravado and his cousin, Dangerous Abandon. "We'll fight ya first." they warned, still in absolute sync. They stood between Tex and the cafe's newly installed saloon doors with nominative determination.

"Git out of my way, varmits!" spat a defiant Tasteless Tex.

"They can't"; said Mickey in an ephemeral voice, not his own, that seemed to come from a place far, far, away but which, strangest of all, still had his usual confused tone. "One of the writers has changed his mind. We are all staying right here."

"Grunt!" snuffled the satisfied runt as they all sat back down at the table which was now puddled with tea, 'tea', coffee and, for reasons no one ever understood, Vimto.

Tex assessed the situation for a few thoughtful minutes. Abandon and Bravado (the varmint duo) began painting their nails in flagrant nonchalence.

Tex and Rex further assessed the sticky situation. Suddenly, and on impulse, Tex on his furry chittering steed charged at full speed between the aspiring nail-saloon operatives, and through the new nominatively determined swing doors - which swung back with a velocitous vengeance into the vain, Vimto-swigging varmints, thereby wiping the smiles off their faces. Expelled Vimto flooded the sawdust-strewn floor, missing by a mile the spittoon specifically provided by the proprietor for the purpose.

"That was a close shave" chittered the chittering Odysseus*. Leaving the mêlée far behind, they found themselves cantering along the M3 to Gagaúzia**. With each pawbeat it gradually dawned upon them that they'd totally lost their way to Texas. But as luck would have it, who should they meet shuffling out from a tulgey wood at a place where four roads met, but Mumă Pădurii, Babă's fellow henchwoman.

"Pray, dear dame, dost thou know the way to Route 66, Americay - we're not muchly acquainted with these 'ere parts?" enquired Rex in an affected archaic accent, for he wanted to impress the venerable vrajitoare vechi by posing as a 'modern' tourist. Mumă, fondling her luxuriant beard, replied in garbled, gutteral Gagaúzian, uttering some vague words to the effect that they were on the wrong road, and must head for Tiraspol, famed capital of the PMR***. Her withered pointing finger hinted at making a U-turn. As they departed she generously gave them the Evil Eye for good luck, as was customary in those there parts. "Drum bun!" she cackled with a voice sounding like dried, decaying leaves.
