Character Blog: Mrs. Butz

Dear Lord:

We’ve got a problem. Lila’s run off with my boy’s cash and the car. She’s got the family goods. Didn’t think she’d be a rebellious one. The months my son courted her, she didn’t say much. A quiet girl. According to my son, a virgin, too. Wouldn’t so much as give him a kiss, either. Nor did she let him touch her. Come to think of it, she didn’t smile around him much, either.

But I’m still believing she’s the one for my son. Still believing she’ll be great for the family business. I’m trusting you, Lord.

In the name of Jesus, let me find that girl. I pray for the wisdom and discernment to do so. (She bows her head and is silent for thirty seconds).

Yes, Lord. I hear you, Lord (She looks heavenward). Bring my .45 Magnum. Yes, Lord, I’ll keep her in line. Praise Jesus!

I can see Patty Duke or Jessica Lang as Mrs. Butz.


Patty Duke


Jessica Lang

What do you think?



  1. Love it! Jessica Lang of course or Jane Fonda...

  2. @ Debra: Thank you. I didn't think of Jane Fonda. She could be a possibility.

  3. Jessica Lang!!! I can't wait to read this story!!!

  4. @ Beth: Yup. Filling in them thar holes for now.

  5. Mrs Butz could use some quality time with a shrink.

    Good blog, and I can see Jessica in this one....

  6. The .45 Magnum should do the trick....

  7. @Norma: Probably, but Lila has some off the cuff surprises for them. Gram's the mastermind, of course.


I'm dying to know what you think.
