- If Sammy the Toucan heads east with Broadway Gal, we'll need a new sidekick for Crafty Gal.
- My vote for replacement is my namesake, Cauliette.
- Some lucky MPL staffer will need to be Cauliette's "helper."
- Not Scowl-Face.

Et Tu, Sammy?
Et tu, Sammy? Now that Broadway Gal is leaving my Library for the bright lights of Indianapolis and the Indiana State Library (ISL), will Sammy the Toucan be far behind? Sammy sticks pretty close to Broadway Gal. I think Sammy is Broadway Gal's boss bird, so she (Sammy) will want to continue bossing her (B.G.) around at ISL.
Sammy the Toucan
If, indeed, Sammy is also leaving us, then who shall be Crafty Gal's "sidekick" in our early literacy videos? Sidekicks are quite important to programs such as these. Crafty Gal could fly solo, but she really needs somebody with whom to banter.
Naturally, I have the perfect suggestion for a replacement. She even has her own press hat. That's true show business, I'd venture. All she needs now is a cane.
Well, not to put too fine a point on it, Cauliette also needs a "helper," if you catch my drift. The BizMeister created Cauliette, but I got the definite impression that she doesn't puppeteer. So where does that leave us?
Okay, MPL minions. Somebody is going to have to step forward to do the puppeteer thing with Cauliette. I'll expect you in my office by no later than next Wednesday, September 26, 2012, with a plan of action. You know where to find moi.
Just to be clear--Scowl-Face is right out. He can't keep ahold of anything, let alone Cauliette. A "helper" must have a sure grip and dexterity. So that rules ol' Scowlly out-of-bounds for this job.
So, to summarize:
Maybe helping Cauliette would mean bonus pay. (Hazard pay, more likely.) What about it, Boss Lady? Just saying.

P.S. Crafty Gal uploaded her latest early literacy video to our early literacy YouTube channel. Is this the last time we'll enjoy Sammy the Toucan playing sidekick? Say it isn't so!
