Mildred

 

the old buzzard next door.  No, we’re not being insulting.   She really is an old buzzard, and she really does live next door.   Mildred may be a buzzard, but she’s got eyes like a hawk – nothing slips by her.  Rumor has it she’s a retired librarian... Or a former drill sergeant in the merchant marines.  So, if it’s mischief you’re planning, you better find a way to skirt around Mildred’s house.  She makes very good cookies, however, and always has a plate of them out, should you stumble through her back door while chasing a cricket, trying to figure out what makes it sing.  She also knows the answer to just about everything, information culled from years of doing crossword puzzles...in ink.
